Quote:
{18:65} And they found a servant from among Our servants to whom we had given mercy from us and had taught him from Us a [certain] knowledge.

I suggest,
{18:65} Then they found a worshiper, among Our worshipers, whom We gave mercy from Us and taught him from Our Own a [privileged] knowledge.

Quote:
{18:66} Moses said to him, "May I follow you on [the condition] that you teach me from what you have been taught of sound judgement?"

I suggest,
{18:66} Moses said to him, "May I follow you on [the condition] that you teach me from what you have been taught a good sense?"

Quote:
{18:67} He said, "Indeed, with me you will never be able to have patience.
{18:68} And how can you have patience for what you do not encompass in knowledge?"

I suggest,
{18:67} He said, "Verily, you will not be able, with me, to have patience."
{18:68} "And how [can] you be patient with that about which you have not gathered [enough] information?"

Quote:
{18:70} He said, "Then if you follow me, do not ask me about anything until I make to you about it mention."

I suggest,
{18:70} He said, "Then if you follow me, do not ask about anything until I initiate for you of it a mention."
