So they departed; until, when they embarked upon the ship, he made a hole in it. He said, 'What, hast thou made a hole in it so as to drown its passengers? Thou hast indeed done a grievous thing.' (71) He replied: "Did I not tell you that you will not be able to patiently bear with me?" (72) He said: Blame me not for what I forgot, and do not constrain me to a difficult thing in my affair. (73) The two went on till they came to a boy, whom he killed. Moses exclaimed: "You have killed an innocent soul who had taken no life. You have done a most abominable thing!" (74) ۞ He said, “Did I not tell you that you will never be able to patiently stay with me?” (75) Musa said: if I ask thee regarding aught after this, company not with me; surely there hath reached to thee from my side an 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 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) 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) "The young boy had very faithful parents. We were afraid that out of love for him they would lose their faith in God and commit rebellion (80) and we desired that their Lord should grant them another in his place, a son more upright and more tender hearted. (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)
