{71:26} And Noah said, "My Lord, do not leave upon the earth from among the disbelievers an inhabitant.

I suggest,
{71:26} And Noah said, "[My] Lord, do not leave on the earth from among the disbelievers an inhabitant."

Quote:
{71:27} Indeed, if You leave them, they will mislead Your servants and not beget except [every] wicked one and [confirmed] disbeliever.

Love Pickthall's translation of فاجرا كفارا as "lewd ingrate." I suggest,
{71:27} "Verily, if You leave them, they would mislead Your worshipers and not beget but a lewd ingrate."

Quote:
{71:28} My Lord, forgive me and my parents and whoever enters my house a believer and the believing men and believing women. And do not increase the wrongdoers except in destruction."

I suggest,
{71:28} "[My] Lord, forgive me and my parents and whoever enters my home a believer and the believing men and believing women. And do not add to the wrongdoers but annihilation."
