I like Yusuf Ali's translation of تقلبهم As 'their strutting about". So, for 40:4, I suggest,
{40:4} No one disputes concerning the signs of God except those who disbelieve, so do not let beguile you their strutting about in the lands.

For 40:5, I suggest,
{40:5} The people of Noah belied before them and the factions after them, and every community purposed their messenger to seize him, and they argued with falsehood to invalidate thereby the truth. So I seized them. So, how was My penalty?

And for 40;6, I suggest this slight change,
{40:6} And thus has the word of your Lord come true upon those who disbelieved that they are companions of the Fire.
