Quote:
{5:35} O you who have believed, fear God and seek the means [of nearness] to Him and strive in His cause that you may succeed.

I suggest,
{5:35} O you who have believed, watch out for God and reach out to Him for the means and strive in His cause that perhaps you may prosper.

Quote:
{5:36} Indeed, those who disbelieve - if they should have all that is in the earth and the like of it with it by which to ransom themselves from the punishment of the Day of Resurrection, it will not be accepted from them, and for them is a painful punishment

I suggest,
{5:36} Verily, those who have disbelieved - if they should have what is in the earth entirely and the like of it with it to ransom themselves thereby from the torment of the Day of Resurrection, it will not be accepted from them, and for them is a painful torment.

Quote:
{5:37} They will wish to get out of the Fire, but never are they to emerge therefrom, and for them is an enduring punishment.

I suggest,
{5:37} They want to get out of the Fire, but they are not in the slightest getting out of it, and for them is an abiding torment.

Nice translation. May God save us from that.
