AND LO! [In the course of his wanderings,] Moses said to his servant: "I shall not give up until I reach the junction of the two seas, even if I [have to] spend untold years [in my quest]!" 60 And when they reached the place where the two seas meet, they forgot about their fish, and it took its way into the sea, making a tunnel. (The dead fish came alive and went into the water.) 61 Moses asked his young companion when they crossed this point, "Bring us our food; the journey has made us tired." 62 He said: Didst thou see, when we took refuge on the rock, and I forgot the fish - and none but Satan caused me to forget to mention it - it took its way into the waters by a marvel. 63 Moses said, "That is exactly what we are seeking. They followed their own foot prints back (to the rock)." 64 Then they found one of Our slaves, unto whom We had bestowed mercy from Us, and whom We had taught knowledge from Us. 65 Moses said to him: "May l follow you that you may teach me something of the wisdom which you have been taught?" 66 He answered: "You will surely not be able to bear with me. 67 How could you be patient in matters beyond your knowledge?" 68 "You will find me patient if God wills," said Moses; "and I will not disobey you in any thing." 69 The other said: "If then thou wouldst follow me, ask me no questions about anything until I myself speak to thee concerning it." 70
