Quote:
{61:1} Whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth exalts God, and He is the Exalted in Might, the Wise.

I suggest,
{61:1} Whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth has sanctified for God, and He is the Almighty, the Wise.

Quote:
{61:2} O you who have believed, why do you say what you do not do?

A simple, but excellent translation.

Quote:
{61:3} Great is hatred in the sight of God that you say what you do not do.

I suggest,
{61:3} It has been regarded a big abomination in the sight of God that you say what you do not do.

Quote:
{61:4} Indeed, God loves those who fight in His cause in a row as though they are a [single] structure joined firmly.

I suggest,
{61:4} Verily, God loves those who fight in His cause in an array as though they are a structure stacked.
