1 ʻOku ne fai pe ʻene akonaki ke nau moʻui māʻoniʻoni, 2 Pea ke nau ʻofa kiate ia ʻo hangē pe ko ʻene ʻofa kiate kinautolu. 3 Pea telia naʻa hangē ʻoku ʻikai ke ne tui ki heʻenau ʻofa, ʻoku ne fakahā ʻae fiemālie lahi naʻa ne maʻu ʻi heʻene ngaahi mamahi, ko e meʻa ʻi he ongoongolelei naʻe ʻalu mo Taitusi, ko e fakahā ʻo ʻenau mamahi ʻo taau mo e ʻOtua ʻaia naʻe tupu mei he ʻuluaki tohi ʻa Paula kiate kinautolu, 13 Pea mo e nau ʻofa ongongofua mo e talangofua kia Taitusi, ʻo fakatatau ki heʻene tomuʻa vikiviki ʻiate kinautolu.
Ko ia, ʻe kāinga ʻofeina, ʻi heʻetau maʻu ʻae ngaahi talaʻofa ni, ke tau fakamaʻa ʻakitautolu mei he ʻuli kotoa pē ʻoe kakano mo e laumālie, ʻo fakahaohaoa ʻae māʻoniʻoni ʻi he manavahē ki he ʻOtua. Mou maʻu ʻakimautolu; naʻe ʻikai te mau fai taʻetotonu ki ha tokotaha, naʻe ʻikai te mau fakaangahalaʻi ha tokotaha, naʻe ʻikai te mau kākaaʻi ha tokotaha. ‌ʻOku ʻikai te u lea ko ha tautea: he kuo ʻosi ʻeku tala atu, ʻoku mou ʻi homau loto ke mau mate mo moʻui mo kimoutolu. ‌ʻOku lahi ʻeku faʻa lea atu kiate kimoutolu, ʻoku ou vikiviki lahi koeʻuhi ko kimoutolu: kuo fakafonu au ʻi he fiemālie, ʻoku ou fiefia lahi ʻaupito ʻi heʻemau mamahi kotoa pē. Koeʻuhi ʻi heʻemau hoko ki Masitōnia, naʻe ʻikai ha mālōlō ki homau kakano, ka naʻe fakamamahi ʻakimautolu mei he potu kotoa pē; naʻe ʻituʻa ʻae ngaahi tau, pea ʻi loto ʻae manavahē. Ka ko e ʻOtua, ʻoku ne fakafiemālieʻi ʻakinautolu kuo lī ki lalo, naʻa ne fakafiemālieʻi ʻakimautolu, ʻi he haʻu ʻa Taitusi; Pea naʻe ʻikai ʻi heʻene haʻu pe, ka ʻi he fakafiemālie ʻaia naʻe fakafiemālie ai ia ʻiate kimoutolu, ʻi heʻene tala kiate kimautolu hoʻomou holi lahi, mo hoʻomou mamahi, mo hoʻomou feinga kiate au; ko ia naʻe ʻāsili ai ʻeku fiefia. He ʻoku ʻikai te u fakatomala ʻi heʻeku fakamamahi ʻakimoutolu ʻaki ʻae tohi, ka naʻaku fakatomala ai: he ʻoku ou vakai ko e tohi ko ia, kuo ne fakamamahi ʻakimoutolu, kae fuoloa siʻi pe. Ka ko eni, ʻoku ou fiefia, ʻoku ʻikai ʻi homou fakamamahi, ka ʻi homou mamahi ki he fakatomala: he naʻa mou mamahi ʻo tāau mo e ʻOtua, ke ʻoua naʻa mou masiva ʻi ha meʻa ʻe taha ʻiate kimautolu. 10 He ko e mamahi ʻoku taau mo e ʻOtua ʻoku ne langaki ʻae fakatomala ki he fakamoʻui, ʻe ʻikai toe fakatomala ai: ka ko e mamahi fakamaama, ʻoku ne langaki ʻae mate. 11 Vakai eni ki he meʻa ni pe, ʻa hoʻomou mamahi ʻo taau mo e ʻOtua, ki he faʻa fai naʻa ne fakatupu ʻiate kimoutolu, ʻio, ʻae fakaʻataʻatā ʻo kimoutolu, ʻae fakaʻiseʻisa, ʻae manavahē, ʻae holi lahi, ʻio, ʻae fai feinga, ʻa ʻetau tautea! Kuo mou fakahā ʻaki ia kotoa pē ʻa hoʻomou ʻataʻatā ʻi he meʻa ni. 12 Ko ia ne u tohi kiate kimoutolu, ka naʻe ʻikai koeʻuhi ko ia pe naʻe fai ʻae kovi, pe ko ia pe naʻa ne mamahi ʻi he kovi, ka koeʻuhi ke hā ai kiate kimoutolu ʻemau tokanga kiate kimoutolu ʻi he ʻao ʻoe ʻOtua. 13 Ko ia naʻa mau fiemālie ʻi hoʻomou fiemālie: pea naʻe lahi hake ʻaupito ʻemau fiefia koeʻuhi ko e fiefia ʻa Taitusi, he naʻe fakafiemālieʻi hono laumālie ʻekimoutolu kotoa pē. 14 He kapau naʻaku polepole ʻi ha meʻa kiate ia koeʻuhi ko kimoutolu, ʻoku ʻikai te u mā ai; kae hangē ko ʻemau lea kimoutolu ʻi he meʻa kotoa pē, ʻoku pehē pe mo ʻemau polepole ʻi he ʻao ʻo Taitusi, ʻoku ʻilo ia ko e moʻoni. 15 Pea ko ʻene manavaʻofa ʻoku lahi hake ʻaupito kiate kimoutolu, ʻi heʻene manatu ki he talangofua ʻamoutolu kotoa pē, pea mo hoʻomou maʻu ia ʻi he manavahē mo e tetetete. 16 Pea ʻoku ou fiefia ʻi heʻeku falala kiate kimoutolu ʻi he meʻa kotoa pē.
