1 ʻOku kau ʻa Sihosafate mo ʻEhapi pea ʻoku fakaloto ia ke ʻalu mo ia ke tauʻi ʻa Lemoti-Kiliati. 4 Kuo fakahalaʻi ʻa ʻEhapi ʻe he kau kikite loi, pea ʻoku tāmateʻi ia ʻi ai, ʻo fakatatau ki he lea ʻa Mikaia.
Pea ko eni naʻe lahi ʻaupito ʻae koloa mo e nāunau ʻa Sihosafate, pea naʻe hoko ia ʻo kau taha mo ʻEhapi. Pea hili ʻae ngaahi taʻu naʻe ʻalu hifo ia kia ʻEhapi ki Samēlia. Pea naʻe tāmateʻi ʻe ʻEhapi ʻae fanga sipi mo e fanga pulu ʻo lahi ʻaupito, ko hono tali, pea maʻae kakai naʻe ʻiate ia, ʻo ne fakalotoʻi ia ke ʻalu hake mo ia ki Lemoti-Kiliati. Pea pehē ʻe ʻEhapi ko e tuʻi ʻo ʻIsileli kia Sihosafate ko e tuʻi ʻo Siuta, “Te ke fie ʻalu mo au ki Lemoti-Kiliati?” Pea naʻe pehē ʻe ia kiate ia, “ʻOku ou loto fakataha mo koe, pea ʻoku tatau hoku kakai mo hoʻo kakai: pea te mau ʻiate koe ʻi he tau.”
¶ Pea naʻe pehē ʻe Sihosafate ki he tuʻi ʻo ʻIsileli, “ʻOku ou kole kiate koe, ke ke fehuʻi ʻi he folofola ʻa Sihova he ʻaho ni.” Ko ia naʻe tānaki ʻo fakataha ai ʻe he tuʻi ʻo ʻIsileli mei he kau palōfita ʻae kau tangata ʻe toko fāngeau, ʻo ne pehē kiate kinautolu, “Te mau ʻalu ki Lemoti-Kiliati ki he tau, pe te u taʻofi?” Pea naʻa nau pehē, “ʻAlu hake: he koeʻuhi ʻe tuku mai ia ʻe he ʻOtua ki he nima ʻoe tuʻi.” Ka naʻe pehē ʻe Sihosafate, “ʻOku ʻikai ʻi heni ha palōfita ʻa Sihova ʻoku toe, koeʻuhi ke tau fehuʻi ai kiate ia?” Pea naʻe pehē ʻe he tuʻi ʻo ʻIsileli kia Sihosafate, “ʻOku kei toe ʻae tangata ʻe tokotaha, ʻaia ke tau fehuʻi ai kia Sihova: ka ʻoku ou fehiʻa kiate ia: he ʻoku ʻikai siʻi fakahā ʻe ia ha lelei kiate au, ka ko e kovi maʻuaipē: ko Mikaia ia ko e foha ʻo Imila.” Pea naʻe pehē ʻe Sihosafate, “Ke ʻoua naʻa lea pehē ʻe he tuʻi.” Pea naʻe ui ʻe he tuʻi ʻo ʻIsileli ki heʻene tangata talifekau, ʻo ne pehē, ʻAlu ʻo ʻomi ke vave ʻa Mikaia ko e foha ʻo Imila. Pea ko e tuʻi ʻo ʻIsileli, mo Sihosafate ko e tuʻi ʻo Siuta naʻa na nofo taki taha ʻi hono nofoʻa fakatuʻi kuo teunga ʻaki hona pulupulu, pea na nonofo ʻi he malaʻe ʻi he hūʻanga ki he matapā ʻo Samēlia: pea naʻe kikite ʻe he kau palōfita kotoa pē ʻi hona ʻao. 10 Pea naʻe ngaohi ʻe Setikia ko e foha ʻo Kinana ʻae ongo nifo ukamea maʻana, ʻo ne pehē, ʻOku pehē ʻe Sihova, “Te ke tekeʻi ʻa Silia ʻaki ʻae meʻa ni ʻo fai ai pe ke nau ʻauha.” 