1 Ko e kamata pule lelei ʻa ʻAmasia. 3 ʻOku fai ʻe ia ʻae totongi ki he kau fakapō. 5 Ko e totongi ʻe ia ʻae tau ʻoe kakai ʻIsileli ke tauʻi ʻae kakai ʻItomi, pea ʻi he fekau ʻae palōfita ʻoku ne liʻaki ʻae taleniti ʻe teau, pea tukuange ʻakinautolu ke ʻalu. 11 Naʻa ne ikuʻi ʻae kakai ʻItomi. 10 Ko e ʻita ʻae kakai ʻIsileli ʻi honau tukuange, mo ʻenau fai ʻae maumau ʻi heʻenau liu ki honau fonua. 14 Ko e vikiʻia ʻa ʻAmasia ʻi heʻene ikuna, pea tauhi ia ki he ngaahi ʻotua ʻo ʻItomi, pea taʻetokanga ia ki he ngaahi valoki ʻae palōfita. 17 Naʻa ne fakaʻita kia Soasi ke kovi ai ia. 25 Ko ʻene pule. 27 Ko e tāmateʻi tuʻungaʻa pe ia.
Naʻe uofulu taʻu mo e taʻu ʻe nima ʻae motuʻa ʻo ʻAmasia, ʻi heʻene kamata pule, pea naʻe pule ia ʻi he taʻu ʻe uofulu ma nima ʻi Selūsalema. Pea ko e hingoa ʻo ʻene faʻē ko Sihoatani ʻo Selūsalema. Pea naʻe fai lelei ʻe ia ʻi he ʻao ʻo Sihova, ka naʻe ʻikai ʻi he loto haohaoa.
¶ Pea naʻe hoko ʻo pehē, ʻi he hoko ʻo tuʻumaʻu ʻae puleʻanga kiate ia, naʻa ne tāmateʻi ʻene kau tamaioʻeiki ʻaia naʻe lapasi ʻae tuʻi ko ʻene tamai. Ka naʻe ʻikai te ne tāmateʻi ʻenau ngaahi fānau, ka naʻe fai ʻe ia ʻo hangē ko ia kuo tohi ʻi he fono ʻi he tohi ʻa Mōsese, ʻaia naʻe fekau ai ʻe Sihova, ʻo pehē, ʻE ʻikai mate ʻae ngaahi tamai koeʻuhi ko e fānau, pea ʻe ʻikai mate ʻae fānau maʻae mātuʻa, ka ʻe mate ʻae tangata taki taha koeʻuhi ko ʻene angahala ʻaʻana.
¶ Pea naʻe fakakātoa ʻe ʻAmasia ʻa Siuta kotoa pē, ʻo ne fakanofo kiate kinautolu ʻae ngaahi ʻeiki pule ki he ngaahi toko afe, mo e ngaahi ʻeiki pule ki he ngaahi toko teau, ʻo fakatatau ki he ngaahi fale ʻo ʻenau ngaahi tamai, ʻi Siuta kotoa pē mo Penisimani: pea naʻa ne lau ʻakinautolu mei he taʻu ʻe uofulu ʻo fai hake, ʻo ne ʻilo ʻakinautolu ko e toko tolu kilu naʻe lelei, pea mālohi ke ʻalu atu ke tau, pea maheni ai ʻi he ala ki he tao mo e pā. Pea naʻa ne totongi ʻae kau tangata ʻe tokotaha kilu mei ʻIsileli ʻaki ʻae taleniti siliva ʻe teau, ko e kau mālohi mo toʻa. Ka naʻe haʻu kiate ia ha tangata ʻae ʻOtua, ʻo ne pehē, “ʻE tuʻi, ʻoua naʻa tuku ke ʻalu mo koe ʻae kautau ʻa ʻIsileli: he ʻoku ʻikai kau mo ʻIsileli ʻa Sihova, ko e fānau kotoa pē ʻa ʻIfalemi. Pea kapau te ke ʻalu koe, fai pe, ke ke mālohi koe ki he tau: ʻe fakahinga koe ʻe he ʻOtua ʻi he ʻao ʻoe fili: he ʻoku ʻi he ʻOtua ʻae mālohi ke tokoni, pea ke lī ki lalo.” Pea naʻe pehē ʻe ʻAmasia ki he tangata ʻae ʻOtua, “Ka ko e hā te mau fai koeʻuhi ko e taleniti ʻe teau ʻaia kuo u tuku ki he tau ʻa ʻIsileli?” Pea naʻe pehēange ʻe he tangata ʻae ʻOtua kiate ia, “ʻOku faʻa fai ʻe Sihova ke foaki kiate koe ʻae meʻa lahi hake ʻaupito ʻi he meʻa ni.” 10 Pea naʻe toki vaeua ʻakinautolu ʻe ʻAmasia, ʻae tau naʻe haʻu kiate ia mei ʻIfalemi, ke nau toe ʻalu ki honau fonua: ko ia naʻe tupu ʻo lahi ai ʻenau ʻita ki Siuta, pea naʻa nau toe ʻalu ki honau ʻapi ʻi he ʻita lahi.
