Quote:
{3:181} God has certainly heard the statement of those [Jews] who said, "Indeed, God is poor, while we are rich." We will record what they said and their killing of the prophets without right and will say, "Taste the punishment of the Burning Fire.

I'd only make minor changes,
{3:181} God has certainly heard the uttering of those who said, "Verily, God is needy and we are rich." We will write what they said and their killing of the prophets without right and say, "Taste the torment of burning."

Quote:
{3:182} That is for what your hands have put forth and because God is not ever unjust to [His] servants."

I suggest,
{3:182} That is because of what your hands have put forth and [know] that God is not in the least unjust to the vassals.

Quote:
{3:183} [They are] those who said, "Indeed, God has taken our promise not to believe any messenger until he brings us an offering which fire [from heaven] will consume." Say, "There have already come to you messengers before me with clear proofs and [even] that of which you speak. So why did you kill them, if you should be truthful?"

I suggest,
{3:183} [They are] those who said, "Verily, God has entrusted to us that we not believe any messenger until he brings us an offering which fire consumes." Say, "There have already come to you messengers before me with the clear proofs and with what you said, so why did you kill them, if you have been truthful?"

Quote:
{3:184} Then if they deny you, [O Muhammad] - so were messengers denied before you, who brought clear proofs and written ordinances and the enlightening Scripture.

I suggest,
{3:184} Then if they have belied you [, O Muhammad] - so were messengers belied before you, who brought the clear proofs, the Psalms and the enlightening Book.
