1 Ko e mahaki mo e pekia ʻae foha ʻo Selopoami. 6 Ko e valokiʻi ʻa Selopoami ʻe ʻAhisa, ko e meʻa ʻi he folofola ʻa Sihova. 19 Ko e hoko ʻa Natapi mo Selopoami. 21 Ko e pule kovi ʻa Lehopoami. 25 Ko e veteki ʻa Selūsalema ʻe Sisaki. 29 Ko e hoko mo Lehopoami ʻa ʻApisami ʻi he pule.
‌ʻI he kuonga ko ia naʻe hoko ʻae mahaki kia ʻApisa ko e ʻalo ʻo Selopoami. Pea naʻe pehē ʻe Selopoami ki hono ʻunoho, “ʻOku ou kole kiate koe, ke ke tuʻu hake, mo fakapulipuli koe, koeʻuhi ke ʻoua naʻa ʻilo ko e ʻunoho koe ʻo Selopoami; pea ke ʻalu ki Sailo; vakai, ʻoku ʻi ai ʻa ʻAhisa ko e palōfita, ʻaia naʻa ne fakahā kiate au ke u tuʻi ki he kakai ni. Pea ʻave ʻi ho nima ha foʻi mā ʻe hongofulu, mo e ngaahi foʻi mā manifinifi, mo e hina ʻe taha ʻoe honi, pea ke ʻalu kiate ia: ʻe fakahā ʻe ia kiate koe pe ko e hā ha meʻa ʻe hoko ki he tamasiʻi.” Pea naʻe fai pehē ʻe he ʻunoho ʻo Selopoami, mo ne tuʻu hake, ʻo ʻalu ki Sailo, ʻo ne hoko ange ki he fale ʻo ʻAhisa. Pea naʻe ʻikai faʻa mamata ʻe ʻAhisa; he naʻe kui hono mata ko e meʻa ʻi heʻene motuʻa.
¶ Pea naʻe pehē ʻe Sihova kia ʻAhisa, “Vakai, ʻoku haʻu ʻae ʻunoho ʻo Selopoami ke fehuʻi kiate koe koeʻuhi ko ʻene tama; he ʻoku mahaki ia: pea ʻe pehē mo pehē ʻa hoʻo lea kiate ia: he koeʻuhi, ʻi heʻene hū mai, te ne fai ʻe ia ʻo hangē ko ha fefine kehe ia.” Pea naʻe pehē, ʻi heʻene fanongo ʻe ʻAhisa ki he patū ʻo hono vaʻe, ʻi heʻene hū mai ʻi he matapā, naʻa ne pehē, “Hū mai, ʻa koe ko e ʻunoho ʻo Selopoami; ko e hā ʻoku ke fai ke ke hangē ko ha taha kehe? He kuo fekauʻi au kiate koe mo e ongoongo mamafa. ‌ʻAlu, ʻo tala kia Selopoami, ‘ʻOku pehē ʻe Sihova ko e ʻOtua ʻo ʻIsileli, Koeʻuhi ko ʻeku hakeakiʻi koe mei he lotolotonga ʻoe kakai, pea u tuku ke ke ʻeiki koe ki hoku kakai ʻIsileli, Pea u haea mai ʻae puleʻanga mei he fale ʻo Tevita, mo foaki ia kiate koe: pea kuo ʻikai te ke tatau mo ʻeku tamaioʻeiki ko Tevita, ʻaia naʻe fai ki heʻeku ngaahi fekau, pea ne muimui mai kiate au ʻaki ʻa hono loto kotoa, ke fai angatonu pe ʻi hoku ʻao; Ka kuo lahi hake ʻa hoʻo fai kovi ʻiate kinautolu fulipē naʻe ʻi muʻa ʻiate koe: he kuo ke ʻalu mo ngaohi ʻae ngaahi ʻotua kehe, mo e ngaahi fakatātā ʻoe ukamea haka, ke fakatupu