Quote:
{79:27} Are you a more difficult creation or is the heaven? God constructed it.

I suggest,
{79:27} Are you a tougher creation or the sky? He built it.

Quote:
{79:28} He raised its ceiling and proportioned it.

Love Asad's translation of سمكها as "its vault." Also, Irving's translation of سواها as "smoothed it off." I suggest,
{79:28} He raised its vault then smoothed it off.

Quote:
{79:29} And He darkened its night and extracted its brightness.

I suggest,
{79:29} And He saturated its night and brought out its daylight.

Quote:
{79:30} And after that He spread the earth.

I suggest,
{79:30} And the earth, after that, He rolled it out.

Quote:
{79:31} He extracted from it its water and its pasture,

I suggest,
{79:31} He brought out from it its water and its pasture,

Quote:
{79:32} And the mountains He set firmly

I suggest,
{79:32} And the mountains He anchored:

Quote:
{79:33} As provision for you and your grazing livestock.

I suggest,
{79:33} A convenience for you and your livestock.