11 ¶ Pea naʻe fakamālohi ʻe ʻAmasia ia, pea taki atu ʻe ia hono kakai ki he toafa māsima, ʻo ne taaʻi ʻi he fānau ʻa Seia ʻae toko mano. 12 Pea ko e toko mano ʻe taha naʻe moʻui naʻe puke ʻe he fānau ʻa Siuta ʻo ʻave fakapōpula, pea naʻe ʻohake ʻakinautolu ki he tumutumu ʻoe makatuʻu, ʻo lī ʻakinautolu mei he tumutumu ʻoe maka ki lalo, ko ia naʻe lailai ai ʻakinautolu kotoa pē.
13 ¶ Ka ko e kau tangata tau ʻoe tau naʻe fekau ʻe ʻAmasia ke nau foki, ke ʻoua naʻa nau ʻalu mo ia ki he tau, naʻa nau teʻia ʻae ngaahi kolo ʻo Siuta, mei Samēlia ʻo aʻu atu ki Pete-Holoni, pea naʻe teʻia ʻae toko tolu afe ʻokinautolu, ʻo nau fetuku ʻae vete lahi.
14 ¶ Pea naʻe hoko ʻo pehē, hili ʻae liu mai ʻa ʻAmasia mei he tāmateʻi ʻae kakai ʻItomi, naʻa ne ʻomi ʻae ngaahi ʻotua ʻoe fānau ʻa Seia: pea ne fokotuʻu ʻakinautolu ke ne ʻotua aki, pea punou ia kiate kinautolu, ʻo ne tutu ʻae meʻa nanamu kiate kinautolu. 15 Ko ia naʻe tupu ai ʻae houhau ʻa Sihova kia ʻAmasia, pea naʻa ne fekau ʻae palōfita kiate ia, ʻaia naʻe pehē kiate ia, “Ko e hā kuo ke kumi ai ki he ngaahi ʻotua ʻoe kakai, ʻaia naʻe ʻikai te nau mafai ke fakamoʻui honau kakai ʻonautolu mei ho nima?” 16 Pea ʻiloange lolotonga ʻa ʻene kei lea kiate ia, naʻe pehē ʻe he tuʻi kiate ia, “He kuo fakakau koe ki he kau fakakaukau ʻae tuʻi?” “Tuku muʻa: he koeʻumaʻā ʻae taaʻi koe?” Pea naʻe tuku ai ʻae palōfita, ʻo ne pehē, “ʻOku ou ʻilo kuo tuʻutuʻuni ʻe he ʻOtua ke taaʻi koe, ko e meʻa ʻi hoʻo fai ʻae meʻa ni, pea naʻe ʻikai te ke tokanga ki heʻeku akonaki.”
