{42:47} Respond to your Lord before a Day comes from God of which there is no repelling. No refuge will you have that day, nor for you will there be any denial.

I suggest,
{42:47} Respond to your Lord before comes a Day of which there is no turning back from God. There is not for you any refuge that day, nor is for you any denial.

Quote:
{42:48} But if they turn away - then We have not sent you, [O Muhammad], over them as a guardian; upon you is only [the duty of] notification. And indeed, when We let man taste mercy from us, he rejoices in it; but if evil afflicts him for what his hands have put forth, then indeed, man is ungrateful.

I suggest,
{42:48} But if they have turned aside - then We have not sent you [, O Muhammad,] over them a keeper; only upon you is notice. And verily, when We let man taste a mercy from Us, he rejoices in it; but if hits them an evil for what their hands have put forth, then verily, man is much ungrateful.
