{5:65} And if only the People of the Scripture had believed and feared God, We would have removed from them their misdeeds and admitted them to Gardens of Pleasure.

I suggest,
{5:65} And if the People of the Book had believed and watched out [for God], We would certainly have expiated away from them their misdeeds and would certainly have admitted them to the Gardens of Bliss.

Quote:
{5:66} And if only they upheld [the law of] the Torah, the Gospel, and what has been revealed to them from their Lord, they would have consumed [provision] from above them and from beneath their feet. Among them are a moderate community, but many of them - evil is that which they do.

I suggest,
{5:66} And if they had upheld [the law of] the Torah, the Gospel, and what has been sent down to them from their Lord, they would have certainly consumed [provision] from above them and from beneath their feet. Among them is a thrifty community, and many of them - vile has been what they do.
