1 Ko e manavahē ʻae kakai kia Motekiai, pea nau tokoni ʻae kakai Siu, ko ia naʻa nau tāmateʻi honau ngaahi fili, mo e foha ʻe hongofulu ʻo Hamani. 12 Naʻe tuku ʻe ʻAhasivelo ʻi he kole ʻa Eseta, ʻae ʻaho ʻe taha ke tāmateʻi, pea kenau tautau ʻae ngaahi foha ʻo Hamani. 20 Ko e ʻaho ʻe ua ʻoku fai ai ʻae kātoanga.
Pea ʻi hono hongofulu mā ua ʻoe māhina, ʻaia ko e māhina ko ʻAtali ʻi hono hongofulu mā tolu ʻoe ʻaho ʻi ai, ʻi he hoko ʻo ofi ʻae fekau mo e tuʻutuʻuni ʻae tuʻi ke fakatonutonu, ʻi he ʻaho ko ia naʻe ʻamanaki ai ʻe he ngaahi fili ʻoe Siu ke nau maʻu ʻae mālohi kiate kinautolu, (ka naʻe liliu kehe ia, koeʻuhi naʻe hoko ʻo pule ʻae kakai Siu kiate kinautolu naʻe fehiʻa kiate kinautolu:) Naʻe kātoa fakataha ʻakinautolu ʻe he kakai Siu ʻi honau ngaahi kolo ʻi he ngaahi puleʻanga kotoa pē ʻoe tuʻi ko ʻAhasivelo, ke puke ʻakinautolu ʻoku kumi ke fai kovi kiate kinautolu: pea naʻe ʻikai ha tangata naʻe faʻa talia ʻakinautolu: he naʻe tō ʻae manavahē kiate kinautolu ʻi he kakai kotoa pē. Pea naʻe tokoni ki he kakai Siu ʻae ngaahi tuʻi ʻoe ngaahi puleʻanga, mo e kau matāpule, mo e kau tokoni, mo e kau matāpule ʻae tuʻi; he naʻe tō kiate kinautolu ʻae manavahē kia Motekiai. He naʻe hoko ʻo lahi ʻa Motekiai ʻi he fale ʻoe tuʻi, pea naʻe ongo atu ki he ngaahi puleʻanga kotoa pē ʻa ʻene ongolelei: he ko e tangata ni ko Motekiai naʻe fakaʻaʻau ai pe ia ke hakeakiʻi. Pea naʻe taaʻi pehē pē ʻe he kakai Siu honau ngaahi fili kotoa pē ʻaki ʻae tā ʻoe heletā, mo e tāmateʻi, mo e fakaʻauha, ʻonau fai ʻenau faʻiteliha kiate kinautolu naʻe fehiʻa kiate kinautolu. Pea naʻe tāmateʻi ʻo fakaʻauha ʻe he kakai Siu ʻae kau tangata ʻe toko nimangeau ʻi Susani ko e kolo fakaʻeiki. Pea naʻe tāmateʻi ʻa Pasanitata, mo Talifoni, mo ʻAsipata. Mo Polate, mo ʻAtalia, mo ʻAlitata, Mo Pamasita, mo ʻAlisai, mo ʻAlitai, mo Vasisata, 10 Ko e foha ʻe hongofulu ʻo Hamani ko e foha ʻo Hamitata, ko e fili ʻoe kakai Siu, naʻa nau tāmateʻi: ka naʻe ʻikai te nau ala honau nima ki he koloa vete. 11 Naʻe ʻomi ʻi he ʻaho ko ia ki he ʻao ʻoe tuʻi hono lau ʻokinautolu naʻe tāmateʻi ʻi Susani ko e kolo fakaʻeiki.
