1 ʻOku hoko tatau ʻae meʻa ki he angalelei mo e angakovi. 4 ʻOku pau pe ke mate ʻae kakai. 7 Ko honau ʻinasi ʻae fakafiemālie ʻi he moʻui. 11 ʻOku kau ʻae pule ʻae ʻOtua ki he meʻa kotoa pē. 13 ʻOku lelei lahi ʻae poto ʻi he mālohi.
He naʻaku tokanga ʻi hoku loto ki he meʻa ni kotoa pē ke u fakahā kotoa pē ia, ʻoku ʻi he nima ʻoe ʻOtua ʻae māʻoniʻoni, mo e poto, pea mo ʻenau ngāue: ʻoku ʻikai ʻilo ʻe he tangata pe ko e ʻofeina ia pe ko e fehiʻanekina ʻi he meʻa ʻoku hoko mai kiate ia. He ʻoku hoko tatau ʻae meʻa fulipē ki he kakai kotoa pē: ko e meʻa ʻe taha ʻoku hoko ki he māʻoniʻoni mo e angahala; ki he angalelei mo ia kuo fakamaʻa, pea ki he taʻemaʻa; kiate ia ʻoku feilaulau, mo ia ʻoku ʻikai fai ha feilaulau: ʻoku hangē ko ia ʻoku angalelei, ʻoku pehē ʻaia ʻoku angahala, pea ko ia ʻoku fuakava, ʻo hangē ko ia ʻoku manavahē ki he fuakava. Ko e kovi eni ʻe taha ʻi he meʻa kotoa pē ʻoku fai ʻi he lalo laʻā, ʻae hoko tatau ʻae meʻa ki he kakai kotoa pē: ʻio, ʻoku fonu ʻi he kovi ʻae loto ʻoe fānau ʻae tangata, ʻoku ʻi honau loto ʻae vale ʻi heʻenau kei moʻui, pea hili ia ʻoku nau ʻalu ki he mate.
¶ He ʻoku ai ʻae ʻamanaki lelei kiate ia ʻoku kei kau ki he moʻui: he ʻoku lelei hake ʻae kulī ʻoku moʻui ʻi ha laione kuo mate. He ʻoku ʻilo ʻe he kakai moʻui te nau mate: ka ʻoku ʻikai siʻi ʻilo ha meʻa ʻe he mate, pea ʻoku ʻikai te nau kei maʻu ha totongi: he kuo ngalo ʻa honau fakamanatu. Pea ko ʻenau ʻofa, mo ʻenau fehiʻa, mo ʻenau meheka, kuo ʻosi ia; pea ʻoku ʻikai te nau kei maʻu honau tufakanga ʻi ha meʻa ʻoku fai ʻi he lalo laʻā ʻo taʻengata.
¶ ʻAlu koe ʻi ho hala, pea kai hoʻo mā ʻi he fiefia, pea inu hoʻo uaine ʻi he loto fiemālie; he kuo maʻu ʻe he ʻOtua hoʻo ngaahi ngāue. Ke hinehina maʻuaipē ho ngaahi kofu; pea ʻoua naʻa masiva ho ʻulu ʻi he pani. Ke ke moʻui fiefia mo ho ʻunoho, ʻaia ʻoku ke ʻofa ai ʻi he ʻaho kotoa pē ʻo hoʻo moʻui vaʻinga, ʻaia kuo ne foaki kiate koe ʻi he lalo laʻā, ʻae ngaahi ʻaho kotoa pē ʻo hoʻo vaʻinga: he ko ho ʻinasi ia ʻi he moʻui ni, mo e ngāue kuo ke fai ʻi he lalo laʻā. 10 Ko ia kotoa pē ʻoku ʻilo ʻe ho nima ke fai, fai ia ʻaki ho mālohi kotoa pē; he ʻoku ʻikai ha ngāue, pe ha filioʻi, pe ha ʻilo, pe ha poto ʻi he faʻitoka, ʻaia ʻoku ke ʻalu ki ai.
11 ¶ Naʻaku tafoki mai, pea u mamata ʻi he lalo laʻā, ko e pue ʻoku ʻikai kiate ia ʻoku veʻe vave, pe ko e tau kiate ia ʻoku mālohi, pe ko e meʻakai kiate ia ʻoku poto, pe ko e koloa ki he kakai ʻoku faʻa fakakaukau, pe ko e ongoongolelei ki he kakai poto; he ʻoku maʻu taki taha kotoa pē hono ʻaho mo hono tuʻutuʻuni. 12 He ʻoku ʻikai ʻilo foki ʻe he tangata ʻa hono ʻaho: ʻoku hangē ko e maʻu fakafokifā ʻoe ika ʻi he kupenga, pea hangē ko e maʻu ʻae manupuna ʻi he tauhele; ʻoku pehē ʻae tauheleʻi ʻae fānau ʻae tangata ʻi he ʻaho ʻoe kovi, ʻoka hoko fakafokifā ia kiate kinautolu. 13 Ko e poto ni foki kuo u mamata ki ai ʻi he lalo laʻā, pea naʻe matamata lahi ia kiate au. 14 Naʻe ai ʻae kihiʻi kolo, pea tokosiʻi ʻae kau tangata naʻe ʻi ai; pea naʻe haʻu ʻae tuʻi lahi ke ne tauʻi ia, pea naʻa ne kāpui ia, pea lahi ʻaupito ʻa ʻene tanu puke ki ai. 15 Ka ko eni, naʻe ʻilo ʻi ai ʻae tangata masiva mo poto, pea ko e meʻa ʻi heʻene poto naʻe hao ai ʻae kolo; ka naʻe ʻikai manatuʻi ʻe ha tokotaha ʻae tangata masiva ko ia. 16 Pea naʻaku toki pehē ai, ʻOku lelei hake ʻae poto ʻi he mālohi; ka ʻoku manukiʻi ʻae poto ʻoe tangata masiva, pea ʻoku ʻikai ongoʻi ʻene ngaahi lea. 17 ‌ʻOku ongo lahi mai ʻae fanafana ʻae poto ʻi he kalanga ʻo ia ʻoku pule ʻi he lotolotonga ʻoe vale. 18 ‌ʻOku lelei hake ʻae poto ʻi he mahafutau: ka ʻoku maumauʻi ʻe he angahala ʻe tokotaha ʻae lelei lahi.
