Pea ko e hingoa ʻo ʻene faʻē ko ʻAsupa ko e ʻofefine ʻo Sili. 43 Pea naʻa ne ʻeveʻeva ʻi he hala kotoa pē ʻo ʻene tamai ko ʻAsa; naʻe ʻikai te ne tafoki mei ai, ʻo ne fai ʻaia naʻe lelei ʻi he ʻao ʻo Sihova: ka neongo ia naʻe ʻikai ʻave ʻae ngaahi potu māʻolunga; naʻe kei fai feilaulau mo tutu ʻae meʻa namu kakala ʻe he kakai ʻi he ngaahi potu māʻolunga. 44 Pea naʻe alea ʻa Sihosafate mo e tuʻi ʻo ʻIsileli ke na melino pe. 45 Pea ko eni, ko e toe ʻoe ngaahi ngāue ʻa Sihosafate, mo e mālohi naʻe hā ʻiate ia, mo ʻene faʻa tau, ʻikai kuo tohi ia ʻi he tohi fakamatala ki he ngaahi tuʻi ʻo Siuta? 46 Pea ko e toenga kakai angafakasotoma ʻaia naʻe toe ʻi he ngaahi ʻaho ʻo ʻene tamai ko ʻAsa, naʻa ne ʻave mei he fonua. 47 ‌ʻI he kuonga ko ia naʻe ʻikai ha tuʻi ʻi ʻItomi: ka naʻe pule ha tokotaha maʻae tuʻi. 48 Naʻe maʻu ʻe Sihosafate ʻae ngaahi vaka mei Tasisi ke folau ki Ofeli ke ʻomi koula; ka naʻe ʻikai hoko ʻae folau; he naʻe maumauʻi ʻae ngaahi vaka ʻi Esioni-Kepa. 49 Pea naʻe pehē ai ʻe ʻAhasia ko e foha ʻo ʻEhapi kia Sihosafate, Tuku ke ʻalu ʻa ʻeku kau tamaioʻeiki fakataha mo hoʻo kau tamaioʻeiki ʻi he folau. Ka naʻe ʻikai loto ki ai ʻa Sihosafate.
50 ¶ Pea naʻe mohe ʻa Sihosafate mo ʻene ngaahi tamai, pea naʻe fai hono putu ki he potu ʻo ʻene ngaahi tamai ʻi he Kolo ʻo Tevita ko ʻene tamai: pea naʻe fetongi ia ʻi he pule ʻe Siholami ko hono foha.
