Quote:
{3:149} O you who have believed, if you obey those who disbelieve, they will turn you back on your heels, and you will [then] become losers.

I suggest,
{3:149} O you who have believed, if you obey those who have disbelieved, they would turn you on your heels, then you turn out losers.

Quote:
{3:150} But God is your protector, and He is the best of helpers.

I suggest,
{3:150} Rather, God is your protector, and He is the best of helpers.

Quote:
{3:151} We will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve for what they have associated with God of which He had not sent down [any] authority. And their refuge will be the Fire, and wretched is the residence of the wrongdoers.

The last sentence is an exclamation (أسلوب ذم) in Arabic, so I suggest:

{3:151} We will cast the horror into the hearts of those who have disbelieved, for what they have associated with God of which He had not sent down [any] authority. And their refuge is the Fire, and how wretched an abode [that is] of the wrongdoers!