12 ¶ Pea naʻe pehē ʻe he tuʻi kia Eseta ko e tuʻi fefine, “Kuo tāmateʻi mo fakaʻauha ʻe he kakai Siu ʻae kau tangata ʻe toko nimangeau ʻi Susani ko e kolo, mo e foha ʻe hongofulu ʻo Hamani; ko e hā kuo nau fai ʻi he ngaahi toenga puleʻanga ʻoe tuʻi? Pea ko eni, ko e hā haʻo kole? Pea ʻe tuku ia kiate koe: pe ko e hā haʻo tala ʻoku toe? Pea ʻe fai ia.” 13 Pea pehē ai ʻe Eseta, “Kapau ʻoku lelei ki he tuʻi, tuku ke ngofua ki he kakai Siu ʻaia ʻoku ʻi Susani ke nau fai ʻapongipongi ʻo hangē ko e tuʻutuʻuni ʻoe ʻaho ni, pea tuku ke tautau ʻae foha ʻe hongofulu ʻo Hamani ki he tautauʻanga.” 14 Pea naʻe fekau ʻe he tuʻi ke fai ia pea naʻe fai ʻae fono ʻi Susani; pea naʻa nau tautau ʻae foha ʻe hongofulu ʻo Hamani. 15 He naʻe fakataha ʻae kakai Siu naʻe ʻi Susani ʻi hono hongofulu mā fā ʻoe ʻaho ʻoe māhina ko ʻAtali, ʻonau tāmateʻi ʻae kau tangata ʻe toko tolungeau ʻi Susani; ka naʻe ʻikai te nau ala ki he vete. 16 Ka ko e ngaahi Siu niʻihi naʻe ʻi he ngaahi puleʻanga ʻoe tuʻi naʻa nau fakakātoa fakataha ʻakinautolu, ʻonau tuʻu tali tau koeʻuhi ko ʻenau moʻui, pea naʻa nau maʻu ʻae mālōlō mei honau ngaahi fili, pea tāmateʻi ʻi honau ngaahi fili ko e toko fitu mano mo e toko nima afe, ka naʻe ʻikai te nau ala ki he vete, 17 ‌ʻI hono hongofulu mā tolu ʻoe ʻaho ʻoe māhina ko ʻAtali: pea ʻi hono hongofulu mā fā ʻoe ʻaho ʻoe māhina ko ia naʻa nau mālōlō, ʻonau ngaohi ia ko e ʻaho kātoanga kai mo fakafiefia: 18 Ka ko e kakai Siu naʻe ʻi Susani naʻa nau fakakātoa fakataha ʻakinautolu ʻi hono hongofulu mā tolu, pea ʻi hono hongofulu mā fā, pea ʻi hono hongofulu mā nima naʻa nau mālōlō, ʻo ngaohi ia ko e ʻaho kātoanga kai mo fakafiefia. 19 Ko ia ko e kakai Siu ʻoe ngaahi potu kakai, ʻaia naʻe nofo ʻi he ngaahi kolo taʻehanoʻā, naʻa nau ngaohi hono hongofulu mā fā ʻoe ʻaho ʻoe māhina, ko ʻAtali, ko e ʻaho fiefia mo kātoanga kai, mo e ʻaho lelei, ke feʻaveʻaki pē ʻae ngaahi ʻinasi kiate kinautolu.
