{59:6} And what God restored [of property] to His Messenger from them - you did not spur for it [in an expedition] any horses or camels, but God gives His messengers power over whom He wills, and God is over all things competent.

I suggest,
{59:6} And what God gave [of spoils] to His Messenger from them - you did not spur for it any horses or rides, but God gives His envoys authority over whom He wills, and God, over everything, is Powerful.

Quote:
{59:7} And what God restored to His Messenger from the people of the towns - it is for God and for the Messenger and for [his] near relatives and orphans and the [stranded] traveler - so that it will not be a perpetual distribution among the rich from among you. And whatever the Messenger has given you - take; and what he has forbidden you - refrain from. And fear God; indeed, God is severe in penalty.

I suggest,
{59:7} And what God gave to His Messenger from the people of the towns - it is for God (charity), for the Messenger, and for kin, orphans and the stranded - so that it is not revolving between the rich among you. And whatever the Messenger has given you - take it; and what he has forbidden you - refrain [from it]. And watch out for God; verily, God is severe in punishment.

{59:8} For the poor emigrants who were expelled from their homes and their properties, seeking bounty from God and [His] approval and supporting God and His Messenger, [there is also a share]. Those are the truthful.

I suggest,
{59:8} For the migrant needy who were expelled from their homes and their properties, seeking bounty from God and approval and supporting God and His Messenger. Those are the truthful.
