{40:34} And Joseph had already come to you before with clear proofs, but you remained in doubt of that which he brought to you, until when he died, you said, 'Never will God send a messenger after him.' Thus does God leave astray he who is a transgressor and skeptic."

I suggest,
{40:34} And Joseph did come to you before with clear proofs, but you remained in doubt of what he came to you with, until when he passed away, you said, 'Never will God send after him a messenger.' Thus does God let stray him who is reckless and skeptic."

I suggest,
{40:35} Those who dispute over the signs of God without an authority having come to them - great is loathing [of that] in the sight of God and in the sight of those who have believed. Thus does God stamp over every heart of an arrogant and tyrant.
