Quote:
{6:114} [Say], "Then is it other than God I should seek as judge while it is He who has revealed to you the Book explained in detail?" And those to whom We [previously] gave the Scripture know that it is sent down from your Lord in truth, so never be among the doubters.

I suggest,
{6:114} [Say], "Is it then other than God I should seek as judge while it is He who has sent down to you the Book detailed?" And those to whom We [previously] granted the Book know that it is sent down from your Lord in truth, so never be among the skeptics.

Quote:
{6:115} And the word of your Lord has been fulfilled in truth and in justice. None can alter His words, and He is the Hearing, the Knowing.

I suggest,
{6:115} And the Word of your Lord has been completed in truth and justice. There is no substituting of His Words, and He is the All-Hearing, the All-Knowing.

I agree, and capitalization is indicated here since these are names of the Almighty.

We should also capitalize the first occurrence, i.e., "And the Word of your Lord..."
