{40:66} Say, [O Muhammad], "Indeed, I have been forbidden to worship those you call upon besides God once the clear proofs have come to me from my Lord, and I have been commanded to submit to the Lord of the worlds."

I suggest,
{40:66} Say, [O Muhammad], "Verily, I have been forbidden to worship those you call upon besides God once the clear proofs have come to me from my Lord, and I have been commanded to submit to the Lord of the worlds."

Quote:
{40:67} It is He who created you from dust, then from a sperm-drop, then from a clinging clot; then He brings you out as a child; then [He develops you] that you reach your [time of] maturity, then [further] that you become elders. And among you is he who is taken in death before [that], so that you reach a specified term; and perhaps you will use reason.

I suggest,
{40:67} It is He who created you from dust, then from a sperm-drop, then from a clinging clot; then He brings you out as a child; then [further] that you reach your strongest, then [further] that you become elders. And among you is he who is recalled [in death] before [that], so that you reach a specified term; and perhaps you will reason.

Quote:
{40:68} He it is who gives life and causes death; and when He decrees a matter, He but says to it, "Be," and it is.

Excellent translation.
