{67:15} It is He who made the earth tame for you - so walk among its slopes and eat of His provision - and to Him is the resurrection.

I suggest,
{67:15} It is He who made the earth tame for you - so walk in its regions and eat of His provision - and to Him is the Upspring (resurrection).

Quote:
{67:16} Do you feel secure that He who [holds authority] in the heaven would not cause the earth to swallow you and suddenly it would sway?

I suggest,
{67:16} Have you become unafraid that He who is in the heaven would squash with you the earth then, lo!, it is swaying?

Quote:
{67:17} Or do you feel secure that He who [holds authority] in the heaven would not send against you a storm of stones? Then you would know how [severe] was My warning.

I suggest,
{67:17} Or have you become unafraid that He who is in the heaven would send upon you a pelting whirlwind? Then you would know how was [My] warning.

Quote:
{67:18} And already had those before them denied, and how [terrible] was My reproach.

I suggest,
{67:18} And already had belied those before them, but then how was [My] objection?
