Surah An Nisa was revealed at Madinah. Look at what the surah is about - Marriage, inheritance, issues related to salat during war, the hypocrites, etc; basically a code of laws. This surah was revealed to the new Islamic state in Madinah; not in Makkah.
 
Take a look at the verses you gave along with the verses preceding and following those verses.
 
4:137
Those who believe, then reject faith, then believe (again) and (again) reject faith, and go on increasing in unbelief,- Allah will not forgive them nor guide them nor guide them on the way.

4:138
To the Hypocrites give the glad tidings that there is for them (but) a grievous penalty;-

4:139
Yea, to those who take for friends unbelievers rather than believers: is it honour they seek among them? Nay,- all honour is with Allah.

4:140
Already has He sent you Word in the Book, that when ye hear the signs of Allah held in defiance and ridicule, ye are not to sit with them unless they turn to a different theme: if ye did, ye would be like them. For Allah will collect the hypocrites and those who defy faith - all in Hell:-

4:141
(These are) the ones who wait and watch about you: if ye do gain a victory from Allah, they say: "Were we not with you?"- but if the unbelievers gain a success, they say (to them): "Did we not gain an advantage over you, and did we not guard you from the believers?" but Allah will judge betwixt you on the Day of Judgment. And never will Allah grant to the unbelievers a way (to triumphs) over the believers.

4:142
The Hypocrites - they think they are over-reaching Allah, but He will over-reach them: When they stand up to prayer, they stand without earnestness, to be seen of men, but little do they hold Allah in remembrance;

4:143
(They are) distracted in mind even in the midst of it,- being (sincerely) for neither one group nor for another whom Allah leaves straying,- never wilt thou find for him the way.

4:144
O ye who believe! Take not for friends unbelievers rather than believers: Do ye wish to offer Allah an open proof against yourselves?

4:145
The Hypocrites will be in the lowest depths of the Fire: no helper wilt thou find for them;-

These verses were revealed to the Muslims at Madinah about the hypocrites who chose unbelievers as their allies/friends.

i apologise for misquoting the verse...may Allah (s.w.t) forgive my mistake...
br. friendship..alhamd atleast we are square on this issue....actually i wanted to see what is generally accepted....

there are many other evidences for those who are not satisfied with br.friendship's words...

The Holy Prophet says in a hadith (joining his two fingers): "I and the supporter of the orphan are together in Paradise like these two fingers."

Ibn Abi'l-Hadid also has reported this hadith in his Sharh-e-Nahju'l-Balagha, vol.IV, p.312, where he says that it is obvious that the Holy Prophets statement does not mean all supporters of orphans, since the supporters of orphans could be sinners. So the Holy Prophet meant by it Abu Talib and his distinguished grandfather, Abdu'l-Muttalib, who looked after the Holy Prophet. The Holy Prophet was known in Mecca as the yatim (orphan) of Abu Talib because after the passing away of Abdu'l-Muttalib, the Prophet, from the age of eight, had been in the care of Abu Talib.
