Good translations. I'd only make slight edits,

{29:18} And if you [people] belie [the message] - then communities did belie before you. And there is not upon the Messenger but clear notice.

{29:19} Also, have they not seen how God begins creation and then repeats it? Verily that, for God, is easy.

{29:20} Say, "Roam in the land then observe how He began creation. Then God constructs the final creation. Verily God, over everything, is Powerful."

{29:21} He torments whom He wills and grants mercy to whom He wills, and to Him you are returned.

{29:22} And you are not in the least out-powering [God] in the earth or in the heaven. And you have not besides God any ally nor any helper.

{29:23} And those who have disbelieved in the signs of God and the meeting with Him - those have despaired of My mercy, and for them is a painful torment.
