1 ʻOku kāpui ʻa Samēlia ʻaki ʻae kautau ʻo Peni-Hatati. 13 Ko e tāmateʻi ʻae kakai Silia. 22 ʻOku toe tauʻi ʻa ʻEhapi ʻe he kakai Silia ʻi. 28 ʻOku toe tauʻi ʻae kakai Silia pea ʻoku fakavaivai kinautolu ʻe ʻEhapi. 31 Ko e fuakava ʻa ʻEhapi mo Peni-Hatati. 35 ʻOku fakahā ʻae fakamalaʻia mei he ʻOtua kia ʻEhapi.
Pea naʻe tānaki fakataha ʻe Peni-Hatati ko e tuʻi ʻo Silia ʻa ʻene kautau kotoa pē: pea naʻe ʻiate ia ʻae tuʻi ʻe toko tolungofulu ma toko ua, mo e fanga hoosi, mo e ngaahi saliote: pea naʻa ne ʻalu hake ʻo ne kāpui ʻa Samēlia ʻaki ʻae tau, ʻo ne fai ʻae tau ki ai. Pea naʻa ne kouna atu ʻae kau talafekau kia ʻEhapi ko e tuʻi ʻo ʻIsileli ki loto kolo, ʻo ne pehē kiate ia, “ʻOku pehē ʻe Peni-Hatati, ‌ʻOku ʻaʻaku ʻa hoʻo siliva mo hoʻo koula; pea ʻoku ʻaʻaku foki ʻa hoʻo ngaahi ʻunoho pea mo hoʻo fānau, ʻio, ʻakinautolu ʻoku matalelei hake ʻi ai.” Pea naʻe tali ʻe he tuʻi ʻo ʻIsileli, ʻo pehē, “ʻE hoku ʻeiki ko e tuʻi, ʻo hangē ko hoʻo lea, ʻoku ʻaʻau au, pea mo ia kotoa pē ʻoku ou maʻu.” Pea naʻe toe haʻu ʻae kau talafekau, ʻonau pehē, “ʻOku pehē mai ʻe Peni-Hatati, Neongo ʻa ʻeku fekau atu kiate koe, ʻo pehē, Te ke tuku mai kiate au hoʻo siliva, mo hoʻo koula, mo ho ngaahi ʻunoho, pea mo hoʻo fānau; Neongo ia, te u fekau atu ʻa ʻeku kau tamaioʻeiki kiate koe ʻapongipongi ʻi he feituʻu laʻā ni nai, pea te nau hakule ho fale, pea mo e ngaahi fale ʻo hoʻo kau tamaioʻeiki; pea ʻe pehē, ʻilonga ha meʻa ʻoku mata lelei ki ho mata ʻoʻou, te nau toʻo ia ʻi honau nima ʻo ʻave.” Pea naʻe toki ʻomi ʻe he tuʻi ʻo ʻIsileli ʻae kau mātuʻa kotoa pē ʻoe fonua, ʻo ne pehē, “Vakai, ʻoku ou kole kiate kimoutolu, ke mou sio ki heʻene kumi ʻe he tangata ni ha fekovikoviʻi: he naʻa ne fekau mai kiate au ke ʻatu ʻa hoku ngaahi ʻunoho, mo ʻeku ngaahi fānau, mo ʻeku siliva, pea mo ʻeku koula; pea naʻe ʻikai te u taʻofi ha meʻa meiate ia.” Pea naʻe pehē kiate ia ʻe he kau mātuʻa pea mo e kakai kotoa pē, “ʻOua naʻa ke fanongo kiate ia, pea ʻoua naʻa loto ki ai.” Ko ia naʻa ne pehē ai ki he kau tala fekau meia Peni-Hatati, “Mou tala ki hoku ʻeiki ko e tuʻi, Ko e meʻa kotoa pē naʻa ke tomuʻa fekau ai ki hoʻo tamaioʻeiki te u fai ia: ka ko e meʻa ko eni ʻe ʻikai siʻi te u mafai.” Pea naʻe ʻalu ʻae kau talafekau, ʻonau toe ʻomi ʻae lea kiate ia. 10 Pea naʻe fekau atu kiate ia ʻe Peni-Hatati, ʻo ne pehē, “Ke fai pehē ʻe he ngaahi ʻotua kiate au, ʻo lahi hake foki, ʻo kapau ʻe lahi ʻae efu ʻo Samēlia ke taki taha maʻu ʻe he kakai kotoa pē ʻoku muimui kiate au ha faluku ʻe taha.” 11 Pea naʻe pehēange ʻe he tuʻi ʻo ʻIsileli, “Tala kiate ia, ʻOua naʻa polepole ia ʻaia ʻoku nonoʻo mai hono mahafutau, ʻo hangē ko ia ʻoku ne vete ia.” 12 Pea naʻe hoko ʻo pehē, ʻi heʻene fanongo ʻa Peni-Hatati ki he lea ko ia, lolotonga ʻa ʻene inu, ʻaia mo ʻene ngaahi tuʻi ʻi he ngaahi fale fehikitaki, naʻa ne pehē ai ki heʻene kau tamaioʻeiki, “Mou teuteu.” Pea naʻa nau teuteu ke tauʻi ʻae kolo.
