Quote:
{3:156} O you who have believed, do not be like those who disbelieved and said about their brothers when they traveled through the land or went out to fight, "If they had been with us, they would not have died or have been killed," so God makes that [misconception] a regret within their hearts. And it is God who gives life and causes death, and God is Seeing of what you do.

I suggest,
{3:156} O you who have believed, do not be like those who have disbelieved and said about their brethren when they ventured in the land or were warriors, "If they had been with us, they would not have died or would not have been killed," so God makes that [misconception] a regret within their hearts. And it is God who revives and deadens, and God, of what you do, is All-Seeing.

Quote:
{3:157} And if you are killed in the cause of God or die - then forgiveness from God and mercy are better than whatever they accumulate [in this world].

I suggest,
{3:157} And surely if you were killed in the cause of God, or died - then surely a forgiveness from God and mercy are better than whatever they accumulate.

Quote:
{3:158} And whether you die or are killed, unto God you will be gathered.

I suggest,
{3:158} And surely if you died or were killed, surely unto God you are gathered.
