Quote:
{3:154} Then after distress, He sent down upon you security [in the form of] drowsiness, overcoming a faction of you, while another faction worried about themselves, thinking of God other than the truth - the thought of ignorance, saying, "Is there anything for us [to have done] in this matter?" Say, "Indeed, the matter belongs completely to God." They conceal within themselves what they will not reveal to you. They say, "If there was anything we could have done in the matter, some of us would not have been killed right here." Say, "Even if you had been inside your houses, those decreed to be killed would have come out to their death beds." [It was] so that God might test what is in your breasts and purify what is in your hearts. And God is Knowing of that within the breasts.

I suggest,
{3:154} Then He sent down upon you, after distress, security: a drowsiness, overcoming a bevy of you, while a bevy did worry about themselves, thinking of God other than the truth - the thinking of the ignorance era, saying, "Is there for us in the matter any [control]?" Say, "Verily, the matter, all of it, belongs to God." They hide within themselves what they would not manifest to you. They say, "If there was for us in the matter any [control], we would not have been killed right here." Say, "If you had been inside your houses, surely would have surfaced those upon whom has been decreed killing - to their beds." [It was] so that God might test what is in your bosoms and prove what is in your hearts. And God is All-Knowing of the pith of bosoms.

Quote:
{3:155} Indeed, those of you who turned back on the day the two armies met, it was Satan who caused them to slip because of some [blame] they had earned. But God has already forgiven them. Indeed, God is Forgiving and Forbearing.

I suggest,
{3:155} Verily, those of you who turned back on the day the two assemblies met, verily only Satan caused them to slip because of some [sin] they had earned. But God has already pardoned them. Verily, God is much Forgiving and Forbearing.
