Quote:
{42:21} Or have they other deities who have ordained for them a religion to which God has not consented? But if not for the decisive word, it would have been concluded between them. And indeed, the wrongdoers will have a painful punishment.

I suggest,
{42:21} Or do they have partners who ordained for them of the religion what God has not permitted? But if not for the decisive word, [judgment] would have been decreed between them. And verily, the wrongdoers will have a painful torment.

Quote:
{42:22} You will see the wrongdoers fearful of what they have earned, and it will [certainly] befall them. And those who have believed and done righteous deeds will be in lush regions of the gardens [in Paradise] having whatever they will in the presence of their Lord. That is what is the great bounty.

I suggest,
{42:22} You [will] see the wrongdoers apprehensive about what they have earned, and it is befalling them. And those who have believed and done the righteous [deeds] will be in the orchards of the gardens having whatever they will at their Lord. It is that which is the great bounty.
