So they departed. When they boarded a ship, he bored a hole in it. 'What, have you made a hole in it' he said, 'is it to drown its passengers? You have done a dreadful thing' (71) He said: Did I not say that you will not be able to have patience with me? (72) He said, "Do not take me to task for what I have forgotten, and do not be hard on me on account of what I have done!" (73) So they travelled on. Then they met a young boy and the man killed him. Moses said, "Have you slain an innocent person without his having slain anyone? Indeed, you have done a terrible thing!" (74) ۞ He replied: "Did I not tell thee that thou wilt never be able to have patience 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) He said: This shall be separation between me and you; now I will inform you of the significance of that with which you could not have patience. (78) As for the ship, it belonged to certain poor men, who toiled upon the sea; and I desired to damage it, for behind them there was a king who was seizing every ship by brutal force. (79) And as for the boy, his parents were believers, and we apprehended that he might impose upon the twain exorbitance and infidelity. (80) so we desired that their Lord should give to them in exchange one better than he in purity, and nearer in tenderness. (81) And as for the wall, it belonged to two orphan boys in the town and underneath it was a treasure belonging to them and their father had been righteous. So thy Lord intended that the twain should attain their maturity and bring forth for themselves their treasure as a mercy from thy Lord. And I did it not of mine own command; that is the interpretation of that wherewith thou wast not able to have patience. (82)
