So they set out, but, when they got into a boat, the man made a hole in it. Moses exclaimed, "Have you made a hole in the boat to drown the people in it? You have indeed done a dreadful thing!" (71) 'Did I not I tell you' he replied, 'that you would not bear patiently with me' (72) Moses said, "Please, forgive my forgetfulness. Do not oblige me with what is difficult for me to endure." (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) ۞ He said: Did I not tell thee that thou couldst not bear with me? (75) Moses replied, "If I ever ask you about anything after this, do not let me accompany you. I will have given you sufficient excuse." (76) So they departed and thereafter they came to the inhabitants of a village. They asked its inhabitants for some food, but they declined to host them. There, they found a wall about to fall down whereupon his companion restored it. He (Moses) said: 'Had you wished, you could have taken payment for that' (77) He said, “This is the parting between you and me; I shall now tell you the interpretation of the matters you could not patiently bear.” (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 feared lest he should oppress them by rebellion and disbelief. (80) We wanted their Lord to replace him with someone purer than him and more compassionate. (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)
