{57:16} Has the time not come for those who have believed that their hearts should become humbly submissive at the remembrance of God and what has come down of the truth? And let them not be like those who were given the Scripture before, and a long period passed over them, so their hearts hardened; and many of them are defiantly disobedient.

I suggest,
{57:16} Has the time not come for those who have believed that their hearts may humble at the remembrance of God and what has come down of the truth? And that they may not be like those who were given the Book before, and the timespan was long to them, so their hearts hardened; and many of them are deviant.

Quote:
{57:17} Know that God gives life to the earth after its lifelessness. We have made clear to you the signs; perhaps you will understand.

I suggest,
{57:17} Know that God revives the earth after its death. We have made clear to you the signs; perhaps you will reason.
