Pea kuo nau ʻalu ʻi ʻAmifipoli mo ʻApolonia, pea nau aʻu ki Tesalonika, pea naʻe ʻi ai ʻae falelotu ʻoe kakai Siu. Pea naʻe ʻalu ʻa Paula kiate kinautolu, ʻo hangē ko ʻene faʻa fai, pea ne malangaʻaki ʻae ngaahi tohi kiate kinautolu ʻi he ʻaho Sāpate ʻe tolu, “ʻO fakamatala mo fakamoʻoni, naʻe taau mo Kalaisi ke mamahi, mo toetuʻu mei he pekia; pea ko Sisu eni, ʻoku ou malangaʻaki kiate kimoutolu, ko e Kalaisi ia.” Pea naʻe tui honau niʻihi, ʻonau kau taha mo Paula mo Sailosi; pea mo e tokolahi ʻi he Kiliki kuo lotu, pea mo e kau fineʻeiki tokolahi.
¶ Ka ko e kakai Siu naʻe ʻikai tui, naʻa nau meheka, pea naʻa nau ʻave mo kinautolu ʻae kau siana pauʻu, pea tānaki ʻae tokolahi, ʻonau veuveuki ʻae kolo, pea feʻohofi ki he fale ʻo Sesoni, ʻo kumi ke ʻomi ʻakinaua kituʻa ki he kakai. Pea ʻi he ʻikai te nau ʻilo ʻakinaua, naʻa nau toho ʻa Sesoni mo e kāinga niʻihi ki he kau fakamaau ʻoe kolo, mo nau kalanga, Ko kinautolu kuo fulihi ʻa māmani, kuo nau haʻu foki ki heni; Pea kuo maʻu ʻakinautolu ʻe Sesoni pea ʻoku nau fai kehe kotoa pē mo e ngaahi fono ʻa Sisa, mo nau pehē, ‘ʻOku ai ʻae tuʻi ʻe taha, ko Sisu.’ Pea naʻa nau fakamanavahēʻi ʻae kakai mo e kau fakamaau ʻoe kolo, ʻi heʻenau fanongo ki he ngaahi meʻa ni. Pea ʻi heʻenau maʻu ʻae tuku lea totongi ʻa Sesoni mo hono toe ʻoe kāinga, naʻa nau tukuange ʻakinautolu.
10 ¶ Pea naʻe tukuange leva ʻe he kāinga ʻa Paula mo Sailosi ke na ō poʻuli ki Pelea: pea kuo na aʻu ki ai, pea na hū ki he falelotu ʻoe kakai Siu. 11 Pea naʻe loto lelei ʻakinautolu ni ʻiate kinautolu ʻi Tesalonika, he naʻa nau maʻu ʻae folofola mo e loto fiefia, ʻonau kumi ʻi he ngaahi tohi ʻi he ʻaho kotoa pē, ki hono moʻoni ʻoe ngaahi meʻa ni. 12 Ko ia naʻe tui ai ʻae tokolahi ʻiate kinautolu; pea mo e kau fineʻeiki ʻi he kakai Kiliki, pea mo e kau tangata tokolahi. 13 Pea kuo ʻilo ʻe he kakai Siu ʻi Tesalonika kuo malangaʻaki ʻe Paula ʻae folofola ʻae ʻOtua ʻi Pelea, naʻa nau ʻalu ki ai, ʻo fakamaveuveuʻi ʻae kakai. 14 Pea tukuange leva ʻe he kāinga ʻa Paula ke hala tahi ia ʻo ʻalu: ka naʻe nofo pe ʻi ai ʻa Sailosi mo Timote. 15 Pea ko kinautolu naʻe fakahinohino ʻa Paula, naʻa nau ʻomi ia ki ʻAtenisi: pea kuo nau maʻu ʻae fekau kia Sailosi mo Timote, ke na haʻu vave kiate ia, naʻa nau ʻalu.
