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 replied: "Did I not tell thee that thou wilt never be able to have patience with me?" (72) (Moses) said: "Do not hold me for having forgotten, and do not reprove me and make my task difficult." (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: "Did I not tell you that you will not be able to patiently bear with me?" (75) Moses said: "Keep me no more in your company if I question you concerning anything after this. You will then be fully justified." (76) Then they both proceeded, till, when they came to the people of a town, they asked them for food, but they refused to entertain them. Then they found therein a wall about to collapse and he (Khidr) set it up straight. [Musa (Moses)] said: If you had wished, surely, you could have taken wages 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 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 in respect of the boy his parents were Muslims and we feared that he may incite them to rebellion and disbelief.” (80) We hoped their Lord would give them a substitute better than him in virtue and goodness. (81) And as for the wall, it belonged to two orphan boys in the city, and there was beneath it a treasure belonging to them, and their father had been righteous, and thy Lord intended that they should come to their full strength and should bring forth their treasure as a mercy from their Lord; and I did it not upon my own command. Such is the interpretation of that wherewith thou couldst not bear. (82)
