1 ʻOku teʻia ʻe he kau Filisitia ʻae kakai ʻIsileli ʻi Epenisa. 3 ʻOku nau ʻomi ʻae puha ʻoe fuakava pea ilifia ai ʻae kau Filisitia. 10 Kuo toe teʻia ʻakinautolu, pea kuo teʻia ʻa Hofini mo Finiasi. 12 Pea tō fakafoʻohake ʻa Ilai ʻi heʻene ongoʻi ia, pea mafesi ai hono kia. 19 ʻOku vaivai ai ʻae ʻunoho ʻo Finiasi ʻi heʻene fāʻeleʻi ʻa Ikapote, pea mate ia.
Pea naʻe hoko ʻae lea ʻa Samuela ki ʻIsileli kotoa pē. Pea naʻe ʻalu ʻa ʻIsileli ke tauʻi ʻae kakai Filisitia, ʻonau nofoaki ʻo ofi ki Epenisa: pea naʻe nofoaki ʻae kau Filisitia ʻi ʻEfeki. Pea naʻe hiki ʻae tau ʻae kau Filisitia ke tau ki ʻIsileli: pea ʻi he fakahoko ʻae tau, naʻe teʻia leva ʻa ʻIsileli ʻi he ʻao ʻoe kau Filisitia: pea naʻa nau taaʻi ʻi he tau ʻi he ngoue ʻae kau tangata ʻe toko fā afe nai.
¶ Pea ʻi he hoko mai ʻae kakai ki he ʻapitanga, naʻe pehē ʻe he kau mātuʻa ʻo ʻIsileli, “Ko e hā kuo teʻia ai ʻe Sihova kitautolu he ʻaho ni ʻi he ʻao ʻoe kau Filisitia? Ke tau ʻomi kiate kitautolu ʻae puha ʻoe fuakava ʻo Sihova mei Sailo, koeʻuhi, ʻi heʻene hoko kiate kitautolu, ke ne fakamoʻui ʻakitautolu mei he nima ʻo hotau ngaahi fili.” Ko ia naʻe fekau ʻe he kakai ki Sailo, koeʻuhi kenau ʻomi mei ai ʻae puha ʻoe fuakava ʻo Sihova ʻoe ngaahi kautau, ko ia ʻoku nofo ʻi he vahaʻa ʻoe ongo Selupi: pea naʻe haʻu ai ʻae ongo foha ʻo Ilai, ko Hofini mo Finiasi, mo e puha ʻoe fuakava ʻoe ʻOtua. Pea ʻi he hoko ʻae puha ʻoe fuakava ʻo Sihova ki he ʻapitanga, naʻe mavava ʻa ʻIsileli kotoa pē ʻi he mavava lahi, ko ia naʻe ʻuʻulu ai ʻae fonua. Pea ʻi he fanongo ʻae kakai Filisitia ki he longoaʻa ʻoe mavava, naʻa nau pehē, “Ko e hā hono ʻuhinga ʻoe fuʻu mavava lahi ni ʻi he ʻapitanga ʻoe kakai Hepelū? Pea naʻa nau ʻilo kuo hoko ʻae puha tapu ʻo Sihova ki he ʻapitanga. Pea naʻe manavahē ai ʻae kakai Filisitia, he naʻa nau pehē, Kuo hāʻele mai ʻae ʻOtua ki he ʻapitanga. Pea naʻa nau pehē, Malaʻia kiate kitautolu! He kuo ʻikai ha meʻa pehē talu mei muʻa. Malaʻia kiate kitautolu! Ko hai te ne fakamoʻui ʻakitautolu mei he nima ʻoe ngaahi ʻOtua māfimafi na? Ko e ngaahi ʻOtua eni naʻe taaʻi ʻae kakai ʻIsipite ʻi he ngaahi meʻa mamahi lahi ʻi he toafa. ‌ʻAe kau Filisitia, mou mālohi, ʻo fai ʻo ngalingali tangata, telia naʻa mou hoko ko e kau hopoate ki he kakai Hepelū, ʻo hangē ko ʻenau hopoate kiate kimoutolu: fai ʻo ngali mo e kau tangata ʻo tau.” 10 Pea naʻe tau ʻae kau Filisitia, pea naʻe toe teʻia ʻa ʻIsileli, pea naʻa nau hola ʻae tangata taki taha ki hono fale fehikitaki: pea naʻe mate ai ʻae tokolahi ʻaupito he naʻe tō ai ʻae toko tolu mano ʻoe kau tangata ʻIsileli naʻe ʻalu ʻi lalo. 11 Pea naʻe moʻua ʻae puha tapu ʻoe ʻOtua; pea naʻe tāmateʻi ʻae ongo foha ʻo Ilai ko Hofini mo Finiasi.
