1 ʻOku fakamaau ʻa ʻIsileli ʻe Tola. 3 Ko Saili, mo hono foha ʻe toko tolungofulu naʻe maʻu ʻae kolo ʻe tolungofulu. 6 ʻOku fakamālohiʻi ʻa ʻIsileli ʻe he kakai Filisitia mo e kakai ʻAmoni. 10 ʻOku fekau atu ʻakinautolu ʻe he ʻOtua ʻi heʻenau mamahi ki honau ngaahi ʻotua loi. 15 ʻI heʻenau fakatomala, ʻoku fai ʻofa ia kiate kimautolu.
Pea naʻe tuʻu hake ki mui ia ʻApimeleki ʻa Tola ko e foha ʻo Pua, ko e foha ʻo Toto, ko e tangata ʻo ʻIsaka, ke ne fakamoʻui ʻa ʻIsileli; pea naʻe nofo ia ʻi Samili ʻi he moʻunga ʻo ʻIfalemi. Pea naʻa ne fakamaauʻi ʻa ʻIsileli ʻi he taʻu ʻe uofulu ma tolu, pea pekia ia, pea naʻe tanu ia ʻi Samili.
¶ Pea naʻe hoko mo ia ʻa Saili ko e tangata ʻo Kiliati, pea ne fakamaau ʻe ia ʻa ʻIsileli ʻi he taʻu ʻe uofulu ma ua. Pea naʻe toko tolungofulu hono foha naʻa nau heka ʻi he ngaahi ʻasi mui ʻe tolungofulu, pea naʻe tolungofulu ʻenau kolo, ʻaia ʻoku ui ko e ngaahi kolo ʻo Saili, ʻo aʻu ki he ʻaho ni, ʻaia ʻoku ʻi he fonua ʻo Kiliati. Pea naʻe pekia ʻa Saili, pea tanu ia ʻi Kamoni.
¶ Pea naʻe toe fai kovi ʻe he fānau ʻa ʻIsileli ʻi he ʻao ʻo Sihova, ʻonau tauhi ʻa Peali mo ʻAsitelote, mo e ngaahi ʻotua ʻo Silia, pea mo e ngaahi ʻotua ʻo Saitoni, mo e ngaahi ʻotua ʻo Moape, mo e ngaahi ʻotua ʻoe fānau ʻa ʻAmoni, mo e ngaahi ʻotua ʻoe kau Filisitia, ʻonau liʻaki ʻa Sihova, pea naʻe ʻikai tenau tauhi ia. Pea naʻe tupu ai ke vela ʻae houhau ʻo Sihova ki ʻIsileli, pea ne fakatau kinautolu ki he nima ʻoe kau Filisitia, pea ki he nima ʻoe fānau ʻa ʻAmoni. Pea naʻe hongofulu taʻu mo e taʻu ʻe valu ʻi he kuonga ko ia mo ʻenau taʻomia ʻae fānau ʻa ʻIsileli: ʻae fānau kotoa pē ʻa ʻIsileli naʻe nofo ʻi he potu ki kō atu ʻi Sioatani ʻi he fonua ʻoe kau ʻAmoli, ʻaia ʻoku ʻi Kiliati. Naʻe ʻalu foki ʻae fānau ʻa ʻAmoni ʻo fokotuʻu atu ki he kauvai ʻe taha ʻo Sioatani ke tauʻi ʻa Siuta, pea mo Penisimani, pea mo e fale ʻo ʻIfalemi: ko ia naʻe mamahi lahi ai ʻa ʻIsileli. 10 Pea naʻe tangi ʻae fānau ʻa ʻIsileli kia Sihova, ʻo pehē, “Kuo mau fai angahala kiate koe, ko e meʻa ʻi heʻemau liʻaki homau ʻOtua, mo ʻemau tauhi foki ʻa Peali.” 11 Pea naʻe pehē ʻe Sihova ki he fānau ʻa ʻIsileli, “ʻIkai naʻaku fakamoʻui ʻakimoutolu mei he kakai ʻIsipite, pea mei he kau ʻAmoli, pea mei he fānau ʻa ʻAmoni, pea mei he kau Filisitia? 12 Pea naʻe taʻomia foki ʻakimoutolu ʻe he kau Saitoni, mo e kau ʻAmaleki, pea mo e kau Maoni: pea ne mou tangi kiate au, pea ne u fakamoʻui ʻakimoutolu mei honau nima. 13 Ka kuo mou liʻaki au ke tauhi ʻae ngaahi ʻotua kehe: ko ia ʻe ʻikai te u kei fakamoʻui ʻakimoutolu. 14 ‌ʻAlu ʻo tangi ki he ngaahi ʻotua ʻaia kuo mou fili: tuku kenau fakamoʻui ʻakimoutolu ʻi he ʻaho ʻo hoʻomou tuʻutāmaki lahi.”
15 ¶ Pea naʻe pehē ʻe he fānau ʻa ʻIsileli kia Sihova, “Kuo mau fai angahala: ke ke fai ʻe koe ʻaia ʻoku lelei kiate koe kiate kimautolu: ka ʻoku mau kole kiate koe ke ke fakamoʻui ʻakimautolu he ʻaho ni.” 16 Pea naʻa nau tukuange ʻiate kinautolu ʻae ngaahi ʻotua kehe naʻe ʻiate kinautolu, ʻonau tauhi ʻa Sihova: pea naʻe mamahi hono laumālie ʻi he mamahi ʻa ʻIsileli. 17 Pea naʻe fakakātoa fakataha ai ʻae fānau ʻa ʻAmoni, ʻonau ʻapitanga ʻi Kiliati. Pea naʻe fakakātoa fakataha ʻae fānau ʻa ʻIsileli, ʻonau ʻapitanga ʻi Misipa. 18 Pea naʻe fepehēʻaki ʻe he kakai mo e houʻeiki ʻo Kiliati, “Ko hai ʻae tangata ʻe kamata ʻae tau ki he fānau ʻa ʻAmoni? ʻE hoko ia ko e ʻeiki ki he kakai kotoa pē ʻo Kiliati.”
