1 ʻOku fakatauveleʻi ʻa Tevita ʻe Sētane ke ne lau hono tokolahi ʻo ʻene kakai. 9 Ko e fakahā mo e hoko ai kiate ia ʻae tautea meia Sihova. 18 Ko e meʻa naʻe toki ngata ai ʻae mahaki fakaʻauha. 28 Ko e fai feilaulau ʻe Tevita ʻi he potu hahaʻanga uite.
Pea naʻe tuʻu hake ʻa Sētane ke fakakoviʻi ʻa ʻIsileli, pea naʻa ne fakalotoʻi ʻa Tevita ke ne lau hono tokolahi ʻo ʻIsileli. Pea naʻe pehē ʻe Tevita kia Soape, pea ki he ngaahi ʻeiki pule ki he kakai, Mou ʻalu ʻo lau hake ʻa ʻIsileli ʻo fai mei Peasipa ʻo aʻu atu ki Tani, pea ʻomi kiate au ʻa hono lau, koeʻuhi ke u ʻilo ai. Pea naʻe tali ange ʻe Soape, Ke ngaohi ʻe Sihova ʻa hono kakai ke nau liunga teau hake ʻakinautolu ʻi honau tokolahi ko eni: ka ko eni, “ʻe hoku ʻeiki ko e tuʻi ʻikai ko e kau tamaioʻeiki ʻakinautolu kotoa pē, ʻa hoku ʻeiki?” Pea ka kuo pehē, “Ko e hā ʻa hono ʻuhinga ʻoe fie fai ʻae meʻa ni ʻe hoku ʻeiki? Ko e hā ʻoku ne fie hoko ai ko e fakahala ki ʻIsileli?” Ka neongo ia naʻe mālohi hake kia Soape ʻae folofola ʻae tuʻi. Ko ia naʻe ʻalu ai ʻa Soape, mo ne ʻosiki ʻae potu kotoa pē ʻi ʻIsileli, mo ne haʻu ki Selūsalema. Pea naʻe ʻange ʻe Soape ʻae lau ʻa hono toko fiha ʻoe kakai kia Tevita. Pea ko e kātoa ʻo ʻIsileli ko e kau tangata naʻe toʻo heletā, ko e tokotaha miliona mo e tokotaha kilu: pea ko e kakai ʻi Siuta naʻe toʻo heletā naʻe toko fā kilu mo e toko fitu mano. Ka naʻe ʻikai ke lau ai ʻakinautolu ʻo Livai pe ko Penisimani: he naʻe kovi lahi ʻaupito kia Soape ʻae lea ʻae tuʻi. Pea naʻe houhau ʻae ʻOtua koeʻuhi ko e meʻa ni; pea ko ia naʻa ne teʻia ai ʻa ʻIsileli. Pea naʻe pehē ai ʻe Tevita ki he ʻOtua, “Kuo u fai angahala ʻo lahi, koeʻuhi ko ʻeku fai ʻae meʻa ni: ka ko eni, ʻoku ou kole kiate koe, ke ke hiki atu ʻae angahala ʻa hoʻo tamaioʻeiki; he kuo u fai vale ʻaupito.”
¶ Pea naʻe folofola ʻa Sihova kia Kata ko e tangata kikite ʻo Tevita, ʻo pehē, 10 “Ke ke ʻalu ʻo tala kia Tevita, ʻo pehē, ʻOku pehē ʻe Sihova, ʻOku ou tuku atu ʻae meʻa ko eni ʻe tolu, pea ke fili ʻe koe ha taha ʻi ai, koeʻuhi ke u fai ia kiate koe. 11 Ko ia naʻe haʻu ai ʻa Kata kia Tevita, mo ne pehē kiate ia, ʻOku pehē ʻe Sihova, Ke ke fili ʻe koe: 12 ‌ʻAe honge ʻi he taʻu ʻe tolu; pe ko e tautea koe ʻi he ʻao ʻo ho ngaahi fili ʻi ha māhina ʻe tolu, lolotonga ʻae hoko kiate koe ʻae heletā ʻo ho ngaahi fili; pe ko e ʻaho ʻe tolu ʻoe heletā ʻo Sihova, ʻio, ʻae mahaki fakaʻauha ʻi he fonua, mo e fai ʻae fakaʻauha ʻe he ʻāngelo ʻa Sihova ʻi he ngaahi potu fonua kotoa pē ʻo ʻIsileli. Ko ia foki ke ke fakakaukau ʻe koe pe ko e hā ʻae lea te u toe ʻave kiate ia naʻa ne fekauʻi au.” 13 Pea naʻe pehē ʻe Tevita kia Kata, “ʻOku ou ʻefihia ʻaupito au tuku pe ke u hinga ki he nima ʻo Sihova he ʻoku lahi ʻaupito ʻa ʻene ngaahi ʻaloʻofa kaeʻoua naʻa tuku ke u tō ki he nima ʻoe tangata.” 14 Ko ia naʻe tuku ai ʻe Sihova ʻae mahaki fakaʻauha ki ʻIsileli: pea naʻe mate ʻoe kakai ʻIsileli ʻae kau tangata ʻe toko fitu mano. 15 Pea naʻe fekau atu ha ʻāngelo ʻe he ʻOtua ki Selūsalema, ke ne fakaʻauha ia; pea lolotonga ʻa ʻene fai ʻae fakaʻauha, naʻe vakai ʻe Sihova, pea naʻa ne liliu mei he kovi, mo ne pehē ki he ʻāngelo naʻe fai ʻae fakaʻauha, “Maʻu ʻā, kuo lahi, pea taʻofi eni ho nima.” Pea naʻe tuʻu ʻae ʻāngelo ʻa Sihova ʻi he veʻe matapā ʻoe hahaʻanga uite ʻo Olinani ko e tangata Sepusi. 16 Pea naʻe hanga hake ʻe Tevita ʻa hono mata, pea naʻa ne mamata ki he ʻāngelo ʻa Sihova ʻoku ne tuʻu ʻi he vahaʻa ʻo māmani pea mo e langi, kuo toʻo ʻi hono nima ʻae heletā naʻe tuʻu tonu atu ki Selūsalema. Pea naʻe tō hifo ai ki honau mata ʻa Tevita mo e kau mātuʻa, kuo nau kofuʻaki ʻae tauangaʻa. 17 Pea naʻe pehē ʻe Tevita ki he ʻOtua, “ʻIkai ko au ia naʻe fekau ke lau hake ʻae kakai? ʻIo, ko au pe ia kuo u angahala mo fai ʻae kovi moʻoni; ka ko e fanga sipi ko ʻena, ko e hā kuo fai ʻekinautolu? ʻE Sihova ko e ʻOtua, ʻoku ou kole kiate koe, ke ke tuku ho nima ke hoko kiate au, pea ki he fale ʻo ʻeku tamai; kaeʻoua naʻa ʻi hoʻo kakai ia, ke nau mamahi ai.”
