{7:159} And among the people of Moses is a community which guides by truth and by it establishes justice.

I suggest,
{7:159} And among the people of Moses is a community [who] guide by the truth and by it they fairly judge.

Quote:
{7:160} And We divided them into twelve descendant tribes [as distinct] nations. And We inspired to Moses when his people implored him for water, "Strike with your staff the stone," and there gushed forth from it twelve springs. Every people knew its watering place. And We shaded them with clouds and sent down upon them manna and quails, [saying], "Eat from the good things with which We have provided you." And they wronged Us not, but they were [only] wronging themselves.

I suggest,
{7:160} And We cut them up [into] twelve grandchildren communities. And We inspired to Moses when his people asked him for water, "Strike with your staff the stone." Thereupon flowed copiously therefrom twelve springs. [That way,] every people did know their drinking place. And We shaded them with clouds and sent down upon them manna and the quails, [saying], "Eat from the wholesome things that We provided you." And they did not wrong Us, but they have been to themselves wronging.
