Theory:

When the king had dug two beds, he stopped and repeated his questions. The hermit gave no answer, but stood up, stretching out his hand for the spade, and said, “Now you rest, and let me work.”
 
But the king did not give him the spade and continued to dig.
 
One hour passed, then another. The sun went down behind the trees, and at last, the king stuck the spade into the ground and said, “I came to you, wise man, for an answer to my questions. If you can give me no answer, tell me so, and I will return home.”
 
“Here comes someone running,” said the hermit.
Explanation:
  
The king was digging the ground while the hermit was resting. After he had dug two beds (small patches of ground, where plants are grown), he stopped and tried to get the answer from the hermit for his questions. Again the hermit heard but did not answer him. Instead, he stood up and put his hand out, asking for the spade; he told the king to rest now and that we could continue the work.
 
But the king did not agree. He continued his digging work.
 
Two hours passed, and it was time for sunset. The sent went down and disappeared behind the trees. The tired king stuck the spade into the ground and told the hermit he had come to him for answers. He said if he could not give the answers, he can inform him the same, and that he will return home.
  
Again, the hermit did not answer him. Instead, he says someone is running towards them.
