1 ʻOku hoko ʻae kakai ʻIsileli ki Sini. 2 ʻOku nau lāunga ʻi heʻenau masiva ma. 4 ʻOku fakaʻilo mā ʻe he ʻOtua mei he langi. 11 ʻOku tuku mai ʻae fanga kueili, 14 Mo e mana. 16 Ko hono ngaohi ʻoe mana. 25 Naʻe ʻikai ʻilo ia ʻi he Sāpate. 32 Ko e oma ʻaia kuo fekau ke tauhi.
Pea naʻe hiki honau fononga mei ʻElimi, pea haʻu ʻae fakataha kotoa pē ʻoe fānau ʻa ʻIsileli ki he toafa ko Sini, ʻaia ʻoku ʻi he vahaʻa ʻo ʻElimi mo Sainai, ʻi hono hongofulu ma nima ʻoe ʻaho, ʻi hono ua ʻoe māhina, hili ʻenau haʻu mei he fonua ko ʻIsipite. Pea naʻe lāunga ʻi he toafa ʻae fakataha kotoa pē ʻae fānau ʻa ʻIsileli kia Mōsese mo ʻElone. Pea naʻe lea ʻae fānau ʻa ʻIsileli kiate kinaua, ʻo pehē, “ʻOku mau fakaʻamu ki he ʻOtua, naʻa mau mate ʻi he nima ʻo Sihova ʻi he fonua ko ʻIsipite, ʻi heʻemau kei tauʻutu ofi ki he ngaahi kulo kakano, pea ne mau kai mā ʻo mākona; he kuo mo ʻomi ʻakimautolu ki he toafa ni, ke tāmateʻi ʻae fakataha ni kotoa pē ʻaki ʻae fiekaia.”
¶ Pea naʻe folofola ai ʻa Sihova kia Mōsese, “Vakai, Te u fakaʻuha ʻae mā mei he langi maʻamoutolu: pea ʻe ʻalu atu ʻae kakai ʻo tānaki fakatuhotuha ki he ʻaho kotoa pē ʻae mā, koeʻuhi ke u ʻahiʻahiʻi ʻakinautolu, pe te nau felakaʻi ʻi heʻeku ngaahi fekau pe ʻikai. Pea ʻi hono ono ʻoe ʻaho ʻe fai pehē, te nau ngaohi ʻaia kuo na tuku, pea ʻe tuʻoua hono lahi hake ʻi he mā ʻoku nau ʻomi ʻi he ʻaho kehe.” Pea naʻe tala ʻe Mōsese mo ʻElone ki he fānau kotoa pē ʻa ʻIsileli, “Te mou toki ʻilo ʻi he efiafi, kuo ʻomi ʻe Sihova ʻakimoutolu mei he fonua ko ʻIsipite: Pea ʻi he ʻapongipongi, te mou mamata ki he nāunau ʻo Sihova he ʻoku ne ʻafioʻi hoʻomou ngaahi lāunga pea ko hai ʻakimaua, koeʻuhi ke mou hanu ai kiate kimaua?” Pea pehē ʻe Mōsese, “ʻE tuku ʻe Sihova ʻae kakano kiate kimoutolu ʻi he efiafi, mo e mā ʻi he pongipongi ke mou mākona ai; he ʻoku ʻafioʻi ʻe Sihova hoʻomou lāunga ʻaia ʻoku mou lāunga ai kiate ia: pea ko hai ʻakimaua? ʻOku ʻikai kiate kimaua hoʻomou lāunga, ka kia Sihova.”
¶ Pea naʻe lea ʻa Mōsese kia ʻElone, “Tala ki he fakataha kotoa pē ʻae fānau ʻa ʻIsileli, Mou haʻu ʻo ofi ki he ʻao ʻo Sihova he kuo ne ʻafioʻi hoʻomou lāunga.” 10 Pea vakai lolotonga ʻae lea ʻa ʻElone ki he fakataha kotoa pē ʻae fānau ʻa ʻIsileli, naʻa nau sio atu ki he toafa, pea vakai, kuo ha mai ʻae nāunau ʻo Sihova ʻi he ʻao.
11 ¶ Pea naʻe folofola ʻa Sihova kia Mōsese, ʻo pehē, 12 “Kuo u ongoʻi ʻae lāunga ʻae fānau ʻa ʻIsileli: lea kiate kinautolu ʻo pehē, ʻi he efiafi te mou kai kakano, pea ʻi he pongipongi te mou mākona ʻi he mā: pea te mou ʻilo ko au ko Sihova ko homou ʻOtua.” 13 Pea ʻi heʻene efiafi naʻe hoko ʻo pehē, naʻe haʻu ʻae fuifui kueili, pea naʻe ʻuʻufi ʻae ʻapitanga; pea ʻi he pongipongi naʻe ʻufiʻufi takatakai ʻae ʻapitanga ʻe he hahau. 14 Pea ʻi he ʻalu hake ʻae hahau naʻe ʻūfia ai, vakai, naʻe ʻi ai ʻi he funga toafa ʻae meʻa siʻi potopoto, ʻo hangē ko e hahau fefeka ʻi he kelekele. 15 Pea ʻi he mamata ki ai ʻae fānau ʻa ʻIsileli, naʻa nau fepehēʻaki, “Ko e hā ia?” He naʻe ʻikai te nau ʻilo pe ko e hā. Pea pehē ʻe Mōsese kiate kinautolu, “Ko e mā eni kuo foaki mai ʻe Sihova ke mou kai. 16 Ko eni ʻae meʻa kuo fekau ʻe Sihova, Tānaki ia ʻe he tangata kotoa pē ʻo fakatatau ki heʻene kai, ko e oma ʻe taha mā ʻae tangata taki taha, ʻo fakatatau ki he lau ʻo homou kakai; ke toʻo taki taha ʻae tangata maʻanautolu ʻoku ʻi hono ngaahi fale fehikitaki.” 17 Pea naʻe fai pehē ʻe he fānau ʻa ʻIsileli, ʻo tānaki ia, naʻe lahi ʻae niʻihi, pea siʻi ʻae niʻihi. 18 Pea kuo fakafuofua ʻaki ia ʻae oma, naʻe ʻikai hano toe, kiate ia naʻe tānaki ʻo lahi, pea ko ia naʻe tānaki siʻi naʻe ʻikai hano masiva; naʻa nau tānaki ʻae tangata taki taha ʻo fakatatau ki heʻene kai. 19 Pea pehē ʻe Mōsese, “ʻOua naʻa tuku ʻe ha tangata hano toe ki he ʻapongipongi.” 20 Ka naʻe ʻikai te nau tokanga kia Mōsese; ka ko honau niʻihi naʻe tuku hano toe ki he ʻapongipongi, pea naʻe ʻuangahia ia, pea namuaʻa; pea naʻe ʻita ʻa Mōsese kiate kinautolu. 21 Pea naʻa nau tānaki ia ʻi he pongipongi kotoa pē, ʻae tangata taki taha ʻo tatau mo ʻene kai: pea ʻi he hoko ʻo vela ʻae laʻā, naʻe vai ʻo ʻosi ia.