ʻa ʻeku houhau, pea kuo ke liʻaki au ki ho tuʻa: 10 Ko ia, vakai, te u ʻomi ʻae kovi ki he fale ʻo Selopoami, pea te u motuhi meia Selopoami ʻae kau tangata kotoa pē, pea mo ia ʻoku tāpuni mo toe ʻi ʻIsileli, pea teu ʻave ʻae toenga ʻoe fale ʻo Selopoami, ʻo hangē ko e taufetuku ʻe ha tangata ʻae kinohaʻa, kaeʻoua ke ʻosiʻosi ʻaupito ia. 11 Ko ia ʻia Selopoami ʻoku mate ʻi he kolo ʻe keina ia ʻe he fanga kulī; pea ko ia ʻe mate ʻi he ngoue ʻe keina ia ʻe he fanga manupuna; he kuo folofola ki ai ʻa Sihova.’ 12 Ko ia ke ke tuʻu hake koe, mo ʻalu ki ho fale ʻoʻou: pea ʻoka hū atu ho vaʻe ki he kolo, ʻe mate ʻae tamasiʻi. 13 Pea ʻe tēngihia ia ʻe ʻIsileli kotoa, mo tanu ia: he ko ia tokotaha pe ʻia Selopoami ʻe hoko ki he faʻitoka, koeʻuhi kuo ʻilo ʻiate ia ha meʻa ʻoku lelei kia Sihova ko e ʻOtua ʻo ʻIsileli ʻi he fale ʻo Selopoami. 14 Pea ʻe fokotuʻu hake foki ʻe Sihova maʻana ha tuʻi ki ʻIsileli, ʻaia te ne fakaʻauha ʻae fale ʻo Selopoami ʻi he ʻaho ko ia: kae fēfē? ʻE hoko ia ʻi hono kuonga. 15 Koeʻuhi ʻe taaʻi ʻa ʻIsileli ʻe Sihova, ʻo hangē ko e luluʻi ha vaʻakaho ʻi he vai, pea te ne taʻaki fuʻu hake ʻa ʻIsileli mei he fonua lelei ni, ʻaia naʻa ne foaki ki heʻenau ngaahi tamai, pea te ne fakamovetevete kinautolu ki he tuʻa vaitafe, koeʻuhi kuo nau ngaohi ʻae ngaahi vao tapu, ke fakatupu ʻae houhau ʻo Sihova. 16 Pea te ne liʻaki ʻa ʻIsileli koeʻuhi ko e ngaahi angahala ʻa Selopoami, ʻaia naʻe fai angahala ʻe ia, pea naʻa ne fakaangahalaʻi ʻa ʻIsileli.”
17 ¶ Pea naʻe tuʻu hake ʻae ʻunoho ʻo Selopoami, mo ne ʻalu, ʻo ne haʻu ki Tilisa: pea ʻi heʻene hoko mai ki he hūʻanga ʻoe matapā, naʻe mate ʻae tamasiʻi; 18 Pea naʻa nau fai hono putu; pea naʻe tēngihia ia ʻe ʻIsileli kātoa, ʻo fakatatau mo e folofola ʻa Sihova, ʻaia naʻa ne folofolaʻaki ʻi heʻene tamaioʻeiki ko ʻAhisa ko e palōfita. 19 Pea ko hono toe ʻoe ngaahi meʻa naʻe fai ʻe Selopoami, ʻa ʻene ngaahi tau, mo e anga ʻo ʻene pule, vakai, kuo tohi ia ʻi he tohi fakamatala ki he ngaahi tuʻi ʻo ʻIsileli. 20 Pea ko e kuonga naʻe pule ai ʻa Selopoami ko e taʻu ia ʻe uofulu ma ua: pea naʻa ne tokoto hifo fakataha ia mo ʻene ngaahi tamai, pea naʻe fetongi ia ʻi he pule ʻe Natapi ko hono foha.
