{6:118} So eat of that [meat] upon which the name of God has been mentioned, if you are believers in His verses.

I suggest,
{6:118} So eat of that [slaughter meat] upon which the name of God has been mentioned, if you have been, in His verses, believers.

Quote:
{6:119} And why should you not eat of that upon which the name of God has been mentioned while He has explained in detail to you what He has forbidden you, excepting that to which you are compelled. And indeed do many lead [others] astray through their [own] inclinations without knowledge. Indeed, your Lord - He is most knowing of the transgressors.

I suggest,
{6:119} And what is [the matter] with you that you do not eat of that upon which the name of God has been mentioned while He has detailed for you what He has forbidden you, excepting what you have been necessitated thereto. And verily, many misguide [others] with their fancies without knowledge. Verily, your Lord - He is most knowing of the transgressors.

Quote:
{6:120} And leave what is apparent of sin and what is concealed thereof. Indeed, those who earn [blame for] sin will be recompensed for that which they used to commit.

I suggest,
{6:120} And leave the exterior of sin and its interior. Verily, those who earn sin will soon be recompensed for what they have been committing.

Quote:
{6:121} And do not eat of that upon which the name of God has not been mentioned, for indeed, it is grave disobedience. And indeed do the devils inspire their allies [among men] to dispute with you. And if you were to obey them, indeed, you would be associators [of others with Him].

I suggest,
{6:121} And do not eat of that upon which the name of God has not been mentioned, for verily, it surely is deviance. And verily, the devils surely inspire to their allies to argue with you. And if you were to obey them, verily, you would [then] surely be associating [others with God in worship].
