19
1 ʻOku fakahā ʻe Sonatane ʻae loto ʻo ʻene tamai ke tāmateʻi ʻa Tevita. 4 ʻOku ne fakalotoʻi ʻene tamai ke fakalelei. 8 Ko e meʻa ʻi he fai tāpuekina ʻa Tevita ʻi he taʻu foʻou, ʻoku toe tupu ai ʻae fakafasifasi ʻa Saula kiate ia. 12 ʻOku kākaaʻi ʻe Mikale ʻene tamai ʻaki ʻae meʻa fakatātā ʻi he mohenga ʻo Tevita. 18 ʻOku hoko ʻa Tevita kia Samuela ʻi Naoti. 20 Ko e kau tangata naʻe fekau ʻe Saula ke puke ʻa Tevita. 22 ʻOku malanga foki ʻa Saula.
Pea naʻe lea ʻa Saula kia Sonatane ko hono foha, pea ki heʻene kau tamaioʻeiki kotoa pē, koeʻuhi kenau tāmateʻi ʻa Tevita. Ka naʻe loto lelei lahi ʻa Sonatane ko e foha ʻo Saula kia Tevita: pea naʻe fakahā ʻe Sonatane kia Tevita, ʻo pehē, “ʻOku fai ʻe Saula ko ʻeku tamai ke ne tāmateʻi koe: pea ko eni, ʻoku ou kole kiate koe, ke ke vakai kiate koe ke ʻoua ke pongipongi, pea nofo ʻi ha potu lilo, ʻo toitoiʻi koe: Pea te u ʻalu ʻo tuʻu ofi ki heʻeku tamai ʻi he ngoue ʻaia ʻoku ke ʻi ai, pea te ma alea mo ʻeku tamai kiate koe; pea ko ia te u mamata ki ai, teu tala kiate koe.
¶ Pea naʻe lea lelei ʻa Sonatane ki heʻene tamai ko Saula kia Tevita, ʻo ne pehē, “Ke ʻoua naʻa fai ha kovi ʻe he tuʻi ki heʻene tamaioʻeiki ko Tevita; koeʻuhi kuo ʻikai te ne fai angahala kiate koe pea koeʻuhi ko ʻene ngaahi ngāue kuo lelei ʻaupito kiate koe: He naʻa ne ʻai ʻene moʻui ki hono nima, pea ne tāmateʻi ʻae tangata Filisitia, pea naʻe fai ʻe Sihova ʻae fakamoʻui lahi maʻa ʻIsileli: naʻa ke vakaiʻi ia: pea ne ke fiefia ai: pea ko e hā ai te ke fai angahala ai ki he toto angatonu, ke tāmateʻi ʻa Tevita taʻehanotuʻunga?” Pea naʻe tokanga ʻa Saula ki he leʻo ʻo Sonatane: pea fuakava ʻa Saula, ʻI he moʻui ʻa Sihova ʻe ʻikai tāmateʻi ia. Pea naʻe ui ʻe Sonatane ʻa Tevita, pea fakahā ʻe Sonatane kiate ia ʻae ngaahi meʻa ni. Pea naʻe ʻomi ʻe Sonatane ʻa Tevita kia Saula, pea naʻe ʻi hono ʻao ia ʻo hangē ko ʻene ʻi ai ʻi muʻa.
¶ Pea naʻe toe hoko ʻae tau: pea ʻalu ai ʻa Tevita ʻo tauʻi ʻae kakai Filisitia, pea ne taaʻi ʻakinautolu ʻi he tāmateʻi lahi; pea naʻa nau hola meiate ia. Pea naʻe ʻia Saula ʻae laumālie kovi meia Sihova, ʻi heʻene nofo ʻi hono fale mo e tao ʻi hono nima: pea naʻe tā ʻene meʻa ʻe Tevita ʻaki hono nima. 10 Pea naʻe feinga ʻa Saula ke ne veloʻi ʻa Tevita ki he holisi ʻaki ʻae tao; ka naʻe kalo mālie ʻa Tevita, pea velo ʻo tau ʻae tao ki he holisi: pea naʻe hola ʻa Tevita ʻo hao mei hono ʻao ʻi he pō ko ia. 11 Pea naʻe fekau ʻe Saula ʻae kau tangata fekau ki he fale ʻo Tevita, ke lamasi ia, pea kenau tāmateʻi ia ʻi he pongipongi: pea naʻe tala ʻe Mikale ko e ʻunoho ʻo Tevita kiate ia, ʻo pehē, “Kapau ʻe ʻikai te ke fakahaofi hoʻo moʻui he poōni, ʻe tāmateʻi koe ʻapongipongi.”
