{40:77} So be patient, [O Muhammad]; indeed, the promise of God is truth. And whether We show you some of what We have promised them or We take you in death, it is to Us they will be returned.

I suggest,
{40:77} So be patient [, O Muhammad]; verily, the promise of God is truth. And whether We show you some of what We have promised them or We recall you [in death], to Us they are returned.

Quote:
{40:78} And We have already sent messengers before you. Among them are those [whose stories] We have related to you, and among them are those [whose stories] We have not related to you. And it was not for any messenger to bring a sign [or verse] except by permission of God. So when the command of God comes, it will be concluded in truth, and the falsifiers will thereupon lose [all].

And it was not for any messenger to bring a sign except by permission of God. So when the command of God comes, it will be concluded in truth, and the negaters will thereupon lose.
