One of the attributes of Allah is that he is اَلرَّزَّاقُ = The Provider.

The root verb = رَزَقَ = he bestowed, endowed, blessed

We often hear the term 'Well that is my "رِزْقٌ", what can I do about it, except pray?' i.e. this is my providence - lot, boon, blessing, endowment, etc. (Al-Mawrid)

Here I would translate it: 'So sustain us! For you are the best of the providers.'
Notice I didn't put 'and', I feel that the وَ in this verse are connectives which do not necessaril sound right in the context of the translation, to have been translated as 'and.' I feel that the meaning is 'So...for...' But I could be completely wrong, as it is only a hunch after all!

Would you agree, please correct me if I'm wrong in my thinking...

Aaww الحمد لله, but I know very little Nuj, I just hope my understanding is somewhat correct إن شاء الله

I think the term for 'I agree' is أَتَّفِقُ please note, the vowellisation on the فَ may be wrong as I do not know the 1st person singular form of the root = اَتَّفَقَ = he agreed, concurred with, approved, authorised, ratified, etc.
