Quote:
{2:240} And those who are taken in death among you and leave wives behind - for their wives is a bequest: maintenance for one year without turning [them] out. But if they leave [of their own accord], then there is no blame upon you for what they do with themselves in an acceptable way. And God is Exalted in Might and Wise.

I suggest,
{2:240} And those who are recalled (in death) among you and leave wives behind - a will for their wives: maintenance for the year without evicting [them]. But if they leave [of their own volition], then there is no violation upon you in what they do with themselves of a proper [action]. And God is Almighty and Wise.

Quote:
{2:241} And for divorced women is a provision according to what is acceptable - a duty upon the righteous.

I suggest,
{2:241} And for divorcées is a maintenance per the customary - rightfully upon the pious.

Quote:
{2:242} Thus does God make clear to you His verses that you might use reason.

I suggest,
{2:242} Thus does God make clear to you His verses that perhaps you might reason.
