{4:104} And do not weaken in pursuit of the enemy. If you should be suffering - so are they suffering as you are suffering, but you expect from God that which they expect not. And God is ever Knowing and Wise.

Only a minor comment in that I like to use modern English and say "do not expect" instead of "expect not."

I suggest,
{4:104} And do not wane in the pursuit of the [enemy] folk. If you should be suffering - so are they suffering as you are suffering, but you expect from God what they do not expect. And God has ever been All-Knowing, Wise.

Quote:
{4:105} Indeed, We have revealed to you, [O Muhammad], the Book in truth so you may judge between the people by that which God has shown you. And do not be for the deceitful an advocate.

I suggest,
{4:105} Verily, We have sent down to you [, O Muhammad,] the Book in truth so you may judge between the people by what God has shown you. And do not be for the traitors an advocate.

Quote:
{4:106} And seek forgiveness of God. Indeed, God is ever Forgiving and Merciful.

I suggest,
{4:106} And seek forgiveness of God. Verily, God has ever been much Forgiving, Merciful.
