Quote:
{5:59} Say, "O People of the Scripture, do you resent us except [for the fact] that we have believed in God and what was revealed to us and what was revealed before and because most of you are defiantly disobedient?"

I suggest,
{5:59} Say, "O People of the Book, do you resent from us except that we have believed in God and what was sent down to us and what was sent down before and that most of you are deviant?"

Quote:
{5:60} Say, "Shall I inform you of [what is] worse than that as penalty from God? [It is that of] those whom God has cursed and with whom He became angry and made of them apes and pigs and slaves of Taghut. Those are worse in position and further astray from the sound way."

I suggest,
{5:60} Say, "Shall I tell you of [what is] more sinister than that as payback in the sight of God? [It is that of] him whom God has cursed, became angry with, and made from among them apes, pigs and slaves to fallacy." Those are more sinister in position and further astray from the level road.

Quote:
{5:61} And when they come to you, they say, "We believe." But they have entered with disbelief [in their hearts], and they have certainly left with it. And God is most knowing of what they were concealing.

I suggest,
{5:61} And when they came to you, they said, "We believed." But they did enter with disbelief [in their hearts], and they have certainly left with it. And God is All-Knowing of what they have been suppressing.
