1 Ko e fakataha naʻe fai ki Sikemi ke fakanofo ʻa Lehopoami. 6 ʻOku ʻikai tui ʻa Lehopoami ki he enginaki ʻa ʻene kau mātuʻa, pea ʻoku ne tali fakamālohi ʻae kau talafekau meia Selopoami. 16 ʻOku fakaaoao ʻae faʻahinga ʻe hongofulu pea ʻoku tāmateʻi ʻa ʻAtolami, pea ʻoku hola ʻa Lehopoami. 21 ʻOku fie fakalanga ʻae tau ʻe Lehopoami. 25 ʻOku fakaʻaʻau ke mālohi ʻa Selopoami ʻi he ngaahi kolo tau.
Pea naʻe ʻalu ʻa Lehopoami ki Sikemi he kuo ʻomi ki Sikemi ʻa ʻIsileli kātoa ke fakanofo ia ko e tuʻi. Pea naʻe hoko ʻo pehē, ʻi heʻene fanongo ki ai ʻa Selopoami ko e foha ʻo Nipati, ʻaia naʻe kei nofo ʻi ʻIsipite, (he ne hola ia mei he ʻao ʻo Solomone ko e tuʻi, pea naʻe nofo ʻa Selopoami ʻi ʻIsipite;) Naʻa nau fekau atu mo ui kiate ia. Pea naʻe haʻu ʻa Selopoami pea mo e fakataha kotoa pē ʻo ʻIsileli, ʻonau lea kia Lehopoami, ʻo pehē, “Naʻe ngaohi ʻe hoʻo tamai ʻemau kavenga ke fakamāfasia: ka ko eni ke ke fakamaʻamaʻa ʻe koe ʻemau ngāue fakamāfasia ki hoʻo tamai, pea mo ʻene kavenga mamafa ʻaia naʻa ne ʻai kiate kimautolu, pea te mau tauhi kiate koe.” Pea naʻa ne pehēange kiate kinautolu, “Mou ʻalu ʻi he ʻaho ʻe tolu, pea hili ia mou toe omi kiate au.” Pea naʻe ʻalu ʻae kakai.
¶ Pea naʻe alea ʻae tuʻi ko Lehopoami mo e kau mātuʻa, ʻakinautolu naʻe tutuʻu ʻi he ʻao ʻo Solomone lolotonga ʻa ʻene kei moʻui ʻaʻana, ʻo ne pehē, “Ko e hā homou loto pe ʻe fēfē ʻa ʻeku tali ki he kakai ni?” Pea naʻa nau lea kiate ia, ʻo pehē, “Kapau te ke tauhi ki he kakai ni he ʻaho ni, pea ke ngāue ki ai, mo ke talia kinautolu, mo ke lea ʻaki ʻae ngaahi lea lelei kiate kinautolu, pehē, te nau hoko ko hoʻo kau tamaioʻeiki ʻo taʻengata.” Ka naʻa ne liʻaki ʻae enginaki ʻae kau mātuʻa, ʻaia naʻa nau fai kiate ia, pea naʻa ne alea mo e kau talavou ʻaia naʻe tupu hake mo ia, pea naʻa nau tutuʻu ʻi hono ʻao: Pea naʻa ne pehē kiate kinautolu, “Ko e hā homou loto ʻomoutolu koeʻuhi ke tau tali ʻaki ʻae kakai ni, ʻaia kuo lea mai kiate au, ʻo pehē, ‘Fakamaʻamaʻa ʻae kavenga ʻaia naʻe ʻai kiate kimautolu ʻe hoʻo tamai?’ ” 10 Pea naʻe leaange kiate ia ʻae kau talavou naʻe tupu hake mo ia, ʻo pehē, “ʻE pehē ni hoʻo lea ki he kakai ni naʻe lea mai kiate koe, ʻo pehē, ‘Naʻe fakamamafa ʻemau kavenga ʻe hoʻo tamai, ka ke fakamaʻamaʻa ia ʻe koe kiate kimautolu:’ ʻe pehē ni ʻa hoʻo lea kiate kinautolu, ‘ʻE fuofua lahi hake ʻa hoku louhiʻi nima siʻi ʻi he kongaloto ʻo ʻeku tamai.’ 11 Pea ko eni naʻe fakakavenga ʻaki kimoutolu ʻe heʻeku tamai ʻae kavenga mamafa, ka te u fakalahi ki hoʻomou kavenga: naʻe kinisi ʻaki ʻakimoutolu ʻe heʻeku tamai ʻae ngaahi meʻa tā, ka te u tautea kimoutolu ʻaki ʻae fanga sikopio.”
