1 Ko e tala ʻoku kau kia Felo. 3 ʻAe ongoongolelei ʻo ʻAsilia, 10 Pea mo ʻene hinga ʻi he fielahi. 18 ʻAe hinga pehē foki ʻa ʻIsipite.
Pea ʻi heʻene hoko ki hono hongofulu ma taha ʻoe taʻu, ʻi hono tolu ʻoe māhina, pea mo hono ʻuluaki ʻaho ʻoe māhina: naʻe hoko mai ʻae folofola ʻa Sihova kiate au, ʻo pehē, “Foha ʻoe tangata, lea kia Felo ko e tuʻi ʻo ʻIsipite, pea ki heʻene kakai; Ko hai ha taha ʻoku tatau mo koe?
“Vakai, ko ʻAsilia ko e sita lahi ʻi Lepanoni
naʻe lelei hono ngaahi vā,
naʻe fakapoʻupoʻuli ʻi hono malumalu,
pea naʻa ne māʻolunga,
pea naʻe aʻu hake hono ʻuluʻulu ki he ngaahi vā matolu.
Naʻe tupu lahi ia ko e meʻa ʻi he ngaahi vai,
naʻe tupu ia ʻo hako ki ʻolunga koeʻuhi ko e loloto
ʻoe ngaahi vaitafe naʻe tafe takatakai ʻi he ngaahi ʻakau toki tupu,
mo hono ngaahi mangamangaʻi vai naʻe tafe atu ki he ngaahi ʻakau ʻoe vao.
Ko ia naʻe fakamāʻolunga hake ai ia ʻi he ʻakau kotoa pē ʻoe vao,
pea tupu ʻo lahi hono ngaahi vaʻa,
pea hoko ʻo lōloa hono ngaahi vaʻa, koeʻuhi ko e lahi ʻoe vai,
ʻi heʻene tupu hake.
Naʻe ngaohi pununga ʻi hono vaʻa ʻae fanga manupuna kotoa pē ʻoe langi,
pea naʻe fakatō ʻe he fanga manu kotoa pē ʻoe vao,
ʻa honau ʻuhiki ʻi he malumalu ʻo hono ngaahi vaʻa,
pea naʻe nofo ʻi hono malumalu ʻae ngaahi puleʻanga lalahi.
Ko ia naʻe toulekeleka ia ʻi heʻene lahi,
mo e lōloa ʻa hono ngaahi vaʻa:
he naʻe tō hono aka ʻi he veʻe vai lahi.
Naʻe ʻikai faʻa fakalilo ia ʻe he ngaahi sita ʻi he ngoue ʻae ʻOtua:
naʻe ʻikai tatau ʻae fea mo hono ngaahi vaʻa iiki,
pea naʻe ʻikai tatau ʻae ʻakau ko e ifi papālangi mo hono ngaahi vaʻa lalahi;
pea naʻe ʻikai ha ʻakau ʻi he ngoue ʻae ʻOtua, ʻoku na tatau ʻi he matamatalelei:
Kuo u ngaohi ia ke matamatalelei,
ko e meʻa ʻi he lahi ʻa hono ngaahi vaʻa:
ko ia naʻe meheka ai kiate ia ʻae ngaahi ʻakau kotoa pē ʻi he ngoue ʻae ʻOtua.
