Quote:
{7:120} And the magicians fell down in prostration [to God].

I suggest,
{7:120} Thereupon were cast down the magicians, prostrating.

Quote:
{7:121} They said, "We have believed in the Lord of the worlds,

I'd only add a closing quote at the end,
{7:121} They said, "We have believed in the Lord of the worlds,"

Quote:
{7:122} The Lord of Moses and Aaron."

I'd only add a quote at the beginning,
{7:122} "The Lord of Moses and Aaron."

Quote:
{7:123} Said Pharaoh, "You believed in him before I gave you permission. Indeed, this is a conspiracy which you conspired in the city to expel therefrom its people. But you are going to know.

I suggest,
{7:123} Said Pharaoh, "You believed in him before I permit you? Verily, this surely is a scheme you schemed in the city to expel therefrom its people. But you surely are going to know."

Quote:
{7:124} I will surely cut off your hands and your feet on opposite sides; then I will surely crucify you all."

Again, I'll add a quote at the beginning,
{7:124} "I will surely cut off your hands and your feet on opposite sides; then I will surely crucify you all in all."

Quote:
{7:125} They said, "Indeed, to our Lord we will return.

I suggest,
{7:125} They said, "Verily, to our Lord we are turning over."

Quote:
{7:126} And you do not resent us except because we believed in the signs of our Lord when they came to us. Our Lord, pour upon us patience and let us die as Muslims [in submission to You]."

I suggest,
{7:126} "And you do not resent about us except that we believed in the signs of our Lord when they came to us. Our Lord, pour upon us patience and recall us as Muslims."
