1 ʻOku ʻomi ʻae ongoongo ʻe he tangata ʻAmaleki ʻoe teʻia lahi ʻi he tau, ʻo ne loi ʻo pehē ko ia ia ne ne tāmateʻi ʻa Saula. 17 Ko e tēngihia ʻe Tevita ʻae pekia ʻa Saula mo Sonatane ʻi he hiva fakatangi.
PEA hili ʻae mate ʻa Saula, pea kuo liu mai ʻa Tevita mei heʻene taaʻi ʻae kakai ʻAmaleki, pea kuo hili ʻae ʻaho ʻe ua mo ʻene nofo ʻa Tevita ʻi Sikilaki; Pea ʻi he hoko ki hono tolu ʻoe ʻaho, vakai, naʻe haʻu ha tangata mei he tau ʻa Saula, kuo mahaehae hono kofu, pea pani efu hono ʻulu, pea ʻi heʻene hoko atu kia Tevita, naʻa ne tō hifo ki he kelekele, mo ne fai fakaʻapaʻapa. Pea naʻe pehē ʻe Tevita kiate ia, “ʻOku ke haʻu mei fē?” Pea naʻa ne pehē kiate ia, “Kuo u hao mei he nofoʻanga tau ʻo ʻIsileli.” Pea naʻe pehē ʻe Tevita kiate ia, “Ko e hā ha meʻa naʻe fai? ʻOku ou kole ke ke fakahā mai kiate au.” Pea naʻe pehēange ʻe ia, “Kuo hola ʻae kakai mei he tau, pea kuo tō ʻae kakai tokolahi ʻo mate; pea kuo pekia ʻa Saula mo Sonatane ko hono foha foki.” Pea naʻe pehē ʻe Tevita ki he tangata talavou naʻe lea mai, “Naʻe fēfē hoʻo ʻilo ʻe koe kuo mate ʻa Saula pea mo Sonatane ko hono foha?” Pea naʻe pehē mai ʻe he tangata talavou naʻe tala ia kiate ia, “ʻIloange naʻaku hoko atu ki he moʻunga ko Kilipoa, pea vakai, naʻe faʻaki ʻa Saula ki hono tao; pea vakai naʻe tuli mālohi kiate ia ʻae ngaahi saliote mo e kau heka hoosi. Pea ʻi heʻene sio ki mui, naʻa ne mamata kiate au, ʻo ne ui kiate au. Pea naʻaku pehē ʻe au, ‘Ko au eni.’ Pea naʻa ne pehē mai kiate au, ‘Ko hai koe?’ Pea naʻaku pehē kiate ia, ‘Ko e tangata ʻAmaleki au.’ Pea naʻa ne toe pehē mai kiate au, ‘ʻOku ou kole kiate koe, ke ke tuʻu hake kiate au ʻo tāmateʻi au: he ʻoku ou mamahi ʻaupito, koeʻuhi ʻoku kei mālohi ʻeku moʻui ʻiate au.’ 10 Ko ia ne u tuʻu ki ai, ʻo tāmateʻi ia, koeʻuhi naʻaku ʻilo pau ʻe ʻikai te ne toe moʻui mei heʻene tō ki lalo ʻaupito: pea naʻaku toʻo ʻae tatā fakatuʻi mei hono ʻulu, mo e vesa mei hono nima, pea kuo u ʻomi ia ki heni ki hoku ʻeiki. 11 Ka naʻe toki puke ʻe Tevita ki hono ngaahi kofu ʻo ne haehae ia; pea naʻe fai pehē foki ʻae kau tangata kotoa pē naʻe ʻiate ia: 12 Pea naʻa nau mamahi mo tangi, mo ʻaukai ʻo aʻu ki he poʻuli, koeʻuhi ko Saula, pea mo Sonatane ko hono foha, pea koeʻuhi ko e kakai ʻa Sihova, pea mo e fale kotoa ʻo ʻIsileli; koeʻuhi ko e tō hifo ʻakinautolu ʻi he heletā.
