{3:132} And obey God and the Messenger that you may obtain mercy.

I'd change "that you may obtain mercy" to "that you be granted mercy."

{3:130} O you who have believed, do not consume usury, multiplied multiples, and watch out for God that perhaps you may prosper.

{3:131} And watch out for the Fire, which has been prepared for the disbelievers.

{3:132} And obey God and the Messenger that perhaps you may be granted mercy.
