Quote:
{4:9} And let those [executors and guardians] fear [injustice] as if they [themselves] had left weak offspring behind and feared for them. So let them fear God and speak words of appropriate justice.

Excellent interjections :) However, the verse does not say "as if", it says, "who if". So, I suggest,

{4:9} And let those [executors and guardians] fear [God] - those who if they [themselves] had left weak offspring behind would worry about them. So let them watch out for God and let them say an apt uttering.

Quote:
{4:10} Indeed, those who devour the property of orphans unjustly are only consuming into their bellies fire. And they will be burned in a Blaze.

I suggest,
{4:10} Verily, those who consume the properties of orphans unjustly are only consuming into their bellies fire. And they will soon singe in a Blaze.
