Quote:
{49:9} And if two factions among the believers should fight, then make settlement between the two. But if one of them oppresses the other, then fight against the one that oppresses until it returns to the ordinance of God. And if it returns, then make settlement between them in justice and act justly. Indeed, God loves those who act justly.

I suggest,
{49:9} And if two bevies among the believers should fight, then reconcile between them. But if one of them trespasses against the other, then fight the one that trespasses until it reverses back to the ordinance of God. And when it reverses back, then reconcile between them with justice and act equitably. Verily, God loves the equitable.

Quote:
{49:10} The believers are but brothers, so make settlement between your brothers. And fear God that you may receive mercy.

I suggest,
{49:10} Verily, the believers are but brothers, so reconcile between your two brothers. And watch out for God so that you may be granted mercy.
