Quote:
{42:15} So to that [religion of God] invite, [O Muhammad], and remain on a right course as you are commanded and do not follow their inclinations but say, "I have believed in what God has revealed of the Quran, and I have been commanded to do justice among you. God is our Lord and your Lord. For us are our deeds, and for you your deeds. There is no [need for] argument between us and you. God will bring us together, and to Him is the [final] destination."

I suggest,
{42:15} So to that then invite [, O Muhammad,] and straighten up as you have been commanded and do not follow their fancies but say, "I have believed in what God has sent down of Book, and I have been commanded to do justice among you. God is our Lord and your Lord. For us are our works, and for you your works. There is no argument between us and you. God [will] bring us together, and to Him is the destination."

Quote:
{42:16} And those who argue concerning God after He has been responded to - their argument is invalid with their Lord, and upon them is [His] wrath, and for them is a severe punishment.

I suggest,
{42:16} And those who argue about God after He has been responded to - their argument is quashed with their Lord, and upon them is wrath, and for them is a fierce torment.
