Quote:
{7:37} And who is more unjust than one who invents about God a lie or denies His verses? Those will attain their portion of the decree until when Our messengers come to them to take them in death, they will say, "Where are those you used to invoke besides God?" They will say, "They have departed from us," and will bear witness against themselves that they were disbelievers.

I suggest,
{7:37} And who is more unjust than one who has invented against God untruth or belied His signs? Those - their portion of the Book [of decrees] reaches them. Until, when there have come to them Our envoys (angles) to recall them [in death], they would say, "Where is what you have been invoking besides God?" They would say, "They strayed from us" and they would bear witness against themselves that they were disbelievers.

Quote:
{7:38} [God] will say, "Enter among nations which had passed on before you of jinn and mankind into the Fire." Every time a nation enters, it will curse its sister until, when they have all overtaken one another therein, the last of them will say about the first of them "Our Lord, these had misled us, so give them a double punishment of the Fire." He will say, "For each is double, but you do not know."

I suggest,
{7:38} [God] would [then] say, "Enter among communities which had passed before you of sprites and mankind into the Fire." Every time a community has entered, it would curse its sister until, when they have all fell in together, the last of them would say about the first of them, "Our Lord, these had misled us, so give them a double torment of the Fire." He would say, "For each is a double, but you do not know [it]."

Quote:
{7:39} And the first of them will say to the last of them, "Then you had not any favor over us, so taste the punishment for what you used to earn."

I suggest,
{7:39} And the first of them would say to the last of them, "So! There was not for you over us an advantage. Therefore, taste the torment for what you have been earning."
