And so the two went on their way, till [they reached the seashore; and] when they disembarked from the boat [that had ferried them across,] the sage made a hole in it - [whereupon Moses] exclaimed: "Hast thou made a hole in it in order to drown the people who may be [travelling] in it? Indeed, thou hast done a grievous thing!" (71) He said: said I not that thou wouldst not be able to have with me patience? (72) [Moses] said, "Do not blame me for what I forgot and do not cover me in my matter with difficulty." (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 said: said I not unto thee that thou wouldst by no means be able to have with me patience? (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 both set out again; until they came to the people of a dwelling they asked its people for food they refused to invite them then in the village they both found a wall about to collapse, and the chosen bondman straightened it; said Moosa, “If you wished, you could have taken some wages for it!” (77) [Al-Khidh r] said, "This is parting between me and you. I will inform you of the interpretation of that about which you could not have patience. (78) As for the ship, it belonged to poor people working at sea. So I intended to cause defect in it as there was after them a king who seized every [good] 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) And we intended that their Lord should change him for them for one better in purity and nearer to mercy. (81) As for the wall, it belonged to two orphan boys in the city. Beneath it was (buried) a treasure which belonged to them. Their father had been a righteous person and your Lord willed that when they reach manhood to bring out their treasure as a mercy from your Lord. What I did was not done by my own command. That is the interpretation of what you could not bear with patience' (82)
