1 ʻOku fakatanga ʻe he tuʻi ko Helota ʻae kau Kalisitiane, ʻoku ne tāmateʻi ʻa Semisi, pea tuku ʻa Pita ki he fale fakapōpula; kae fakamoʻui ʻe ha ʻāngelo ʻi he ngaahi lotu ʻoe siasi. 22 ʻI he laukau ʻa Helota ʻoku ne maʻu maʻana ʻae fakaʻapaʻapa kuo taau pe mo e ʻOtua, ʻoku taaʻi ia ʻe ha ʻāngelo, pea mate kovi ʻaupito. 24 Hili ʻene mate, ʻoku tupulaki ʻae ngāue ʻae ʻOtua.
‌ʻI he kuonga ko ia, naʻe mafao ai ʻae nima ʻo Helota ko e tuʻi, ke fakamamahiʻi ʻae niʻihi ʻi he siasi. Pea ne tāmateʻi ʻa Semisi ko e tokoua ʻo Sione ʻaki ʻae heletā. Pea ʻi heʻene mamata ʻoku fiefia ai ʻae kakai Siu, naʻe fai ʻe ia ke ne puke foki ʻa Pita. (Pea naʻe feʻunga ia mo e ngaahi ʻaho ʻoe mā taʻemeʻafakatupu.) Pea kuo ne puke ia, pea ne fakahū ki he fale fakapōpula, ʻo tuku ki he vāhenga tau ʻe fā, naʻe taki toko fā, ke nau leʻohi ia; ʻo ne tokanga ke ʻomi ia kituaʻā, ki he kakai ʻoka hili ʻa e kātoanga ʻoe Lakaatu. Ko ia naʻe moʻua pe ʻa Pita ʻi he fale fakapōpula: ka naʻe hūfia fakamātoato ia ʻe he siasi ki he ʻOtua. Pea ʻi he tokanga ʻa Helota ke ʻomi ia kituaʻā, naʻe mohe ʻa Pita ʻi he pō ko ia ʻi he vahaʻa ʻoe ongo tangata tau, naʻe haʻi ʻaki ʻae ukamea fihifihi ʻe ua: pea ʻi he matapā ʻae kau leʻo, ʻo leʻohi ʻae fale fakapōpula. Pea vakai, kuo ʻiate ia ha ʻāngelo ʻae ʻEiki, pea malama ʻi he fale fakapōpula ʻae maama: pea ne taaʻi ʻa Pita ʻi he vakavaka, mo ne fokotuʻu ia, ʻo pehē, “Tuʻu ke vave.” Pea naʻe homo ʻae ukamea fihifihi ʻi hono nima. Pea pehē ʻe he ʻāngelo kiate ia, “Nonoʻo ho kofu, pea fakamaʻu mo ho topuvaʻe.” Pea ne fai ia. Pea ne pehē kiate ia, “ʻAi ho kofu, pea ke muimui kiate au. Pea naʻa ne ʻalu kituaʻā, ʻo muimui ʻiate ia; pea naʻe ʻikai te ne ʻilo pe ko e moʻoni ʻaia kuo fai ʻe he ʻāngelo; ka naʻe mahalo ʻe ia ko e meʻa hā mai ʻoku ne mamata ai. 10 Pea kuo na tuku ki mui ʻae ʻuluaki kau leʻo mo hono ua, pea na hoko ki he matapā ukamea, ʻoku ʻalu atu ai ki he kolo; pea matoʻo ia, ʻiate ia pe, kiate kinaua: pea naʻa na ō kituaʻā, ʻo na fononga ʻi he hala ʻe taha; pea fakafokifā pe kuo mole ʻiate ia ʻae ʻāngelo. 11 Pea kuo matala ʻae loto ʻo Pita, pea pehē ʻe ia, “ʻOku ou toki ʻilo pau ni, kuo fekau mai ʻe he ʻEiki ʻene ʻāngelo, pea kuo ne fakamoʻui au mei he nima ʻo Helota, mo e ʻamanaki kotoa pē ʻae kakai Siu.” 12 Pea ʻi heʻene kei fifili ki ai, mo ʻene hoko ki he fale ʻo Mele ko e faʻē ʻa Sione, ʻoku hingoa ko Maʻake; naʻe kātoa ai ʻae tokolahi ʻo lotu. 13 Pea ʻi he tukituki ʻa Pita ki he matapā ʻi tuaʻā, naʻe haʻu ʻae taʻahine ʻoku hingoa ko Lota, ʻo fakafanongo. 14 Pea ʻi heʻene ʻilo ʻae leʻo ʻo Pita, naʻe ʻikai te ne toʻo ʻae matapā, ko e meʻa ʻi he fiefia, ka ka lele ia ʻo tala ʻoku tuʻu ʻa Pita ʻi he matapā. 15 Pea nau pehē kiate ia, “ʻOku ke vale.” Ka naʻe fakapapau ia, Ko e moʻoni ko ia pē. Pea nau toki pehē, Ko ʻene ʻāngelo. 16 Ka naʻe kei tukituki pē ʻa Pita: pea ʻi heʻenau toʻo ʻo mamata kiate ia, naʻa nau ofo. 17 Ka naʻe taʻofi ʻaki ʻe ia hono nima ke nau fakalongo pē, pea ne fakamatala kiate kinautolu ʻa hono ʻomi ia ʻe he ʻEiki mei he fale fakapōpula. Pea ne pehē, “ʻAlu ʻo fakahā ʻae ngaahi meʻa ni kia Semisi, mo e kāinga.” Pea ʻalu ia mei ai, ʻo ʻalu ki ha potu kehe. 18 Pea kuo ʻaho hake, naʻe maveuveu lahi ʻae kau tau, pe kofaʻā ʻa Pita. 19 Pea ʻi he kumi ia ʻe Helota, mo ʻikai siʻi ʻilo ia, naʻa ne fakamaauʻi ʻae kau leʻo, pea fekau ʻe ia ke tāmateʻi ʻakinautolu. Pea naʻe ʻalu hifo ia mei Siutea ʻo nofo ki Sesalia.
20 ¶ Pea naʻe ʻita lahi ʻa Helota kiate kinautolu ʻi Taia mo Saitone: ka naʻa nau haʻu loto taha kiate ia, pea kuo nau kāinga ʻaki ʻa Palasito, ko e tauhi ʻoe potu mohe ʻoe tuʻi, ʻo kole ke nau fakalelei; koeʻuhi naʻe maʻu ʻe honau fonua ʻae meʻakai mei he fonua ʻoe tuʻi. 21 Pea ko e ʻaho naʻe kotofa, naʻe kofu fakatuʻi ai ʻa Helota, pea nofo ʻi hono nofoʻa fakatuʻi, pea fai ʻene lea kiate kinautolu. 22 Pea mavava ʻae kakai ʻo pehē, “Ko e leʻo ia ʻoe ʻotua, ka ʻoku ʻikai ʻoe tangata.” 23 Pea taaʻi leva ia ʻe ha ʻāngelo ʻae ʻEiki, koeʻuhi naʻe ʻikai te ne tuku ʻae fakaʻapaʻapa ki he ʻOtua: pea naʻe kai ia ʻe he ʻuanga, pea mate ia.
24 ¶ Ka naʻe tupu pea mafola atu ʻo lahi ʻae folofola ʻoe ʻOtua. 25 Pea liu mai mei Selūsalema ʻa Pānepasa mo Saula, kuo na fai ʻena fekau, pea naʻa na ō mo Sione, ʻoku hingoa ko Maʻake.
