I suggest,

{4:88} What is [the matter] with you [that] about the hypocrites you are two groups, while God has atrophied them by what they earned? Do you want to guide whom God has let stray? And whomever God lets stray - never will you find for him a venue.

{4:89} They would love [it] if you would disbelieve as they have disbelieved so you would be same. So, do not take for yourselves from among them allies until they emigrate for the cause of God. But if they turn away, then seize them and kill them wherever you found them and do not take for yourselves from among them an ally nor a helper.

{4:90} Except those who reach to a folk between yourselves and whom is a covenant, or those who come to you - their bosoms constricted [not wanting] to fight you or fight their folk. And if God had willed, He would have unleashed them over you, and then they would surely have fought you. Then, if they detached from you, did not fight you and offered you peace, then God has not made for you against them a venue.

{4:91} You will find others who want to be safe from you and be safe from their folk, whenever they have been returned to temptation, they would be atrophied in it. So, if they had not detached from you, offered you peace and inhibited their hands (stopped their aggression), then seize them and kill them wherever you overtook them. And those - We have made for you against them a clear authorization.
