"And as for the wall, it belonged to two orphan boys in the town; and there was under it a treasure belonging to them; and their father was a righteous man, and your Lord intended that they should attain their age of full strength and take out their treasure as a mercy from your Lord. And I did it not of my own accord. That is the interpretation of those (things) over which you could not hold patience."
The wall belonged to two young orphans in the town and there was buried treasure beneath it belonging to them. Their father had been a righteous man, so your Lord intended them to reach maturity and then dig up their treasure as a mercy from your Lord. I did not do [these things] of my own accord: these are the explanations for those things you could not bear with patience.’
Et quant au mur, il appartenait à deux garçons orphelins de la ville, et il y avait dessous un trésor à eux; et leur père était un homme vertueux. Ton Seigneur a donc voulu que tous deux atteignent leur maturité et qu'ils extraient, [eux-mêmes] leur trésor, par une miséricorde de ton Seigneur. Je ne l'ai d'ailleurs pas fait de mon propre chef. Voilà l'interprétation de ce que tu n'as pas pu endurer avec patience».
"As for the wall, it belonged to two youths, orphans, in the Town; there was, beneath it, a buried treasure, to which they were entitled: their father had been a righteous man: So thy Lord desired that they should attain their age of full strength and get out their treasure - a mercy (and favour) from thy Lord. I did it not of my own accord. Such is the interpretation of (those things) over which thou wast unable to hold patience."
And as for the wall, it belonged to two orphan boys in the city, and there was beneath it a treasure for them, and their father had been righteous. So your Lord intended that they reach maturity and extract their treasure, as a mercy from your Lord. And I did it not of my own accord. That is the interpretation of that about which you could not have patience."
As for the wall, it belonged to two orphan boys in the city, and
under it there was a treasure that belonged to them. Their father was a righteous
man and your Lord intended that they should come of age and then bring forth
their treasure as a mercy from your Lord; I did not do this of my own bidding.
This is the true meaning of things with which you could not keep your patience."0
