Quote:
{78:39} That is the True Day; so he who wills may take to his Lord a [way of] return.

I suggest,
{78:39} That is the True Day; so whoever has [so] willed [ought to] have taken for himself toward his Lord a homecoming.

Quote:
{78:40} Indeed, We have warned you of a near punishment on the Day when a man will observe what his hands have put forth and the disbeliever will say, "Oh, I wish that I were dust!"

I suggest,
{78:40} Verily, We have warned you of an imminent torment: when the person looks at what his hands have put forward and says the disbeliever, "How I wish I had been dust!"
