{63:9} O you who have believed, let not your wealth and your children divert you from remembrance of God. And whoever does that - then those are the losers.

I suggest,
{63:9} O you who have believed, let not distract you your properties nor your children away from remembrance of God. And whoever does that - then those are the losers.

Quote:
{63:10} And spend [in the way of God] from what We have provided you before death approaches one of you and he says, "My Lord, if only You would delay me for a brief term so I would give charity and be among the righteous."

I suggest,
{63:10} And spend from what We have provided you before comes to one of you death then he says, "[My] Lord, if only You would delay me for a nigh term so I would give charity and be among the righteous."

Quote:
{63:11} But never will God delay a soul when its time has come. And God is Acquainted with what you do.

I suggest,
{63:11} But never will God delay a soul when its term has come. And God is All-Aware of what you do.
