13
1 ʻOku fakatapui ʻae ʻuluaki fānau maʻae ʻOtua, 3 ʻOku fekau ke manatu ki he laka atu. 11 ʻOku vaheʻi ʻae ʻuluaki fānau ʻae manu. 17 ʻOku ʻalu ʻae fānau ʻa ʻIsileli mei ʻIsipite, pea hikitanga ʻae hui ʻa Siosefa. 20 ʻOku nau hoko ki ʻEtami. 21 ʻOku taki ʻakinautolu ʻe he ʻOtua ʻaki ʻae pou ʻoe ʻao, mo e pou ʻoe afi.
Pea naʻe folofola ʻa Sihova kia Mōsese, ʻo pehē, “Fakatapui maʻaku ʻae ʻuluaki fānau kotoa pē, ko ia kotoa pē ʻoku fakaava ʻae mānava ʻi he fānau ʻa ʻIsileli, ʻi he tangata mo e manu: ʻoku ʻaʻaku ia.”
¶ Pea pehē ʻe Mōsese ki he kakai, “Manatu ki he ʻaho ni, ʻa ia, kuo mou haʻu ai mei ʻIsipite, mei he fale fakapōpula: he kuo ʻomi ʻakimoutolu ʻe Sihova mei he potu ni ʻi he nima mālohi: ʻoua naʻa kai ha mā kuo fakalēvani. Kuo mou hao mai he ʻaho ni ʻi he māhina ko ʻApipi.
¶ Pea ka ʻomi koe ʻe Sihova ki he fonua ʻoe kau Kēnani, mo e kau Heti, mo e kau ʻAmoli, mo e kau Hevi, mo e kau Sepusi, ʻaia naʻa ne fuakava ai ki hoʻo ngaahi tamai ke foaki kiate koe, ʻae fonua mahu tāfea ʻi he huʻahuhu mo e honi, te ke fai ʻae ngāue ni ʻi he māhina ni. ‌ʻI he ʻaho ʻe fitu te ke kai mā taʻeaihalēvani, pea ʻe fai ʻi hono fitu ʻoe ʻaho ʻae kātoanga kia Sihova. ‌ʻE kai ʻae mā taʻefakalēvani ʻi he ʻaho ʻe fitu; pea ʻe ʻikai ha mā kuo ai ki ai ha lēvani ʻe ʻilo ʻiate koe, pea ʻe ʻikai ʻilo ha lēvani ʻiate koe ʻi hoʻo ngaahi potu kotoa pē.
¶ Pea te ke fakahā ki ho foha ʻi he ʻaho ko ia, ʻo pehē, ‘ʻOku fai ʻeni, koeʻuhi ko e meʻa ko ia ʻaia naʻe fai ʻe Sihova kiate au, ʻi heʻeku hao mei ʻIsipite.’ Pea ʻe ʻiate koe ia ko e fakaʻilonga ʻi ho nima, pea ko e meʻa fakamanatu ʻi he vahaʻa ʻo ho mata, koeʻuhi ke ʻi ho ngutu ʻae fono ʻa Sihova: he kuo ʻomi koe ʻe Sihova mei ʻIsipite ʻi he nima mālohi. 10 Ko ia ke ke tauhi ai ʻae fekau ni ʻi hono faʻahitaʻu tukufakaholo ʻi he taʻu kotoa pē.
11 ¶ “Pea ʻe pehē, ʻi he ʻomi koe ʻe Sihova ki he fonua ʻoe kau Kēnani, ʻo hangē ko ʻene fuakava kiate koe mo hoʻo ngaahi tamai, ʻo ne foaki ia kiate koe, 12 Te ke vaheʻi maʻa Sihova ʻaia kotoa pē ʻoku fakaava ʻae manāva, pea mo e ʻuluaki fānau kotoa pē ʻoku tupu ʻi he manu ʻoku ke maʻu: ko e manu tangata ʻoku ʻa Sihova ia. 13 Pea ko e ʻuluaki fānau ʻae ʻasi te ke huhuʻi ʻaki ʻae lami: pea kapau ʻe ʻikai te ke huhuʻi ia, te ke fesiʻi hono kia: pea ko e ʻuluaki fānau kotoa pē ʻi hoʻo fānau tangata te ke huhuʻi.
14 ¶ Pea ʻe pehē ʻoka fehuʻi ʻe ho foha kiate koe ʻamui, ʻo pehē, Ko e hā eni? Te ke tala ʻo pehē kiate ia, naʻe ʻomi ʻakimautolu ʻe Sihova mei ʻIsipite, mei he fale fakapōpula ʻi he nima mālohi. 15 Pea ʻi he ʻikai fie tuku mai ʻakimautolu ʻe Felo, naʻe tāmateʻi ʻe Sihova ʻae ʻuluaki fānau kotoa pē ʻi he fonua ko ʻIsipite, ʻae ʻuluaki fānau ʻae tangata mo e ʻuluaki fānau ʻae manu: ko ia ʻoku ou feilaulau ʻaki ai kia Sihova ʻae fānau tangata kotoa pē, ʻoku fakaava ʻae manāva: ka ko e ʻuluaki tupu kotoa pē ʻo ʻeku fānau ʻoku ou huhuʻi. 16 Pea ʻe hoko ia ko e fakaʻilonga ki ho nima, mo e meʻa fakamanatu ki ho laʻē: he naʻe ʻomi ʻakimautolu mei ʻIsipite ʻe Sihova ʻi he nima mālohi.”
17 ¶ Pea ko ʻeni, ʻi he tukuange ʻae kakai ʻe Felo ke nau ʻalu, naʻe ʻikai tataki ʻakinautolu ʻe he ʻOtua ʻi he hala ʻoe fonua ʻoe kau Filisitia, neongo hono ofi ia; he naʻe pehē ʻe he ʻOtua, Telia naʻa fakatomala ʻae kakai ʻi heʻenau mamata ki he tau, pea te nau foki ki ʻIsipite. 18 Ka naʻe tataki ʻe he ʻOtua ʻae kakai ke afe ʻi he hala ʻoe toafa ʻoe tahi Kulokula: pea naʻe hiki teuteu tau pe ʻae fānau ʻa ʻIsileli mei he fonua ko ʻIsipite. 19 Pea naʻe hikitanga ʻe Mōsese ʻae hui ʻo Siosefa ke ʻave: he naʻa ne fakafuakavaʻi totonu ʻae fānau ʻa ʻIsileli, ʻo pehē, ‘Ko e moʻoni ʻe ʻaʻahi ʻae ʻOtua kiate kimoutolu; pea te mou hikitanga hoku hui ʻo ʻave mei heni mo kimoutolu.’
20 ¶ Pea naʻa nau fononga mei Sukote, ʻonau ʻapitanga, ʻi ʻEtami, ʻi he veʻe toafa. 21 Pea naʻe hāʻele ʻo muʻomuʻa ʻiate kinautolu ʻa Sihova ʻi he pou ʻao ʻi he ʻaho, ke tataki ʻakinautolu ʻi he hala: pea mo e pou afi ʻi he poʻuli, ke fakamaama kiate kinautolu; ke nau ʻalu ʻaho, mo ʻalu ʻi he poʻuli: 22 Naʻe ʻikai te ne hiki ʻo ʻave ʻae pou ʻao ʻi he ʻaho, pe ko e pou afi ʻi he poʻuli mei he ʻao ʻoe kakai.
