{31:29} Do you not see that God causes the night to enter the day and causes the day to enter the night and has subjected the sun and the moon, each running [its course] for a specified term, and that God, with whatever you do, is Acquainted?

I suggest,
{31:29} Did you not see that God causes the night to step into the day and causes the day to step into the night and has subjected the sun and the moon, each running [its course] for a named term, and that God, of what you do, is All-Aware?

Quote:
{31:30} That is because God is the Truth, and that what they call upon other than Him is falsehood, and because God is the Most High, the Grand.

One edit, since العلي means "the High". The most High would translate الأعلى, so I suggest,

{31:30} That is because God is the Truth, and that what they call upon besides Him is the falsehood, and because God is the Lofty, the Big.
