Quote:
{42:27} And if God had extended [excessively] provision for His servants, they would have committed tyranny throughout the earth. But He sends [it] down in an amount which He wills. Indeed He is, of His servants, Acquainted and Seeing.

I suggest,
{42:27} And if God had extended the provision for His worshipers, they would have trespassed in the land. But He sends down with measure what He wills. Verily, He is, of His worshipers, All-Aware, All-Seeing.

Quote:
{42:28} And it is He who sends down the rain after they had despaired and spreads His mercy. And He is the Protector, the Praiseworthy.

I suggest,
{42:28} And it is He who sends down water after they had desponded and spreads His mercy. And He is the Ally, the Praiseworthy.
