Quote:
{57:4} It is He who created the heavens and earth in six days and then established Himself above the Throne. He knows what penetrates into the earth and what emerges from it and what descends from the heaven and what ascends therein; and He is with you wherever you are. And God, of what you do, is Seeing.

I suggest,
{57:4} It is He who created the heavens and the earth in six days then settled on the Throne. He knows what gets into the earth and what emerges from it and what descends from the heaven and what ascends therein; and He is with you wherever you have been. And God, of what you do, is All-Seeing.

Quote:
{57:5} His is the dominion of the heavens and earth. And to God are returned [all] matters.

I suggest,
{57:5} To Him belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth. And to God are referred [all] matters.

Quote:
{57:6} He causes the night to enter the day and causes the day to enter the night, and he is Knowing of that within the breasts.

I suggest,
{57:6} He steps the night into the day and steps the day into the night, and He is All-Knowing of the essence of bosoms.
