1 ʻOku fakatupu ʻe Siuta ʻa ʻEa, mo ʻOnani, mo Sila. 6 Ko e fakamaau ʻa ʻEa mo Tema. 8 Ko e hia ʻa ʻOnani. 11 ʻOku tatali ʻa Tema kia Sila. 13 ʻOku ne kākaaʻi ʻa Siuta. 27 ʻOku ne fanauʻi ʻae māhanga ko Felesi mo Selaa.
Pea ʻi he ngaahi ʻaho ko ia, naʻe hoko ʻo pehē, naʻe ʻalu ʻa Siuta mei hono ngaahi tokoua, pea afe ia ki ha taha ʻi he kakai ʻAtulama, ko ʻIla hono hingoa. Pea mamata ai ʻa Siuta ki he ʻofefine ʻoe Kēnani ʻe tokotaha, ko Suaa hono hingoa: pea ne maʻu ia, pea ʻalu kiate ia ʻo na mohe. Pea feitama ia, mo fāʻeleʻi ʻae tama pea ne ui hono hingoa ho ʻEa. Pea toe feitama ia, pea fāʻeleʻi ʻae tama; pea ne ui hono hingoa ko ʻOnani Pea toe feitama foki ia; pea fāʻeleʻi ʻae tama; pea ne ui hono hingoa ko Sila pea naʻe ʻi Kesipi ia ʻi heʻene fanauʻi ia. Pea fili ʻe Siuta ʻae ʻunoho kia ʻEa, ko hono ʻuluaki, pea ko Tema hono hingoa. Pea naʻe anga kovi ʻa ʻEa, ko e ʻuluaki foha ʻo Siuta, ʻi he ʻao ʻo Sihova; pea naʻe tāmateʻi ia ʻe Sihova. Pea pehē ʻe Siuta kia ʻOnani, “ʻAlu ko e ki he ʻunoho ʻo ho taʻokete, pea ke mali mo ia, mo ke fakatupu ai ʻae hako ki ho taʻokete.” Pea naʻe ʻilo ʻe ʻOnani ʻe ʻikai ʻiate ia ʻae hako; pea ʻi heʻene ʻalu ki he ʻunoho ʻo hono taʻokete, naʻa ne huaʻi ia ki he kelekele, telia naʻa foaki ʻe ia ʻae hako ki hono taʻokete. 10 Pea naʻe kovi kia Sihova ʻae meʻa naʻa ne fai: ko ia, naʻa ne tāmateʻi mo ia foki. 11 Pea fekau ʻe Siuta kia Tema ko hono ʻofefine ʻi he fono ʻo pehē, “Ke ke nofo ʻatā pe koe, ʻi he fale ʻo hoʻo tamai, ke ʻoua ke tupu hoku foha ko Sila;” he naʻe pehē ʻe ia, “Telia naʻa mate foki ia, ʻo hangē ko hono ongo taʻokete.” Pea ʻalu ʻa Tema ʻo nofo ʻi he fale ʻo ʻene tamai.
12 ¶ Pea fuoloa ai, pea pekia ʻae taʻahine ʻa Suaa ko e ʻunoho ʻo Siuta: pea kuo fiemālie ʻa Siuta, pea ʻalu ia ki heʻene kau tangata kosi sipi ki Timinate, ʻaia mo hono kāinga ko ʻIla, ko e ʻAtulama. 13 Pea naʻe fakahā kia Tema, ʻo pehē, Vakai, ʻoku ʻalu ʻa hoʻo tamai ʻi he fono, ki Timinate ke kosi ʻene fanga sipi. 14 Pea ne tuku ʻe ia hono ngaahi kofu putu, pea pūlou ʻaki ʻe ia ʻae pūlou, ʻo ne tākai ʻaki ʻae kofu, pea nofo ia ʻi he potu ʻataʻatā naʻe ʻi he veʻe hala ki Timinate; he naʻe vakai ia, kuo tupu ʻa Sila, ka ʻoku teʻeki ai ʻatu ia kiate ia, ke na ʻunoho. 