Quote:
{3:33} Indeed, God chose Adam and Noah and the family of Abraham and the family of `Imran over the worlds -

I suggest,
{3:33} Verily, God chose Adam, Noah, the family of Abraham and the family of Amram over the worlds.

Quote:
{3:34} Descendants, some of them from others. And God is Hearing and Knowing.

I suggest,
{3:34} Offspring some of them from the other. And God is All-Hearing, All-Knowing.

Quote:
{3:35} [Mention, O Muhammad,] when the wife of `Imran said, "My Lord, indeed I have pledged to You what is in my womb, consecrated [for Your service], so accept this from me. Indeed, You are the Hearing, the Knowing."

I suggest,
{3:35} [Mention, O Muhammad,] when the wife of Amram said, "Lord, verily, I have pledged to You what is in my womb, consecrated (for Your service), so accept from me. Verily, You are the All-Hearing, the All-Knowing."

Quote:
{3:36} But when she delivered her, she said, "My Lord, I have delivered a female." And God was most knowing of what she delivered, "And the male is not like the female. And I have named her Mary, and I seek refuge for her in You and [for] her descendants from Satan, the expelled [from the mercy of God]."

I suggest,
{3:36} Then once she laid her down (delivered baby Mary), she said, "Lord, I laid her down a female." And God is most knowing of what she laid down, "And the male is not like the female. And I have named her Mary, and I seek refuge for her in You and [for] her offspring from Satan, the outcast [from the mercy of God]."
