1 Ko e tēngihia ʻo Sēkope. 4 Kuo fakaʻataʻatā ʻe Felo ʻa Siosefa ke ʻalu ʻo fai ʻae putu. 7 Ko e putu. 15 ʻOku fakafiemālieʻi ʻe Siosefa ʻa hono kāinga ʻi heʻenau hū kiate ia. 22 Ko hono motuʻa 23 ʻOku ne mamata ki hono hako ʻo aʻu ki hono tolu ʻoe toʻutangata 24 ʻOku ne kikite ki hono kāinga ki heʻenau toe foki atu. 25 ʻOku ne fai ʻae fuakava mo kinautolu ki hono ngaahi hui. 26 ʻOku ne pekia, pea ʻoku fakatolongaʻi hono sino.
Pea tōmapeʻe ʻa Siosefa ki he mata ʻo ʻene tamai, ʻo tangi kiate ia, mo uma kiate ia. Pea fekau ʻe Siosefa ki heʻene kau tangata faitoʻo, ke nau fakatolongaʻi ʻene tamai; pea naʻe fakatolonga ʻa ʻIsileli ʻe he kau faitoʻo. Pea naʻe fai ʻae ʻaho ʻe fāngofulu koeʻuhi ko ia; he ko hono ngaahi ʻaho ia kiate kinautolu ʻoku fakatolongaʻi; pea naʻe tangi ʻae kakai ʻIsipite ʻi he ʻaho ʻe fitungofulu koeʻuhi ko ia. Pea ʻi he hili ʻae ngaahi ʻaho fakamamahi, naʻe lea ʻa Siosefa ki he fale ʻo Felo, ʻo pehē, “Ko eni, kapau kuo u lelei ʻi homou ʻao, ʻoku ou kole kiate kimoutolu ke mou lea ʻi he ʻao ʻo Felo, ʻo pehē, Naʻe puleʻi au ʻe heʻeku tamai ke u fuakava, ʻo pehē, Vakai, teu mate: pea te ke tanu au ʻi he faʻitoka naʻaku ngaohi maʻaku ʻi he fonua ko Kēnani. Pea ko eni ʻoku ou kole kiate koe, tuku ke u ʻalu ʻo tanu ʻeku tamai, pea te u toe haʻu.” Pea naʻe pehē ʻe Felo, “Ke ke ʻalu ʻo tanu hoʻo tamai, ʻo hangē ko e fuakava naʻa ne fekau ke ke fai.”
¶ Pea naʻe ʻalu ʻa Siosefa ke tanu ʻene tamai; pea naʻe ʻalu mo ia ʻae kau matāpule kotoa pē ʻa Felo, mo e kau mātuʻa ʻo hono fale, mo e kau mātuʻa ʻo ʻIsipite, Pea mo e fale kotoa pē ʻo Siosefa, mo hono ngaahi tokoua, mo e fale ʻo ʻene tamai; ko e nau tamaiki, mo e nau fanga manu, mo e nau fanga sipi, naʻa nau tuku pe ʻi he fonua ko Koseni. Pea naʻe ʻalu mo ia ʻae ngaahi saliote, mo e kau tangata heka hoosi; ko e kakai tokolahi ʻaupito. 10 Pea naʻa nau hoko ki he hahaʻanga uite ʻi ʻEtati, ʻaia ʻoku ʻituʻa Sioatani, pea nau tangi ai ʻi he tangi lahi mo fakamamahi: pea naʻa ne fai ʻae tangi ki heʻene tamai ʻi he ʻaho ʻe fitu. 11 Pea kuo mamata ʻe he kakai ʻoe fonua, ʻaia ko e kakai Kēnani, ki he tangi ʻi he potu ʻi ʻEtati, pea nau lea ʻo pehē, “Ko e tangi fakamamahi eni, ki he kakai ʻIsipite;” ko ia naʻe ui ai hono hingoa ʻo ia ko ʻEpelimisilemi, ʻaia ʻoku ʻituʻa Sioatani. 12 Pea naʻe fai ʻe hono ngaahi foha kiate ia, ʻo hangē ko ʻene fekau. 13 He naʻe fata ia ʻe hono ngaahi foha ki he fonua ko Kēnani, ʻo nau tanu ia ʻi he ʻana ʻi he ngoue ko Makipila ʻoku hanga ki Mamili, ʻaia naʻe fakatau maʻana ʻe ʻEpalahame, mo e ngoue ko e tanuʻanga, meia ʻEfilone ʻoe faʻahinga ʻo Heti. 14 Pea naʻe toe liu mai ʻa Siosefa ki ʻIsipite, hili ʻae tanu ʻo ʻene tamai, ʻaia mo hono ngaahi tokoua, mo kinautolu kotoa pē naʻe ʻalu mo ia ke tanu ʻene tamai.
