Quote:
{7:10} And We have certainly established you upon the earth and made for you therein ways of livelihood. Little are you grateful.

I suggest,
{7:10} And We have certainly enabled you in the earth and set up for you in it livelihoods. Little [it is] that you thank.

Quote:
{7:11} And We have certainly created you, [O Mankind], and given you [human] form. Then We said to the angels, "Prostrate to Adam"; so they prostrated, except for Iblees. He was not of those who prostrated.

I suggest,
{7:11} And We created you and then formed you and then We said to the angels, "Prostrate to Adam." So, they prostrated, but not Iblees - he was not one of the prostrating.

Quote:
{7:12} [God] said, "What prevented you from prostrating when I commanded you?" [Satan] said, "I am better than him. You created me from fire and created him from clay."

I suggest,
{7:12} [God] said, "What prevented you from prostrating as I commanded you?" [Satan] said, "I am better than him. You created me from fire and created him from clay."