13 ¶ Pea vakai, naʻe haʻu ha palōfita kia ʻEhapi ko e tuʻi ʻIsileli, ʻo ne pehē, “ʻOku pehē ʻe Sihova, ‘Kuo ke mamata ki he fuʻu kakai tokolahi ni? Vakai, te u tukuange kinautolu ki ho nima he ʻaho ni; pea te ke ʻilo ko au ko Sihova.’ ” 14 Pea naʻe pehē ʻe ʻEhapi, “Ia hai?” Pea naʻe pehē mai ʻe ia, “ʻOku pehē ʻe Sihova, ʻi he nima ʻoe kau talavou ʻoe houʻeiki ʻoe ngaahi vahefonua.” Pea naʻa ne toki pehē, “Pea ko hai ʻe tataki ʻae tau?” Pea naʻa ne pehē mai, “Ko koe.” 15 Pea naʻa ne toki lau hake ʻae kau talavou ʻoe houʻeiki ʻoe ngaahi vahefonua, pea naʻa nau toko uangeau ma tolungofulu ma ua: pea hili ʻene lau kinautolu, naʻa ne lau ʻae kakai kotoa pē, ʻae fānau kotoa pē ʻa ʻIsileli, ko e toko fitu afe. 16 Pea naʻa nau ʻalu atu feʻunga mo e hoʻatāmālie. Ka naʻe lolotonga ia ʻae inu ke konā ʻa Peni-Hatati ʻi he ngaahi fale fehikitaki, ko ia mo e ngaahi tuʻi, ʻae ngaahi tuʻi ʻe toko tolungofulu ma ua ʻaia naʻe tokoni kiate ia. 17 Pea naʻe muʻomuʻa atu ʻae kau talavou ʻoe houʻeiki ʻoe ngaahi vahefonua; pea naʻe ʻalu atu ʻae fekau meia Peni-Hatati, pea naʻa nau fakahā kiate ia, ʻo pehē, ʻOku haʻu ha kau tangata mei Samēlia. 18 Pea naʻa ne pehē, “Kapau kuo nau hū mai kituʻa ʻi he melino, puke moʻui pe kinautolu; pea kapau kuo nau ʻomi kituʻa ke fai ʻae tau, puke moʻui pe kinautolu.” 19 Ko ia naʻe hū mai mei he kolo ʻae kau talavou ni ʻoe houʻeiki ʻoe ngaahi vahe fonua, pea mo e kautau naʻe muimui kiate kinautolu. 20 Pea naʻa nau tāmateʻi taki taha haʻane tangata: pea naʻe feholaki ʻae kakai Silia; pea naʻe tulia kinautolu ʻe he kakai ʻIsileli: pea naʻe hao moʻui ʻa Peni-Hatati ko e tuʻi ʻo Silia ʻi ha hoosi fakataha mo e kau heka hoosi. 21 Pea naʻe ʻalu atu ʻae tuʻi ʻo ʻIsileli, ʻo ne teʻia ʻae fanga hoosi mo e ngaahi saliote, pea naʻa ne tāmateʻi ʻae kakai Silia ʻi he tāmate lahi ʻaupito.
