{42:51} And it is not for any human being that God should speak to him except by revelation or from behind a partition or that He sends a messenger to reveal, by His permission, what He wills. Indeed, He is Most High and Wise.

I suggest,
{42:51} And it is not for any human that God would speak to him except by inspiration or from behind a partition or that He sends a messenger to reveal, by His permission, what He wills. Verily, He is Lofty and Wise.

Quote:
{42:52} And thus We have revealed to you an inspiration of Our command. You did not know what is the Book or [what is] faith, but We have made it a light by which We guide whom We will of Our servants. And indeed, [O Muhammad], you guide to a straight path -

I suggest,
{42:52} And thus We have revealed to you a spirit from Our ordinance. You had not known what the Book nor faith are, but We have made it a light by which We guide whom We will of Our worshipers. And verily, you [, O Muhammad,] surely guide to a straight path -

Quote:
{42:53} The path of God, to whom belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. Unquestionably, to God do [all] matters evolve.

I suggest,
{42:53} The path of God, to whom belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth. Lo!, to God end up [all] matters.
