Quote:
{7:65} And to the 'Aad [We sent] their brother Hud. He said, "O my people, worship God; you have no deity other than Him. Then will you not fear Him?"

I suggest,
{7:65} And to [the tribe of] `Aad [We sent] their brother Huud (Eber). He said, "O my people, worship God; you have no deity other than Him. Should you not then watch out [for Him]?

Quote:
{7:66} Said the eminent ones who disbelieved among his people, "Indeed, we see you in foolishness, and indeed, we think you are of the liars."

I suggest,
{7:66} Said the elite who disbelieved among his people, "Verily, we see you in foolishness, and verily, we think you are of the liars."

Quote:
{7:67} [Hud] said, "O my people, there is not foolishness in me, but I am a messenger from the Lord of the worlds."

I suggest,
{7:67} [Huud] said, "O my people, there is not with me [any] foolishness, but I am a messenger from the Lord of the worlds."

Quote:
{7:68} I convey to you the messages of my Lord, and I am to you a trustworthy adviser.

I suggest,
{7:68} "I convey to you the messages of my Lord, and I am being with you earnest, trustworthy."