13 ¶ Pea naʻe pehē ʻe Tevita ki he tangata talavou naʻe ʻomi ʻae ongoongo, “ʻOku ke mei fē koe?” Pea naʻa ne pehēange, “Ko e foha au ʻoe muli, ko e ʻAmaleki.” 14 Pea naʻe pehē ʻe Tevita kiate ia, “Ko e hā ia naʻe ʻikai te ke manavahē ai ke ala atu ho nima ke tāmateʻi ʻaia naʻe fakatapui ʻe Sihova?” 15 Pea naʻe fekau atu ʻe Tevita ki ha taha ʻoe kau talavou, ʻo ne pehē, “ʻUnuʻunu atu ʻo taaʻi ia.” Pea naʻa ne taaʻi ia ke ne mate. 16 Pea naʻe pehē ʻe Tevita kiate ia, “Ke ʻi ho ʻulu pe ʻoʻou ho toto; he kuo fakamoʻoni ʻe ho ngutu kiate koe, ʻo pehē, kuo u tāmateʻi ʻaia naʻe fakatapui ʻe Sihova.” 17 Pea naʻe tēngihia ʻe Tevita ʻa Saula, pea mo hono foha ko Sonatane, ʻi he tangilāulau ko eni: 18 (Naʻa ne fekau foki ke nau akoʻi ʻae fānau ʻa Siuta ke ngāueʻaki ʻae kaufana: vakai kuo tohi ia ʻi he tohi ʻa Sesa.) 19 “Kuo tāmateʻi ʻae toulekeleka, ʻo ʻIsileli ʻi hoʻo ngaahi potu māʻolunga:
ʻOiauē, kuo hinga ʻae kau tangata mālohi! 20 ‌ʻOua naʻa tala ia ʻi Kati,
ʻoua naʻa fakahā ia ʻi he ngaahi hala ʻo ʻAsikeloni;
telia naʻa fiefia ai ʻae ngaahi ʻofefine ʻoe kakai Filisitia,
pea telia naʻa polepole ai ʻae ngaahi ʻofefine ʻokinautolu ʻoku taʻekamu.
21 ‌ʻAe ngaahi moʻunga ʻo Kilipoa,
ke ʻoua naʻa ai ha hahau, pe ha ʻuha ʻe tō hifo kiate koe,
pe ʻiate koe ha ngoueʻanga ʻoe feilaulau:
koeʻuhi kuo liʻaki kovi ʻi ai ʻae pā ʻoe mālohi, ʻae pā ʻo Saula,
ʻo hangē pe naʻe ʻikai ke fakatapui ia ʻaki ʻae lolo.
22 Naʻe ʻikai foki mai ʻae kaufana ʻo Sonatane,
mei he toto ʻokinautolu naʻe tāmateʻi,

pea naʻe ʻikai foki noa mai ʻae heletā ʻa Saula.
23 Naʻe toulekeleka, mo lelei ʻa Saula mo Sonatane ʻi heʻena moʻui,
pea naʻe ʻikai māvae ʻakinaua ʻi heʻena mate:
naʻa na veʻe vave hake ʻi he fanga ʻikale,
naʻa na mālohi lahi hake ʻi he fanga laione.
24 ‌ʻAe ngaahi ʻofefine ʻo ʻIsileli, mou tēngihia ʻa Saula,
ʻaia naʻa ne fakakofuʻi ʻakimoutolu ʻi he kulaʻahoʻaho, mo e meʻa ʻoe manako,
ʻaia naʻa ne ʻai ki hoʻomou kofu ʻae teunga ʻoe koula.
25 ‌ʻOiauē, ʻae hinga ki lalo ʻae kau mālohi ʻi he lotolotonga ʻoe tau!
ʻE Sonatane naʻe tāmateʻi koe ʻi he ngaahi potu māʻolunga ʻoʻou.
26 Kuo u mamahi koeʻuhi ko koe, ʻe hoku kāinga ko Sonatane:
naʻa ke lelei fau kiate au:
naʻe fakamanavahē hoʻo ʻofa kiate au,
ʻo lahi hake ʻi he ʻofa ʻae kau fefine.
27 ‌ʻOiauē, he kuo tō ki lalo ʻae kau mālohi,
kuo fakaʻauha ʻae ngaahi mahafu ʻoe tau!”
