11
1 Ko e fakahā ʻe Selemaia ʻae fuakava ʻae ʻOtua. 8 ʻOku ne valoki ki he kakai Siu koeʻuhi ko ʻenau talangataʻa ki he fuakava, 11 ʻO ne kikite ki he kovi ʻe hoko kiate kinautolu, 18 Pea mo e kakai ʻo ʻAnatoti ko e meʻa ʻi heʻenau puleaki ke fakapoongi ʻa Selemaia.
Ko e folofola naʻe hoko kia Selemaia meia Sihova, ʻo pehē, “Mou fanongo ki he ngaahi lea ʻoe fuakava ni, pea ke lea ki he kau tangata ʻo Siuta, pea mo e kakai ʻo Selūsalema; Pea ke pehē kiate kinautolu, ʻoku pehē mai ʻe Sihova ko e ʻOtua ʻo ʻIsileli; ‘ʻE malaʻia ʻae tangata ʻaia ʻoku ʻikai talangofua ki he ngaahi lea ʻoe fuakava ni, ‌ʻAia naʻaku fekau ki hoʻomou ngaahi tamai ʻi he ʻaho naʻaku ʻomi ai ʻakinautolu mei he fonua ko ʻIsipite, mei he tutuʻanga ukamea,’ ʻo pehē, ‘Mou talangofua ki hoku leʻo, pea fai ʻo hangē ko e meʻa kotoa pē ʻoku ou fekau kiate kimoutolu: ko ia te mou hoko ai ko hoku kakai, pea te u hoko ko homou ʻOtua: Koeʻuhi ke u fakamoʻoni ʻae fuakava ʻaia naʻaku fuakava ʻaki ki hoʻomou ngaahi tamai, ke foaki kiate kinautolu ʻae fonua ʻoku mahu ʻi he huʻahuhu mo e honi, ʻo hangē ko ia he ʻaho ni.”
Pea ne u toki lea, ʻo pehē, “Ke pehē pe, ʻE Sihova.”
Pea naʻe toki pehē ʻe Sihova kiate au, “Ke ke fakahā ʻae ngaahi lea ni kotoa ki he ngaahi kolo ʻo Siuta, mo e ngaahi hala ʻi Selūsalema, ʻo pehē, Mou fanongo ki he ngaahi lea ʻoe fuakava ni, pea fai ki ai. He naʻaku ako lahi ki hoʻomou ngaahi tamai, ʻi he ʻaho naʻaku ʻomi ai ʻakinautolu mei he fonua ko ʻIsipite, ʻo aʻu ki he ʻaho ni, ʻo tuʻu hengihengi hake pe ʻo ako, ʻo pehē, Mou talangofua ki hoku leʻo. Ka naʻe ʻikai te nau talangofua, pe fakatokangaʻi honau telinga, ka naʻa nau taki taha muimui ki he holi ʻa hono loto kovi; ko ia te u ʻomi ai kiate kimoutolu ʻae ngaahi lea kotoa pē ʻoe fuakava ni, ʻaia naʻaku fekau ke nau fai; ka naʻe ʻikai te nau fai ki ai.”
Pea naʻe pehē ʻe Sihova kiate au, “ʻOku ʻi he kakai ʻo Siuta mo e kau nofoʻanga ʻo Selūsalema ʻae puleaki. 10 Kuo nau foki ki mui ki he hia ʻo ʻenau mātuʻa ʻi muʻa, ʻakinautolu naʻe ʻikai te nau tokanga ki heʻeku lea; pea naʻa nau muimui ki he ngaahi ʻotua kehe mo tauhi ki ai: kuo maumauʻi ʻeku fuakava ʻe he fale ʻo ʻIsileli mo e fale ʻo Siuta ʻaia ne u fai mo ʻenau ngaahi tamai.
