Juz 16
Then the twain journeyed until when they embarked in a boat, he scuttled it. Musa said: hast thou scuttled it that thou mayest drown the people thereof? Assuredly thou hast committed a thing grievous. (71) He replied: "Did I not tell thee that thou wilt never be able to have patience with me?" (72) Moses said: "Do not take me to task at my forgetfulness, and do not be hard on me." (73) So they set out again; until when they met a boy, the chosen bondman slew him Moosa said, “Did you slay an innocent soul not in retribution for another? You have indeed done an extremely evil thing.” (74) ۞ He said: Did I not tell thee that thou couldst not bear with me? (75) [Musa (Moses)] said: "If I ask you anything after this, keep me not in your company, you have received an excuse from me." (76) Then the twain journeyed until when they came unto the people of a city, they begged food from the people thereof, but they refused to entertain the twain. Then they found therein a wall, about to fall down, and he set it upright. Musa said: hadst thou willed, thou mightest have taken therefor a hire. (77) He said: This is the parting between thee and me! I will announce unto thee the interpretation of that thou couldst not bear with patience. (78) As for the ship, it belonged to poor people working on the river, and I wished to mar it, for there was a king behind them who is taking every ship by force. (79) As for the boy, his parents were believers, but we feared that he would harass them with defiance and disbelief. (80) "So we intended that their Lord should change him for them for one better in righteousness and near to mercy. (81) And as for the wall, it belonged to two orphan boys in the city, and there was beneath it a treasure belonging to them, and their father had been righteous, and thy Lord intended that they should come to their full strength and should bring forth their treasure as a mercy from their Lord; and I did it not upon my own command. Such is the interpretation of that wherewith thou couldst not bear. (82)
