Quote:
{3:137} Similar situations [as yours] have passed on before you, so proceed throughout the earth and observe how was the end of those who denied.

I suggest,
{3:137} There have certainly passed on before you [similar examples of the] ways [of God], so walk in the land then look how was the sequel of the belying.

Quote:
{3:138} This [Quran] is a clear statement to [all] the people and a guidance and instruction for those conscious of God.

I suggest,
{3:138} This is a clear statement to the people, a guidance, and a preaching for the watchful [of God].

Quote:
{3:139} So do not weaken and do not grieve, and you will be superior if you are [true] believers.

I suggest,
{3:139} So do not abate and do not grieve, while you are [the ones with] the upper [hand], if you have been believers.
