Quote:
{21:78} And [mention] David and Solomon, when they judged concerning the field --when the sheep of a people overran it [at night], and We were witness to their judgement.

I suggest,
{21:78} And [mention] David and Solomon, as they judged concerning the crop - as had ravaged in it the sheep of the folk, and We were to their judgment witnessing.

Quote:
{21:79} And We gave understanding of the case to Solomon, and to each [of them] We gave judgement and knowledge. And We subjected the mountains to exalt [Us], along with David and [also] the birds. And We were doing [that].

I suggest,
{21:79} Then We had Solomon understand it (the case) - and to each (Solomon and David) We gave judgment and knowledge. And We subjected, [to chorus] with David, the mountains to sanctify [Us], and [also] the birds. And We were doing [that].

Quote:
{21:80} And We taught him the fashioning of coats of armor to protect you from your [enemy in] battle. So will you then be grateful?

I suggest,
{21:80} And We taught him the craft of mail to fortify you against your duress. So are you thankful?