10 Ko ia ʻoku pehē ai ʻe Sihova ko e ʻOtua; Koeʻuhi kuo ke hiki hake ko e ke ke māʻolunga, pea kuo ne ʻai ke ʻasi hake hono ʻuluʻulu ki he ngaahi vaʻa matolu, pea kuo hiki hono loto ko e meʻa ʻi heʻene māʻolunga; 11 Ko ia kuo u tuku atu ai ia ki he nima ʻo ia ʻoku mālohi taha ʻi he hiteni; ko e moʻoni te ne fai mo ia: kuo u kapusi ia ʻeau koeʻuhi ko ʻene ngaahi kovi. 12 Pea kuo tā hifo ia mo siʻakiʻi ʻe he kau muli, mo e kau toʻa mei he ngaahi puleʻanga: kuo tō hifo hono ngaahi vaʻa ʻi he ngaahi moʻunga, pea ʻi he teleʻa kotoa pē, pea kuo mafesifesi hono ngaahi vaʻa iiki ʻi he veʻe vaitafe kotoa pē ʻi he fonua; pea kuo ʻalu hifo ʻae kakai kotoa pē ʻo māmani mei hono malumalu, pea kuo nau siʻaki ia. 13 Pea ʻi heʻene malofa ʻe nofomaʻu kiate ia ʻae ngaahi manupuna ʻoe langi, pea ʻe heka ʻae fanga manu ʻoe vao ki hono ngaahi vaʻa. 14 Kuo fai eni, koeʻuhi ke ʻoua naʻa ʻi ai ha taha ʻoe ngaahi ʻakau ʻi he veʻe vaitafe ʻe hiki ʻe ia ia ke māʻolunga, pe te ne ʻai ke ʻasi hake hono ʻuluʻulu ki he ngaahi vaʻa matolu, pe tuʻu fakamāmāʻolunga, ʻaia kotoa pē ʻoku inumia ʻae vai: he kuo tuku kotoa pē ʻakinautolu ki he mate, ki he ngaahi potu māʻulalo ʻoe fonua, ʻi he lotolotonga ʻoe fānau ʻae tangata, pea mo kinautolu ʻoku ʻalu hifo ki he luo.” 15 ‌ʻOku pehē ʻe Sihova ko e ʻOtua: “Naʻaku fekau ke fai ʻae tangi mamahi ʻi he ʻaho ko ia naʻe ʻalu hifo ai ia ki he faʻitoka: ne u ʻufiʻufi ʻae loloto koeʻuhi ko ia, pea naʻaku taʻofi hono tafe ʻo ia, pea naʻe tuʻumaʻu ʻae ngaahi vai lalahi, pea naʻaku pule ki Lepanoni, ke tangi mamahi koeʻuhi ko ia, pea naʻe pongia koeʻuhi ko ia ʻae ngaahi ʻakau kotoa pē ʻoe vao. 16 Pea naʻaku fakangalulu ʻae ngaahi puleʻanga ʻi he longoaʻa ʻo ʻene hinga, ʻi heʻeku lī hifo ia ki heli fakataha mo kinautolu ʻoku ʻalu hifo ki he luo: pea ʻe fakafiemālieʻi ʻae ʻakau kotoa pē ʻi hiteni, pea mo e ʻakau fungani mo lelei kotoa pē ʻi Lepanoni, ʻaia kotoa pē ʻoku inumia ʻae vai, ʻi he ngaahi potu māʻulalo ʻoe māmani. 17 Naʻe ʻalu hifo foki mo ia ʻakinautolu ki heli, kiate kinautolu kuo tāmateʻi ʻaki ʻae heletā; pea mo kinautolu naʻa ne nimaʻaki, ʻakinautolu naʻe nofo ki lalo ʻi hono malumalu ʻi he lotolotonga ʻoe hiteni.
18 ¶ “Ko hai ha taha ʻoku mo tatau ʻi he nāunau; pea mo e lahi hake ʻi he ngaahi ʻakau ʻo ʻIteni? Ka neongo ia ʻe tulaki hifo koe ki lalo ki he potu māʻulalo ʻo māmani fakataha mo e ngaahi ʻakau ʻo ʻIteni: te ke tokoto hifo ʻi he lotolotonga ʻoe kakai taʻekamu, mo kinautolu kuo tāmateʻi ʻaki ʻae heletā.” ʻOku pehē ʻe Sihova ko e ʻOtua, “Ko eni ʻa Felo, pea mo hono kakai kotoa pē.”
