{35:29} Indeed, those who recite the Book of God and establish prayer and spend [in His cause] out of what We have provided them, secretly and publicly, [can] expect a profit that will never perish -

I suggest,
{35:29} Verily, those who recite the Book of God, have established prayer and spent (in His cause) out of what We have provided them, secretly and publicly, hope for a trade that will never perish -

Quote:
{35:30} That He may give them in full their rewards and increase for them of His bounty. Indeed, He is Forgiving and Appreciative.

Excellent translation. I'd only make this slight edit,
{35:30} That He may give them in full their rewards and increase for them of His bounty. Verily, He is much Forgiving, very Appreciative.

Quote:
{35:31} And that which We have revealed to you, [O Muhammad], of the Book is the truth, confirming what was before it. Indeed, God, of His servants, is Acquainted and Seeing.

I suggest,
{35:31} And that which We have revealed to you [,O Muhammad,] of the Book is the truth, confirming of what is before it. Verily, God is, with His worshipers, surely is acutely Aware, All-Seeing.
