{7:31} O children of Adam, take your adornment at every mosque, and eat and drink, but be not excessive. Indeed, He likes not those who commit excess.

I suggest,
{7:31} O children of Adam, take your adornment at every mosque, and eat and drink, but be not exceed. Verily, He does not like the excessive.

Quote:
{7:32} Say, "Who has forbidden the adornment of God which He has produced for His servants and the good [lawful] things of provision?" Say, "They are for those who believe during the worldly life [but] exclusively for them on the Day of Resurrection." Thus do We detail the verses for a people who know.

Again, no particular reason here to limit the meaning of آيات to "verses." Should be "signs."

I suggest,
{7:32} Say, "Who has forbidden the adornment of God which He has produced for His worshipers and the wholesome things of provision?" Say, "They are for those who have believed during [this] the nearest life [but] exclusively [for them on] the Day of Resurrection." Thus We detail the signs for a folk who know.

Quote:
{7:33} Say, "My Lord has only forbidden immoralities - what is apparent of them and what is concealed - and sin, and oppression without right, and that you associate with God that for which He has not sent down authority, and that you say about God that which you do not know."

I suggest,
{7:33} Say, "Verily, My Lord has only forbidden debaucheries - what has surfaced of them and what has submerged - and sin, and overreaching without right, and that you associate with God [in worship] that for which He has not sent down thereof authority, and that you say about God what you do not know."
