{39:20} But those who have feared their Lord - for them are chambers, above them chambers built high, beneath which rivers flow. [This is] the promise of God. God does not fail in [His] promise.

I suggest,
{39:20} But those who have watched out for their Lord - for them are chambers, above them chambers built up, beneath which rivers flow. [This is] the promise of God. God does not go back on an appointment.

Quote:
{39:21} Do you not see that God sends down rain from the sky and makes it flow as springs [and rivers] in the earth; then He produces thereby crops of varying colors; then they dry and you see them turned yellow; then He makes them [scattered] debris. Indeed in that is a reminder for those of understanding.

I suggest,
{39:21} Did you not see that God sent down, from the sky, water then routed it [as] springs in the earth; then He produces thereby plant varying in colors; then it flares up and you see it turned yellowish; then He makes it debris. Verily, in that surely is a reminder for those with intellects.
