NAʻE hoko ʻae folofola ʻa Sihova kia Hosea, ko e foha ʻo Peli, ʻi he ngaahi ʻaho ʻo ʻUsia, mo Sotame, mo ʻAhasi, mo Hesekaia, ko e ngaahi tuʻi ʻo Siuta, pea ʻi he ngaahi ʻaho ʻo Selopoami ko e foha ʻo Soasi, ko e tuʻi ʻo ʻIsileli. Ko hono kamataʻanga ʻoe folofola ʻa Sihova ia Hosea. Pea naʻe pehē ʻe Sihova kia Hosea, “ʻAlu, ʻo ʻomi kiate koe ha ʻunoho mei he feʻauaki mo e fānau ʻae feʻauaki: he kuo fai ʻe he fonua ʻae feʻauaki lahi, ʻonau mahuʻi meia Sihova. ” Pea naʻe ʻalu ia ʻo ne ʻomi ʻa Komela, ko e ʻofefine ʻo Tipilemi; pea naʻe tuituʻia ia mo fanauʻi ha tama tangata kiate ia. Pea naʻe pehē ʻe Sihova kiate ia, “Ke ke ui hono hingoa ko Sesilili; he ʻoku toetoe siʻi, pea te u totongi ʻae toto ʻo Sesilili ki he fale ʻo Sehu, pea te u fakangata ʻae puleʻanga ʻoe fale ʻo ʻIsileli. Pea ʻe hoko ʻi he ʻaho ko ia te u fesiʻi ʻae kaufana ʻa ʻIsileli, ʻi he teleʻa ʻo Sesilili.”
¶ Pea naʻe toe tuituʻia ia, pea fanauʻi ha tama fefine. Pea naʻe pehē ʻe he ʻOtua kiate ia, “Ke ke ui hono hingoa ko Loluhama: koeʻuhi ʻe ʻikai te u toe ʻaloʻofa ki he fale ʻo ʻIsileli, ka te u mātuʻaki ʻave ʻakinautolu. Ka te u ʻaloʻofa ki he fale ʻo Siuta, pea te u fakamoʻui kinautolu ʻia Sihova ko e ʻOtua, ka ʻe ʻikai te u fakamoʻui ʻaki kinautolu ʻae kaufana, pe ko e heletā, pe ko e tau, pe ko e fanga hoosi, pe ko e kau tangata heka hoosi.”
¶ Pea hili ʻene fakamāvae ʻa Loluhama, naʻa ne tuituʻia pea fāʻeleʻi ha tama tangata. Pea naʻe toki pehē ʻe he ʻOtua , “Ke ke ui hono hingoa ko Loami: he ‘ʻoku ʻikai ko hoku kakai’ ʻakimoutolu, pea ʻoku ʻikai ko homou ʻOtua au.
10 ¶ Ka ko hono tokolahi ʻoe fānau ʻa ʻIsileli, ʻe hangē ko e ʻoneʻone ʻoe tahi ʻaia ʻe ʻikai faʻa fua pe lau; pea ʻe hoko ʻi he potu naʻe pehē kiate kinautolu, ‘ʻOku ʻikai ko hoku kakai ʻakimoutolu,’ ʻe pehē ʻi ai kiate kinautolu, ‘Ko e ngaahi foha ʻakimoutolu ʻoe ʻOtua moʻui.’ 11 Pea ʻe toki tānaki fakataha ʻae fānau ʻa Siuta mo e fānau ʻa ʻIsileli, pea ʻe tuʻutuʻuni ha ʻulu pe taha moʻonautolu, pea te nau haʻu mei he fonua: koeʻuhi ʻe lahi ʻae ʻaho ʻo Sesilili.
