Quote:
{56:81} Then is it to this statement that you are indifferent

I suggest,
{56:81} Is it then to this narration that you are indifferent?

Quote:
{56:82} And make [the thanks for] your provision that you deny [the Provider]?

I suggest,
{56:82} And you make your sustenance that you belie?

Quote:
{56:83} Then why, when the soul at death reaches the throat
{56:84} And you are at that time looking on -
{56:85} And Our angels are nearer to him than you, but you do not see -
{56:86} Then why do you not, if you are not to be recompensed,
{56:87} Bring it back, if you should be truthful?

I suggest,
{56:83} If only then, when it (the soul at death) reached the throat
{56:84} And you at that time [can only] look on -
{56:85} And We are nearer to him than you, but you do not see -
{56:86} Then if you are not accountable [to Us],
{56:87} Bring it (the soul) back, if you should be truthful!
