Quote:
{7:130} And We certainly seized the people of Pharaoh with years of famine and a deficiency in fruits that perhaps they would be reminded.

I suggest,
{7:130} And We certainly did seize the house of Pharaoh with [tough] years and a shortage of fruits that perhaps they would remember.

Quote:
{7:131} But when good came to them, they said, "This is ours [by right]." And if a bad [condition] struck them, they saw an evil omen in Moses and those with him. Unquestionably, their fortune is with God, but most of them do not know.

I suggest,
{7:131} Then when has come to them the good thing, they said, "Due us is this." And if hits them something bad, they call an evil omen in Moses and those with him. Nay, verily their omen is with God, but most of them do not know.

Quote:
{7:132} And they said, "No matter what sign you bring us with which to bewitch us, we will not be believers in you."

I suggest,
{7:132} And they said, "Whatever you bring us of a sign to bewitch us thereby, we are not in you at all believers."

Quote:
{7:133} So We sent upon them the flood and locusts and lice and frogs and blood as distinct signs, but they were arrogant and were a criminal people.

I suggest,
{7:133} So We sent upon them the flood, the locusts, the lice, the frogs and the blood - categorized signs, but they deemed themselves big and were a criminal folk.
