{7:73} And to the Thamud [We sent] their brother Salih. He said, "O my people, worship God; you have no deity other than Him. There has come to you clear evidence from your Lord. This is the she-camel of God [sent] to you as a sign. So leave her to eat within God's land and do not touch her with harm, lest there seize you a painful punishment.

I suggest,
{7:73} And to [the tribe of] Thamood [We sent] their brother Saalih (Methoselah). He said, "O my people, worship God; you have no deity other than Him. There has come to you clear evidence from your Lord: This is the she-camel of God [sent] to you as a sign. So, leave her to eat within God's land and do not touch her with harm, lest there seize you a painful torment."

Quote:
{7:74} And remember when He made you successors after the `Aad and settled you in the land, [and] you take for yourselves palaces from its plains and carve from the mountains, homes. Then remember the favors of God and do not commit abuse on the earth, spreading corruption."

I suggest,
{7:74} "And remember when He made you successors after [the tribe of] `Aad and settled you in the land, taking for yourselves from its plains palaces and carving out of the mountains homes. Then remember the graces of God and do not perpetrate in the land, corrupting."
