Quote:
{51:56} And I did not create the jinn and mankind except to worship Me.

I suggest,
{51:56} And I did not create the sprites and mankind except to worship Me.

Quote:
{51:57} I do not want from them any provision, nor do I want them to feed Me.

Excellent translation.

Quote:
{51:58} Indeed, it is God who is the [continual] Provider, the firm possessor of strength.

I suggest,
{51:58} Verily, it is God who is the Oft-Provider, the One with Strength, the Robust.

Quote:
{51:59} And indeed, for those who have wronged is a portion [of punishment] like the portion of their predecessors, so let them not impatiently urge Me.

I suggest,
{51:59} Then verily, for those who have wronged is a stern [of punishment] like the stern of their fellows [before them], so let them not hasten Me.

Quote:
{51:60} And woe to those who have disbelieved from their Day which they are promised.

Excellent translation.
