Quote:
{5:78} Cursed were those who disbelieved among the Children of Israel by the tongue of David and of Jesus, the son of Mary. That was because they disobeyed and [habitually] transgressed.

I suggest,
{5:78} Cursed were those who disbelieved among the Children of Israel by the tongue of David and of Jesus, son of Mary. That is because they disobeyed and have been transgressing.

Quote:
{5:79} They used not to prevent one another from wrongdoing that they did. How wretched was that which they were doing.

I suggest,
{5:79} They used not to curb one another from a vice they did. How surely wretched is what they have been doing!

Quote:
{5:80} You see many of them becoming allies of those who disbelieved. How wretched is that which they have put forth for themselves in that God has become angry with them, and in the punishment they will abide eternally.

I suggest,
{5:80} You see many of them ally with those who have disbelieved. How surely wretched is what they have put forth for themselves in that God has become angry with them, and in the torment they are lasting.

Quote:
{5:81} And if they had believed in God and the Prophet and in what was revealed to him, they would not have taken them as allies; but many of them are defiantly disobedient.

I suggest,
{5:81} And if they had believed in God and the Prophet and in what was sent down to him, they would not have taken them for allies; but many of them are deviant.