12 ¶ Ko ia naʻe tukutuku hifo ai ʻe Mikale ʻa Tevita mei he matapā sioʻata: pea naʻe ʻalu ia, pea hola ʻo hao. 13 Pea naʻe toʻo ʻe Mikale ʻae meʻa fakatātā ʻo tuku ia ki he mohenga, pea ne ʻai ʻae ʻolunga ko e fulufuluʻi kosi ke ʻolunga ʻaki, ʻo ne ʻufiʻufi ʻaki ia ʻae kafu. 14 Pea ʻi he fekau ʻa Saula ʻae kau talafekau ke puke ʻa Tevita, naʻe pehē ʻe ia, ʻOku mahaki ia. 15 Pea naʻe toe fekau ʻe Saula ʻae kau talafekau kenau mamata kia Tevita, ʻo pehē, “Mou ʻomi ia kiate au ʻi hono mohenga, koeʻuhi ke u tāmateʻi ia.” 16 Pea ʻi he hū ki loto ʻae kau tangata talafekau, vakai, naʻe ʻi he mohenga ʻae meʻa fakatātā mo e ʻolunga kuo ngaohi ʻaki ʻae fulufuluʻi kosi. 17 Pea naʻe pehē ʻe Saula kia Mikale, “Ko e hā kuo ke kākā pehē ai au, mo ke fekau ki hoku fili ke ʻalu, pea kuo ne hao?” Pea pehē ʻe Mikale kia Saula, naʻe pehē mai ʻe ia, Tuku ke u ʻalu; he ko e hā te u tāmateʻi ai koe?”
18 ¶ Ko ia naʻe hola pea hao ʻa Tevita, ʻo ne ʻalu kia Samuela ki Lama, ʻo ne tala kiate ia ʻaia kotoa pē kuo fai ʻe Saula kiate ia. Pea naʻa na ō mo Samuela ʻo nofo ʻi Naoti. 19 Pea naʻe tala kia Saula, ʻo pehē, Vakai, ʻoku ʻi Naoti ʻa Tevita ʻi Lama. 20 Pea naʻe fekau ʻe Saula ʻae kau tangata ke puke ʻa Tevita: pea ʻi heʻenau mamata ki he kau palōfita ʻoku malanga, kae tuʻu ʻa Samuela ʻaia ko honau tauhi, naʻe hoko ʻae laumālie ʻoe ʻOtua ki he kau tangata fekau ʻa Saula, pea malanga foki mo kinautolu. 21 Pea ʻi he fakahā ia kia Saula, naʻa ne fekau atu ʻae kau tangata kehe, pea naʻe malanga ʻakinautolu foki. Pea naʻe ʻave ʻe Saula ʻae kau tangata fekau ho hono liunga tolu, pea naʻa nau malanga foki. 22 Pea naʻe toki ʻalu ia foki ki Lama pea hoko atu ki he fuʻu luo vai ʻaia ʻoku ʻi Sikiu: pea naʻe fehuʻi ʻe ia ʻo pehē, “ʻOku ʻi fē ʻa Samuela mo Tevita?” Pea pehē ʻe he tokotaha, Vakai, ʻoku na ʻi Naoti ʻi Lama. 23 Pea ne ʻalu ki ai ki Naoti ʻi Lama: pea hoko kiate ia foki ʻae Laumālie ʻoe ʻOtua, pea naʻe ʻalu pe ia, ʻo malanga, ʻo feʻunga mo ʻene hoko ki Naoti ʻi Lama. 24 Pea naʻa ne toʻo foki hono ngaahi kofu, ʻo malanga pehē pē ʻi he ʻao ʻo Samuela, pea naʻe tokoto hifo taʻekofu ia ʻi he ʻaho kotoa ko ia mo e pō kotoa ko ia. Ko e tupunga ia ʻoe pehē, “He kuo kau ʻa Saula foki mo e kau palōfita?”
