{3:12} Say to those who disbelieve, "You will be overcome and gathered together to Hell, and wretched is the resting place."

I suggest,
{3:12} Say to those who have disbelieved, "You will be defeated and gathered for Gehenna (Hell). And how wretched is the cradle!

Quote:
{3:13} Already there has been for you a sign in the two armies which met - one fighting in the cause of God and another of disbelievers. They saw them [to be] twice their [own] number by [their] eyesight. But God supports with His victory whom He wills. Indeed in that is a lesson for those of vision.

I suggest,
{3:13} And there indeed has been for you a sign in two companies which met - one company fights in the cause of God and another disbelieving: They see them like twice them, in the view of the eye. And God aids with His help whom He wills. Verily, in that surely is a lesson for those with insights.
