1 Ko e fakamoʻui ʻa ʻIsileli. 10 Ko hono fakahā. 15 Ko e fakafiemālie kia Lesieli naʻe tangi. 18 Ko e fakatomala ʻa ʻIfalemi pea toe ʻomi ia. 22 Ko e talaʻofa kia Kalaisi. 27 Ko ʻene tokanga ki he siasi. 30 Ko ʻene fuakava foʻou. 33 Ko e tuʻumaʻu, 38 Mo hono lahi ʻoe siasi.
‌ʻOku pehē ʻe Sihova,
“ʻI he kuonga ko ia,
teu hoko ko e ʻOtua ki he ngaahi faʻahinga kotoa pē ʻo ʻIsileli,
pea ko hoku kakai ʻakinautolu.
‌ʻOku pehē ʻe Sihova,
Ko e kakai naʻe hao ʻi he heletā naʻe ʻilo ʻae ʻofa ʻi he toafa;
ʻio,
ko ʻIsileli,
naʻaku fai ke aʻutaki ia ki he mālōlō.
Talu mei muʻa kuo hā mai kiate au ʻa Sihova,
ʻo pehē,
Ko e moʻoni,
kuo u ʻofa ʻaki kiate koe ʻae ʻofa taʻengata:
ko ia kuo u toho ʻaki koe ʻae ʻofa ongongofua.
Pea te u toe langa koe,
pea ʻe langa hake koe,
ʻE taʻahine ʻo ʻIsileli:
ʻe toe teuteu ʻaki koe ho ngaahi meʻa faiva,
pea te ke ʻalu koe ke meʻe mo kinautolu ʻoku fiefia.
Te ke toe tō ʻae ngaahi vaine ʻi he ngaahi moʻunga ʻo Samēlia,
:
ʻe tō ia ʻe he kau ngoue,
pea ʻe kai ia ʻo hangē ko e ngaahi meʻa ngofua.
Pea ʻe hokosia ʻae ʻaho,
ʻe kalanga ai ʻae kau tangata leʻo ʻi he moʻunga ko ʻIfalemi,
‘Mou tuʻu hake,
pea ke tau ʻalu hake ki Saione,
kia Sihova ko hotau ʻOtua.’ ”
He ʻoku pehē ʻe Sihova;
“Mou hiva ʻaki ʻae fiefia kia Sēkope,
pea kalanga ʻi he lotolotonga ʻoe ngaahi kakai lahi:
mou fakahā,
mou fakafetaʻi,
ʻo pehē,
ʻE Sihova,
fakamoʻui ʻa hoʻo kakai,
ʻae toenga kakai ʻo ʻIsileli.
Vakai,
te u ʻomi ʻakinautolu mei he fonua ʻi he tokelau,
pea tānaki ʻakinautolu mei he ngaahi ngataʻanga ʻo māmani,
ko kinautolu mo e kui pea mo e pipiki,
mo e fefine feitama,
pea mo ia ʻoku langā:
ʻe liliu mai ki heni ʻae fuʻu tokolahi.
Te nau haʻu mo e tangi, pea ʻi he lotu tāumaʻu te u tataki ʻakinautolu: te u fakaʻeveʻeva ʻakinautolu ʻi he ngaahi veʻe vaitafe ʻi he hala tokalelei, ʻaia ʻe ʻikai te nau tūkia ai: he ko e tamai au ki ʻIsileli, pea ko ʻeku ʻuluaki fānau ʻa ʻIfalemi.”
10 ¶ Fanongo ki he folofola ʻa Sihova, “ʻAkimoutolu ʻae ngaahi puleʻanga, pea fakahā ia ʻi he ngaahi motu mamaʻo, ʻo pehē, Ko ia naʻe fakamovetevete ʻa ʻIsileli te ne toe tānaki ia, pea leʻohi ia, ʻo hangē ko e tauhi ki heʻene fanga manu. 11 He kuo huhuʻi ʻe Sihova ʻa Sēkope, pea huhuʻi ia mei he nima ʻo ia naʻe mālohi kiate ia. 12 Ko ia te nau haʻu ʻo hiva ʻi he ngaahi potu māʻolunga ʻo Saione, pea te nau fakataha ki he angalelei ʻa Sihova, ki he uite, mo e uaine, mo e lolo, mo e ʻuhiki ʻoe fanga sipi, pea mo e manu: pea ʻe tatau honau laumālie mo e ngoue kuo fakaviviku; pea ʻe ʻikai ʻaupito te nau toe mamahi. 13 Pea ʻe toki fiefia ʻae taʻahine ʻi he meʻe, ko e talavou mo e motuʻa fakataha: he teu liliu ʻenau mamahi ko e fiefia, pea te u fakafiemālieʻi ʻakinautolu pea fakafiefiaʻi ʻakinautolu ʻi he hili ʻenau mamahi. 14 Pea te u fakamākona ʻaki ʻae ngako ʻae laumālie ʻoe kau taulaʻeiki, pea ʻe mākona ʻa hoku kakai ʻi heʻeku angalelei, ʻoku pehē ʻe Sihova.”
