Quote:
{42:40} And the retribution for an evil act is an evil one like it, but whoever pardons and makes reconciliation - his reward is [due] from God. Indeed, He does not like wrongdoers.

I suggest,
{42:40} And the retribution for a misdeed is unpleasant like it, but whoever pardons and reconciles - his reward is upon God. Verily, He does not like wrongdoers.

Quote:
{42:41} And whoever avenges himself after having been wronged - those have not upon them any cause [for blame].

I suggest,
{42:41} And whoever vindicates himself after being wronged - those have not upon them any venue [for blame].

Quote:
{42:42} The cause is only against the ones who wrong the people and tyrannize upon the earth without right. Those will have a painful punishment.

I suggest,
{42:42} Indeed, The venue [for blame] is only upon those who wrong the people and infringe in the land without right. Those - for them is a painful torment.

Quote:
{42:43} And whoever is patient and forgives - indeed, that is of the matters [requiring] determination.

I suggest,
{42:43} And whoever endures and forgives - verily, that surely is of matters resolute.
