“ʻOua naʻa ke feilaulau ʻaki kia Sihova ko ho ʻOtua ha pulu, pe ha sipi, ʻaia ʻoku ai hano mele, pe ha momoʻi kovi: he ko e meʻa kovi ia kia Sihova ko ho ʻOtua.
¶ “Kapau ʻoku ʻilo ʻiate kimoutolu, ʻi ha kolo ʻaia ʻoku tuku mai ʻe Sihova ko ho ʻOtua kiate koe, ha tangata pe ha fefine, ʻaia kuo fai ʻe ia ʻae angakovi ʻi he ʻao ʻo Sihova ko ho ʻOtua, ʻi he fai talangataʻa ki heʻene fuakava, Pea kuo ʻalu ia ʻo tauhi ʻotua kehe, pea lotu ki ai, pe ko e laʻā, pe ko e māhina, pe ha meʻa ʻe taha ʻi he langi, ʻaia naʻe ʻikai te u fekau; Pea kapau ʻoku tala ia kiate koe, pea kuo ke fanongo ki ai, mo ke fehuʻi fakapapau, pea vakai, ʻoku moʻoni, pea kuo pau pe ʻae meʻa ko ia, kuo fai ʻi ʻIsileli ʻae meʻa kovi ko ia: Te ke toki ʻomi kituʻa ʻae tangata pe ko e fefine ko ia, ʻaia kuo ne fai ʻae meʻa kovi ko ia, ki ho matapā, ʻio, ʻae tangata pe ko e fefine ko ia, pea tolongaki ʻaki ia ʻae maka, ke mate.
¶ “ʻI he ngutu ʻoe fakamoʻoni ʻe toko ua, pe toko tolu, ʻe tuku ke mate ʻaia ʻoku totonu ke mate; ka ʻi he ngutu ʻoe fakamoʻoni ʻe tokotaha pe ʻe ʻikai fakamaau ke mate ia; ‌ʻE tomuʻa ʻai ʻae nima ʻoe kau fakamoʻoni kiate ia ke tāmateʻi ia, pea toki hoko ʻae nima ʻoe kakai kotoa pē. ʻE pehē ʻa hoʻomou tukuange ai ʻae kovi ʻiate kimoutolu.
¶ “Kapau ʻe hoko ha meʻa ʻoku fifilingataʻa ʻaupito ʻa hono fakamaauʻi, ʻi he fetāmateʻiʻaki, ʻi he fefakamaau ʻaki, mo e fetāʻaki, ʻaia ʻoku tupu ai ʻae fakakikihi ʻi hoʻo ngaahi kolo: pea te ke toki tuʻu hake, ʻo ʻalu hake ki he potu ʻaia ʻe fili ʻe Sihova ko ho ʻOtua; Pea te ke haʻu ki he kau taulaʻeiki ko e kau Livai, pea kiate ia ʻoku fakamaau ʻi he ngaahi ʻaho ko ia, pea ke fehuʻi ki ai; pea tenau fakahā kiate koe ʻa hono fakamaau totonu. 10 Pea te ke fai ʻo hangē ko hono fakatonutonu, ʻaia ʻe fakahā ʻi he potu ko ia kiate koe ʻekinautolu, ʻi he potu ko ia ʻaia kuo fili ʻe Sihova; pea te ke tokanga ke fai ʻo fakatatau ki he meʻa kotoa pē ʻoku nau tala kiate koe: 11 Ke ke fai ʻo tatau mo e fakamaau ʻoe fono ʻaia tenau ako ʻaki kiate koe, pea hangē ko e fakamaau ʻaia tenau tala kiate koe, ʻoua naʻa ke afe mei hono fakatonutonu ʻaia tenau fakahā kiate koe, ki he nima toʻomataʻu, pe ki he toʻohema. 12 “Pea ko e tangata ko ia ʻoku pau pe ke fai loto lahi, pea ʻoku ʻikai fie fanongo ki he taulaʻeiki ʻaia ʻoku tuʻu ke tauhi ʻi ai ʻi he ʻao ʻo Sihova ko ho ʻOtua, pe ki he fakamaau, ko e tangata ko ia ʻe mate: pea te ke tukuange ʻae kovi mei ʻIsileli. 13 Pea ʻe fanongo ki ai ʻae kakai kotoa pē, pea manavahē, pea ʻe ʻikai toe fai ʻae anga loto lahi.
14 ¶ “ʻI hoʻo hoko atu ki he fonua ʻaia ʻoku foaki ʻe Sihova ko ho ʻOtua kiate koe, pea ke maʻu ia, mo ke nofo ki ai, pea ke pehē, Teu fakanofo ha tuʻi ke pule kiate au, ʻo hangē ko e ngaahi puleʻanga kotoa pē ʻoku takatakai au; 15 Ko e moʻoni ke ke fakanofo ia ko e tuʻi ke pule kiate koe, ʻaia ʻe fili ʻe Sihova ko ho ʻOtua: ke ke fakanofo ha tokotaha mei ho kāinga ko e tuʻi kiate koe: ʻoua naʻa ke fakanofo ha muli ke pule kiate koe, ʻaia ʻoku ʻikai ko ho tokoua. 16 Kaeʻoua naʻa fakalahi ʻe ia ʻae fanga hoosi kiate ia, pe pule ke toe ʻalu atu ʻae kakai ki ʻIsipite, koeʻuhi ke ne fakalahi ʻae fanga hoosi: he kuo folofola ʻa Sihova kiate kimoutolu, ʻE ʻikai te mou toe ʻalu ʻi he hala ko ia. 17 Pea ʻoua naʻa fakatokolahi ʻe ia ʻae ʻunoho kiate ia, telia naʻa afe kehe hono loto: pea ʻoua naʻa ne fakalahi ʻaupito ʻae siliva mo e koula kiate ia. 18 Pea ʻoka hoko ia ʻo nofo ʻi he nofoʻa fakatuʻi ʻo hono puleʻanga, te ne hiki ʻo tohi nima maʻana ʻae fono ni ʻi ha tohi mei he tohi ʻaia ʻoku ʻi he ʻao ʻoe kau taulaʻeiki mo e kau Livai: 19 Pea ʻe ʻiate ia ia, pea te ne lau ʻi ai ʻi he ngaahi ʻaho kotoa pē ʻo ʻene moʻui: koeʻuhi ke ʻilo ai ia ke manavahē kia Sihova ko hono ʻOtua, ke fai ki he ngaahi lea kotoa pē ʻoe fono ni mo e ngaahi tuʻutuʻuni, ke fai ki ai: 20 Ke ʻoua naʻa hiki hake hono loto ki hono kāinga, pea ke ʻoua naʻa tafoki mei he fekau, ki he nima toʻomataʻu, pe ki he toʻohema: koeʻuhi ke fakatolonga ai hono ngaahi ʻaho ʻi hono puleʻanga, ʻa ia, mo ʻene ngaahi fānau, ʻi he lotolotonga ʻo ʻIsileli.
