1 Ko e ui ʻae ʻOtua kia ʻEpalame, pea ne tāpuaki ia ʻaki ʻae talaʻofa kia Kalaisi. 4 ʻOku na ō mo Lote mei Halani. 6 ʻOku ne fononga ki Kēnani, 7 ʻAia ʻoku talaʻofa ai kiate ia ʻi he meʻa hā mai. 10 Ko e meʻa ʻi he honge ʻoku ʻalu ki ʻIsipite. 11 Ko e manavahē, ko ia ʻoku ne ui ai hono ʻunoho ko hono tuofefine. 14 Kuo toʻo ia ʻe Felo meiate ia, pea ʻoku ne tukuange ia ko e meʻa ʻi he ngaahi hangatāmaki.
Ka ko eni, kuo pehē ʻe Sihova kia ʻEpalame, “ʻAlu koe ʻi ho fonua, pea mei ho kāinga, pea mei he fale ʻo hoʻo tamai, ki ha fonua te u fakahā kiate koe: Pea te u fakatupu ʻiate koe ha puleʻanga lahi, pea te u tāpuakiʻi koe, pea ngaohi ho hingoa ke lahi; pea te ke hoko ko e tāpuaki: Pea te u fakamonūʻia, ʻakinautolu ʻe tāpuakiʻi koe, pea fakamalaʻia ia ʻe kapeʻi koe: pea ʻe monūʻia ʻiate koe ʻae ngaahi faʻahinga kotoa pē ʻo māmani.” Ko ia naʻe ʻalu ʻa ʻEpalame, ʻo hangē ko e folofola ʻa Sihova kiate ia; pea ʻalu ʻa Lote mo ia: pea naʻe fitungofulu ma nima taʻu ʻae motuʻa ʻo ʻEpalame ʻi heʻene ʻalu mei Halani. Pea naʻe ʻave ʻe ʻEpalame ʻa hono ʻunoho ko Selai, mo Lote ko e foha ʻo hono tokoua, mo e nau ngaahi meʻa kotoa pē kuo nau tānaki, mo e kakai kuo nau maʻu ʻi Halani; pea naʻa nau ʻalu atu ke fononga ki he fonua ko Kēnani; pea naʻa nau hoko ai ki he fonua ko Kēnani.
¶ Pea naʻe ʻalu atu ʻa ʻEpalame ʻi he fonua ki he potu ʻo Sikemi, ki he potu ʻakauʻia ʻo Mole. Pea ko e kakai Kēnani naʻe ʻi he fonua ʻi he kuonga ko ia. Pea naʻe hā mai ʻa Sihova kia ʻEpalame, ʻo ne pehē, “Te u foaki ʻae fonua ni ki ho hako:” pea naʻe fokotuʻu ai ʻe ia ʻae ʻesifeilaulau kia Sihova, ʻaia naʻe hā kiate ia. Pea naʻe hiki ia mei ai ki ha moʻunga ʻi he potu hahake ʻo Peteli, pea ne fokotuʻu hono fale fehikitaki, ʻoku ʻi hihifo ʻa Peteli, mo ʻAi ʻi hahake: pea ne fokotuʻu ai ʻae ʻesifeilaulau kia Sihova, pea ui ʻe ia ki he huafa ʻo Sihova. Pea naʻe fononga ʻa ʻEpalame, ʻo ne kei ʻalu atu ki he feituʻu tonga.
10 ¶ Pea naʻe hoko ʻae honge ʻi he fonua: pea naʻe ʻalu hifo ʻa ʻEpalame ki ʻIsipite ke nofo ai: he kuo lahi ʻae honge ʻi he fonua. 11 Pea naʻe pehē, ʻi heʻene hoko ʻo ofi atu ki ʻIsipite, naʻe pehē ʻe ia kia Selai ko hono ʻunoho, “Vakai mai, ʻoku ou ʻilo ko e fefine hoihoifua koe ke sio ki ai: 12 Pea ko ia, ka mamata ʻae kakai ʻIsipite kiate koe, te nau pehē, ‘Ko hono ʻunoho eni:’ pea te nau tāmateʻi au, ka te nau fakamoʻui koe. 13 ‌ʻOku ou kole kiate koe, ke ke pehē, ko hoku tuofefine koe: kae lelei ai au koeʻuhi ko koe; pea ʻe moʻui ʻa hoku laumālie koeʻuhi ko koe.”
14 ¶ Pea naʻe pehē, ʻi he ʻalu atu ʻa ʻEpalame ki ʻIsipite, naʻe vakai ʻe he kakai ʻIsipite ki he hoihoifua ʻaupito ʻoe fefine. 15 Naʻe mamata foki kiate ia ʻae houʻeiki ʻa Felo, pea naʻa nau fakaongolelei ia kia Felo: pea naʻe ʻave ʻae fefine ki he fale ʻo Felo. 16 Pea naʻe fai lelei ʻe ia kia ʻEpalame koeʻuhi ko ia: pea naʻa ne maʻu ʻae fanga sipi, mo e fanga manu, mo e fanga ʻasi tangata, mo e kau tamaioʻeiki, mo e kau kaunanga, mo e fanga ʻasi fefine, mo e fanga kāmeli. 17 Pea naʻe tautea ʻe Sihova ʻa Felo mo hono fale ʻaki ʻae ngaahi hangatāmaki lahi koeʻuhi ko Selai ko e ʻunoho ʻo ʻEpalame. 18 Pea naʻe ui ʻa Felo kia ʻEpalame, ʻo ne pehē, “Ko e hā eni kuo ke fai kiate au? Ko e hā naʻe ʻikai ai te ke tala mai ko ho ʻunoho ia? 19 Ko e hā naʻa ke pehē ai, ‘Ko hoku tuofefine eni?’ Ne u meimei maʻu ia ko e ʻunoho kiate au; pea ko eni, vakai ki ho ʻunoho, ʻave ia pea ke ʻalu.” 20 Pea naʻe fonosi ʻe Felo ki heʻene kau tangata koeʻuhi ko ia: pea naʻa nau fekau ia ke ʻalu, mo hono ʻunoho, mo ia kotoa pē naʻa ne maʻu.
