{42:36} So whatever you have been given of a thing - it is a convenience of [this] the nearest life. But what is with God is better and more remaining for those who have believed and upon their Lord rely.

I suggest,
{42:37} And those who avoid the bigger sins and debaucheries, and when they get angry, they forgive,

I suggest,
{42:39} And those who, when infringement hits them, they do vindicate themselves,