11 Pea naʻe kikite pehē pe ʻae kau palōfita kotoa pē, ʻo pehē, “ʻAlu hake ki Lemoti-Kiliati, pea ke monūʻia: koeʻuhi ʻe tuku mai ia ʻe Sihova ki he nima ʻoe tuʻi.” 12 Pea naʻe lea ʻae tangata fekau ʻaia naʻe ʻalu ke ui ʻa Mikaia, ʻo ne pehē kiate ia, “Vakai, ko e ngaahi lea ʻae kau palōfita ʻoku fakahā pe ʻae lelei ki he tuʻi: ko ia, ʻoku ou kole kiate koe, tuku ke pehē pe hoʻo lea, ke hangē ha taha ʻokinautolu, pea ke lea lelei koe.” 13 Pea naʻe pehē ʻe Mikaia, “ʻI he moʻui ʻa Sihova, ko ia ʻoku tala kiate au ʻe hoku ʻOtua, ko ia pe te u lea ʻaki.” 14 Pea ʻi heʻene hoko ia ki he tuʻi, naʻe pehē ʻe he tuʻi kiate ia, “Te mau ʻalu ki Lemoti-Kiliati ke tau, pe te u taʻofi?” Pea pehē ʻe ia, “Mou ʻalu hake, mo monūʻia, pea ʻe tuku mai ʻakinautolu kotoa pē ki homou nima.” 15 Pea pehē ʻe he tuʻi kiate ia, “ʻE liunga fiha ʻeku fakafuakavaʻi koe ke ʻoua naʻa ke lea ki ha meʻa ka ke tala ʻae moʻoni kiate au ʻi he huafa ʻo Sihova?” 16 Pea toki pehē ʻe ia, “Naʻaku mamata ki ʻIsileli kotoa pē naʻe movetevete ʻi he ngaahi moʻunga, ʻo hangē ko e fanga sipi ʻoku ʻikai hanau tauhi: pea pehē ʻe Sihova, ‘Ko kinautolu ni, ʻoku ʻikai hanau ʻeiki: ko ia, tuku ke nau liu mai taki taha ki hono fale ʻi he fiemālie.’ ” 17 Pea pehē ʻe he tuʻi ʻo ʻIsileli kia Sihosafate, “ʻIkai naʻaku tala kiate koe ʻe ʻikai te ne tala ha lelei kiate au, ka ko e kovi pe?” 18 Pea toe pehē ʻe ia, “Ko ia fanongo ki he folofola ʻa Sihova: Naʻaku mamata kia Sihova ʻoku nofo ʻi hono ʻafioʻanga, pea naʻe tuʻu ʻae kakai kotoa pē ʻoe langi ʻi hono nima toʻomataʻu mo hono toʻohema. 19 Pea naʻe pehē ʻe Sihova, ‘Ko hai ʻe faʻa fakalotoʻi ʻa ʻEhapi ko e tuʻi ʻo ʻIsileli, koeʻuhi ke ʻalu hake ia ʻo tō ʻi Lemoti-Kiliati? Pea naʻe lea ʻe he tokotaha ʻo pehē, ʻe pehē pe ia, pea lea ʻe he taha kehe ʻo pehē, ʻe pehē na ia. 20 Pea naʻe toki haʻu kituʻa ʻae laumālie ʻe taha, pea tuʻu ia ʻi he ʻao ʻo Sihova, ʻo ne pehē, ‘Te u fakalotoʻi ia.’ Pea pehē ʻe Sihova, ‘ʻAki ʻae hā?’ 21 Pea pehē ʻe ia, ‘Te u ʻalu atu, pea u hoko ko e laumālie loi ʻi he ngutu ʻo ʻene kau palōfita kotoa pē.’ Pea naʻe pehē ʻe Sihova, ‘Te ke faʻa fakalotoʻi ia, pea ke lavaʻi ia foki: ʻalu atu, pea ke fai ia.’ ” 22 Pea ko eni, “Vakai, kuo tuku ʻe Sihova ʻae laumālie loi ʻi he ngutu ʻo ho kau palōfita ni, pea kuo folofola ʻa Sihova ʻaki ʻae kovi kiate koe.” 23 Pea naʻe ʻunuʻunu ʻo ofi ʻa Setikia ko e foha ʻo Kinana, ʻo ne taaʻi ʻa Mikaia ʻi he kouʻahe, ʻo ne pehē, “Ko e fē ʻae hala naʻe fou ai ʻae Laumālie ʻo Sihova meiate au ke lea kiate koe?” 24 Pea naʻe pehē ʻe Mikaia, “Vakai, te ke mamata ʻi he ʻaho ko ia ʻaia te ke hū ai ki he loki ʻi loto ke fufū koe.” 25 Pea pehē ai ʻe he tuʻi ʻo ʻIsileli, “Mou puke ʻa Mikaia, pea toe ʻave ia kia ʻAmoni ko e pule ʻoe kolo, pea kia Soasi ko e foha ʻoe tuʻi: 26 pea ke pehē, ‘ʻOku pehē mai ʻae tuʻi, Fakahū ʻae siana ni ki he fale fakapōpula, pea fafanga ia ʻaki ʻae mā ʻoe mamahi mo e vai ʻoe mamahi, ʻo aʻu ki heʻeku liu mai ʻi he fiemālie.’ ” 27 Pea naʻe pehē ʻe Mikaia, “Kapau te ke liu mai moʻoni ʻi he fiemālie, pea tā naʻe ʻikai folofola ʻa Sihova ʻiate au. Pea naʻe pehē ʻe ia, ʻae kakai kotoa pē, mou tokanga.”
28 ¶ Ko ia, naʻe ʻalu hake ki Lemoti-Kiliati ʻae tuʻi ʻo ʻIsileli mo Sihosafate ko e tuʻi ʻo Siuta. 29 Pea pehē ʻe he tuʻi ʻo ʻIsileli kia Sihosafate, “Te u fakapuli au, pea u ʻalu ki he tau: ka ke ʻai ʻe koe ʻa ho ngaahi pulupulu teunga.” Ko ia naʻe fakapuli ia ʻe he tuʻi ʻo ʻIsileli; pea naʻa na ō ki he tau. 30 Pea ko eni naʻe ʻosi hono fekau ʻe he tuʻi ʻo Silia ki he ngaahi ʻeiki pule ʻo ʻene ngaahi saliote ʻaia naʻe ʻiate ia, ʻo pehē, “ʻOua naʻa mou tau ki he siʻi pe ki he lahi, ka ki he tuʻi pe ʻo ʻIsileli.” 31 Pea naʻe hoko ʻo pehē, ʻi he mamata ʻae kau ʻeiki pule ʻoe ngaahi saliote kia Sihosafate, naʻa nau pehē, “Ko e tuʻi ia ʻo ʻIsileli.” Ko ia naʻa nau tuʻu takatakai ʻiate ia ke tau: ka naʻe tangi kalanga ʻa Sihosafate, pea naʻe tokoni ia ʻe Sihova: pea naʻe fakalotoʻi ʻakinautolu ʻe he ʻOtua ke nau ʻalu ʻiate ia. 32 He naʻe hoko ʻo pehē, ʻi he mamata ʻe he houʻeiki pule ʻoe ngaahi saliote ʻo ʻilo ʻoku ʻikai ko e tuʻi ia ʻo ʻIsileli, naʻa nau foki ki mui mei he tuli kiate ia. 33 Pea ko e tangata ʻe taha naʻe teke ʻae kau fana ʻo fana noa pe, pea naʻe tau ia ki he tuʻi ʻo ʻIsileli ʻi he vahaʻa ʻoe hokoʻanga ʻoe kofu tau: ko ia naʻa ne pehē ai ki heʻene tangata saliote, “Tafoki ho nima, koeʻuhi ke ke ʻave au kituʻa mei he tau he kuo u lavea.” 34 Pea naʻe tupu mālohi ʻae tau ʻi he ʻaho ko ia: ka naʻe poupou hake ia ʻe he tuʻi ʻo ʻIsileli ʻi heʻene saliote ʻo tauʻi ʻae kakai Silia ʻo aʻu ki he efiafi, pea naʻe pekia ia ʻo feʻunga mo e ʻalu hifo ʻae laʻā.
