Quote:
{6:91} And they did not appraise God with true appraisal when they said, "God did not reveal to a human being anything." Say, "Who revealed the Scripture that Moses brought as light and guidance to the people? You [Jews] make it into pages, disclosing [some of] it and concealing much. And you were taught that which you knew not - neither you nor your fathers." Say, "God [revealed it]." Then leave them in their [empty] discourse, amusing themselves.

I suggest,
{6:91} And they did not esteem God His true esteem as they said, "God did not send down to a human being anything." Say, "Who sent down the book that Moses brought as light and guidance to the people? You [Jews] make it into pages, disclosing [some of] it and hiding much. And you were taught what you did not know - [neither] you nor your fathers." Say, "God [sent it]." Then leave them in their indulgence, playing.

Quote:
{6:92} And this is a Book which We have sent down, blessed and confirming what was before it, that you may warn the Mother of Cities and those around it. Those who believe in the Hereafter believe in it, and they are maintaining their prayers.

I suggest,
{6:92} And this is a Book We have sent down, blessed and confirming what is between its hands (before it), that you may forewarn the mother of towns (Mecca) and those around it. And those who believe in the Hereafter believe in it, and they [are those whose] prayer they keep.
