So they both proceeded: until, when they were in the boat, he scuttled it. Said Moses: "Hast thou scuttled it in order to drown those in it? Truly a strange thing hast thou done!" (71) 'Did I not I tell you' he replied, 'that you would not bear patiently with me' (72) [Moses] said, "Do not blame me for what I forgot and do not cover me in my matter with difficulty." (73) So they set out, until when they met a boy, al-Khidh r killed him. [Moses] said, "Have you killed a pure soul for other than [having killed] a soul? You have certainly done a deplorable thing." (74) ۞ He said: "Did I not tell you you will not be able to bear with me?" (75) Said Moosa, “If I ask you anything after this, do not stay with me; indeed your condition from me is fulfilled.” (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) He said: This shall be separation between me and you; now I will inform you of the significance of that with which you could not have patience. (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) As for the boy, his parents were believers, but we feared that he would harass them with defiance and disbelief. (80) "So we desired that their Lord would give them in exchange (a son) better in purity (of conduct) and closer in affection. (81) "And as for the wall, it belonged to two orphan boys in the town; and there was under it a treasure belonging to them; and their father was a righteous man, and your Lord intended that they should attain their age of full strength and take out their treasure as a mercy from your Lord. And I did it not of my own accord. That is the interpretation of those (things) over which you could not hold patience." (82)
