1 Ko e taʻu ʻe toko tolu mano mo e toko ua afe ʻa Kitione, ʻoku fakatokosiʻi ia ke toko tolungeau. 9 ʻOku tokoni ia ʻe he misi mo hono fakamatala ʻoe foʻi mā paʻale. 16 Ko ʻene ngāue poto ʻoe ngaahi meʻalea mo e ngaahi maama mo e ngaahi ipu. 24 ʻOku maʻu ʻe he kakai ʻIfalemi ʻa Olepi mo Siipi.
Pea naʻe tuʻu hengihengi hake ʻa Selupeali, ʻaia ko Kitione, mo e kakai kotoa pē naʻe ʻiate ia, ʻonau ʻapitanga fakataha ʻi he veʻe vai ʻo Haloti: pea naʻe ʻi he potu tokelau ʻa ʻetau lahi ʻoe kakai Mitiane, ʻo ofi ki he tafungofunga ʻo Mole, ʻi he teleʻa. Pea naʻe pehē ʻe Sihova kia Kitione, “Ko e kakai ʻoku ʻiate koe kuo tokolahi fau, ke tuku ki honau nima ʻae kakai Mitiane, telia naʻa vikiviki ai ʻa ʻIsileli kiate au, ʻo pehē, Ko hoku nima pē ʻoʻoku kuo ne fakamoʻui au. Pea ko eni, ke ke ʻalu, pea kalanga ʻi he telinga ʻoe kakai, ʻo pehē, ‘Ko ia fulipē ʻoku vaivai mo manavahē, ke foki ia ʻo ʻalu vave mei he moʻunga ko Kiliati.’ ” Pea naʻe foki ʻo ʻalu ʻae toko ua mano mo e toko ua afe ʻoe kakai; pea naʻe toe ʻae toko mano. Pea naʻe folofola ʻa Sihova kia Kitione, “ʻOku kei tokolahi fau ʻae kakai: ke ke ʻomi ʻakinautolu ki he vai, pea te u ʻahiʻahiʻi ʻakinautolu ʻi ai maʻau: pea ʻe pehē, ko ia ʻoku ou pehē ai kiate koe, Ko eni ia ʻe ʻalu mo koe, ko ia ia te mo ō: pea ko ia fulipē ʻoku ou pehē ai kiate koe, Ko eni ia ʻe ʻikai ʻalu mo koe, ko ia ia ʻe ʻikai te mo ō.” Ko ia ne ʻave ʻae kakai ki he vai pea naʻe folofola ʻa Sihova kia Kitione, “Ko ia fulipē ʻoku ʻemo ʻae vai ʻaki hono ʻelelo, ʻo hangē ko e ʻemo ʻae kulī, te ke tuku kehe ia: pea ʻe pehē mo ia fulipē ʻoku punou ʻo tūʻulutui ki hono tui ke inu.” Pea ko hono lau ʻokinautolu naʻe ʻemo, ʻo ʻai honau nima ki honau ngutu, ko e kau tangata ʻe toko tolungeau: ka ko hono toe ʻoe kakai kotoa pē naʻe punou hifo ki honau tui ke inu ʻae vai. Pea naʻe pehē ʻe Sihova kia Kitione, “ʻI he kau tangata ʻe toko tolungeau ʻaia naʻe ʻemo te u fakamoʻui ʻakimoutolu, pea te u tukuange ʻae kakai Mitiane ki ho nima: pea tuku ʻae kakai kehe kotoa pē kenau ʻalu taki taha ki hono potu.” Ko ia naʻe toʻo ai ʻe he kakai ʻae meʻakai ʻi honau nima, mo ʻenau meʻalea: pea ne fekau hono toe ʻo ʻIsileli ʻae tangata taki taha ki hono fale fehikitaki, kae taʻofi ʻae kau tangata ʻe toko tolungeau ko ia: pea naʻe ʻi lalo ʻiate ia ʻae tau lahi ʻo Mitiane ʻi he teleʻa.
¶ Pea naʻe hoko ʻo pehē ʻi he pō ko ia, naʻe folofola ʻa Sihova kiate ia, “Tuʻu hake, pea ke ʻalu hifo ki honau matatau; he kuo u tukuange ia ki ho nima. 10 Pea kapau ʻoku ke manavahē ke ʻalu hifo, mo ō mo Fiula ko ho tauhi ki he tau lahi: 11 Pea ke fanongo ki he meʻa ʻoku nau lau: pea hili ia ʻe mālohi ho nima ke ke ʻalu hifo ai ki he tau.” Pea naʻe ʻalu hifo ia mo Fiula ko hono tauhi ki he potu ʻituʻa ʻi he kau tangata toʻo mahafutau naʻe ʻi he tau. 12 Pea naʻe mafola atu ʻi he teleʻa ʻae kakai Mitiane, mo e kakai ʻAmaleki, mo e fānau kotoa pē ʻoe potu hahake ʻo hangē ko e fanga heʻe hono toko lahi: pea ko ʻenau fanga kāmeli naʻe taʻefaʻalaua, ʻo hangē ko hono lahi ʻoe ʻoneʻone ʻi he matātahi. 13 Pea ʻi he hoko ki ai ʻa Kitione, vakai, naʻe ʻi ai ʻae tangata naʻe fakahā ʻene misi ki hono tokoua, ʻo ne pehē, “Vakai, ne u misi ʻae misi, pea vakai, naʻe tō mai ha foʻi mā paʻale ki he tau lahi ʻo Mitiane, pea naʻe lave ia ki ha fale fehikitaki, pea holo ai, ʻo fulihi, pea naʻe holo ki lalo ʻae fale.” 14 Pea naʻe lea hono tokoua, ʻo pehē, “ʻOku ʻikai ha meʻa kehe eni, ka ko e heletā ʻa Kitione ko e foha ʻo Soasi, ko e tangata ʻIsileli: he kuo tuku ki hono nima ʻe he ʻOtua ʻa Mitiane, mo e tau kotoa pē.”
