I suggest,

{4:66} And if We had written upon them that you should kill yourselves or exit from your homes, they would not have done it, except a few of them. And if they had done what they were advised with, it would have been better for them and a stauncher confirming.

(Thanks to Dr. Laleh Bakhtiar for the "stauncher confirming" translation.)

{4:67} And then We would have given them from Our Own a great reward.

{4:68} And We would have guided them along a straight path.
