{39:11} Say, [O Muhammad], "Indeed, I have been commanded to worship God, [being] sincere to Him in religion.

I suggest,
{39:11} Say, "Verily, I have been commanded to worship God, [being] sincere to Him in religion.

Quote:
{39:12} And I have been commanded to be the first [among you] of the Muslims."

I suggest,
{39:12} And I have been commanded to be the foremost of the Muslims."

Quote:
{39:13} Say, "Indeed I fear, if I should disobey my Lord, the punishment of a tremendous Day."

I suggest,
{39:13} Say, "Verily, I fear, if I should disobey my Lord, the torment of a tremendous Day."

Quote:
{39:14} Say, "God [alone] do I worship, sincere to Him in my religion,

Excellent translation.

Quote:
{39:15} So worship what you will besides Him." Say, "Indeed, the losers are the ones who will lose themselves and their families on the Day of Resurrection. Unquestionably, that is the manifest loss."

I suggest,
{39:15} So worship what you willed besides Him." Say, "Indeed, the losers are the ones who will have lost themselves and their families on the Day of Resurrection. Lo!, that is the manifest loss."

Quote:
{39:16} They will have canopies of fire above them and below them, canopies. By that God threatens His servants. O My servants, then fear Me.

I suggest,
{39:16} They [will] have above them canopies of fire and below them canopies. By that God scares His worshipers. O My worshipers, then watch out for Me.
