‌ʻI HE hili ʻae pekia ʻa ʻEhapi, naʻe angatuʻu ʻa Moape ki ʻIsileli. Pea naʻe tō hifo ʻa ʻAhasia mei he kātupa ʻi hono potu fale ki ʻolunga ʻaia naʻe ʻi Samēlia, pea ne mahakiʻia ai: pea naʻa ne kouna atu ha kau talafekau, ʻo ne pehē kiate kinautolu, “Mou ʻalu ʻo fakafehuʻi kia Peali-Sepupi ko e ʻotua ʻo Ekiloni, pea te u moʻui mei he mahaki ni pe ʻikai.” Ka naʻe pehē ʻe he ʻāngelo ʻo Sihova kia ʻIlaisiā ko e tangata Tisipa, “Tuʻu hake, mo ke ʻalu hake ke fetaulaki mo e kau talafekau ʻoe tuʻi ʻo Samēlia, pea ke pehē kiate kinautolu, ‘ʻOku ʻikai ha ʻOtua ʻi ʻIsileli, ʻoku mou ʻalu ai ke fehuʻi kia Peali-Sepupi ko e ʻotua ʻo Ekiloni?’ Ko ia foki ʻoku pehē ai ʻe Sihova, ‘ʻE ʻikai te ke ʻalu hifo mei he mohenga kuo ke ʻalu hake ki ai, ka te ke mate moʻoni.’|” Pea naʻe ʻalu ʻa ʻIlaisiā.
¶ Pea ʻi he liliu atu kiate ia ʻae kau talafekau, naʻa ne pehē kiate kinautolu, “Ko e hā eni kuo mou foki ai?” Pea naʻa nau pehē kiate ia, “Naʻe ai ha tangata naʻe fakafetaulaki mai kiate kimautolu pea naʻa ne pehē kiate kimautolu, ‘Mou ʻalu, ʻo toe foki atu ki he tuʻi ʻaia naʻa ne fekauʻi kimoutolu, pea tala kiate ia, ʻOku pehē ʻe Sihova, ʻOku ʻikai ʻapē ha ʻOtua ʻi ʻIsileli kuo ke fekau ai ke fehuʻi kia Peali-Sepupi ko e ʻotua ʻo Ekiloni? Ko ia ʻe ʻikai te ke ʻalu hifo mei he mohenga kuo ke ʻalu hake ki ai, ka te ke mate moʻoni.’|” Pea naʻa ne pehē kiate kinautolu, “Naʻe matamata fēfē ʻae tangata ʻaia naʻa ne fakafetaulaki mai kiate kimoutolu, mo ne leaʻaki ʻae ngaahi lea ni kiate kimoutolu?” Pea naʻa nau pehēange, “Ko e tangata fulufulu ia, pea naʻe nonoʻo ʻaki ʻae noʻotanga kiliʻi manu ʻi hono kongaloto.” Pea naʻe pehē ʻe ia, “Tā ko ʻIlaisiā ko e tangata Tisipa.” Pea naʻe toki fekau atu kiate ia ʻe he tuʻi ha ʻeiki naʻe pule ki he toko nimangofulu mo ʻene toko nimangofulu. Pea naʻa ne ʻalu hake kiate ia: pea vakai, naʻa ne nofo ʻi he tumutumu ʻo ha moʻunga. Pea naʻa ne pehē kiate ia, “ʻA koe ko e tangata ʻoe ʻOtua, kuo pehē ʻe he tuʻi, ‘Ke ke ʻalu hifo.’|” 10 Pea naʻe tali ʻe ʻIlaisiā ʻo pehēange ki he ʻeiki ʻoe toko nimangofulu, “Kapau ko e tangata ʻoe ʻOtua au, tuku ke tō hifo ha afi mei he langi, ke ʻauha ai koe mo hoʻo toko nimangofulu.” Pea naʻe tō hifo ʻae afi mei he langi, pea ne fakaʻauha ia pea mo ʻene toko nimangofulu. 11 Pea naʻa ne toe fekau atu kiate ia ha ʻeiki kehe ʻe tokotaha mo ʻene toko nimangofulu, Pea naʻa ne pehēange kiate ia, “ʻE tangata ʻoe ʻOtua, kuo pehē mai ʻe he tuʻi, ‘Ke ke ʻalu hifo ke vave.’|” 12 Pea naʻe tali ʻe ʻIlaisiā ʻo pehēange kiate kinautolu, “Kapau ko e tangata ʻoe ʻOtua au, tuku ke tō hifo ha afi mei he langi, ke ʻauha ai koe mo hoʻo toko nimangofulu.” Pea naʻe tō hifo ʻae afi mei he ʻOtua mei he langi, pea ne fakaʻauha ia pea mo ʻene toko nimangofulu. 13 Pea naʻa ne toe fekau atu ha ʻeiki mo hono tolu ʻoe toko nimangofulu, ʻaia mo ʻene toko nimangofulu. Pea naʻe ʻalu hake ʻa hono toko tolu ʻoe ʻeiki naʻe pule ki he toko nimangofulu, pea naʻa ne hoko ange mo ne tō ʻo tūʻulutui ʻi he ʻao ʻo ʻIlaisiā, mo ne kole kiate ia, ʻo ne pehē ki ai, “ʻE tangata ʻoe ʻOtua, ʻoku ou kole kiate koe, tuku ke mahuʻinga ʻi ho ʻao ʻa ʻeku moʻui, pea mo e moʻui ʻa hoʻo kau tamaioʻeiki ni ʻe toko nimangofulu. 14 Vakai, naʻe ʻalu hifo mei he langi ʻae afi, pea vela ai ʻo ʻosi ʻae ongo ʻeiki ʻoe ngaahi muʻaki toko nimangofulu, pea mo ʻena toko nimangofulu: ko ia tuku eni ke mahuʻinga ʻa ʻeku moʻui ʻi ho ʻao.” 15 Pea naʻe pehē ʻe he ʻāngelo ʻo Sihova kia ʻIlaisiā, “Ke ke ʻalu hifo mo ia: ʻoua naʻa ke manavahē kiate ia.” Pea naʻa ne tuʻu hake, mo ne ʻalu hifo mo ia ki he tuʻi. 16 Pea naʻa ne pehē kiate ia, “ʻOku pehē ʻe Sihova, ‘Koeʻuhi kuo ke fekau atu ha kau talafekau ke fakafehuʻi kia Peali-Sepupi ko e ʻotua ʻo Ekiloni, ko e meʻa ʻapē ʻi he ʻikai ha ʻOtua ʻi ʻIsileli ke ke fakaongo ki heʻene folofola? Ko ia ʻe ʻikai ai te ke toe ʻalu hifo mei he mohenga na ʻaia kuo ke ʻalu hake ki ai, ka te ke mate moʻoni.’|”
17 ¶ Ko ia, naʻe mate ia ʻo fakatatau mo e folofola ʻa Sihova, ʻaia naʻe lea ʻaki ʻe ʻIlaisiā. Pea naʻe fetongi ia ʻi he pule ʻe Siholami, ʻi hono ua ʻoe taʻu ʻo Siholami ko e foha ʻo Sihosafate ko e tuʻi ʻo Siuta; koeʻuhi naʻe ʻikai hano foha. 18 Pea ko eni, ko e toe ʻoe ngaahi ngāue ʻa ʻAhasia ʻaia naʻa ne fai, ʻikai kuo tohi ia ʻi he tohi fakamatala ki he ngaahi tuʻi ʻo ʻIsileli?
