Quote:
{65:1} O Prophet, when you [Muslims] divorce women, divorce them for [the commencement of] their waiting period and keep count of the waiting period, and fear God, your Lord. Do not turn them out of their [husbands'] houses, nor should they [themselves] leave [during that period] unless they are committing a clear immorality. And those are the limits [set by] God. And whoever transgresses the limits of God has certainly wronged himself. You know not; perhaps God will bring about after that a [different] matter.

I suggest,
{65:1} O Prophet, when [any of] you (Muslims) have divorced women, then divorce them after their waiting period and keep count of the waiting period, and watch out for God, your Lord. Do not have them exit out of their [husbands'] houses, nor should they [themselves] leave [during that period] unless they commit an evident debauchery. And those are the limits of God. And whoever transgresses the limits of God has certainly wronged himself. You do not know; perhaps God will bring about after that a [different] matter.

Quote:
{65:2} And when they have [nearly] fulfilled their term, either retain them according to acceptable terms or part with them according to acceptable terms. And bring to witness two just men from among you and establish the testimony for [the acceptance of] God. That is instructed to whoever should believe in God and the Last day. And whoever fears God - He will make for him a way out

I suggest,
{65:2} And when they have [nearly] fulfilled their term, hold on to them in a proper [manner] or part with them in a proper [manner]. And bring to witness two just men from among you and establish the testimony before God. That, for you, is instructed to whomever believes in God and the Final day. And whoever watches our for God - He will make for him a way out,

Quote:
{65:3} And will provide for him from where he does not expect. And whoever relies upon God - then He is sufficient for him. Indeed, God will accomplish His purpose. God has already set for everything a [decreed] extent.

I suggest,
{65:3} And will provide for him from where he does not expect. And whoever relies upon God - then He is sufficient for him. Verily, God is accomplishing His purpose. God has already set for everything a precise [time].
