{7:19} And "O Adam, dwell, you and your wife, in Paradise and eat from wherever you will but do not approach this tree, lest you be among the wrongdoers."

This verse made the point repeatedly that the address was to both Adam and Eve. So, I suggest,

{7:19} "And, O Adam, dwell you and your spouse in the Garden, then eat, both of you, from wherever you will, but do not, you two, approach this tree, lest you two be among the wrongdoers."

Quote:
{7:20} But Satan whispered to them to make apparent to them that which was concealed from them of their private parts. He said, "Your Lord did not forbid you this tree except that you become angels or become of the immortal."

I suggest,
{7:20} Thereupon whispered to them Satan to make apparent to them what was made unnoticed to them of their unseemly parts. He said, "Your Lord did not forbid you from this tree except that you become angels or become of the immortal."

Quote:
{7:21} And he swore [by God] to them, "Indeed, I am to you from among the sincere advisors."

I suggest,
{7:21} And he swore to them, "Verily, I am to you two of the sincere."

Quote:
{7:22} So he made them fall, through deception. And when they tasted of the tree, their private parts became apparent to them, and they began to fasten together over themselves from the leaves of Paradise. And their Lord called to them, "Did I not forbid you from that tree and tell you that Satan is to you a clear enemy?"

I suggest,
{7:22} So he dangled them (tempted them), with delusion. Then once they tasted the tree, their unseemly parts appeared to them, and they commenced to fasten together over themselves from the leaves of the Garden. And their Lord called them, "Did I not forbid you two from that tree of yours and say to you two that Satan is to you two a clear enemy?".
