Quote:
{47:4} So when you meet those who disbelieve [in battle], strike [their] necks until, when you have inflicted slaughter upon them, then secure their bonds, and either [confer] favor afterwards or ransom [them] until the war lays down its burdens. That [is the command]. And if God had willed, He could have taken vengeance upon them [Himself], but [He ordered armed struggle] to test some of you by means of others. And those who are killed in the cause of God - never will He waste their deeds.

I suggest,
{47:4} So when you encounter [in battle] those who have disbelieved, then striking the necks [is in order] until, when you have overwhelmed them, then tighten the restraint, then either graciousness afterwards or ransom until the war lays down its burdens. That [is the command]. And if God had willed, He would have taken victory over them [Himself], but [He ordered armed struggle] to test some of you by others. And those who are killed in the cause of God - never will He waste their works.

Quote:
{47:5} He will guide them and amend their condition

I suggest,
{47:5} He will guide them and mend their pith,

Quote:
{47:6} And admit them to Paradise, which He has made known to them.

I suggest,
{47:6} And admit them to the Garden, which He has designated for them.