17 ¶ Pea naʻe toki kumi ʻae fakakaukau ʻe ʻAmasia ko e tuʻi ʻo Siuta, pea ne fekau atu kia Soasi, ko e foha ʻo Sihoaasi, ko e foha ʻo Sehu ko e tuʻi ʻo ʻIsileli, ʻo pehē, “Haʻu ke tā fesiofaki pe ʻakitaua.” 18 Pea naʻe fekau ʻe Soasi ko e tuʻi ʻo ʻIsileli kia ʻAmasia ko e tuʻi ʻo Siuta, ʻo pehē, “Ko e talatalaʻāmoa naʻe ʻi Lepanoni naʻe fekau ki he sita naʻe ʻi Lepanoni, ʻo pehē, ‘Foaki mai ho ʻofefine ki hoku foha ke na fakamaʻu:’ pea naʻe ʻalu ai ʻae manu kai vao naʻe ʻi Lepanoni, pea malaki hifo ʻae talatalaʻāmoa. 19 ‌ʻOku ke lau, Vakai, kuo ke teʻia ʻae kakai ʻItomi: pea kuo fakahikihiki koe ʻe ho loto ke vikiviki: ka ke nofo koe eni ki ʻapi: koeʻumaʻā hoʻo kau ke ke kovi ai, ke ke hinga ai, ʻio, ʻa koe, mo Siuta foki mo koe?” 20 Ka naʻe ʻikai tokanga ʻe ʻAmasia ki ai he naʻe mei he ʻOtua ia, koeʻuhi ke ne tukuange ia ki he nima ʻo honau ngaahi fili, ko e meʻa ʻi heʻenau kumi ki he ngaahi ʻotua ʻo ʻItomi. 21 Ko ia naʻe ʻalu hake ai ʻa Soasi ko e tuʻi ʻo ʻIsileli: pea na fesiofaki ʻakinaua, ʻio, ʻaia mo ʻAmasia ko e tuʻi ʻo Siuta, ʻi Pete-Semesi, ʻaia ʻoku kau ki Siuta. 22 Pea naʻe fakatuʻutāmaki ʻa Siuta ʻi he ʻao ʻo ʻIsileli, pea naʻa nau hola taki taha ʻae tangata ki hono fale fehikitaki. 23 Pea naʻe puke ʻe Soasi ko e tuʻi ʻo ʻIsileli ʻa ʻAmasia ko e tuʻi ʻo Siuta, ko e foha ʻo Soasi, ko e foha ʻo Sihoaasi, ʻi Pete-Semesi, ʻo ne ʻomi ia ki Selūsalema, pea naʻa ne holoki hifo ʻae ʻā maka ʻo Selūsalema mei he matapā ʻo ʻIfalemi ki he matapā ʻi he tuliki ʻā, ko e hanga ʻe valungeau. 24 Pea naʻa ne ʻave ʻae koula kotoa pē mo e siliva, mo e ngaahi ipu kotoa pē naʻe ʻilo ʻi he fale ʻoe ʻOtua ia ʻOpeti-ʻItomi, pea mo e ngaahi koloa ʻi he fale ʻoe tuʻi, mo e kau fakamoʻoni foki, pea tafoki ia ʻo ʻalu ki Samēlia.
25 ¶ Pea naʻe moʻui ʻa ʻAmasia ko e foha ʻo Soasi ko e tuʻi ʻo Siuta hili ʻae pekia ʻa Soasi ko e foha ʻo Sihoaasi ko e tuʻi ʻo ʻIsileli ʻi he taʻu ʻe hongofulu ma nima. 26 Pea ko hono toe ʻoe ngāue ʻa ʻAmasia, ko e ʻuluaki mo e ki mui, vakai, ʻikai kuo tohi ia ʻi he tohi ʻoe ngaahi tuʻi ʻo Siuta mo ʻIsileli?
27 ¶ Pea hili ʻae kuonga naʻe tafoki ai ʻa ʻAmasia mei he muimui ʻia Sihova naʻa nau teu lapa kiate ia ʻi Selūsalema: pea naʻe hola ia ki Lakisi: ka naʻa nau fekau ʻo tuli ia ki Lakisi, pea naʻe tāmateʻi ia ʻi ai. 28 Pea naʻa nau fakaheka ia ki he fanga hoosi, pea nau tanu ia mo ʻene ngaahi tamai ʻi he kolo ʻo Siuta.
