Quote:
{6:122} And is one who was dead and We gave him life and made for him light by which to walk among the people like one who is in darkness, never to emerge therefrom? Thus it has been made pleasing to the disbelievers that which they were doing.

I suggest,
{6:122} Is then one who was dead and We revived him and made for him light by which to walk among the people like one whose parable is in the darknesses, never emerging therefrom? Thus has been embellished for the disbelievers what they have been doing.

Quote:
{6:123} And thus We have placed within every city the greatest of its criminals to conspire therein. But they conspire not except against themselves, and they perceive [it] not.

I suggest,
{6:123} And thus We have set up in every town the most major of its criminals to scheme therein. But they do not scheme except against themselves, and they do not sense [it].

Quote:
{6:124} And when a sign comes to them, they say, "Never will we believe until we are given like that which was given to the messengers of God." God is most knowing of where He places His message. There will afflict those who committed crimes debasement before God and severe punishment for what they used to conspire.

I suggest,
{6:124} And when has come to them a sign, they said, "Never will we believe until we are granted like that which was granted the messengers of God." God is most knowing of where He places His message. There will soon hit those who committed crimes diminution before God and severe torment for what they have been scheming.