11 ¶ “Ko ia, ʻoku pehē ʻe Sihova, ‘Vakai, te u ʻomi ʻae kovi kiate kinautolu, ʻaia ʻe ʻikai te nau faʻa hao mei ai; pea kapau te nau tangi kiate au, ʻe ʻikai te u fanongo kiate kinautolu. 12 Pea ʻe toki ʻalu ʻae ngaahi kolo ʻo Siuta, mo e kakai ʻo Selūsalema, ʻo tangi ki honau ngaahi ʻotua ʻaia naʻa nau ʻatu ki ai ʻae meʻa namu kakala: ka e ʻikai siʻi te nau fakamoʻui ʻakinautolu ʻi he ʻaho ʻo ʻenau mamahi. 13 He ʻoku hangē ko hono tokolahi ʻo ho ngaahi kolo, ʻoku pehē hono tokolahi ʻo ho ngaahi ʻotua, ʻE Siuta; pea hangē ko e lau ʻoe ngaahi hala ʻi Selūsalema kuo mou fokotuʻu ʻae feilaulauʻanga ki he meʻa fakamā, ʻio ʻae ngaahi feilaulauʻanga ke tutu ai ʻae meʻa namu kakala kia Peali.’
14 “Ko ia ʻoua te ke hūfia ʻae kakai ni; pe hiki hake ha tangi pe hū koeʻuhi ko kinautolu: koeʻuhi ʻe ʻikai te u fanongo kiate kinautolu ʻi he ʻaho te nau tangi ai kiate au ʻi heʻenau mamahi. 15 Ko e hā ʻoku kei nofo ai ʻa hoku ʻofaʻanga ʻi hoku fale, ka kuo fai kovi ia mo e tokolahi? ʻE maʻu meiate koe ʻae fuakava mo e kakano māʻoniʻoni? ʻI hoʻo fai meʻa kovi naʻa ke fiefia ai.
16 Pea naʻe ui ho hingoa ʻe Sihova, “Ko e ʻolive mata,
ʻoku matamatalelei, pea fua lelei:”
kuo ne tutu ʻaki ia ʻae afi ʻi he longoaʻa lahi,
pea kuo vela hono ngaahi vaʻa.
17 He ko Sihova ʻoe ngaahi kautau, ʻaia naʻa ne tō koe, kuo ne fakahā kiate koe ʻae kovi, koeʻuhi ko e kovi ʻae fale ʻo ʻIsileli, pea mo e fale ʻo Siuta, ʻaia kuo nau fai ke fakahouhau ʻaki au ʻi heʻenau feilaulau ʻaki ʻae meʻa namu kakala kia Peali.”
18 ¶ Pea kuo fakaʻilo ia kiate au ʻe Sihova, pea ʻoku ou ʻilo ia: pea naʻa ke fakahā kiate au ʻenau ngaahi faianga. 19 Ka naʻaku hangē ko e lami pe ha pulu ʻaia ʻoku ʻomi ke tāmateʻi; pea naʻe ʻikai te u ʻiloʻi kuo nau fakakaukau ʻae tauhele kiate au, ʻo pehē,
“Ke tau fakaʻauha ʻae ʻakau mo hono fua,
pea ke tau tuʻusi ia mei he fonua ʻoe moʻui,
ke ʻoua naʻa toe manatuʻi ʻa hono hingoa.”
20 Ka ko koe, ʻE Sihova ʻoe ngaahi kautau, ʻa koe ʻoku ke fakamaau totonu,
mo hakule ʻae ngaahi holi mo e loto,
tuku ke u mamata ki ho houhau kiate kinautolu:
he kuo u fakahā ʻeku meʻa kiate koe.”
21 “Ko ia ʻoku pehē ʻe Sihova ki he kau tangata ʻo ʻAnatoti, ʻakinautolu ʻoku kumi hoʻo moʻui, ʻonau pehē, ‘ʻOua te ke kikite ʻi he huafa ʻo Sihova, telia naʻa ke mate koe ʻi homau nima:’ 22 Ko ia ʻoku pehē mai ʻe Sihova ʻoe ngaahi kautau, ‘Vakai, te u tautea ʻakinautolu: ʻe mate honau kau talavou ʻi he heletā; pea ʻe mate honau ngaahi foha, mo honau ngaahi ʻofefine ʻi he honge: 23 Pea ʻe ʻikai kei toe ha kakai ʻiate kinautolu: he te u ʻomi ʻae kovi ki he kakai ʻo ʻAnatoti, ʻio, ko e taʻu ʻoe ʻaʻahi kiate kinautolu.’ ”
