Quote:
{62:5} The example of those who were entrusted with the Torah and then did not take it on is like that of a donkey who carries volumes [of books]. Wretched is the example of the people who deny the signs of God. And God does not guide the wrongdoing people.

I suggest,
{62:5} The parable of those who were laden with the Torah and then did not carry it is like a donkey carrying volumes. What a wretched parable of a folk who belie the signs of God! And God does not guide the wrongdoing folk.

Quote:
{62:6} Say, "O you who are Jews, if you claim that you are allies of God, excluding the [other] people, then wish for death, if you should be truthful."

I suggest,
{62:6} Say, "O you who came back apologizing (the Jews), if you have claimed that you are allies of God, excluding the [other] people, then wish for death, if you should be truthful."

Quote:
{62:7} But they will not wish for it, ever, because of what their hands have put forth. And God is Knowing of the wrongdoers.

I suggest,
{62:7} But they will never wish for it, ever, because of what their hands have put forth. And God is All-Knowing of the wrongdoers.

Quote:
{62:8} Say, "Indeed, the death from which you flee - indeed, it will meet you. Then you will be returned to the Knower of the unseen and the witnessed, and He will inform you about what you used to do."

I suggest,
{62:8} Say, "Verily, the death from which you flee - verily, it is meeting you. Then you will be returned to the Knower of the Beyond and the present, and He will inform you about what you have been doing."
