And when he attained his maturity and became full grown, We gave him wisdom and knowledge. This is how We reward the Al-Muhsinin (good-doers).
And he (Moses, before wisdom was given to him) went into the city at a time of inattention by its people (without any one perceived him). He found therein two men fighting, one being of his party and the other of his enemies. Then he who was of his party asked him for help against him who was of his enemies. So Moses struck him with his fist (killed him). So it (death) was fulfilled. Moses said: “This is of the devil s doing. Surely he is an enemy, leaving openly in Misguidance”.
He said: “My Lord! Surely I have wronged my soul, so forgive me”. Then He forgave him. Surely He is the Oft-Forgiving, the Most Merciful (the One that manifests with His Mercy attribute).
He said: “My Lord! Because of what You have bestowed on me as blessings, I shall never be a backer of the guilty (shall not help them)”.
So he waited for the morning in the city (fearing) watchful. But he who had appealed to him the day before cried out to him for help; Moses said to him: “Verily, you are a plain rampageous”!
So when he desired to seize him who was an enemy to them both, he said: “O Moses! Do you intend to kill me like the person you killed yesterday? If you do (want to kill), then you will be nothing but a tyrant in the land and you do not desire to be of the reconcilers”.
And a man came running from the remotest part of the city. He said: “O Moses! Surely the elites (of the city) are consulting together to kill you; therefore escape (from the city). Surely I am of the good advisers to you”.
So he escaped from there, fearing, vigilant (of his surroundings). He said: “My Lord! Deliver me from the wrongdoing people”.
