Quote:
{49:1} O you who have believed, do not put [yourselves] before God and His Messenger but fear God. Indeed, God is Hearing and Knowing.

I suggest,
{49:1} O you who have believed, do not put [yourselves] before God and His Messenger but watch out for God. Verily, God is All-Hearing and All-Knowing.

Quote:
{49:2} O you who have believed, do not raise your voices above the voice of the Prophet or be loud to him in speech like the loudness of some of you to others, lest your deeds become worthless while you perceive not.

I suggest,
{49:2} O you who have believed, do not raise your voices above the voice of the Prophet nor be loud to him in speech like your loudness with each other, lest your deeds should sink while you do not perceive [it].

Quote:
{49:3} Indeed, those who lower their voices before the Messenger of God - they are the ones whose hearts God has tested for righteousness. For them is forgiveness and great reward.

I suggest,
{49:3} Verily, those who lower their voices before the Messenger of God - those are the ones whose hearts God has tested for watchfulness [of Him]. For them is forgiveness and great reward.

Quote:
{49:4} Indeed, those who call you, [O Muhammad], from behind the chambers - most of them do not use reason.

I suggest,
{49:4} Verily, those who call you [, O Muhammad,] from behind the chambers - most of them do not reason.

Quote:
{49:5} And if they had been patient until you [could] come out to them, it would have been better for them. But God is Forgiving and Merciful.

I suggest,
{49:5} And if it were that they bore out until you come out to them, it would have been better for them. But God is much Forgiving and Merciful.
