Quote:
{64:1} Whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth is exalting God. To Him belongs dominion, and to Him belongs [all] praise, and He is over all things competent.

I suggest,
{64:1} Sanctifying for God is whatever in the heavens and whatever is in the earth. To Him belongs dominion, and to Him belongs praise, and He is over everything Powerful.

Quote:
{64:2} It is He who created you, and among you is the disbeliever, and among you is the believer. And God, of what you do, is Seeing.

I suggest,
{64:2} It is He who created you, and among you is a disbeliever, and among you is a believer. And God, of what you do, is All-Seeing.

Quote:
{64:3} He created the heavens and earth in truth and formed you and perfected your forms; and to Him is the [final] destination.

I suggest,
{64:3} He created the heavens and the earth in truth and formed you and refined your forms; and to Him is the destination.

Quote:
{64:4} He knows what is within the heavens and earth and knows what you conceal and what you declare. And God is Knowing of that within the breasts.

I suggest,
{64:4} He knows what is within the heavens and the earth and knows what you keep private and what you declare. And God is All-Knowing of the pith of bosoms.