15 ¶ ʻOku pehē ʻe Sihova; “Naʻe ongoʻi ʻi Lama ʻae leʻo ko e tangi, mo e tangilāulau; ko e tangi ʻa Lesieli ʻi heʻene fānau pea ʻe ʻikai te ne tali ʻae fiemālie koeʻuhi ko ʻene fānau, he kuo ʻikai ʻakinautolu. 16 ‌ʻOku pehē ʻe Sihova; taʻofi ho leʻo mei he tangi, pea mo ho mata mei he loʻimata: he ʻoku pehē ʻe Sihova, ʻe totongi hoʻo ngāue; pea te nau toe haʻu mei he fonua ʻoe fili. 17 ‌ʻOku pehē ʻe Sihova, ʻOku ai ʻae ʻamanaki ʻi ho ikuʻanga, koeʻuhi ʻe toe ʻomi ʻa hoʻo fānau ki honau fonua.
18 ¶ “Ko e moʻoni kuo u fanongo kia ʻIfalemi ʻoku ne fakamamahi ʻe ia ia, ʻo pehē; ‘Kuo ke valoki mai pea kuo valokiʻi au ʻo hangē ko e pulu ʻoku taʻemaheni ai mo e haʻamonga: fakatafoki au pea te u tafoki; he ko koe ko Sihova ko hoku ʻOtua. 19 Pea hili ʻeku tafoki naʻaku fakatomala moʻoni; pea u taaʻi hoku tenga ʻi he hili hoku akonakiʻi: naʻaku mā, ʻio, mo puputuʻu, koeʻuhi kuo u fua ʻae ongoongo kovi ʻo ʻeku kei siʻi.’ 20 ‌ʻIkai ko hoku foha ʻofeina ʻa ʻIfalemi? ʻIkai ko e tamasiʻi fakaʻofoʻofa ia? He kuo talu ʻeku lea kiate ia, ʻoku ou kei manatu lahi kiate ia: ko ia ʻoku mamahi hoku fatu koeʻuhi ko ia; ko e moʻoni te u ʻofa kiate ia, ʻoku pehē mai ʻa Sihova. 21 Ke ke fokotuʻu ʻae ngaahi fakaʻilonga ʻoe hala, fokotuʻu ʻae ngaahi fakaʻilonga māʻolunga: fakahanga ho loto ki he hala lahi, ke ke liliu mai ʻi he hala naʻa ke ʻalu ai, ʻE taʻahine ʻo ʻIsileli, ke ke liliu mai ki hoʻo ngaahi kolo ni.”
22 ¶ ʻE ʻofefine fakaholomui, ʻe fēfē hono fuoloa ʻa hoʻo ʻalu fano? He kuo fakatupu ʻe Sihova ha meʻa foʻou ʻi he fonua, ʻe auna ʻe he fefine ʻae tangata mālohi.” 23 ‌ʻOku pehē ʻe Sihova ʻoe ngaahi kautau, ko e ʻOtua ʻo ʻIsileli; “Te nau lea ʻaki ʻae lea ni ʻi he fonua ʻo Siuta pea ʻi hono ngaahi kolo, ʻo kau ka fakatafoki ʻenau pōpula; ‘Ke tāpuakiʻi koe ʻe Sihova, ʻa koe ko e nofoʻanga ʻoe angatonu, pea ko e moʻunga ʻoe māʻoniʻoni.’ 24 Pea ʻe nofo ʻi Siuta mo hono ngaahi kolo kotoa pē, ʻae kau tangata tauhi, mo kinautolu ʻoku ʻalu atu mo ʻenau fanga manu. 25 He kuo u fakainu ʻae laumālie ʻoku vaivai, pea kuo u fakamākona ʻae laumālie kotoa pē ʻoku mamahi. 26 Pea naʻaku ʻā ʻi he meʻa ni, pea u vakai; pea naʻe lelei kiate au ʻeku mohe.
