{6:136} And the polytheists assign to God from that which He created of crops and livestock a share and say, "This is for God," by their claim, " and this is for our partners [associated with Him]." But what is for their "partners" does not reach God, while what is for God - this reaches their "partners." Evil is that which they rule.

I suggest,
{6:136} And they (the polytheists) assigned to God from what He permeated of crop and cattle a share and said, "This is for God," by their claim, " and this is for our partners [whom they associated with God in worship]." But what was for their "partners", then it does not reach to God, while what was for God - then it reaches to their "partners." Vile has been what they judge.

Quote:
{6:137} And likewise, to many of the polytheists their partners have made [to seem] pleasing the killing of their children in order to bring about their destruction and to cover them with confusion in their religion. And if God had willed, they would not have done so. So leave them and that which they invent.

I suggest,
{6:137} And likewise have embellished to many of the polytheists the killing of their children, their partners have, in order to doom them and to confuse for them their religion. And if God had willed, they would not have done it. So leave them and what they invent.
