And so the two went on their way, till [they reached the seashore; and] when they disembarked from the boat [that had ferried them across,] the sage made a hole in it - [whereupon Moses] exclaimed: "Hast thou made a hole in it in order to drown the people who may be [travelling] in it? Indeed, thou hast done a grievous thing!" (71) He (Khidr) said: "Did I not tell you, that you would not be able to have patience with me?" (72) Said [Moses]: "Take-me not to task for my having forgotten [myself,] and be not hard on me on account of what I have done!" (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) ۞ He responded, "Did I not tell you that you will not be able to remain patient with me?" (75) He said: If I ask you about anything after this, keep me not in your company; indeed you shall have (then) found an excuse in my case. (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 said: "This brings me and you to a parting of ways. Now I shall explain to you the true meaning of things about which you could not remain patient. (78) "As for the ship, it belonged to Masakin (poor people) working in the sea. So I wished to make a defective damage in it, as there was a king after them who seized 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) So we intended that their Lord should substitute for them one better than him in purity and nearer to mercy. (81) As for the wall, it belonged to two orphan lads in the city, and under it was a treasure belonging to them. Their father was a righteous man; and thy Lord desired that they should come of age and then bring forth their treasure as a mercy from thy Lord. I did it not of my own bidding. This is the interpretation of that thou couldst not bear patiently.' (82)