15 ¶ Pea ʻi he fanongo ʻa Kitione ki he fakahā ʻae misi, mo hono ʻuhinga ʻo ia, pea pehē, naʻe hū ia, pea toe liu atu ki he tau ʻa ʻIsileli, ʻo ne pehē, “Tuʻu hake he kuo tuku ʻe Sihova ki homou nima ʻae tau lahi ʻo Mitiane.” 16 Pea naʻa ne vahe tolu ʻae kau tangata ʻe tolungeau ki he vāhenga kongakau ʻe tolu, ʻo ne ʻai ʻae meʻalea ʻi he nima ʻoe tangata kotoa pē, mo e ngeʻesi ipu, mo e maama ʻi he loto ipu. 17 Pea naʻe pehē ʻe ia kiate kinautolu, “Sio mai kiate au, pea faʻifaʻitaki mai: pea vakai, ʻo kau ka hoko ki he potu ʻituʻa ʻoe ʻapitanga, pea ʻe pehē, ko ia te u fai ʻeau, ʻe pehē pe hoʻomou fai. 18 ‌ʻO kau ka ifi ʻeau ʻae meʻalea, ʻeau mo kinautolu kotoa pē ʻoku ʻiate au, mou ifi meʻalea ʻakimoutolu foki ʻi he potu kotoa pē ʻoe ʻapitanga kotoa pē, ʻo lea pehē, ‘Ko e heletā ʻa Sihova, pea mo Kitione.’ ”
19 ¶ Ko ia naʻe hoko ʻa Kitione mo e kau tangata ʻe toko teau naʻe ʻiate ia, ki he tuʻa ʻapitanga ʻi he kamataʻanga ʻoe lakanga leʻo tuʻuapō: pea kuo nau toki fakanofo ʻae kau leʻo pea naʻa nau ifi ʻae ngaahi meʻalea, pea maumau ʻae ngaahi ipu naʻe ʻi honau nima. 20 Pea naʻe ifi meʻalea ʻe he kongakau ʻe tolu, pea maumau ʻenau ngaahi ipu, kae puke ʻae ngaahi maama ʻi honau nima, mo e meʻalea honau nima toʻomataʻu ke ifi ʻaki: pea naʻa nau kalanga, “Ko e heletā ʻa Sihova, pea mo Kitione.” 21 Pea naʻa nau tuʻu ʻae tangata taki taha ʻi hono potu ʻo takatakai ʻi he ʻapitanga: pea naʻe feleleʻi ʻae tau kotoa pē, pea tangi, mo hola. 22 Pea naʻe ifi ʻaki ʻae meʻalea ʻe he toko tolungeau, pea naʻe fai ʻe Sihova ke ʻai ʻe he tangata kotoa pē ʻene heletā ki hono tokoua ʻi he tau kotoa pē: pea naʻe hola ʻae tau ki Pete-Sita ʻi Selelati, pea ki he potu ʻo ʻEpeli-Mihola, ʻo aʻu ki Tapati. 23 Pea naʻe fakataha ʻae kau tangata ʻo ʻIsileli mei Nafitali, pea mei ʻAseli, pea mei Manase kotoa pē, ʻonau tuli ki he kakai Mitiane.
24 ¶ Pea naʻe fekau ʻe Kitione ʻae kau talafekau ki he ngaahi potu kotoa pē ʻoe moʻunga ko ʻIfalemi, ʻo pehē, “Mou ʻalu hifo ʻo tauʻi ʻae kakai Mitiane pea muʻomuʻa atu ke maʻu ʻiate kinautolu ʻae ngaahi vai ʻo aʻu ki Petepala mo Sioatani.” 25 Pea naʻa nau fakapōpula ʻae houʻeiki ʻe toko ua ʻoe kakai Mitiane, ko Olepi mo Siipi; pea nau tāmateʻi ʻa Olepi ʻi he fungamaka ko Olepi, pea nau tāmateʻi ʻa Siipi ʻi he tataʻoʻanga uaine ʻo Siipi, ʻonau tuli ʻa Mitiane, pea naʻa nau ʻomi ʻae ʻulu ʻo Olepi mo Siipi kia Kitione, ʻi he kauvai ʻe taha ʻo Sioatani.
