Quote:
{5:27} And recite to them the story of Adam's two sons, in truth, when they both offered a sacrifice [to God], and it was accepted from one of them but was not accepted from the other. Said [the latter], "I will surely kill you." Said [the former], "Indeed, God only accepts from the righteous [who fear Him].

I suggest,
{5:27} And recite to them the tale of the two sons of Adam, in truth, as they both offered an offering [to God], and it was accepted from one of them but was not accepted from the other. Said [the latter], "I will surely kill you." Said [the former], "Verily, God only accepts from the watchful [of Him]."

Quote:
{5:28} If you should raise your hand against me to kill me - I shall not raise my hand against you to kill you. Indeed, I fear God, Lord of the worlds.

I suggest,
{5:28} "Surely, if you extended your hand toward me to kill me - I am not in the least bit extending my hand toward you to kill you. Verily, I fear God, Lord of the worlds."

Quote:
{5:29} Indeed I want you to obtain [thereby] my sin and your sin so you will be among the companions of the Fire. And that is the recompense of wrongdoers."

I suggest,
{5:29} "Verily, I want that you end up with my sin and your sin so you [will] be among the inmates of the Fire and that is the recompense of wrongdoers."

I like that.
