Verse 28:11

وَقَالَتۡ لِاُخۡتِهٖ قُصِّيۡهِ​ فَبَصُرَتۡ بِهٖ عَنۡ جُنُبٍ وَّهُمۡ لَا يَشۡعُرُوۡنَۙ‏ 

And so she said to his sister, 'Follow him!' And the girl (the 12 year old Miriam) watched him from afar, while they were not aware.

Verse 28:12

وَحَرَّمۡنَا عَلَيۡهِ الۡمَرَاضِعَ مِنۡ قَبۡلُ فَقَالَتۡ هَلۡ اَدُلُّـكُمۡ عَلٰٓى اَهۡلِ بَيۡتٍ يَّكۡفُلُوۡنَهٗ لَـكُمۡ وَهُمۡ لَهٗ نٰصِحُوۡنَ‏

From the very beginning We caused him to refuse suckling from foster mothers. She (Miriam, the sister of baby Moses) said, 'Shall I tell you of a family that can raise him for you and take good care of him?'

Verse 28:13

فَرَدَدۡنٰهُ اِلٰٓى اُمِّهٖ كَىۡ تَقَرَّ عَيۡنُهَا وَلَا تَحۡزَنَ وَلِتَعۡلَمَ اَنَّ وَعۡدَ اللّٰهِ حَقٌّ وَّلٰـكِنَّ اَكۡثَرَهُمۡ لَا يَعۡلَمُوۡنَ‏

And thus We restored him to his mother so that her eye might be gladdened and that she might grieve no longer, and that she might know that God's promise always comes true. But most of them know not.

Verse 28:14

وَلَمَّا بَلَغَ اَشُدَّهٗ وَاسۡتَوٰٓى اٰتَيۡنٰهُ حُكۡمًا وَّعِلۡمًا​ ؕ وَكَذٰلِكَ نَجۡزِى الۡمُحۡسِنِيۡنَ‏

When he reached his prime and full maturity, We bestowed upon him wisdom and knowledge. This is how We reward the doers of good to others. [Wisdom and knowledge are granted to all those who benefit people since youth. 12:22]

Verse 28:15

وَدَخَلَ الۡمَدِيۡنَةَ عَلٰى حِيۡنِ غَفۡلَةٍ مِّنۡ اَهۡلِهَا فَوَجَدَ فِيۡهَا رَجُلَيۡنِ يَقۡتَتِلٰنِ  هٰذَا مِنۡ شِيۡعَتِهٖ وَهٰذَا مِنۡ عَدُوِّهٖ​ۚ فَاسۡتَغَاثَهُ الَّذِىۡ مِنۡ شِيۡعَتِهٖ عَلَى الَّذِىۡ مِنۡ عَدُوِّهٖۙ فَوَكَزَهٗ مُوۡسٰى فَقَضٰى عَلَيۡهِ​  قَالَ هٰذَا مِنۡ عَمَلِ الشَّيۡطٰنِ​ ؕ اِنَّهٗ عَدُوٌّ مُّضِلٌّ مُّبِيۡنٌ‏ 

And one day the young Moses entered the city at a time when most of its people were resting unaware of what was going on in the streets. And there he encountered two men fighting with each other. One was of his people (an Israeli) the other of his (Egyptian) adversaries. His tribesman cried out to him for help against the one who was of the enemies - Whereupon Moses struck him with his fist and thus, (accidentally) brought about his end. But then he said to himself, 'This is of Satan's doing! Surely, he is an open enemy, a misleader.' [Moses, not yet commissioned to Prophethood, was denouncing his emotions]

Verse 28:16

قَالَ رَبِّ اِنِّىۡ ظَلَمۡتُ نَفۡسِىۡ فَاغۡفِرۡ لِىۡ فَغَفَرَ لَهٗ​ؕ اِنَّهٗ هُوَ الۡغَفُوۡرُ الرَّحِيۡمُ‏

And he prayed, 'My Lord! Surely, I have hurt my 'self'. Forgive me then.' And He forgave him, for, He is the Forgiving, the Merciful. [Moses had intended only to help the weak and not to kill the other man]

Verse 28:17

قَالَ رَبِّ بِمَاۤ اَنۡعَمۡتَ عَلَىَّ فَلَنۡ اَكُوۡنَ ظَهِيۡرًا لِّلۡمُجۡرِمِيۡنَ‏ 

He said, 'My Lord! Since You have bestowed Your grace on me, never again will I support the guilty.'

Verse 28:18

فَاَصۡبَحَ فِى الۡمَدِيۡنَةِ خَآٮِٕفًا يَّتَرَقَّبُ فَاِذَا الَّذِى اسۡتَـنۡصَرَهٗ بِالۡاَمۡسِ يَسۡتَصۡرِخُهٗ​ ؕ قَالَ لَهٗ مُوۡسٰٓى اِنَّكَ لَـغَوِىٌّ مُّبِيۡنٌ‏ 

In the morning he was in the city, fearing, watchful when the man who had asked him the day before cried out to him for help. Moses said to him, 'You are one obvious troublemaker.'

Verse 28:19

فَلَمَّاۤ اَنۡ اَرَادَ اَنۡ يَّبۡطِشَ بِالَّذِىۡ هُوَ عَدُوٌّ لَّهُمَا ۙ قَالَ يٰمُوۡسٰٓى اَ تُرِيۡدُ اَنۡ تَقۡتُلَنِىۡ كَمَا قَتَلۡتَ نَفۡسًۢا بِالۡاَمۡسِ ​ۖ  اِنۡ تُرِيۡدُ اِلَّاۤ اَنۡ تَكُوۡنَ جَبَّارًا فِى الۡاَرۡضِ وَمَا تُرِيۡدُ اَنۡ تَكُوۡنَ مِنَ الۡمُصۡلِحِيۡنَ‏

But then, as soon as he was about to lay his hands on their enemy, the man said, 'O Moses! Would you kill me as you killed a person yesterday? Your aim is to become a tyrant in the land, for you do not care to be of those who set things right.'

Verse 28:20

وَجَآءَ رَجُلٌ مِّنۡ اَقۡصَا الۡمَدِيۡنَةِ يَسۡعٰى قَالَ يٰمُوۡسٰٓى اِنَّ الۡمَلَاَ يَاۡتَمِرُوۡنَ بِكَ لِيَـقۡتُلُوۡكَ فَاخۡرُجۡ اِنِّىۡ لَـكَ مِنَ النّٰصِحِيۡنَ‏ 

And then and there a man came running from the other side of the city, and said, 'O Moses! The chiefs are considering your case with a view to kill you. You better leave immediately. Surely, I wish you well.'
