I suggest,
{3:172} Those [believers] who responded to God and the Messenger after has hit them the injury. For those who did good among them and watched out [for God] is a great reward -

Quote:
{3:173} Those to whom hypocrites said, "Indeed, the people have gathered against you, so fear them." But it [merely] increased them in faith, and they said, "Sufficient for us is God, and [He is] the best Disposer of affairs."

I suggest,
{3:173} Those to whom people (hypocrites) said, "Verily, the people (Meccan polytheists) have already gathered against you, so fear them." But it [merely] increased them in faith, and they said, "Sufficient for us is God, and how excellent is the Trustee [He is]!"

Quote:
{3:174} So they returned with favor from God and bounty, no harm having touched them. And they pursued the pleasure of God, and God is the possessor of great bounty.

I suggest,
{3:174} So they bounced back with favor from God and bounty, did not touch them [any] harm. And they pursued the pleasure of God, and God is One who has great bounty.

Quote:
{3:175} That is only Satan who frightens [you] of his supporters. So fear them not, but fear Me, if you are [indeed] believers.

I suggest,
{3:175} Verily, that is only Satan frightening his allies. So do not fear them, but fear Me, if you have been believers.
