Quote:
{50:16} And We have already created man and know what his soul whispers to him, and We are closer to him than [his] jugular vein

I suggest,
{50:16} We created man and We know what his soul whispers to him; We are closer to him than the jugular vein.

Quote:
{50:17} When the two receivers receive, seated on the right and on the left.

I suggest,
{50:17} As the two receivers (angels) receive [their orders from God], on the right and the left are seated.

Quote:
{50:18} Man does not utter any word except that with him is an observer prepared [to record].

Pickthall's translation is best. I suggest,
{50:18} He does not utter a word but there is with him an observer ready.
