1 ʻOku fekau ʻe he ʻOtua ki he kakai ʻIsileli ke kole ʻae ngaahi teunga mei honau kaungāʻapi. 4 ʻOku valoki ʻaki ʻa Felo ʻe Mōsese ʻae mate ʻoe ʻuluaki fānau.
Pea naʻe folofola ʻa Sihova kia Mōsese, “ʻOku toe taha pe ʻae tautea te u ʻomi kia Felo mo ʻIsipite; hili ia, te ne tuku ke mou ʻalu ʻi heni: pea ka fekau ia ke mou ʻalu, ko e moʻoni te ne kapusi ʻakimoutolu ke ʻalu kotoa pē ʻi heni. Ke ke lea ʻi he telinga ʻoe kakai, pea tuku ke nau kole taki taha ʻae tangata ʻi hono kaungāʻapi, mo e fefine kotoa pē ʻi hono kaungāʻapi, ʻae ngaahi teunga siliva, mo e teunga koula.” Pea naʻe fakaʻofeina ʻe Sihova ʻae kakai ʻi he ʻao ʻoe kakai ʻIsipite. Kae muʻa hake foki, naʻe ongoongo lahi ʻaupito ʻae tangata ko Mōsese ʻi he fonua ko ʻIsipite, ʻi he ʻao ʻoe kau tamaioʻeiki ʻa Felo, pea mo e ʻao ʻoe kakai. Pea pehē ʻe Mōsese, “ʻOku pehē mai ʻa Sihova, ‘ʻE feʻunga mo e tuʻuapō te u ʻalu atu ki he lotolotonga ʻo ʻIsipite: Pea ʻe mate ʻae ʻuluaki fānau kotoa pē ʻi he fonua ko ʻIsipite, mei he ʻuluaki fānau ʻa Felo ʻoku nofo ʻi hono nofoʻanga, ʻo aʻu ki he ʻuluaki fānau ʻae kaunanga ʻoku muimui ʻi he meʻa momosi; pea mo e ʻuluaki fānau kotoa pē ʻoe fanga manu. Pea ʻe ai ʻae tangi lahi ʻi he ngaahi potu kotoa pē ʻoe fonua ko ʻIsipite, ʻaia naʻe ʻikai hano tatau ʻi muʻa, pea ʻe ʻikai toe ai ha meʻa pehē. Ka ko e fānau ʻa ʻIsileli, ʻe ʻikai ha kulī ʻe taha ke ne ueʻi hono ʻelelo ki ai, ki ha tangata pe ki ha manu: koeʻuhi ke mou ʻilo kuo fai kehekehe ʻe Sihova ki he kakai ʻIsipite mo e kakai ʻIsileli.’ ” Pea ko kinautolu ni ko hoʻo kau tamaioʻeiki kotoa pē, te nau ʻalu hifo kiate au, ʻonau punou hifo ʻakinautolu kiate au, ʻo pehē, “Ke ke ʻalu koe, pea mo e kakai kotoa pē ʻoku muimui ʻiate koe; pea hili ia, te u ʻalu kituaʻā.” Pea naʻe ʻalu ia kituaʻā meia Felo ʻoku ʻita lahi. Pea naʻe folofola ʻa Sihova kia Mōsese, “ʻE ʻikai tokanga ʻa Felo kiate kimoua: koeʻuhi ke fakalahi ai ʻeku ngaahi meʻa mana ʻi he fonua ko ʻIsipite.” 10 Pea naʻe fai ʻe Mōsese mo ʻElone ʻae ngaahi mana ni kotoa pē ʻi he ʻao ʻo Felo: pea naʻe fakafefeka ʻe Sihova ʻae loto ʻo Felo, ko ia naʻe ʻikai te ne tukuange ʻae fānau ʻa ʻIsileli ke ʻalu mei hono fonua.
