{35:27} Do you not see that God sends down rain from the sky, and We produce thereby fruits of varying colors? And in the mountains are tracts, white and red of varying shades and [some] extremely black.

I suggest this slight variation,
{35:27} Do you not see that God sends down water from the sky, and We produce thereby fruits of varying colors? And in the mountains are tracts, white and red of varying shades and [some] extremely black.

Quote:
{35:28} And among people and moving creatures and grazing livestock are various colors similarly. Only those fear God, from among His servants, who have knowledge. Indeed, God is Exalted in Might and Forgiving.

I suggest,
{35:28} And among people, beasts and cattle are various colors likewise. Verily, of His worshipers only the knowledgeable fear God. Verily, God is Almighty, much Forgiving.
