˹One day˺ he entered the city unnoticed by its people.1 There he found two men fighting: one of his own people, and the other of his enemies. The man from his people called to him for help against his foe. So Moses punched him, causing his death. Moses cried, “This is from Satan’s handiwork. He is certainly a sworn, misleading enemy.”

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

And he entered the city at a time of inattention by its people1 and found therein two men fighting: one from his faction and one from among his enemy. And the one from his faction called for help to him against the one from his enemy, so Moses struck him and [unintentionally] killed him. [Moses] said, "This is from the work of Satan. Indeed, he is a manifest, misleading enemy."

He pleaded, “My Lord! I have definitely wronged my soul, so forgive me.” So He forgave him, ˹for˺ He is indeed the All-Forgiving, Most Merciful.

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

He said, "My Lord, indeed I have wronged myself, so forgive me," and He forgave him. Indeed, He is the Forgiving, the Merciful.

Moses pledged, “My Lord! For all Your favours upon me, I will never side with the wicked.”

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

He said, "My Lord, for the favor You bestowed upon me, I will never be an assistant to the criminals."

— Saheeh International

And so Moses became fearful, watching out in the city, when suddenly the one who sought his help the day before cried out to him again for help. Moses rebuked him, “Indeed, you are clearly a trouble-maker.”

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

And he became inside the city fearful and anticipating [exposure], when suddenly the one who sought his help the previous day cried out to him [once again]. Moses said to him, "Indeed, you are an evident, [persistent] deviator."

— Saheeh International

Then when Moses was about to lay his hands on their foe,1 the enemy said, “O Moses! Do you intend to kill me as you killed a man yesterday? You only want to be a tyrant in the land. You do not intend to make peace!”

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

And when he wanted to strike the one who was an enemy to both of them, he1 said, "O Moses, do you intend to kill me as you killed someone yesterday? You only want to be a tyrant in the land and do not want to be of the amenders."

And there came a man, rushing from the farthest end of the city. He said, “O Moses! The chiefs are actually conspiring against you to put you to death, so leave ˹the city˺. I really advise you ˹to do so˺.”

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

And a man came from the farthest end of the city, running. He said, "O Moses, indeed the eminent ones are conferring over you [intending] to kill you, so leave [the city]; indeed, I am to you of the sincere advisors."

— Saheeh International

So Moses left the city in a state of fear and caution, praying, “My Lord! Deliver me from the wrongdoing people.”

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

So he left it, fearful and anticipating [apprehension]. He said, "My Lord, save me from the wrongdoing people."

— Saheeh International

And as he made his way towards Midian, he said, “I trust my Lord will guide me to the right way.”

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

And when he directed himself toward Madyan, he said, "Perhaps my Lord will guide me to the sound way."

— Saheeh International

When he arrived at the well of Midian, he found a group of people watering ˹their herds˺. Apart from them, he noticed two women holding back ˹their herd˺. He asked ˹them˺, “What is the problem?” They replied, “We cannot water ˹our animals˺ until the ˹other˺ shepherds are done, for our father is a very old man.”

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

And when he came to the water [i.e., well] of Madyan, he found there a crowd of people watering [their flocks], and he found aside from them two women holding back [their flocks]. He said, "What is your circumstance?" They said, "We do not water until the shepherds dispatch [their flocks]; and our father is an old man."
