Quote:
{59:18} O you who have believed, fear God. And let every soul look to what it has put forth for tomorrow - and fear God. Indeed, God is Acquainted with what you do.

I suggest,
{59:18} O you who have believed, watch out for God. And let a soul look what it has put forth for a morrow - and watch out for God. Verily, God is All-Aware of what you do.

Quote:
{59:19} And be not like those who forgot God, so He made them forget themselves. Those are the defiantly disobedient.

I suggest,
{59:19} And do not be like those who forgot God, so He made them forget themselves. Those are the deviant.

Quote:
{59:20} Not equal are the companions of the Fire and the companions of Paradise. The companions of Paradise - they are the attainers [of success].

I suggest,
{59:20} They do not equate: the inmates of the Fire and the fellows of the Garden. The fellows of the Garden are the winners.
