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) He said, "Did I not tell you that you would not be able to remain patient with me?" (72) Musa said: take me not to task for what I forget, and impose not in my affair hardship. (73) Then the twain journeyed until when they met a boy, and he killed him. Musa said: hast thou slain a person innocent not in return for a person? Assuredly thou hast committed a thing formidable. (74) ۞ [Al-Khidh r] said, "Did I not tell you that with me you would never be able to have patience?" (75) Said [Moses]: "If, after this, I should ever question thee, keep me not in thy company: [for by] now thou hast heard enough excuses from me." (76) Then the two went forth until when they came to a town, they asked its people for food, but they refused to play host to them. They found in that town a wall that was on the verge of tumbling down, and he buttressed it, whereupon Moses said: "If you had wished, you could have received payment for it." (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) “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) And as for the boy, his parents were believers, and we feared that he would overburden them by transgression and disbelief. (80) so we desired that their Lord should give to them in exchange one better than he in purity, and nearer in tenderness. (81) As for that wall, it belonged to two orphan boys of the city, and their treasure was buried under it. Their father was an upright man. So your Lord willed that on reaching the age of maturity they should dig out their treasure as a favour from their Lord. So, I did not do that of my own accord. This is the explanation of things you could not bear with patience." (82)
