{6:63} Say, "Who rescues you from the darknesses of the land and sea [when] you call upon Him imploring [aloud] and privately, 'If He should save us from this [crisis], we will surely be among the thankful.'?"

Excellent translation. I'd only make minor edits,
{6:63} Say, "Who rescues you from the darknesses of shore and sea [when] you call upon Him imploring [aloud] and privately, 'If He should rescue us from this [crisis], we will surely be among the thankful.' "

Quote:
{6:64} Say, "It is God who saves you from it and from every distress; then you [still] associate others with Him."

Excellent translation as well. I'd again make minor edits,
{6:64} Say, "[It is] God [who] rescues you from it and from every distress; but then you [still] associate [others with Him in worship]."

Quote:
{6:65} Say, "He is the [one] Able to send upon you affliction from above you or from beneath your feet or to confuse you [so you become] sects and make you taste the violence of one another." Look how We diversify the signs that they might understand.

I suggest again some minor edits to that otherwise excellent translation,

{6:65} Say, "He is the [one] Able to send upon you affliction from above you or from beneath your feet or to confuse you into sects and make you taste the violence of one another." Look how We diversify the signs that perhaps they might comprehend.
