So they departed; until, when they embarked upon the ship, he made a hole in it. He said, 'What, hast thou made a hole in it so as to drown its passengers? Thou hast indeed done a grievous thing.' (71) He said: said I not that thou wouldst not be able to have with me patience? (72) [Musa (Moses)] said: "Call me not to account for what I forgot, and be not hard upon me for my affair (with you)." (73) and so they departed. Thereafter they met a boy and he killed him. He (Moses) exclaimed: 'What, have you killed a pure soul and it was not done (in retaliation) for a soul? you have done a terrible thing' (74) ۞ He said, “Did I not tell you that you will never be able to patiently stay with me?” (75) (Moses) said: "If ever I ask thee about anything after this, keep me not in thy company: then wouldst thou have received (full) excuse from my side." (76) So they twain journeyed on till, when they came unto the folk of a certain township, they asked its folk for food, but they refused to make them guests. And they found therein a wall upon the point of falling into ruin, and he repaired it. (Moses) said: If thou hadst wished, thou couldst have taken payment for it. (77) "This is the parting of our "ways," he said. "But I will now explain the things you could not bear: (78) “In respect of the boat it belonged to the poor people who worked on the river, so I wished to flaw it and behind them was a king who would capture every sound ship.” (79) As for the lad, his parents were believers; and we were afraid he would impose on them insolence and unbelief; (80) and we desired that their Lord should grant them another in his place, a son more upright and more tender hearted. (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 was a righteous man; so your Lord desired that they should attain their maturity and take out their treasure, a mercy from your Lord, and I did not do it of my own accord. This is the significance of that with which you could not have patience. (82)
