Quote:
{5:112} [And remember] when the disciples said, "O Jesus, Son of Mary, can your Lord send down to us a table [spread with food] from the heaven?" [Jesus] said," Fear God, if you should be believers."

I suggest,
{5:112} [Mention] as said the disciples, "O Jesus, son of Mary, can your Lord send down to us a table (smörgåsbord) from the heaven?" [Jesus] said," Watch out for God, if you have been believers."

Quote:
{5:113} They said, "We wish to eat from it and let our hearts be reassured and know that you have been truthful to us and be among its witnesses."

I suggest,
{5:113} They said, "We want to eat from it and our hearts may calm down and we may know that you have been truthful to us and be thereupon among the witnesses."

Quote:
{5:114} Said Jesus, the son of Mary, "O God, our Lord, send down to us a table [spread with food] from the heaven to be for us a festival for the first of us and the last of us and a sign from You. And provide for us, and You are the best of providers."

I suggest,
{5:114} Said Jesus, son of Mary, "O God, our Lord, send down to us a table from the heaven to be for us a feast for the first of us and the last of us and a sign from You. And provide us, and You are the best of providers."

Quote:
{5:115} God said, "Indeed, I will sent it down to you, but whoever disbelieves afterwards from among you - then indeed will I punish him with a punishment by which I have not punished anyone among the worlds."

The italicized word is a typo; should be "I will send it down."

I suggest,
{5:115} Said God, "Verily, I am sending it down to you, then whoever disbelieves afterwards from among you - then verily, I torment him with a torment by which I do not torment anyone [else] among the worlds."
