Pea naʻe pehē ʻe he kau tangata ʻo ʻIfalemi kiate ia, “Ko e hā ʻae meʻa ni kuo ke fai, naʻe ʻikai te ke ui ʻakimautolu, ʻi hoʻo ʻalu ke tauʻi ʻae kakai Mitiane?” Pea naʻa nau lea mālohi kiate ia. Pea pehē ʻe ia kiate kinautolu, “Ko e hā ia kuo fai ʻeau, ke fakatatau ki he meʻa kuo fai ʻekimoutolu? ʻIkai kuo lelei lahi hake ʻae tufi ʻoe toenga kālepi ʻo ʻIfalemi ʻi he ututaʻu kātoa ʻa ʻApiesa? Kuo tukuange ʻe he ʻOtua ki homou nima ʻae ongo ʻeiki ʻo Mitiane ko Olepi mo Siipi: pea ko e hā ia te u mafai ʻeau, ke fakatatau mo kimoutolu?” Pea hili ʻene lea ko ia kiate kinautolu, naʻe ʻosi leva ʻenau ʻita kiate ia.
¶ Pea naʻe haʻu ʻa Kitione ki Sioatani, pea ʻalu ki he kauvai ʻe taha, ʻa ia, mo e kau tangata ʻe toko tolungeau naʻe ʻiate ia, naʻe vaivai kae tuli pē. Pea pehē ʻe ia ki he kau tangata ʻo Sukote, “ʻOku ou kole kiate kimoutolu, tuku mai ʻae ngaahi foʻi mā ki he kakai ʻoku muimui ʻiate au, he ʻoku nau vaivai, pea ʻoku ou tuli kia Sipa mo Salimuna, ko e ongo tuʻi ʻo Mitiane.”
¶ Pea naʻe pehē ʻe he houʻeiki ʻo Sukote, “He ʻoku ʻi ho nima ʻoʻou ʻae nima ʻo Sipa mo Salimuna koeʻuhi ke mau ʻatu ʻae ma ki hoʻo kau tau?” Pea naʻe pehē ʻe Kitione, “Ko ia ʻi he tuku ʻe Sihova ki hoku nima ʻa Sipa mo Salimuna, te u toki haha homou kakano ʻaki ʻae ngaahi ʻakau talatala ʻoe toafa mo e talatalaʻāmoa.”
¶ Pea naʻe ʻalu hake mei ai ia ki Penieli, ʻo ne lea tatau pe kiate kinautolu: pea naʻe tali ia ʻe he kau tangata ʻo Penieli ʻo hangē ko hono tali ia ʻe he kau tangata ʻa Sukote. Pea naʻe lea ia ki he kau tangata ʻo Penieli, ʻo pehē, “ʻI heʻeku toe haʻu ʻi he melino, te u holoki hifo ʻae fale māʻolunga ni.”
10 ¶ Pea naʻe ʻi Kalikoa ʻa Sipa mo Salimuna, mo honau ngaahi tau, ko e kau tangata ʻe tokotaha mano mo e toko nima afe nai, ko hono kātoa ia naʻe toe ʻi he ngaahi tau ʻoe fānau kotoa pē ʻoe potu hahake: he naʻe tō ʻae tokotaha kilu mo e toko ua mano ʻi he kau tangata naʻe unuhi ʻae heletā.
11 ¶ Pe naʻe ʻalu hake ʻa Kitione ʻi he hala ʻokinautolu naʻe nofo ʻi he ngaahi fale fehikitaki ʻi he potu hahake ki Nopa mo Sokipa, ʻo ne teʻia ʻae tau: he naʻe nofo fiemālie pē ʻae tau. 12 Pea ʻi he hola ʻa Sipa mo Salimuna, naʻe tuli ʻe ia ʻakinaua, ʻo ne maʻu ʻae ongo tuʻi ʻo Mitiane, ko Sipa mo Salimuna, ʻo ne veuveuki ʻa e tau kotoa.
13 ¶ Pea naʻe liu mai ʻa Kitione ko e foha ʻo Soasi mei he tau ʻoku teʻeki ai hopo hake ʻae laʻā. 14 Pea naʻa ne puke ʻae talavou ʻi he kakai ʻo Sukote, ʻo ne fehuʻi ʻiate ia: pea naʻa ne fakahā kiate ia ʻae houʻeiki ʻo Sukote, mo e kau mātuʻa ʻo ia, ʻio, ʻae kau tangata ʻe toko fitungofulu ma toko fitu. 15 Pea naʻe haʻu ia ki he kau tangata ʻo Sukote, ʻo ne pehē, “Vakai kia Sipa mo Salimuna, ʻaia naʻa mou manuki ai kiate au, ʻo pehē, Ko eni, he ʻoku ʻi ho nima ʻae nima ʻo Sipa mo Salimuna, koeʻuhi ke mau ʻatu ai ha mā ki ho kau tangata ʻoku vaivai?” 16 Pea naʻa ne ʻave ʻae kau mātuʻa ʻoe kolo, mo e ngaahi ʻakau talatala ʻoe toafa, mo e talatalaʻāmoa, pea ne ako ʻaki ia ʻae kau tangata ʻoe kolo. 17 Pea naʻa ne tā ʻo holoki hifo ʻae fale māʻolunga ʻo Penieli, ʻo ne tāmateʻi ʻae kau tangata ʻoe kolo.
