Then the two went forth until, when they embarked on the boat, he made a hole in it, whereupon Moses exclaimed: "Have you made a hole in it so as to drown the people in the boat? You have certainly done an awful thing." (71) 'Did I not I tell you' he replied, 'that you would not bear patiently with me' (72) Said [Moses]: "Take-me not to task for my having forgotten [myself,] and be not hard on me on account of what I have done!" (73) And so the two went on, till, when they met a young man, [the sage] slew him - [whereupon Moses] exclaimed: "Hast thou slain an innocent human being without [his having taken] another man's life? Indeed, thou hast done a terrible thing!" (74) ۞ (Khidr) said: "Did I not tell you that you can have no patience with me?" (75) (Moses) said: If I ask thee after this concerning aught, keep not company with me. Thou hast received an excuse from me. (76) They continued on their journey again until they reached a town. They asked the people there for food, but no one accepted them as their guests. They found there a wall of a house which was on the verge of tumbling to the ground. The companion of Moses repaired that wall. Moses said, "You should have received some money for your labor." (77) He replied, "This is where we should depart from one another. I shall give an explanation to you for all that I have done for which you could not remain patient. (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) "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 wished that their Lord may bestow them a child better, purer and nearer to mercy.” (81) As for the wall, it belonged to two orphan lads in the city, and under it was a treasure belonging to them. Their father was a righteous man; and thy Lord desired that they should come of age and then bring forth their treasure as a mercy from thy Lord. I did it not of my own bidding. This is the interpretation of that thou couldst not bear patiently.' (82)