16 ¶ Pea naʻe kei tatali ʻa Paula kiate kinaua ʻi ʻAtenisi, pea ngaueue hono laumālie ʻiate ia, ʻi heʻene mamata kuo pito ʻae kolo ʻi he tamapua. 17 Pea naʻe kikihi ia ʻi he falelotu mo e kakai Siu, pea mo e kakai kuo lotu, pea mo kinautolu naʻa nau fetaulaki mo ia ʻi he potu fakatau ʻi he ʻaho kotoa pē. 18 Pea naʻe toki fetaulaki mo ia ʻae kau fiepoto ʻoe faʻahinga ʻo ʻEpikulio, mo Sitoiko. Pea pehē ʻe he niʻihi, “Ko e hā ʻoku lau ʻe he palau na?” Pea pehē ʻe he niʻihi, “ʻOku matamata fakahā ʻotua foʻou ia:” koeʻuhi naʻa ne malangaʻaki kiate kinautolu ʻa Sisu, mo e toetuʻu. 19 Pea naʻe ʻomi ia, ʻo ʻave ki he ʻAleopeiko, mo nau pehē, “ʻOku mau fie ʻilo pē ko e hā ʻae akonaki foʻou ni, ʻoku ke leaʻaki. 20 He ʻoku ke ʻomi meʻa foʻou ki homau telinga: ko ia ʻoku mau fie ʻilo ai hono ʻuhinga ʻoe ngaahi meʻa ni.” 21 (He ko e kakai ʻAtenisi kotoa pē, mo e ʻāunofo ʻi ai, naʻa nau mātuʻaki nofo pe ke lau, mo fakafanongo ki he meʻa foʻou.)
22 ¶ Pea naʻe tuʻu ʻa Paula ʻi he lotolotonga ʻoe ʻAleopeiko, ʻo ne pehē, “ʻAkimoutolu ʻi ʻAtenisi, ʻoku ou vakai ʻoku mou faʻa fai ʻo lahi ʻae lotu. 23 Koeʻuhi ʻi heʻeku ʻalu, ʻoku ou mamata ki he meʻa ʻoku mou lotu ki ai, pea ne u ʻilo ʻae ʻesifeilaulau, ʻoku tuʻu ai ʻae tohi ni, ‘KI HE ʻOTUA ʻOKU ʻIKAI ʻILOA.’ Pea ko ia ʻoku mou lotu taʻeʻilo ki ai, ko ia ia ʻoku ou fakahā kiate kimoutolu. 24 Ko e ʻOtua ʻaia naʻa ne ngaohi ʻa māmani mo e meʻa kotoa pē ʻoku ʻi ai, ʻoku ʻikai nofo ia ʻi he ngaahi fale kuo ngaohi ʻe he nima, he ko e ʻEiki ia ʻoe langi mo māmani; 25 Pea ʻoku ʻikai tauhi ʻaki ia ʻae nima ʻoe tangata, ʻo hangē ʻoku masiva ia ʻi ha meʻa, he ʻoku foaki ʻe ia ki he meʻa kotoa pē ʻae moʻui, mo e mānava, mo e meʻa kotoa pē; 26 Pea naʻe ngaohi ʻe ia ʻi he toto pe taha ʻae ngaahi kakai kotoa pē ke nofo ʻi he funga ʻo māmani kotoa pē, pea kuo tomuʻa tukupau ʻae ngaahi kuonga, mo e ngataʻanga ʻo honau nofoʻanga; 27 Ke nau kumi ki he ʻEiki, ʻo tautaufā ki ai, heiʻilo pe te nau maʻu ia, ka ʻoku ʻikai mamaʻo ia mo kitautolu taki taha kotoa pē. 28 ‘He ʻoku tau moʻui, mo ngaueue, mo nofo pē, ʻiate ia;’ ʻo hangē ko e lea ʻae niʻihi ʻi hoʻomou kau tohi hiva, ‘He ko hono hako foki ʻakitautolu.’ 29 Pea kapau ko e hako ʻoe ʻOtua ʻakitautolu, ʻoku ʻikai lelei ʻetau mahalo ʻoku tatau ʻae ʻOtua mo e koula, pe ko e siliva, pe ko e maka, kuo tongitongi ʻaki ʻae poto mo e filioʻi ʻoe tangata. 30 Pea naʻe ʻikai fie ʻafioʻi ʻe he ʻOtua ʻae ngaahi kuonga ʻoe vale ni, ka ʻoku ne fekau eni ki he kakai kotoa pē, ʻi he potu kotoa pē, ke nau fakatomala: 31 Koeʻuhi kuo ne kotofa ʻae ʻaho, te ne fakamaau māʻoniʻoni ai ʻa māmani, ʻi he tangata kuo ne fakanofo; pea kuo ne fakapapau ia ki he kakai kotoa pē, ʻI heʻene fokotuʻu ia mei he pekia.”
32 ¶ Pea ʻi heʻenau fanongo ki he toetuʻu ʻae pekia, naʻe manuki ʻae niʻihi: kae pehē ʻe he niʻihi, “Te mau toe fanongo ʻiate koe ki he meʻa ni.” 33 Pea ʻalu ai ʻa Paula ʻiate kinautolu. 34 Ka naʻe pikitai ʻae kau tangata niʻihi kiate ia, pea nau tui: pea naʻe ʻi ai ʻa Taionisio ʻoe ʻAleopeiko, pea ko e fefine naʻe hingoa ko Temalisi, pea mo e niʻihi foki mo kinautolu.