27 ¶ “ʻOku pehē ʻe Sihova, Vakai, ʻoku haʻu ʻae ngaahi ʻaho, ʻaia teu tūtuuʻi ai ʻae hako ʻoe tangata mo e hako ʻoe manu ki he fale ʻo ʻIsileli pea mo e fale ʻo Siuta. 28 Pea ʻe hoko ʻo pehē, ʻo hangē naʻaku leʻohi ʻakinautolu, ke taʻaki fuʻu hake, mo fesiʻi hifo, pea lī ki lalo, mo fakaʻauha, mo fakamamahi; ʻe pehē ʻeku leʻohi ʻakinautolu, ke langa, mo tō, ʻoku pehē ʻe Sihova. 29 Pea ʻe ʻikai te nau toe lea pehē ʻi he ʻaho ko ia, ‘Kuo kai ʻe he ngaahi tamai ʻae kālepi mahi, pea kuo maninia ʻae nifo ʻoe fānau.’ 30 Ka ʻe mate ʻae tangata taki taha ʻi heʻene hia ʻaʻana: ʻe maninia ʻae nifo ʻoe tangata taki taha ʻoku kai ki he kālepi mahi.”
31 ¶ ʻOku pehē ʻe Sihova, Vakai, ʻe hoko mai ʻae ngaahi ʻaho, te u fai ai ʻae fuakava foʻou mo e fale ʻo ʻIsileli, pea mo e fale ʻo Siuta: 32 ‌ʻO ʻikai tatau mo e fuakava ʻaia ne u fai mo ʻenau ngaahi tamai, ʻi he ʻaho ko ia naʻaku puke ai honau nima ke tataki ʻakinautolu mei he fonua ko ʻIsipite; ʻaia ko e fuakava ʻaʻaku naʻa nau maumauʻi; ka ʻoku pehē ʻe Sihova, ne u hangē ko e ʻunoho kiate kinautolu. 33 He ko eni ʻae fuakava ʻaia te u fai mo e fale ʻo ʻIsileli; ʻoka hili ange ʻae ngaahi ʻaho ko ia, ʻoku pehē ʻe Sihova, Teu ai ʻeku fono ki honau loto, pea te u tohi ia ʻi honau laumālie; pea teu hoko ko honau ʻOtua, pea ʻe hoko ʻakinautolu ko hoku kakai. 34 Pea ʻe ʻikai te nau taki taha ako ki hono kaungāʻapi, mo taki taha ki hono kāinga, ʻo pehē, Ke ʻilo ʻa Sihova: he te nau ʻilo kotoa pē au, mei he iiki ʻo aʻu ki he lalahi ʻiate kinautolu, ʻOku pehē ʻe Sihova: he te u fakamolemole ʻenau hia, pea ʻe ʻikai te u toe manatu ki heʻenau angahala.
35 ¶ ʻOku pehē ʻe Sihova, ʻaia ʻoku ne foaki ʻae laʻā ko e maama ki he ʻaho, pea kuo tuʻutuʻuni ʻae māhina mo e ngaahi fetuʻu ko e maama ki he pō, ʻaia ʻoku ne vahevahe ʻae tahi ʻi he ʻuʻulu ʻa hono ngaahi peau; ko Sihova ʻoe ngaahi kautau ko hono huafa. 36 ‌ʻOku pehē ʻe Sihova, Kapau ʻe mole ʻi hoku ʻao ʻae ngaahi tuʻutuʻuni ni, pea ʻe toki fakangata ʻae puleʻanga ʻoe hako ʻo ʻIsileli ʻi hoku ʻao ʻo taʻengata. 37 ‌ʻOku pehē ʻe Sihova; Kapau ʻoku faʻa fuofua ʻae langi ʻi ʻolunga, pea faʻa hakule ʻae ngaahi tuʻunga ʻi lalo ʻo māmani, te u toki liʻaki foki ʻae hako kotoa pē ʻo ʻIsileli, koeʻuhi ko e meʻa kotoa pē ʻaia kuo nau fai, ʻoku pehē ʻe Sihova.
38 ¶ ʻOku pehē ʻe Sihova, “Vakai, ʻoku haʻu ʻae ngaahi ʻaho, ʻaia ʻe langa ai ʻae kolo kia Sihova mei he potu fale leʻo ʻo Hananili ki he matapā ʻoe tuliki. 39 Pea ʻe falō totonu ʻae meʻa fuofua ʻiate ia, ki he moʻunga ko Kalepi, pea ʻe tākai ʻaki ki Koate. 40 Pea ʻe māʻoniʻoni kia Sihova ʻae teleʻa ʻoe ngaahi ʻangaʻanga, pea mo e efu, pea mo e ngaahi ngoue kotoa pē ʻo aʻu ki he vaitafe ko Kitiloni, ʻo aʻu ki he tuliki ʻoe matapā hoosi ʻoku hanga ki he tokelau, pea ʻe ʻikai toe taʻaki ia, pe toe lī ki lalo ʻo taʻengata.”
