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) He answered: "Did I not tell thee that thou canst have no patience with me?" (72) Moses said: 'Do not blame me for what I forgot, nor press me to do something which is too difficult' (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) ۞ (Khidr) said: "Did I not tell you that you can have no patience 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) So they went on until when they came to the people of a town, they asked them for food, but they refused to entertain them as guests. Then they found in it a wall which was on the point of falling, so he put it into a right state. (Musa) said: If you had pleased, you might certainly have taken a recompense for it. (77) "This is the parting of our "ways," he said. "But I will now explain the things you could not bear: (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) As for the youth, his parents were believers and we feared that he would trouble them by rebellion and denial of truth. (80) So we intended that their Lord should change for the twain one better than he in piety and closer in affection. (81) "The wall belonged to two young orphans in the town whose father had been a righteous man, and a treasure of theirs lay underneath it. So your Lord wanted them to come of age and then to dig up their treasure as a mercy from Him. I did not do [it] of my own accord. That is the explanation of the things about which you were not able to restrain yourself." (82)
