1 Kuo fekau ʻe Sēkope hono ngaahi foha ʻe toko hongofulu ke fakatau koane mei ʻIsipite. 16 Kuo fakapōpulaʻi ʻakinautolu ʻe Siosefa, 18 ʻOku tukuange ʻakinautolu ʻi he pehē, te nau ʻomi ʻa Penisimani. 21 Kuo nau mamahi koeʻuhi ko Siosefa. 24 Kuo taʻofi ʻa Simione ko e fetongi. 25 Kuo nau foki mo e koane, mo e nau paʻanga. 29 Ko e nau fakamatala kia Sēkope. 36 ʻOku ʻikai ke loto ʻa Sēkope ke ʻalu ʻa Penisimani.
Pea kuo mamata ʻe Sēkope ʻoku ai ʻae koane ʻi ʻIsipite, pea pehē ʻe Sēkope ki hono ngaahi foha, “Ko e hā ʻoku mou fesiofaki ai? Pea pehē ʻe ia, Vakai, kuo u fanongo ʻoku ai ʻae koane ʻi ʻIsipite: mou ʻalu ki ai, pea mou fakatau maʻatautolu mei ai; koeʻuhi ke tau moʻui, kae ʻikai mate.”
¶ Pea naʻe ʻalu ki ʻIsipite ke fakatau koane, ʻae ngaahi taʻokete ʻe toko hongofulu ʻo Siosefa. Ka ko Penisimani ko e tehina ʻo Siosefa, naʻe ʻikai tuku ia ʻe Sēkope ke ʻalu mo hono ngaahi taʻokete; he naʻa ne pehē; Telia naʻa tō ha kovi kiate ia. Pea haʻu ʻae ngaahi foha ʻo ʻIsileli ke fakatau ʻae koane mo kinautolu naʻe haʻu; he naʻe lahi ʻae honge ʻi he fonua ko Kēnani. Pea naʻe pule pe ʻa Siosefa ʻi he fonua, pea ko ia pe naʻe fakatau ki he kakai kotoa pē ʻoe fonua; pea haʻu ʻae ngaahi taʻokete ʻo Siosefa, ʻo nau tulolo mo honau mata ki he kelekele, ʻi hono ʻao. Pea mamata ʻa Siosefa ki hono ngaahi taʻokete, ʻo ne ʻilo ʻakinautolu, ka naʻe mata kehe ia kiate kinautolu, ʻo ne lea mālohi kiate kinautolu: pea ne pehē kiate kinautolu, “ʻOku mou haʻu mei fē?” Pea nau talaange, “Mei he fonua ko Kēnani, ke fakatau meʻakai.” Pea naʻe ʻilo ʻe Siosefa hono ngaahi taʻokete, ka naʻe ʻikai te nau ʻilo ia. Pea naʻe manatu ʻe Siosefa ki he ngaahi misi naʻa ne misi ʻaki kiate kinautolu, pea pehē ʻe ia kiate kinautolu, “Ko e kau mataki ʻakinautolu; kuo mou haʻu ke mamata ki he telefua ʻoe fonua.” 10 Pea nau talaange kiate ia, “ʻEiki ʻoku ʻikai, ka kuo haʻu ʻa hoʻo kau tamaioʻeiki ke fakatau meʻakai. 11 Ko e ngaahi foha ʻoe tangata pe taha ʻakimautolu kotoa pē: ko e kau tangata moʻoni ʻakimautolu, ʻoku ʻikai ko e kakai mataki ʻa hoʻo kau tamaioʻeiki.” 12 Pea pehē ʻe ia kiate kinautolu, “ʻIkai, ka kuo mou haʻu ke mamata ki he telefua ʻoe fonua.” 13 Pea naʻa nau pehē, “Ko hoʻo kau tamaioʻeiki, ko e kāinga ʻe toko hongofulu ma toko ua, ko e ngaahi foha ʻoe tangata pe taha ʻi he fonua ko Kēnani; pea vakai, ko e kimui, ʻoku ʻi he ʻemau tamai he ʻaho ni, pea ko e tokotaha kuo ʻikai.” 14 Pea pehē ʻe Siosefa kiate kinautolu, “Ko ia ia naʻaku lea ai kiate kimoutolu, ʻo pehē, ko e kau mataki ʻakinautolu. 15 E ʻahiʻahi kiate kimoutolu ʻaki ʻae meʻa ni; hangē ʻoku moʻui ʻa Felo, ʻe ʻikai te mou ʻalu ʻi heni, ʻo kapau ʻe ʻikai haʻu ki heni homou tehina. 16 Fekau homou tokotaha ke ne ʻalu ʻo ʻomi homou tehina, pea ʻe nofo pōpula ʻakinautolu, koeʻuhi ke fakamoʻoni ki hoʻomou ngaahi lea, pe ʻoku ai ha moʻoni ʻiate kimoutolu; ka ka ʻikai, hangē ʻoku moʻui ʻa Felo, ko e kau mataki ʻakinautolu.” 17 Pea naʻa ne tuku fakataha ʻakinautolu ki he fale fakapōpula, ʻi he ʻaho ʻe tolu. 18 Pea pehē ʻe Siosefa kiate kinautolu ʻi hono ʻaho tolu, “Mou fai eni, pea mou moʻui he ʻoku ou manavahē ki he ʻOtua; 19 Kapau ko e kau tangata angatonu ʻakinautolu, tuku ke haʻi homou tokotaha ʻi he fale ʻo homou pōpula: ka mou ʻalu ʻo fetuku ʻae koane telia ʻae honge ʻi homou ngaahi fale. 20 Ka mou ʻomi homou tehina kiate au; ko ia ʻe fakamoʻoni ai hoʻomou ngaahi lea, pea ʻe ʻikai te mou mate. Pea naʻa nau fai ia.”
