Pea ko au Paula, ko au ʻoku matamatavaivai ʻo kau ka ʻiate kimoutolu, ka ʻi heʻeku mamaʻo ʻoku ou loto mālohi kiate kimoutolu, ʻoku ou fakakolekole kiate kimoutolu ʻi he angavaivai mo e angamalū ʻa Kalaisi: Ka ʻoku ou kole, koeʻuhi ke ʻoua naʻaku loto mālohi ʻi heʻeku ʻiate kimoutolu, ʻi he pule ko ia ʻoku ou ʻamanaki ke u fai mālohi ai ki he niʻihi, ʻoku nau lau kiate kimautolu ʻo hangē ʻoku mau ʻaʻeva ʻo fakatatau mo e kakano. He neongo ʻoku mau ʻaʻeva ʻi he kakano, ka ʻoku ʻikai te mau tau fakakakano: (He ko e mahafutau ʻo ʻemau tau ʻoku ʻikai fakakakano, ka ʻoku mālohi lahi ʻi he ʻOtua ke holoki hifo ai ʻae ngaahi kolo mālohi;) ‌ʻO holoki ki lalo ʻae ngaahi fakakaukau, mo e meʻa māʻolunga kotoa pē, ʻoku ne fakahikihiki ia ki he ʻilo ʻoe ʻOtua, pea ʻoku ne fakavaivai ʻae mahalo kotoa pē ki he talangofua kia Kalaisi; Pea ʻoku mau tali te u pe ke tautea ʻae talangataʻa kotoa pē, ʻoka kakato hoʻomou talangofua. He ʻoku mou vakai ki he ngaahi meʻa ʻo hangē ko hono hā mai ʻituʻa? Kapau ʻoku ai ha tangata ʻoku ne faʻaki kiate ia ʻoku ʻa Kalaisi ia, ke toe fifili ki he meʻa ko ia ʻiate ia, koeʻuhi ʻo hangē ʻoku ʻa Kalaisi ia, ʻoku ʻa Kalaisi pehē pe ʻakimautolu. He ka ne lahi hake siʻi ʻeku polepole ʻi heʻemau mālohi, ʻaia kuo tuku mai ʻe he ʻEiki kiate kimautolu ke langa ʻaki hake, ka ʻoku ʻikai ko homou fakaʻauha, pehē, ʻe ʻikai te u mā ai: Ka ʻoku ʻikai te u fie hangē kau ka fakamanaʻi ʻakimoutolu ʻaki ʻae ngaahi tohi. 10 He ʻoku nau pehē, “Ko ʻene ngaahi tohi ʻoku mamafa mo mālohi; ka ʻoku ha vaivai mai hono sino, pea ko ʻene lea ʻoku kovi.” 11 Ke ʻilo ʻe he tokotaha ko ia, ko ia ʻoku hā ʻiate kimautolu ʻi he lea ʻi he ngaahi tohi ʻi heʻemau mamaʻo, ko kimautolu ai pe ia ʻi he ngāue ʻoka mau ka ʻi ai. 12 He ʻoku ʻikai te mau faʻa fakakau ʻakimautolu, pe fakatatau ʻakimautolu, ki he niʻihi ʻoku fakaongolelei atu ʻakinautolu: ka ko ʻenau fuofua ʻakinautolu ʻaki ʻakinautolu, ʻo fakatatau ʻakinautolu kiate kinautolu, ko e fai vale ia. 13 Ka ʻe ʻikai te mau polepole ki he ngaahi meʻa ʻituʻa atu ʻi homau lakanga, kae fakatatau ki hono fuofua ʻoe lakanga ʻaia kuo fuofua ʻe he ʻOtua kiate kimautolu, ko e fuofua ʻoku aʻu atu foki kiate kimoutolu. 14 He ʻoku ʻikai te mau mafao atu ʻakimautolu, ʻo hangē naʻe ʻikai ke mau aʻu atu kiate kimoutolu: he kuo mau aʻu atu kiate kimoutolu foki ʻi he ongoongolelei ʻo Kalaisi: 15 ‌ʻOku ʻikai te mau faʻa polepole ki he ngaahi meʻa ʻituʻa ʻi homau lakanga, ʻaia ko e ngaahi ngāue ʻae kau tangata kehe; ka ʻoku mau ʻamanaki lelei, ʻoka fakalahi hoʻomou tui, ke mau mafola atu ʻaupito ʻiate kimoutolu kae ʻi homau lakanga pe, 16 Ke mau malangaʻaki ʻae ongoongolelei ki he mamaʻo atu ʻiate kimoutolu, pea ʻikai ke polepole ʻi he lakanga ngāue ʻae tangata kehe kuo ʻosi teuteu. 17 “Ka ko ia ʻoku polepole, ke polepole ia ʻi he ʻEiki.” 18 He ʻoku ʻikai ko ia ʻoku ne fakaongolelei ia ʻe fakamālō ki ai, ka ko ia ʻoku fakaongolelei ia ʻe he ʻEiki.