20 ¶ Pea naʻe tohi ʻe Motekiai ʻae ngaahi meʻa ni, ʻo ne fekau ʻae ngaahi tohi ki he kakai Siu kotoa pē naʻe ʻi he ngaahi puleʻanga kotoa pē ʻoe tuʻi ko ʻAhasivelo, ʻae ofi mo e mamaʻo, 21 Ke fakatuʻumaʻu ʻae meʻa ni ʻiate kinautolu, koeʻuhi ke nau tauhi maʻu hono hongofulu ma fā ʻoe ʻaho ʻoe māhina ko ʻAtali, mo hono hongofulu ma nima ʻoe ʻaho, ʻi he taʻu kotoa pē, 22 ‌ʻAia ko e ngaahi ʻaho naʻe mālōlō ai ʻae kakai Siu mei honau ngaahi fili, mo e māhina naʻe foki ai ʻae mamahi meiate kinautolu ki he fiefia, pea mei he tangi ki he ʻaho lelei: koeʻuhi ke nau ngaohi ia ko e ongo ʻaho kātoanga kai mo fakafiefia, mo e feʻaveʻaki ʻoe ngaahi meʻa kiate kinautolu, mo e ngaahi meʻa foaki ki he masiva. 23 Pea naʻe alea ʻae kakai Siu ke fai pe ʻo hangē ko ia kuo nau kamata, pea hangē ko ia naʻe tohi ʻe Motekiai kiate kinautolu; 24 Ko e meʻa ʻia Hamani ko e foha ʻo Hamitata, ko e tangata Ekaki, ko e fili ʻoe kakai Siu kotoa pē, ʻaia naʻa ne filioʻi kovi ki he kakai Siu ke fakaʻauha ʻakinautolu, mo ne fai ʻae “Puli,” ʻaia ko e talotalo, ke tāmateʻi ʻakinautolu, mo fakaʻauha ʻakinautolu; 25 Ka ʻi he haʻu ʻa Eseta ki he ʻao ʻoe tuʻi, naʻa ne fekau ʻi he ngaahi tohi, koeʻuhi ko ʻene filioʻi angakovi, ʻaia naʻa ne fakatupu ki he kakai Siu, ke foki mai ia ki hono ʻulu ʻoʻona, pea ke tautau ia mo hono ngaahi foha ki he tautauʻanga. 26 Ko ia naʻa nau ui ai ʻae ʻaho ko ia, ko Pulimi ko e hingoa mei he lea ko Puli. Ko ia ko e meʻa ʻi he ngaahi lea kotoa pē ʻoe tohi ni, pea mo ia naʻa nau mamata ki ai, ʻaia ʻoku kau ki he meʻa ni, pea mo ia naʻe hoko kiate kinautolu, 27 Naʻe tuʻutuʻuni ʻe he kakai Siu, pea fakahoko kiate kinautolu, pea ki honau hako, pea kiate kinautolu naʻe fakahoko ʻakinautolu kiate kinautolu, pea ke ʻoua naʻa ngata, kenau tauhi ʻae ongo ʻaho ni ʻo fakatatau ki heʻena tohi, pea fakatatau ki hono kuonga kuo tuʻutuʻuni ʻi he taʻu kotoa pē: 28 Pea koeʻuhi ke manatuʻi mo tauhi ʻae ongo ʻaho ni, ʻi he toʻutangata kotoa pē tuku fakaholo, ʻi he faʻahinga kotoa pē, ʻi he puleʻanga kotoa pē, pea ʻi he kolo kotoa pē: pea ko e ongo ʻaho ʻoe Pulimi ke ʻoua naʻa ngata mei he kakai Siu, pea ʻoua naʻa mole ʻae manatu ki ai mei honau hako. 29 Pea naʻe tohi ai ʻe Eseta ko e tuʻi fefine, ko e ʻofefine ʻo ʻApieli, mo Motekiai ko e Siu, ʻi he mālohi lahi, ke fakatuʻumaʻu hono ua ʻoe tohi ʻo Pulimi. 30 Pea naʻa ne fekau ʻae ngaahi tohi mo e ngaahi lea ʻae melino mo e moʻoni, ki he kakai Siu kotoa pē, ki he ngaahi vāhenga fonua ʻe teau mā uofulu mā fitu ʻoe puleʻanga ʻo ʻAhasivelo, 31 Ke fakamoʻoni ki he ongo ʻaho ʻoe Pulimi ʻi hona kuonga, ʻo hangē ko e tuʻutuʻuni naʻe fekau ʻe Motekiai ko e Siu mo Eseta ko e tuʻi fefine, pea hangē ko ʻena tuʻutuʻuni moʻo kinaua pea maʻa honau hako, ko e meʻa ʻoe ʻaukai mo ʻenau tangi. 32 Pea ko e fono ʻa Eseta naʻe fakapapau ki he ngaahi meʻa ʻoe Pulimi; pea naʻe tohi ia ʻi he tohi.