22 ¶ Pea naʻe haʻu ʻae palōfita ki he tuʻi ʻo ʻIsileli, mo ne pehē kiate ia, “Ke ke ʻalu, mo fakamālohi koe, pea vakai, ʻo tokanga ki he meʻa ʻoku ke fai: he ka toe hoko mai ʻae faʻahitaʻu ʻe toe haʻu ʻae tuʻi ʻa Silia ke tauʻi koe.” 23 Pea naʻe pehē ʻe he kau tamaioʻeiki ʻae tuʻi ʻo Silia kiate ia, “Ko honau ngaahi ʻotua, ko e ʻotua ʻoe ngaahi moʻunga; ko ia naʻa nau mālohi hake ai ʻiate kitautolu; kae tuku ke tau tauʻi ʻakinautolu ʻi he tokalelei, pea ko e moʻoni te tau mālohi hake ʻiate kinautolu. 24 Pea ke fai ʻae meʻa ni, ʻAve ʻae ngaahi tuʻi, ʻae tangata taki taha mei hono potu, pea fetongiʻaki kinautolu ʻae ngaahi ʻeiki tau: 25 Pea lau mai kiate koe ha kautau, ʻo hangē ko e kautau kuo mole ʻiate koe, ko e hoosi ke tatau mo e hoosi, mo e saliote ke tatau mo e saliote: pea te tau tau mo kinautolu ʻi he potu tokalelei, pea ko e moʻoni te tau mālohi hake ʻiate kinautolu.” Pea naʻa ne tokanga ki heʻenau lea, ʻo ne fai pehē. 26 Pea ʻi heʻene toe hokosia mai ʻae faʻahitaʻu, naʻe lau hake ʻae kakai Silia ʻe Peni-Hatati, ʻo ne ʻalu hake ki ʻEfeki ke tau mo ʻIsileli. 27 Pea naʻe lau hake ʻae fānau ʻa ʻIsileli, pea naʻe taki taha ʻave ʻene meʻakai, mo nau ʻalu atu ko honau tali: pea naʻe fokotuʻu honau ʻapitanga ʻi honau ʻao ʻe he fānau ʻa ʻIsileli, ʻo hangē ko e ngaahi fānganga kosi siʻi ʻe ua; ka naʻe fonu ʻae fonua kotoa ʻi he kau Silia.
28 ¶ Pea naʻe haʻu ha tangata ʻoe ʻOtua, ʻo ne lea ki he tuʻi ʻo ʻIsileli, ʻo pehē, “ʻOku pehē ʻe Sihova, ‘Koeʻuhi kuo pehē ʻe he kakai Silia, Ko e ʻOtua pe ʻoe ngaahi moʻunga ʻa Sihova, ka ʻoku ʻikai ko e ʻOtua ia ʻoe ngaahi potu tokalelei, ko ia te u tukuange ai ʻae fuʻu kakai tokolahi ni ki ho nima, pea te mou ʻilo ko Sihova au.’ ” 29 Pea naʻa nau nofo ʻo fehangaʻaki ko e taha ki he taha ʻi he ʻaho ʻe fitu. Pea naʻe pehē, ʻi hono fitu ʻoe ʻaho naʻe hoko ʻae tau: pea naʻe tāmateʻi ʻe he fānau ʻa ʻIsileli ʻae kau tangata hāʻele ʻe tokotaha kilu ʻoe kakai Silia ʻi he ʻaho pe taha. 30 Ka naʻe feholaki ʻae toenga kakai ki ʻEfeki, ki he loto kolo; pea naʻe hinga ʻae ʻa ʻi ai ʻo taʻomia ʻae kau tangata ʻe toko ua mano mo e toko fitu afe, ʻaia naʻe toe. Pea naʻe hola ʻa Peni-Hatati, ʻo ne hū mai ki he kolo, pea ki he loki ki loto fale.
31 ¶ Pea naʻe pehē ʻe heʻene kau tamaioʻeiki kiate ia, “Vakai eni, kuo mau fanongo ko e ngaahi tuʻi faʻa ʻaloʻofa ʻae ngaahi tuʻi ʻoe fale ʻo ʻIsileli: ʻoku mau kole kiate koe, tuku ke mau ʻai ʻae tauangaʻa ki homau kongaloto, mo e maea ki homau ʻulu, pea mau ʻalu atu ki he tuʻi ʻo ʻIsileli heiʻilo te ne fakamoʻui koe.” 32 Ko ia naʻa nau nonoʻo ʻaki kinautolu ʻae tauangaʻa ʻi honau kongaloto, mo e maea ki honau ʻulu, pea naʻa nau haʻu ki he tuʻi ʻo ʻIsileli, ʻo pehē, “ʻOku pehē mai ʻe hoʻo tamaioʻeiki ko Peni-Hatati, ʻOku ou kole kiate koe, “Tuku ke u moʻui.” Pea naʻa ne pehē, “He ʻoku ne kei moʻui? Ko hoku kāinga ia.” 33 Pea naʻe tokanga lahi ʻe he kau tangata pe ʻe ai ha meʻa lelei meiate ia, pea naʻa nau puke leva ki ai: pea naʻa nau pehē, “Ko ho kāinga ko Peni-Hatati. Pea naʻa ne toki pehē atu, “Mou ʻalu ʻo ʻomi ia.” Pea naʻe toki haʻu ʻa Peni-Hatati kituʻa kiate ia; pea naʻa ne fekau ia ke heka hake ki he saliote. 34 Pea naʻe pehē ʻe Peni-Hatati kiate ia, “Ko e ngaahi kolo, ʻaia naʻe kapasia ʻe heʻeku tamai mei hoʻo tamai, te u toe ʻatu; pea te ke ngaohi maʻau ʻae ngaahi hala ʻi Tamasikusi ʻo hangē ko ia naʻe ngaohi ʻe heʻeku tamai ʻi Samēlia.” Pea naʻe pehēange ai ʻe ʻEhapi, “Te u tukuange koe ke ʻalu ʻi he fuakava ni.” Ko ia naʻa ne fai mo ia ha fuakava, mo ne tukuange ia ke ʻalu.
