Quote:
{7:85} And to [the people of] Madyan [We sent] their brother Shuayb. He said, "O my people, worship God; you have no deity other than Him. There has come to you clear evidence from your Lord. So fulfill the measure and weight and do not deprive people of their due and cause not corruption upon the earth after its reformation. That is better for you, if you should be believers.

I suggest,
{7:85} And to [the people of] Midyan [We sent] their brother Shu`ayb (Jethro). He said, "O my people, worship God; there is not for you any deity other than Him. There has certainly come to you clear evidence from your Lord. So fulfill the measure and weight and do not short people of their things and do not corrupt in the land after its orderliness. That is better for you, if you have been believers.

Quote:
{7:86} And do not sit on every path, threatening and averting from the way of God those who believe in Him, seeking to make it [seem] deviant. And remember when you were few and He increased you. And see how was the end of the corrupters.

I suggest,
{7:86} And do not sit on every path, threatening and shunning [people] from the way of God him who has believed in Him, desiring it crooked. And remember as you were few and He increased you. And look how was the sequel of the mischievous.

Quote:
{7:87} And if there should be a group among you who has believed in that with which I have been sent and a group that has not believed, then be patient until God judges between us. And He is the best of judges."

I suggest,
{7:87} And if there should be a bevy among you who has believed in what I have been sent with and a bevy that has not believed, then be patient until God judges between us. And He is the best of judges."