22 ¶ Pea ʻi heʻene hoko ki hono ono ʻoe ʻaho, naʻa nau tānaki ʻo tuʻo ua hono lahi hake ʻoe mā, ko e oma ʻe ua ki he tangata pe taha: pea naʻe haʻu ʻae kau pule kotoa pē ʻoe kakai ʻo tala ia kia Mōsese. 23 Pea pehē ʻe ia kiate kinautolu, “Ko eni ia kuo folofola ai ʻa Sihova, Ko e mālōlō ʻoe Sāpate māʻoniʻoni kia Sihova ʻapongipongi: taʻo he ʻaho ni, ʻaia te mou taʻo, pea haka ʻaia te mou haka: pea ko ia ʻoku toe, hilifaki ia ki he ʻapongipongi maʻamoutolu.” 24 Pea naʻa nau hilifaki ki he ʻapongipongi, ʻo hangē ko e fekau ʻa Mōsese: pea naʻe ʻikai namuaʻa, pea naʻe ʻikai ha ʻuanga ʻi ai. 25 Pea pehē ʻe Mōsese, “Kai ia he ʻaho ni; he ko e ʻaho ni ko e Sāpate ia kia Sihova: ʻe ʻikai te mou ʻilo ia he ʻaho ni ʻi he ngoue. 26 Ko e ʻaho ʻe ono te mou tānaki ia; ka ʻi hono fitu ʻoe ʻaho ʻaia ko e Sāpate, ʻe ʻikai siʻi ʻi ai ia.”
27 ¶ Pea hoko ʻo pehē, naʻe ʻalu kituaʻā ʻae niʻihi ʻi he kakai ʻi hono fitu ʻoe ʻaho ke tānaki, ka naʻe ʻikai te nau ʻilo ia. 28 Pea naʻe folofola ʻa Sihova kia Mōsese, “ʻE tuku ʻafē hoʻomou taʻefietauhi ʻeku ngaahi fekau mo ʻeku ngaahi fono? 29 Vakai, ko e meʻa ʻi he foaki ʻe Sihova ʻae Sāpate kiate kimoutolu, ko ia ʻoku ne foaki ai kiate kimoutolu ʻi hono ono ʻoe ʻaho, ʻae mā ki he ʻaho ʻe ua: mou nofomaʻu taki taha ʻae tangata ʻi hono potu, ʻoua naʻa ʻalu ha tangata ʻe tokotaha mei hono potu ʻi hono fitu ʻoe ʻaho.” 30 Ko ia naʻe mālōlō ai ʻae kakai ʻi hono fitu ʻoe ʻaho. 31 Pea naʻe ui hono hingoa ʻe he fale ʻo ʻIsileli, ko e Mana: pea naʻe hinehina ia ʻo hangē ko e tengaʻi kolianita; pea ko hono ifo naʻe hangē ha mā kuo ngaohi ʻaki ʻae honi.
32 ¶ Pea pehē ʻe Mōsese, “Ko eni ʻae meʻa kuo fekau ʻe Sihova, Fakapito ʻaki ia ʻae oma ʻe taha ke fakatolonga ki homou toʻutangata ʻamui: koeʻuhi ke nau mamata ki he mā naʻaku fafanga ʻaki ʻakimoutolu ʻi he toafa, ʻi heʻeku ʻomi ʻakimoutolu mei he fonua ko ʻIsipite.” 33 Pea naʻe fekau ʻe Mōsese kia ʻElone, “Toʻo mai ha ipu, pea fakapito ʻae oma ʻe taha ʻi he mana ʻo lingi ia ki ai, pea hili ia ʻi he ʻao ʻo Sihova, ke tauhi maʻa homou ngaahi toʻutangata.” 34 Pea naʻe hili ia ʻe ʻElone ʻi he ʻao ʻoe Fuakava ke tauhi ia ʻo hangē ko e fekau ʻa Sihova kia Mōsese. 35 Pea naʻe kai mana ʻae fānau ʻa ʻIsileli ʻi he taʻu ʻe fāngofulu, ʻo aʻu ki heʻenau hoko ki he fonua naʻe kakai; naʻa nau kai mana ʻo aʻu ki heʻenau hoko ki he veʻe fonua ʻo Kēnani. 36 Pea ko e oma, ko hono vahe hongofulu ia ʻoe efa.
