You can say

Quran Chapter 4, Aayahs 15-16

or

Quran Surah An-Nisa, Aayah 15-16

or

One of the above and then recite the two Aayahs.

Additions: OP asked about the following too:

Surah An-Nisa is the fourth Surah in Quran.

Aayah is the smallest unit in Quran. It can be a two or more letters, a word, a phrase, a sentence, or many sentences. There is not any term in grammar or linguistics which match to an aayah. This concept is unique to Quran.

  • No, I mean how to say it. Do you have to pronounce Arabic exactly? Is there an English equivalent?

  • OK! Thanks! That's what I meant. Now, what does "Surah An-Nisa" mean and what does "Aayah" mean?

  • Oh, one more thing. The term "Verse" is used for Bible. So many people use Verse to mention an Aayah. This is not exactly correct. Please see my previous comment.
