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 (Khidr) said: "Did I not tell you, that you would not be able to have patience with me?" (72) Moses said: "Do not take me to task at my forgetfulness, and do not be hard on me." (73) So they went on until, when they met a boy, he slew him. (Musa) said: Have you slain an innocent person otherwise than for manslaughter? Certainly you have done an evil thing. (74) ۞ He responded, "Did I not tell you that you will not be able to remain patient with me?" (75) He (Moses) said: 'If I question you again do not let me be your companion; you already have enough excuse' (76) So they departed; until, when they reached the people of a city, they asked the people for food, but they refused to receive them hospitably. There they found a wall about to tumble down, and so he set it up. He said, 'If thou hadst wished, thou couldst have taken a wage for that.' (77) He said, “This is the parting between you and me; I shall now tell you the interpretation of the matters you could not patiently bear.” (78) "As for the boat, it belonged to certain men in dire want: they plied on the water: I but wished to render it unserviceable, for there was after them a certain king who seized on every boat 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 substitute for them one better than him in purity and nearer to mercy. (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)
