I do like the translation "his establishment" for ملئه but what about "his entourage?"

I suggest,
{7:103} Then We sent after them Moses with Our signs to Pharaoh and his entourage, but they did wrong by them. So see how was the sequel of the mischievous.

Quote:
{7:104} And Moses said, "O Pharaoh, I am a messenger from the Lord of the worlds

I suggest,
{7:104} And Moses said, "O Pharaoh, I am a messenger from the Lord of the worlds,"

Quote:
{7:105} [Who is] obligated not to say about God except the truth. I have come to you with clear evidence from your Lord, so send with me the Children of Israel."

I suggest,
{7:105} "[Who is] duty bound not to say about God except the truth. I have come to you [all] with clear evidence from your Lord, so send [,O Pharaoh,] with me the Children of Israel."
