So they set out till they (came to the quay) and went on board a ship in which he made a hole, (and Moses said:) "You have made a hole in the boat to drown its passengers? You have done a strange thing!" (71) He (Khidr) said: "Did I not tell you, that you would not be able to have patience with me?" (72) Moses said, "Please, forgive my forgetfulness. Do not oblige me with what is difficult for me to endure." (73) So they twain journeyed on till, when they met a lad, he slew him. (Moses) said: What! Hast thou slain an innocent soul who hath slain no man? Verily thou hast done a horrid thing. (74) ۞ The man said, "Did I not tell you that you would not be able to have any patience with me?" (75) He said, 'If I question thee on anything after this, then keep me company no more; thou hast already experienced excuse sufficient on my part.' (76) The two went on till they came upon some villagers, and asked the people for food, but they refused to entertain them. There they found a wall that was crumbling, which he repaired. Moses remarked: "You could have demanded wages for it if you liked." (77) He answered, "This is where you and I must part company. But first I will tell you the meaning of the things you could not bear with patiently. (78) As for the ship, it belonged to certain poor men, who toiled upon the sea; and I desired to damage it, for behind them there was a king who was seizing every ship by brutal force. (79) And as for the boy, his parents were believers, and we apprehended that he might impose upon the twain exorbitance and infidelity. (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 boys in the city. Beneath it was (buried) a treasure which belonged to them. Their father had been a righteous person and your Lord willed that when they reach manhood to bring out their treasure as a mercy from your Lord. What I did was not done by my own command. That is the interpretation of what you could not bear with patience' (82)