21 ¶ Pea naʻe pule ʻi Siuta ʻa Lehopoami ko e foha ʻo Solomone. Naʻe fāngofulu ma taha ʻae taʻu ʻo Lehopoami ʻi heʻene kamata pule, pea naʻa ne pule ʻi Selūsalema ʻi he taʻu ʻe hongofulu ma fitu, ʻae kolo ko ia naʻe fili ʻe Sihova mei he faʻahinga kotoa pē ʻo ʻIsileli, ke tuku ʻi ai ʻa hono huafa. Pea ko e hingoa ʻo ʻene faʻē ko Neama ko e fefine ʻAmoni. 22 Pea naʻe fai kovi ʻa Siuta ʻi he ʻao ʻo Sihova, pea naʻa nau fakatupu ʻae fuaʻa ʻiate ia ko e meʻa ʻi heʻenau ngaahi angahala ʻaia naʻa nau fai, ʻo lahi hake ʻaupito ʻi he meʻa kotoa pē naʻe fai ʻe heʻenau ngaahi tamai. 23 He naʻa nau langa foki ʻekinautolu ʻae ngaahi potu māʻolunga mo e ngaahi tamapua, mo e ngaahi vao tapu, ʻi he tumutumu ʻoe moʻunga kotoa pē, pea ʻi he lolo ʻakau mata kotoa pē. 24 Pea naʻe ai ʻae kakai foki ʻi he fonua naʻe angafakasotoma: pea naʻa nau fai ʻo fakatatau mo e ngaahi meʻa fakalielia kotoa pē ʻoe ngaahi puleʻanga ʻaia naʻe kapusi atu mei he ʻao ʻoe fānau ʻa ʻIsileli.
25 ¶ Pea naʻe hoko ʻo pehē ʻi hono nima ʻoe taʻu ʻoe tuʻi ko Lehopoami, naʻe haʻu ʻa Sisaki ko e tuʻi ʻo ʻIsipite ke ne tauʻi ʻa Selūsalema. 26 Pea naʻa ne ʻave ʻae ngaahi meʻa mahuʻinga ʻoe fale ʻo Sihova, mo e koloa ʻi he fale ʻoe tuʻi: ʻio, naʻa ne ʻave kotoa pē: pea naʻa ne ʻave ʻae ngaahi pā koula ʻaia naʻe ngaohi ʻe Solomone. 27 Pea naʻe ngaohi ʻe he tuʻi ko Lehopoami ʻae ngaahi pā palasa ko hono fetongi, ʻo ne tuku ia ki he nima ʻoe ʻeiki naʻe pule ki he kau leʻo, ʻaia naʻe leʻohi ʻae matapā ʻoe fale ʻoe tuʻi. 28 Pea naʻe fai ʻo pehē, ʻi heʻene hū atu ʻae tuʻi ki he fale ʻo Sihova, naʻe fua atu ia ʻe he kau leʻo, pea nau toe ʻomi ia ki he potu fale ʻoe kau leʻo.
29 ¶ Pea ko eni, ko hono toe ʻoe ngaahi ngāue ʻa Lehopoami, mo ia kotoa pē naʻa ne fai, ʻikai kuo tohi ia ʻi he tohi fakamatala ki he ngaahi tuʻi ʻo Siuta? 30 Pea naʻe fai ʻae tau ʻe Lehopoami mo Selopoami ʻi hona ngaahi ʻaho kotoa pē. 31 Pea naʻe mohe ʻa Lehopoami mo ʻene ngaahi tamai, pea naʻe tanu ia fakataha mo ʻene ngaahi tamai ʻi he Kolo ʻo Tevita. Pea ko e hingoa ʻo ʻene faʻē ko Neama ko e fefine ʻAmoni. Pea naʻe hoko mo ia ʻi he pule ʻa ʻApisami ko hono foha.