18 ¶ Pea naʻe pehē ʻe ia kia Sipa mo Salimuna, “Ko e kau tangata fē ʻakinautolu naʻa mou tāmateʻi ʻi Tepoa? Pea naʻa na pehēange, Hangē ko koe, naʻe pehē pe ʻakinautolu: naʻe ngalingali tuʻi ʻakinautolu taki taha kotoa pē.” 19 Pea pehē ʻe ia, “Ko hoku ngaahi kāinga ʻakinautolu, ʻio, ko e ngaahi fānau ʻa ʻeku faʻē: ʻoku moʻui ʻa Sihova, ka ne mo fakamoʻui ʻakinautolu, pehē ʻe ʻikai te u tāmateʻi ʻakimoua.” 20 Pea pehē ʻe ia kia Sesa ko hono ʻuluaki tupu, “Tuʻu hake, ʻo tāmateʻi ʻakinaua.” Ka naʻe ʻikai unuhi ʻene heletā ʻe he tamasiʻi: he naʻe manavahē ia, koeʻuhi naʻe kei siʻi ia. 21 Pea naʻe pehē ʻe Sipa mo Salimuna, “Tuʻu ʻa koe, ʻo taaʻi ʻakimaua: he ʻoku hangē ko e tangata ʻoku pehē ʻene mālohi.” Pea naʻe tuʻu ʻa Kitione ʻo ne tāmateʻi ʻa Sipa mo Salimuna; ʻo ne toʻo ʻo ʻave ʻae ngaahi teunga naʻe ʻi he kia ʻo ʻena ongo kāmeli.
22 ¶ Pea naʻe pehē ai ʻe he kau tangata ʻo ʻIsileli kia Kitione, “Ke ke pule koe kiate kimautolu, ʻa koe mo ho foha, mo e foha ʻo ho foha: he kuo ke fakamoʻui ʻakimautolu mei he nima ʻo Mitiane.” 23 Pea naʻe pehē ʻe Kitione kiate kinautolu, “ʻE ʻikai te u pule kiate kimoutolu, pea ʻe ʻikai pule ʻa hoku foha kiate kimoutolu: ko Sihova ko ia ia ʻe pule kiate kimoutolu.”
24 ¶ Pea naʻe pehē ʻe Kitione kiate kinautolu, “ʻOku ou fie fai atu ʻeku kole kiate kimoutolu, koeʻuhi ke mou tuku mai kiate au ʻae ngaahi mama kuo mou maʻu ʻi he vete.” (He naʻa nau ʻai ʻae hau koula, he ko e kau ʻIsimeʻeli ʻakinautolu.) 25 Pea naʻe pehēange ʻekinautolu, “Te mau ʻatu fiemālie pe ia.” Pea naʻa nau folahi ʻae kofu pea naʻe sī ki ai taki taha ʻe he tangata ʻae ngaahi hau mei heʻene meʻa. 26 Pea ko hono mamafa ʻoe ngaahi hau koula ʻaia naʻa ne kole, ko e sikeli koula ʻe taha afe mo e fitungeau: ka ʻoku lau kehe ʻae ngaahi teunga, mo e ngaahi kahoa, mo e ngaahi kofu lanumoana naʻe ʻi he ongo tuʻi ʻo Mitiane, pea mo e ngaahi kahoa naʻe ʻi he kia ʻo ʻenau fanga kāmeli. 27 Pea naʻe ngaohi ʻaki ia ʻe Kitione ʻae ʻefoti pea naʻe tuku ia ki he kolo, ʻaia ko Ofila: pea naʻe ʻalu ki ai ʻa ʻIsileli kotoa pē ʻo fai angahala: pea naʻe hoko ʻae meʻa ko ia ko e tauhele kia Kitione, pea ki hono fale.
28 ¶ Naʻe pehē ʻae fakamoʻulaloa ʻo Mitiane ʻi he ʻao ʻoe fānau ʻa ʻIsileli, ko ia naʻe ʻikai tenau toe hiki hake honau ʻulu. Pea naʻe nofo fiemālie pe ʻae fonua ʻi he taʻu ʻe fāngofulu ʻi he ngaahi ʻaho ʻo Kitione.
29 ¶ Pea naʻe ʻalu ʻa Selupeali ko e foha ʻo Soasi ʻo nofo ʻi hono fale ʻoʻona. 30 Pea naʻe ʻia Kitione ʻae foha ʻe toko fitungofulu naʻe tupu ʻiate ia: he naʻe tokolahi hono ʻunoho. 31 Pea naʻe fānau kiate ia ʻe he kaunanga naʻe ʻi Sikemi ʻae tama, ʻaia naʻa ne ui ko ʻApimeleki. 32 Pea naʻe pekia ʻa Kitione ko e foha ʻo Soasi kuo aʻu ʻa hono taʻu, pea naʻe tanu ia ʻi he faʻitoka ʻo ʻene tamai ko Soasi, ʻi Ofila ʻoe kakai ʻApiesa. 33 Pea kuo pekia leva ʻa Kitione naʻe hoko ʻo pehē, naʻe toe tafoki ʻae fānau ʻa ʻIsileli, ʻonau muimui holi kovi kia Peali, ʻonau ʻotua ʻaki ʻa Peali-Piliti. 34 Pea naʻe ʻikai manatuʻi ʻe he fānau ʻa ʻIsileli kia Sihova ko honau ʻOtua, ʻaia naʻa ne fakamoʻui ʻakinautolu mei he nima ʻo honau ngaahi fili ʻi he potu kotoa pē. 35 Pea naʻe ʻikai tenau fakahā ʻae ʻofa ki he fale ʻo Selupeali, ʻaia ko Kitione, ʻo hangē ko e ngāue lelei ʻaia naʻe fakahā ʻe ia ki ʻIsileli.
