Quote:
{35:38} Indeed, God is Knower of the unseen [aspects] of the heavens and earth. Indeed, He is Knowing of that within the breasts.

I suggest,
{35:38} Verily, God is Knower of the undisclosed [aspects] of the heavens and the earth. Indeed, He is much Knowledgeable of what is within the bosoms.

Quote:
{35:39} It is He who has made you successors upon the earth. And whoever disbelieves - upon him will be [the consequence of] his disbelief. And the disbelief of the disbelievers does not increase them in the sight of their Lord except in hatred; and the disbelief of the disbelievers does not increase them except in loss.

I suggest,
{35:39} It is He who has made you successors in the earth. And whoever disbelieves - upon him will be [the consequence of] his disbelief. And disbelief does not add to the disbelievers in the sight of their Lord but abomination; and disbelief does not add to the disbelievers but loss.

Quote:
{35:40} Say, "Have you considered your 'partners' whom you invoke besides God? Show me what they have created from the earth, or have they partnership [with Him] in the heavens? Or have We given them a book so they are [standing] on evidence therefrom? [No], rather, the wrongdoers do not promise each other except delusion."

Excellent translation.

Yes, that's more true to the text.
