Quote:
{7:161} And [mention, O Muhammad], when it was said to them, "Dwell in this city and eat from it wherever you will and say, 'Relieve us of our burdens,' and enter the gate bowing humbly; We will [then] forgive you your sins. We will increase the doers of good [in goodness and reward]."

I suggest,
{7:161} And [mention, O Muhammad,] as it was said to them, "Dwell in this village and eat from it wherever you willed and say, 'Lay-down (Please relieve us of our burden),' and enter the gate prostrating; We would [then] forgive you your sins. We will soon give more to the benevolent."

Quote:
{7:162} But those who wronged among them changed [the words] to a statement other than that which had been said to them. So We sent upon them a punishment from the sky for the wrong that they were doing.

I suggest,
{7:162} But those who wronged among them substituted an uttering other than what had been said to them. So We sent upon them a scourge from the sky because they have been wronging.
