So they set out, until when they had embarked on the ship, al-Khidh r tore it open. [Moses] said, "Have you torn it open to drown its people? You have certainly done a grave thing." (71) He (Khidr) said: "Did I not tell you, that you would not be able to have patience with me?" (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) Then they proceeded: until, when they met a young man, he slew him. Moses said: "Hast thou slain an innocent person who had slain none? Truly a foul (unheard of) thing hast thou done!" (74) ۞ He said: Did I not tell thee that thou couldst not bear with me? (75) Said Moosa, “If I ask you anything after this, do not stay with me; indeed your condition from me is fulfilled.” (76) So they went on until when they came to the people of a town, they asked them for food, but they refused to entertain them as guests. Then they found in it a wall which was on the point of falling, so he put it into a right state. (Musa) said: If you had pleased, you might certainly have taken a recompense for it. (77) Said he, 'This is the parting between me and thee. Now I will tell thee the interpretation of that thou couldst not bear patiently. (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) "And as for that young man, his parents were [true] believers - whereas we had every reason to fear that he would bring bitter grief upon them by [his] overweening wickedness and denial of all truth: (80) so We decided that their Lord should replace him by a better and more virtuous son. (81) "And as for the wall, it belonged to two orphan boys in the town; and there was under it a treasure belonging to them; and their father was a righteous man, and your Lord intended that they should attain their age of full strength and take out their treasure as a mercy from your Lord. And I did it not of my own accord. That is the interpretation of those (things) over which you could not hold patience." (82)