21 ¶ Pea naʻa nau fealēleaʻaki ʻo pehē, “Ko e moʻoni, ʻoku tau kovi ko e meʻa ʻi hotau tehina, ko e meʻa ʻi heʻetau mamata ki he feinga ʻa hono laumālie, ʻi heʻene fakakole kiate kitautolu, ka naʻe ʻikai te tau fie tokanga kiate ia; ko ia kuo tō ai ʻae mamahi ni kiate kitautolu.” 22 Pea lea ʻa Lupeni kiate kinautolu, ʻo pehē, “ʻIkai ne u lea kiate kimoutolu, ʻo pehē, ʻoua naʻa mou fai hala ki he tamasiʻi, ka naʻe ʻikai te mou tokanga? Ko ia, vakai, ʻoku ʻeke foki ʻae totongi ʻo hono toto.” 23 Pea naʻe ʻikai te nau ʻilo ʻoku ʻilo ʻe Siosefa ʻenau lea; he naʻe lea ia kiate kinautolu ʻaki ʻae tangata hiki lea. 24 Pea naʻe foki atu ia ʻiate kinautolu ʻo tangi; pea toe haʻu ia kiate kinautolu, ke nau alea, pea naʻa ne toʻo ʻa Simione ʻiate kinautolu, ʻo haʻi ia ʻi honau ʻao.
25 ¶ Pea naʻe fekau ʻa Siosefa ke fakafonu ʻenau ngaahi tangai ʻi he koane, pea ke toe ai ki he tangai ʻae tangata taki taha, ʻene paʻanga, pea ke tuku kiate kinautolu ʻae ʻoho ke kai ʻi he hala; pea naʻe fai pehē ia kiate kinautolu. 26 Pea naʻa nau fakaheka ʻae koane ki heʻenau fanga asi, pea nau ʻalu. 27 Pea ʻi he toʻo ʻe honau tokotaha ʻene tangai ke ʻatu ʻae meʻakai ki heʻene ʻasi ʻi he fale talifononga, naʻe ʻilo ʻe ia ʻene ngaahi paʻanga; he vakai naʻe ʻi he ngutu ʻoe tangai ia. 28 Pea pehē ʻe ia ki hono ngaahi tokoua, “Kuo toe ʻomi ʻeku ngaahi paʻanga; he vakai, ʻoku ʻi he ngutu ʻo ʻeku tangai;” pea naʻe vaivai ai honau loto, pea nau manavahē, ʻo fepehēʻaki, “Ko e hā eni kuo fai ʻe he ʻOtua kiate kitautolu?”
29 ¶ Pea naʻa nau haʻu kia Sēkope ko e nau tamai ki he fonua ko Kēnani, ʻo nau fakahā kiate ia ʻae meʻa kotoa pē naʻe hoko kiate kinautolu; ʻo pehē, 30 “Ko e tangata ʻoku ʻeiki ʻi he fonua, naʻe lea mālohi kiate kimautolu, ʻo pehē, Ko e kau mataki ʻakinautolu ki he fonua. 31 Pea mau tala kiate ia, ko e kau tangata moʻoni ʻakimautolu; ʻoku ʻikai ko e kau mataki ʻakimautolu. 32 Ko e kāinga ʻe toko hongofulu ma toko ua ʻakimautolu, ko e ngaahi foha ʻoe mau tamai, ko e tokotaha ʻoku ʻikai, pea ko e kimui ʻoku ʻi he ʻemau tamai he ʻaho ni, ʻi he fonua ko Kēnani.” 33 Pea ko e tangata, ko e ʻeiki ʻoe fonua, naʻe pehē kiate kimautolu, “Te u ʻilo ʻi he meʻa ni, pe ko e kau tangata moʻoni ʻakinautolu; tuku mai homou tokoua ʻe tokotaha kiate au, pea mou ʻave ʻae meʻakai ki he honge ʻo homau ngaahi fale, pea mou ʻalu; 34 Pea mou ʻomi ki heni, homou tehina: ko ia te u ʻilo ai, ʻoku ʻikai ko e kau mataki ʻakinautolu, ka ko e kau tangata moʻoni: pea te u toe tuku ai kiate kimoutolu homou tokoua, pea te mou fakatau ʻi he fonua ni.”
35 ¶ Pea ʻi heʻenau lingi ʻenau ngaahi tangai, pea nau vakai, naʻe ʻilo taki taha ʻae tangata ʻene kato paʻanga ʻi he ngutu ʻo ʻene tangai: pea kuo mamata ʻakinautolu mo e nau tamai ki he ngaahi kato paʻanga, naʻa nau manavahē. 36 Pea pehē ʻe Sēkope ko e nau tamai kiate kinautolu, “Kuo mou fakamasiva au ʻi heʻeku fānau; kuo ʻikai ʻa Siosefa, pea kuo ʻikai mo Simione, pea te mou toe ʻave mo Penisimani; ʻoku kovi ʻae ngaahi meʻa ni kotoa pē kiate au.” 37 Pea lea ʻa Lupeni ki heʻene tamai, ʻo pehē, “Tāmateʻi hoku foha ʻe toko ua, ʻo kapau ʻe ʻikai te u toe ʻomi ia kiate koe; tuku mai ia ki hoku nima, pea te u toe ʻomi ia kiate koe.” 38 Pea pehē ʻe ia, “E ʻikai ʻalu hifo hoku foha mo kimoutolu, he kuo mate hono tokoua, pea ʻoku toe tokotaha pe ia; pea kapau ʻe hoko ha kovi kiate ia ʻi he hala ʻoku mou ʻalu ai, te mou ʻomi hoku ʻuluhinā ki he faʻitoka ʻi he mamahi.”
