Quote:
{6:50} Say, [O Muhammad], "I do not tell you that I have the depositories [containing the provision] of God or that I know the unseen, nor do I tell you that I am an angel. I only follow what is revealed to me." Say, "Is the blind equivalent to the seeing? Then will you not give thought?"

I suggest,
{6:50} Say [, O Muhammad], "I do not say to you [that] with me are the stores [of provision] of God. And I do not know the Beyond. And I do not say to you that I am an angel. I only follow what is revealed to me." Say, "does the blind equate to the seeing? Do you not then contemplate?"

Quote:
{6:51} And warn by the Quran those who fear that they will be gathered before their Lord - for them besides Him will be no protector and no intercessor - that they might become righteous.

I suggest,
{6:51} And warn with it (the Quran) those who fear to be gathered before their Lord - not for them, beside Him, is an ally nor mediator, that perhaps they may watch out [for God].
