Quote:
{55:5} The sun and the moon [move] by precise calculation,

I suggest,
{55:5} The sun and the moon are by precise calculation,

Quote:
{55:6} And the stars and trees prostrate.

I suggest,
{55:6} And the stars and trees both prostrate.

Quote:
{55:7} And the heaven He raised and imposed the balance

I suggest,
{55:7} And the heaven - He raised it and laid down the balance

Quote:
{55:8} That you not transgress within the balance.

Excellent translation, because what the verse refers to is upsetting the natural balance.

Quote:
{55:9} And establish weight in justice and do not make deficient the balance.

I suggest,
{55:9} And establish weight in equity and do not discount the balance.