15 Pea kuo mamata ʻa Siuta, kiate ia, naʻa ne mahalo ko e fefine angahala ia, he koeʻuhi kuo pūlou hono mata. 16 Pea afe ia kiate ia ʻi he hala, ʻo ne pehē, “Ko eni, ʻoku ou kole kiate koe, tuku ke u ʻalu atu kiate koe;” (he naʻe ʻikai te ne ʻilo ko hono ʻofefine ia ʻi he fono). Pea pehēange ʻe ia, “Ko e hā te ke tuku mai kiate au, koeʻuhi ke ke haʻu kiate au?” 17 Pea pehē ia, “Te u fekau ke ʻomi ha ʻuhiki mei he fanga manu,” pea pehē ʻe ia, “Pea te ke tuku mai ha fakamoʻoni, kaeʻoua ke ke ʻomi ia?” 18 Pea pehē ʻe ia, “Ko e hā te u tuku kiate koe?” Pea talaange ʻe ia, “Ko ho mama, mo ho lelu, pea mo ho tokotoko ʻoku ʻi ho nima.” Pea ne ʻatu ia kiate ia, pea ʻalu atu ia kiate ia, pea feitama ia kiate ia. 19 Pea tuʻu hake ia ʻo ʻalu mei ai, pea ne tuku ʻene pūlou meiate ia, ʻo toe ai hono ngaahi kofu putu. 20 Pea fekau ʻe Siuta ke ʻave ʻae ʻuhikiʻi kosi ʻi he nima ʻa hono kāinga ko e ʻAtulama, koeʻuhi ke ne maʻu ʻae fakamoʻoni mei he nima ʻoe fefine; ka naʻe ʻikai te ne faʻa ʻilo ia. 21 Pea fehuʻi ia ki he kau tangata ʻoe potu ko ia, ʻo pehē, “Ko e fē ʻae fefine angahala naʻe ʻi he potu hala ni?” Pea nau pehē, naʻe ʻikai ha fefine angahala ʻi he potu ni. 22 Pea toe ʻalu ia kia Siuta, ʻo ne pehē, “ʻOku ʻikai te u ʻilo ia; pea ʻoku pehē foki ʻe he kau tangata ʻoe potu, naʻe ʻikai ha fefine angahala ʻi he potu ko ia.” 23 Pea pehē ʻe Siuta, “Tuku ke ne maʻu, ia maʻana, telia naʻa tau mā ai; vakai, naʻaku fekau ke ʻave ʻae ʻuhiki manu ni, pea ʻoku ʻikai te ke ʻilo ia.”
24 ¶ Pea hili ʻae māhina ʻe tolu nai, naʻe fakahā kia Siuta, ʻo pehē, “Kuo fai angahala ʻe Tema, ko ho ʻofefine ʻi he fono; pea vakai, ʻoku feitama foki ia ʻi he feʻauaki.” Pea pehē ʻe Siuta; “Taki mai ia, ke tutu ia.” 25 Pea kuo nau taki mai ia, pea fekau ia ki heʻene tamai ʻi he fono, ʻo pehē, “Kuo u feitama ki he tangata ʻoku ʻaʻana ʻae meʻa ni: pea ne pehē, Ke ke vakai, pe ʻoku ʻa hai ʻae maama ni mo e lelu, mo e tokotoko ni?” 26 Pea fakamoʻoni ʻe Siuta, ʻo ne pehē, “ʻOku tonuhia lahi ia ʻia au: koeʻuhi naʻe ʻikai te u foaki ia ki hoku foha ko Sila.” Pea naʻe ʻikai te ne taʻeʻiloʻi ia.
27 ¶ Pea naʻe hoko, ʻo pehē, ʻi heʻene langā, pea vakai, naʻe ai ʻae māhanga ʻi hono manāva. 28 Pea ʻi heʻene langā naʻe tuku kituʻa ʻe he tokotaha hono nima, pea nonoʻo ki ai ʻe he māʻuli ʻae filo kulokula, ʻo ne pehē, naʻe fuofua haʻu eni. 29 Pea ʻi heʻene toe toʻo atu hono nima, pea vakai, naʻe haʻu hono tokoua; pea pehē ʻe he māʻuli, “Naʻe fēfeeʻi hao ʻoho mai koe ke ʻiate koe ʻae motuhi ni, ko ia naʻa ne ui hono hingoa ko Felesi.” 30 Pea toki haʻu hono tokoua, ʻaia naʻe ʻi hono nima ʻae filo kulokula, pea ne ui hono hingoa ko Selaa.
