{3:164} Certainly did God confer [great] favor upon the believers when He sent among them a Messenger from themselves, reciting to them His verses and purifying them and teaching them the Book and wisdom, although they had been before in manifest error.

I suggest,
{3:164} Certainly did God confer favor upon the believers as He sent among them a Messenger from themselves, reciting to them His verses, purifying them and teaching them the Book and wisdom, being that they before had surely been in manifest misguidance.

Quote:
{3:165} Why [is it that] when a [single] disaster struck you [on the day of Uhud], although you had struck [the enemy in the battle of Badr] with one twice as great, you said, "From where is this?" Say, "It is from yourselves." Indeed, God is over all things competent.

I suggest,
{3:165} And is it that once a disaster hit you (on the battle of Uhud), which you had certainly hit [the enemy] twice like it (on the battle of Badr), you said, "How come this?" Say, "It is from yourselves." Verily, God is over everything Powerful.