15 ¶ Pea kuo mamata ʻe he ngaahi tokoua ʻo Siosefa, kuo pekia ʻa ʻenau tamai, naʻa nau pehē, “E fehiʻa nai ʻa Siosefa kiate kitautolu, mo totongi kiate kitautolu ʻae kovi kotoa pē naʻa tau fai kiate ia.” 16 Pea naʻa nau fekau ʻae tokotaha ke ʻalu kia Siosefa ʻo lea pehē, naʻe fekau ʻe hoʻo tamai ʻi heʻene kei moʻui, ʻo pehē, 17 “Te mou lea pehē kia Siosefa, ‘ʻOku ou kole ni kiate koe, fakamolemole ʻae kovi ʻa ho ngaahi tokoua mo ʻenau fai hala;’ he naʻa nau fai kovi kiate koe: pea ko eni, ʻoku mau kole kiate koe, fakamolemole ʻae hia ʻae kau tamaioʻeiki ʻae ʻOtua ʻo hoʻo tamai.” Pea naʻe tangi ʻa Siosefa ʻi heʻenau lea kiate ia. 18 Pea ʻalu hono ngaahi tokoua ʻo foʻohifo ʻi hono ʻao; ʻo nau lea pehē, “Vakai mai, ko hoʻo kau tamaioʻeiki ʻakimautolu.” 19 Pea pehēange ʻe Siosefa kiate kinautolu, “ʻOua te mou manavahē; he ko e fetongi au ʻoe ʻOtua? 20 Ka ko kimoutolu, naʻa mou mahalo kovi kiate au, ka naʻe puleʻi ia ʻe he ʻOtua ke lelei, koeʻuhi ke fakahoko ʻaia ʻoku fai he ʻaho ni, ke fakahaofi ʻae moʻui ʻae kakai tokolahi. 21 Pea ko eni, ke ʻoua naʻa mou manavahē; he te u tauhi ʻakinautolu mo hoʻomou tamaiki.” Pea naʻa ne fakafiemālieʻi ʻakinautolu, ʻo lea ʻofa kiate kinautolu.
22 ¶ Pea naʻe nofo ʻa Siosefa ʻi ʻIsipite, ʻa ia, mo e fale ʻo ʻene tamai; pea ko e moʻui ʻa Siosefa ko e taʻu ʻe teau, mo e taʻu ʻe hongofulu. 23 Pea naʻe mamata ʻa Siosefa ki he fānau ʻa ʻIfalemi, ko e toʻutangata ʻe tolu ko e fānau foki ʻa Mekili ko e foha ʻo Manase, naʻe ʻomi ʻo tuku ki he funga tui ʻo Siosefa. 24 Pea naʻe pehē ʻe Siosefa ki hono ngaahi tokoua, “Teu mate au; pea ko e moʻoni ʻe ʻaʻahi ʻae ʻOtua kiate kimoutolu, ʻo ʻave ʻakinautolu mei he fonua ni, ki he fonua naʻa ne fuakava ki ai kia ʻEpalahame, mo ʻAisake, pea mo Sēkope.” 25 Pea naʻe fai kia Siosefa ʻae fuakava ʻe he fānau ʻa ʻIsileli, ʻo pehē, “Ko e moʻoni ʻe ʻaʻahi ʻae ʻOtua kiate kimoutolu, pea te mou fetuku hoku ngaahi hui mei heni.” 26 Pea naʻe pekia ai ʻa Siosefa, kuo teau taʻu, mo e taʻu ʻe hongofulu hono motuʻa: pea naʻa nau fakatolongaʻi ia, pea nau ai ia ki he puha ʻi ʻIsipite.