12 ¶ Ko ia naʻe haʻu ʻa Selopoami pea mo e kakai kotoa pē kia Lehopoami ʻi hono tolu ʻoe ʻaho, ʻo hangē ko ia naʻe tala ʻe he tuʻi, ʻo pehē, “Toe haʻu kiate au ʻi hono tolu ʻoe ʻaho.” 13 Pea naʻe tali fakamālohi ʻae kakai ʻe he tuʻi, ʻo ne liʻaki ʻae fakakaukau ʻae kau mātuʻa ʻaia naʻa nau fai kiate ia; 14 Pea naʻa ne lea kiate kinautolu ʻo hangē ko ia naʻe tala ʻe he kau talavou, ʻo pehē, “Naʻe fakamamafa ʻa hoʻomou kavenga ʻe heʻeku tamai, ka te u fakalahi ki hoʻomou kavenga: naʻe kinisi kimoutolu ʻe heʻeku tamai ʻaki ʻae ngaahi meʻa tā, ka te u tautea ʻakimoutolu ʻeau ʻaki ʻae fanga sikopio.” 15 Ko ia naʻe ʻikai tui ʻae tuʻi ki he kakai; pea naʻe tupunga ia meia Sihova, koeʻuhi ke ne fakamoʻoni ki heʻene folofola, ʻaia naʻe folofolaʻaki ʻe Sihova ʻia ʻAhisa ko e tangata Sailo kia Selopoami ko e foha ʻo Nipati.
16 ¶ Pea ko ia, ʻi he mamata ʻa ʻIsileli kātoa naʻe ʻikai tui ʻae tuʻi kiate kinautolu, naʻe pehēange ʻe he kakai ki he tuʻi, “Ko e fē haʻamau tufakanga ʻia Tevita? Pea ʻoku ʻikai ha maʻu tofiʻa ʻi he foha ʻo Sese: ʻE ʻIsileli mou ʻalu ki homou ngaahi fale ka ko koe Tevita, vakai ki ho fale ʻoʻou.” Ko ia naʻe ʻalu ai ʻa ʻIsileli ki honau ngaahi fale. 17 Ka koeʻuhi ko e fānau ʻa ʻIsileli ʻaia naʻe nofo ʻi he ngaahi kolo ʻo Siuta, naʻe pule ʻa Lehopoami kiate kinautolu. 18 Pea naʻe toki fekau atu ʻe he tuʻi ko Lehopoami ʻa ʻAtolami ʻaia naʻe pule ki he tukuhau; pea naʻe lisingi ia ʻaki ʻae maka ʻe ʻIsileli kātoa, pea naʻa ne mate ai. Ko ia naʻe fai fakatoʻotoʻo ʻe he tuʻi ko Lehopoami ke ne heka hake ki hono saliote, kae hola ki Selūsalema. 19 Pea pehē, talu mei ai kuo fakaangatuʻu ʻa ʻIsileli ki he fale ʻo Tevita ʻo aʻu mai ki he ʻaho ni. 20 Pea naʻe hoko ʻo pehē, ʻi he fanongo ʻe ʻIsileli kātoa kuo toe haʻu ʻa Selopoami, naʻa nau fekau atu mo ui mai ia ki he fakataha, pea naʻe fakanofo ia ke ne tuʻi ki ʻIsileli kātoa: naʻe ʻikai ha taha ke kau ki he fale ʻo Tevita, ka ko e faʻahinga pe taha ʻo Siuta.