12 ¶ Pea naʻe lele ʻae tangata Penisimani mei he tau, ʻo hoko ki Sailo ʻi he ʻaho ko ia, kuo mahaehae hono kofu, pea pani kelekele hono ʻulu. 13 Pea ʻi heʻene hoko ki ai vakai naʻe nofo leʻo pe ʻa Ilai ʻi he nofoʻa ʻi he veʻehala: he naʻe tetetete hono loto telia ʻae puha tapu ʻoe ʻOtua. Pea ʻi he hoko ʻae tangata ki he kolo, ʻo fakahā ia, naʻe tangi kalanga ʻae kolo kotoa pē. 14 Pea ʻi heʻene ongoʻi ʻe Ilai ʻae leʻo ʻoe tangi, naʻe pehē ʻe ia, “Ko e hā hono ʻuhinga ʻoe maveuveu ni?” Pea naʻe haʻu fakatoʻotoʻo ʻae tangata ʻo tala kia Ilai. 15 Pea naʻe hivangofulu taʻu mo e taʻu ʻe valu ʻae motuʻa ʻo Ilai; pea kuo poʻuli hono mata, naʻe ʻikai faʻa mamata. 16 Pea naʻe pehē ʻe he tangata kia Ilai, “Ko au ia kuo u haʻu mei he tau, pea u hola mei he tau he ʻaho ni. Pea pehē ʻe ia, “ʻE hoku foha, Ko e hā kuo fai?” 17 Pea talaange ʻe he tangata fekau, “Kuo hola ʻa ʻIsileli mei he ʻao ʻoe kakai Filisitia, pea kuo tō ʻae tokolahi ʻi he kakai, pea kuo mate ʻa ho ongo foha ko Hofini mo Finiasi, pea kuo moʻua ʻae puha tapu ʻoe ʻOtua.” 18 Pea ʻi heʻene lea ki he puha tapu ʻoe ʻOtua, naʻe hoko ʻo pehē, naʻe tō fakaholomui ia mei he nofoʻa ʻi he potu ʻoe matapā, pea mafesi ai hono kia, pea pekia ai: he ko e tangata motuʻa ia pea mamafa. Pea naʻe fakamaauʻi ʻe ia ʻa ʻIsileli ʻi he taʻu ʻe fāngofulu.
19 ¶ Pea naʻe feitama hono ʻofefine ʻi he fono, ko e ʻunoho ʻo Finiasi, kuo kakato hono māhina ke fāʻele: pea ʻi heʻene ongoʻi ʻae ongoongo kuo moʻua ʻae puha tapu ʻoe ʻOtua, pea kuo pekia ʻa ʻene tamai ʻi he fono, mo hono ʻunoho, naʻe punou hifo ʻe ia ia pea langā; he naʻe hoko leva ʻae langā kiate ia. 20 Pea feʻunga mo ʻene pekia, naʻe pehē kiate ia ʻe he kau fefine naʻe tuʻu ofi kiate ia, ʻoua naʻa ke manavahē; he kuo ke fāʻeleʻi ʻae tama. Ka naʻe ʻikai te ne lea, pea naʻe ʻikai te ne tokanga ki ai. 21 Pea naʻa ne ui ʻae tama ko Ikapote, ko e pehē, Kuo mole ʻae nāunau mei ʻIsileli: koeʻuhi kuo moʻua ʻae puha tapu ʻoe ʻOtua, pea koeʻuhi kuo pekia ʻene tamai ʻi he fono mo hono ʻunoho. 22 Pea naʻe pehē ʻe ia, Kuo mole ʻae nāunau mei ʻIsileli: he kuo moʻua ʻae puha tapu ʻoe ʻOtua.