18 ¶ Pea naʻe toki fekau ʻe he ʻāngelo ʻa Sihova kia Kata ke ne lea kia Tevita ʻo pehē, ke ʻalu hake ʻa Tevita mo ne fokotuʻu ha feilaulauʻanga kia Sihova, ʻi he potu hahaʻanga uite ʻo Olinani ko e tangata Sepusi. 19 Pea naʻe ʻalu hake ʻa Tevita ʻi he lea ʻa Kata ʻaia naʻa ne lea ʻaki ʻi he huafa ʻo Sihova. 20 Pea ʻi heʻene tafoki ʻa Olinani, mo ne mamata ki he ʻāngelo, naʻa ne fakafufū ia pea mo hono ngaahi foha ʻe toko fā. Pea ko e lolotonga eni ʻae haha ʻae uite ʻe Olinani, 21 Mo ʻene hāʻeleange ʻa Tevita kia Olinani, naʻe sio atu ʻa Olinani ʻo ne mamata kia Tevita, pea naʻa ne ʻalu atu mei he hahaʻanga uite, mo ne tuʻulutui kia Tevita ʻaki ʻa hono mata ki he kelekele. 22 Pea naʻe toki pehē ʻe Tevita kia Olinani, “Foaki mai ʻae potu hahaʻanga uite, koeʻuhi ke u langa ai ha feilaulauʻanga kia Sihova: te ke tuku mai ia ʻi ha totongi totonu ki ai: kaekehe ke taʻofi ʻae mahaki fakaʻauha mei he kakai.” 23 Pea naʻe pehē ʻe Olinani kia Tevita, “Ke ke maʻu ia moʻou, pea ke fai ʻe hoku ʻeiki ko e tuʻi ʻae meʻa ʻoku lelei ʻi hono fofonga ʻoʻona: vakai foki, ʻoku ou foaki ʻae fanga pulu ke ʻatu ko e feilaulau tutu, mo e nāunau ʻoe haha uite ke fefie ʻaki, pea mo e uite ke ʻatu ko e feilaulau meʻakai; ʻoku ou ʻatu ia kotoa pē.” 24 Ka naʻe pehē ʻe he tuʻi ko Tevita kia Olinani, “ʻIkai; ka te u fakatau moʻoni ia meiate koe ʻaki ʻa hono totongi totonu: koeʻuhi ʻe ʻikai te u toʻo mai ʻae meʻa ʻaʻau maʻa Sihova, pe ʻatu taʻetotongi ha ngaahi feilaulau tutu.” 25 Ko ia hono ʻange ʻe Tevita kia Olinani ke totongi ki he potu ko ia ʻae sikeli koula ʻe onongeau naʻe fakamamafa. 26 Pea naʻe langa ʻi ai ʻe Tevita ha feilaulauʻanga kia Sihova, mo ne ʻatu ai ʻae ngaahi feilaulau tutu, mo e ngaahi feilaulau fakamelino, mo ne ui ai kia Sihova; pea naʻa ne tali ia mei he langi ʻaki ʻae afi naʻe ki he feilaulauʻanga ʻoe feilaulau tutu. 27 Pea naʻe fekau ʻe Sihova ki he ʻāngelo; pea naʻa ne toe ʻai ʻa ʻene heletā ki hono ʻaiʻanga. 28 Pea ʻi he kuonga ko ia ʻi he mamata ʻa Tevita kuo tali ʻe Sihova kiate ia ʻi he hahaʻanga uite ʻo Olinani ko e tangata Sepusi, naʻa ne toki fai feilaulau ʻi he potu ko ia. 29 He ko e fale fehikitaki ʻo Sihova ʻaia naʻe ngaohi ʻe Mōsese ʻi he toafa, pea mo e feilaulauʻanga ʻae feilaulau tutu, naʻe nofo ʻi he kuonga ko ia ʻi he potu māʻolunga ʻi Kipione. 30 Ka naʻe ʻikai faʻa ʻalu ʻa Tevita ki ai ke fehuʻi ki he ʻOtua: he naʻa ne manavahē koeʻuhi ko e heletā ʻoe ʻāngelo ʻo Sihova.