35 ¶ Pea ko e tangata ʻe tokotaha ʻi he ngaahi foha ʻoe kau palōfita, naʻe pehē ki hono kaungāʻapi ʻi he folofola ʻa Sihova, “ʻOku ou kole ke ke taaʻi au. Pea naʻe ʻikai te ne loto ke taaʻi ia. 36 Pea naʻa ne toki pehē kiate ia, “Koeʻuhi kuo ʻikai te ke fai talangofua ki he folofola ʻa Sihova, vakai, ʻoka ke ka ʻalu atu leva meiate au, ʻe tāmateʻi koe ʻe ha laione.” Pea ʻi heʻene mahuʻi atu leva meiate ia, naʻe maʻu ia ʻe ha laione, ʻo ne tāmateʻi ia. 37 Pea naʻa ne toki ʻilo ʻae tangata kehe ʻe taha ʻo ne pehē, “ʻOku ou kole ke ke taaʻi au.” Pea naʻe taaʻi ia ʻe he tangata, pea naʻa ne lavea, ʻi hono taaʻi. 38 Ko ia naʻe ʻalu ai ʻae palōfita, mo ne tatali ʻi he hala ki he tuʻi, pea naʻa ne fakapuli ia ʻaki ʻae efuefu naʻe ʻai ki hono mata. 39 Pea ʻi heʻene ʻalu ange ai ʻae tuʻi naʻa ne ui atu ki he tuʻi: pea naʻa ne pehē, “Naʻe ʻalu atu ʻa hoʻo tamaioʻeiki ki he lotolotonga ʻoe tau; pea vakai, naʻe afe mai ha tangata ʻo ne ʻomi ha tangata kiate au, mo ne pehē, ‘Puke maʻu ʻae tangata ni: kapau ʻe mole ia ʻi ha meʻa, ʻe toki totongi ʻe hoʻo moʻui ʻa ʻene moʻui ʻaʻana, pea ka ʻikai ia te ke totongi ʻaki ha taleniti siliva ʻe taha.’ 40 Pea lolotonga ʻae femouʻekina ʻa hoʻo tamaioʻeiki, ʻiloange kuo ne hao.” Pea naʻe pehē ʻe he tuʻi ʻo ʻIsileli kiate ia, “ʻE pehē pe ʻae fakamaauʻi koe; kuo ke fakapapau pe ia ʻe koe.” 41 Pea naʻa ne fai fakatoʻotoʻo ʻo ne toʻo ʻae efuefu mei hono mata; pea naʻe toki ʻilo ia ʻe he tuʻi ʻo ʻIsileli ko e tokotaha ia ʻi he kau palōfita. 42 Pea naʻa ne pehē kiate ia, “ʻOku pehē ʻe Sihova, ‘Koeʻuhi kuo ke tukuange mei ho nima ʻae tangata naʻaku tukupau ʻeau ke fakaʻauha ʻaupito, ko ia ʻe totongi ʻaki ʻa hoʻo moʻui ʻa ʻene moʻui ʻaʻana, pea ʻe totongi ʻaki hoʻo kakai ʻa ʻene kakai ʻaʻana.’ ” 43 Pea naʻe ʻalu ʻae tuʻi ʻo ʻIsileli ki hono fale kuo māfasia mo mamahi, mo ne hoko ki Samēlia.
