{57:26} And We have already sent Noah and Abraham and placed in their descendants prophethood and scripture; and among them is he who is guided, but many of them are defiantly disobedient.

I suggest,
{57:26} And We have already sent Noah and Abraham and set in their offspring prophethood and the Book; and among them is he who is guided, but many of them are deviant.

Quote:
{57:27} Then We sent following their footsteps Our messengers and followed [them] with Jesus, the son of Mary, and gave him the Gospel. And We placed in the hearts of those who followed him compassion and mercy and monasticism, which they innovated; We did not prescribe it for them except [that they did so] seeking the approval of God. But they did not observe it with due observance. So We gave the ones who believed among them their reward, but many of them are defiantly disobedient.

I suggest,
{57:27} Then We followed up upon their tracks with Our messengers and followed up with Jesus, the son of Mary, and gave him the Gospel. And We set in the hearts of those who followed him compassion and mercy. And monasticism they invented; We did not prescribe it for them except [that they did so] seeking the approval of God. But then they did not tend to it with its due tendency. So We gave the ones who believed among them their reward, but many of them are deviant.
