Quote:
{3:176} And do not be grieved, [O Muhammad], by those who hasten into disbelief. Indeed, they will never harm God at all. God intends that He should give them no share in the Hereafter, and for them is a great punishment.

I suggest,
{3:176} And let not sadden you those who hasten into disbelief. Verily, they will not harm God at all. God wants to not assign for them a share in the Hereafter, and for them is a great torment.

Quote:
{3:177} Indeed, those who purchase disbelief [in exchange] for faith - never will they harm God at all, and for them is a painful punishment.

I suggest,
{3:177} Verily, those who have purchased disbelief with faith will not harm God at all, and for them is a painful torment.

Quote:
{3:178} And let not those who disbelieve ever think that [because] We extend their time [of enjoyment] it is better for them. We only extend it for them so that they may increase in sin, and for them is a humiliating punishment.

I suggest,
{3:178} And never should reckon those who have disbelieved that [because] We stay them it is better for them. We only stay them so that they may increase in sin, and for them is a humiliating torment.
