1 ʻOku lāunga ʻae kakai ʻi Lefitimi ʻi he masiva vai. 5 ʻOku fekau ia ʻe he ʻOtua ki he maka ʻi Holepi ke maʻu mei ai ʻae vai. 8 Ko e poupou hake ʻae nima ʻo Mōsese ko e vaivaiʻanga ʻa ʻAmaleki. 15 ʻOku langa ʻe Mōsese ʻae feilaulauʻanga.
Pea naʻe fononga ʻae fakataha kotoa pē ʻae fānau ʻa ʻIsileli mei he toafa ʻo Sini, ʻi he anga ʻo honau ngaahi fononga, ʻo fakatatau ki he fekau ʻa Sihova, ʻonau ʻapitanga ʻi Lefitimi: pea naʻe ʻikai ha vai ʻi ai ke inu ʻe he kakai. Ko ia naʻe lea fakamamahi ai ʻae kakai kia Mōsese, ʻo pehē, “Tuku mai ha vai kiate kimautolu ke mau inu.” Pea pehē ʻe Mōsese kiate kinautolu, “Ko e hā ʻoku mou tautea ai au? Ko e hā ʻoku mou ʻahiʻahi kovi ai kia Sihova?” Pea naʻe holi ʻae kakai ki he vai; pea lāunga ʻae kakai kia Mōsese, ʻo pehē, “Ko e hā kuo ke ʻomi ai ʻakimautolu mei ʻIsipite ke tāmateʻi ʻakimautolu mo e mau fānau, mo e mau fanga manu ʻaki ʻae fie inu?” Pea naʻe tangi ʻa Mōsese kia Sihova, ʻo pehē, “Ko e hā te u fai ki he kakai ni? ʻOku nau meimei tolongaki au ʻaki ʻae maka.” Pea naʻe folofola ʻa Sihova kia Mōsese, “ʻAlu atu ʻo muʻomuʻa ʻi he kakai, pea ʻalu mo koe ʻae mātuʻa ʻo ʻIsileli: mo ho tokotoko ʻaia naʻa ke tā ʻaki ʻae vaitafe, toʻo ia ʻi ho nima, mo ke ʻalu. Vakai, te u tuʻu ʻi ho ʻao ʻi ai ʻi he maka ʻi Holepi; pea te ke tā ʻae maka pea ʻe tupu mei ai ʻae vai, koeʻuhi ke inu ai ʻae kakai.” Pea naʻe fai ia ʻe Mōsese ʻi he ʻao ʻoe kau mātuʻa ʻo ʻIsileli. Pea ne ui hono hingoa ʻoe potu ko ia ko Masa, mo Melipa, ko e meʻa ʻi he lea fakamamahi ʻae fānau ʻa ʻIsileli, pea ko e meʻa ʻi heʻenau ʻahiʻahi kovi kia Sihova, ʻi heʻenau pehē, “ʻOku ʻiate kitautolu ʻa Sihova pe ʻikai?”
¶ Pea naʻe haʻu ʻa ʻAmaleki, ʻo tauʻi ʻa ʻIsileli ʻi Lefitimi. Pea naʻe fekau ʻe Mōsese kia Siosiua, “Fili haʻatau kau tangata, pea ʻalu ʻo tauʻi ʻa ʻAmaleki: teu tuʻu ʻapongipongi ki he tumutumu ʻoe moʻunga mo e tokotoko ʻoe ʻOtua ʻi hoku nima.” 10 Pea naʻe fai ʻe Siosiua ʻo hangē ko e fekau ʻa Mōsese kiate ia, ʻo ne tauʻi ʻa ʻAmaleki: pea naʻe ʻalu ʻa Mōsese, mo ʻElone, mo Hua, ki he tumutumu ʻoe moʻunga. 11 Pea naʻe pehē, ʻi he hiki ki ʻolunga ʻae nima ʻo Mōsese, naʻe mālohi ʻa ʻIsileli: pea ka tuku hifo hono nima, naʻe mālohi ʻa ʻAmaleki. 12 Ka naʻe mamafa ʻae nima ʻo Mōsese pea naʻa nau toʻo ʻae maka ʻo tuku ia ke ne heka ai: pea naʻe poupou hake hono nima ʻe ʻElone mo Hua, ko e tokotaha ki hono toʻomataʻu, mo e taha ki hono toʻohema; pea naʻe taʻengāue hono nima ʻo aʻu ki he tō ʻae laʻā. 13 Pea naʻe ikuna ʻe Siosiua ʻa ʻAmaleki mo hono kakai ʻaki ʻae mata ʻoe heletā. 14 Pea naʻe fekau ʻe Sihova kia Mōsese, “Tohi ʻae meʻa ni ʻi ha tohi, ko e meʻa fakamanatu, pea lau ia ʻi he telinga ʻo Siosiua: he te u fakaʻauha ʻaupito ʻae fakamanatu ki ʻAmaleki mei he lalo langi.” 15 Pea naʻe fokotuʻu ʻe Mōsese ʻae ʻesifeilaulau, ʻo ne ui hono hingoa ko Sihova-nisai: 16 He naʻa ne pehē, “Kuo fuakava ʻa Sihova, ʻe tauʻi maʻuaipē ʻe Sihova ʻa ʻAmaleki ʻi he toʻutangata ki he toʻutangata.”