21 ¶ Pea ʻi heʻene hoko mai ʻa Lehopoami ki Selūsalema, naʻa ne fakataha mai ʻae fale kotoa pē ʻo Siuta, mo e faʻahinga ʻo Penisimani, ko e kautau ʻe tokotaha kilu mo e toko valu mano, ko e kau tangata naʻe fili, ke tauʻi ʻae fale ʻo ʻIsileli, koeʻuhi ke toe ʻomi ai ʻae puleʻanga kia Lehopoami ko e foha ʻo Solomone. 22 Ka naʻe hoko mai ʻae folofola ʻae ʻOtua kia Simaia ko e tangata ʻae ʻOtua, ʻo pehē, 23 Lea kia Lehopoami ko e foha ʻo Solomone, ko e tuʻi ʻo Siuta, pea ki he fale kātoa ʻo Siuta mo Penisimani, pea ki he toenga ʻoe kakai, ʻo pehē, 24 “ʻOku pehē ʻe Sihova, ʻE ʻikai te mou ʻalu hake, pe tauʻi ʻa homou kāinga ko e fānau ʻa ʻIsileli: toe foki atu ʻae tangata taki taha ki hono fale; he ʻoku meiate au ʻae meʻa ni.” Ko ia naʻa nau fanongo ki he folofola ʻa Sihova, pea naʻa nau liliu ke ʻalu, ʻo tatau mo e folofola ʻa Sihova.
25 ¶ Hili ia naʻe langa hake ʻe Selopoami ʻa Sikemi ʻi he moʻunga ko ʻIfalemi, pea ne nofo ʻi ai; pea naʻa ne ʻalu atu mei ai ʻo ne langa hake ʻa Penieli. 26 Pea naʻe pehē ʻe Selopoami ʻi hono loto, “ʻE liliu atu eni ʻae puleʻanga ki he fale ʻa Tevita: 27 Kapau ʻe ʻalu hake ʻae kakai ni ke fai ʻae feilaulau ʻi he fale ʻo Sihova ʻi Selūsalema, ʻe toki liliu atu ai ʻae loto ʻoe kakai ni ki honau ʻeiki, ʻio, kia Lehopoami ko e tuʻi ʻo Siuta, pea te nau tāmateʻi au, mo toe ʻalu kia Lehopoami ko e tuʻi ʻo Siuta.” 28 Ko ia naʻe fakakaukau ai ʻae tuʻi, pea naʻa ne ngaohi ʻae ongo ʻuhiki pulu ʻaki ʻae koula, ʻo ne pehē kiate kinautolu, “ʻOku faingataʻa fau ke mou ʻalu hake ki Selūsalema: vakai ko homou ngaahi ʻotua eni, ʻE ʻIsileli, ʻaia naʻe ʻohake kimoutolu mei he fonua ko ʻIsipite.” 29 Pea naʻa ne tuku ʻae taha ʻi Peteli, pea ko e taha naʻa ne tuku ʻi Tani. 30 Pea naʻe hoko ʻae meʻa ni ko e angahala; he naʻe ʻalu ʻae kakai ke fai lotu ki he taha ʻi Tani. 31 Pea naʻa ne ngaohi ʻae fale ʻi he ngaahi potu māʻolunga, mo ne fili ʻae kau taulaʻeiki mei he faʻahinga kakai, ʻakinautolu naʻe ʻikai ʻoe ngaahi foha ʻo Livai. 32 Pea naʻe kotofa ʻe Selopoami ʻae kātoanga ki hono valu ʻoe māhina, ʻi hono ʻaho hongofulu ma nima ʻoe māhina, ʻo tatau mo e kātoanga naʻe fai ʻi Siuta, pea naʻa ne fai feilaulau ki he ʻuhiki pulu naʻa ne ngaohi: pea naʻa ne fakanofo ʻi Peteli ʻae kau taulaʻeiki ʻaia naʻa ne fili. 33 Ko ia, naʻa ne fai feilaulau ki he feilaulauʻanga ʻaia naʻa ne ngaohi ʻi Peteli ʻi hono ʻaho hongofulu ma nima ʻo hono valu ʻoe māhina, ʻae māhina ko ia naʻa ne fakakaukau ki ai ʻi hono loto ʻoʻona; pea naʻe tuʻutuʻuni ʻae kātoanga ki he fānau ʻa ʻIsileli: pea naʻa ne fai ʻae feilaulau ʻi he feilaulauʻanga, pea tutu ai ʻae meʻa namu kakala.
