1 Ko e fakakoviʻi ʻo Selemaia pea lī ia ki he fale fakapoʻuli ʻo Malikia. 7 Kuo tuku siʻi ange ia, ʻi he kole ʻa ʻIpetemeleki. 14 ʻOku ne akonaki fakafufū ki he tuʻi ke fakahaofi ʻene moʻui ʻaʻana. 24 ʻOku fekau ʻe he tuʻi kiate ia ke fakafufū ʻene akonaki mei he houʻeiki.
Pea kuo fanongo ʻa Sefatia ko e foha ʻo Matani, mo Ketalia, ko e foha ʻo Pasuli, mo Sehukali ko e foha ʻo Selemaia, mo Pasuli ko e foha ʻo Malikia, ki he ngaahi lea ʻaia naʻe lea ʻaki ʻe Selemaia ki he kakai kotoa pē, ʻo pehē, “ʻOku pehē mai ʻa Sihova, ‘Ko ia ʻoku nofo ʻi he kolo ni, te ne mate ʻi he heletā, mo e honge, pea mo e mahaki fakaʻauha: ka ko ia ʻe ʻalu kituʻa ki he kau Kalitia te ne moʻui; ʻe ʻiate ia ʻene moʻui ko e koloa kuo vetea, pea te ne moʻui.’ ‌ʻOku pehē ʻe Sihova, ‘Ko e moʻoni ʻe foaki ʻae kolo ni ki he nima ʻoe kau tau ʻo Papilone, pea te nau kapa ia.’ ” Ko ia naʻe pehē ai ʻae houʻeiki ki he tuʻi, “ʻOku mau kole kiate koe, tuku ke tāmateʻi ʻae tangata ni: he ʻoku ne fakavaivaiʻi ʻae nima ʻoe kau tangata tau ʻoku kei toe ʻi he kolo ni, pea mo e nima ʻoe kakai kotoa pē, ʻi heʻene lea ʻaki ʻae ngaahi lea pehē kiate kinautolu: he ʻoku ʻikai kumi ʻe he tangata ni ʻae lelei ʻoe kakai ni, ka ko e kovi.”
Pea pehē mai ʻa Setikia ko e tuʻi, “Vakai, ʻoku ʻi homou nima ia: he ʻoku ʻikai faʻa fai ʻe he tuʻi ha meʻa kiate kimoutolu.”
Pea naʻe ʻave ʻa Selemaia, ʻo lī ia ki he fale fakapoʻuli ʻo Malikia ko e foha ʻoe tuʻi, ʻaia naʻe ʻi he lotoʻā ʻoe fale fakapōpula: pea naʻe tukutuku hifo ʻaki ʻa Selemaia ʻae ngaahi maea. Ka naʻe ʻikai ha vai ʻi he fale fakapoʻuli, ka ko e kele pe; pea naʻe ngalo hifo ʻa Selemaia ʻi he kele.
¶ Pea kuo fanongo ʻa ʻIpetemeleki, ko e ʻItiopea, ko e tangata talifekau ʻaia naʻe nofo ʻi he fale ʻoe tuʻi, kuo tuku ʻa Selemaia ki he fale fakapoʻuli; pea ʻoku nofo ʻae tuʻi ʻi he matapā ʻo Penisimani, Naʻe ʻalu atu mei he fale ʻoe tuʻi ʻa ʻIpetemeleki, ʻo lea ki he tuʻi, ʻo pehē, “Ko ʻeku ʻeiki ko e tuʻi, ʻoku kovi ʻae meʻa kotoa pē kuo fai ʻe he kau tangata ni kia Selemaia ko e palōfita, ʻaia kuo nau lī ki he fale fakapoʻuli, he te ne mate fiekaia ʻi he potu ko ia: he ʻoku ʻikai kei toe ha mā ʻi he kolo.”
10 Pea naʻe fekau ʻe he tuʻi ʻa ʻIpetemeleki ko e ʻItiopea, ʻo pehē, “ʻAlu mo koe ʻae kau tangata ʻe toko tolungofulu, pea toʻo hake ʻa Selemaia ko e palōfita mei he fale fakapōpula, ʻi he teʻeki ai te ne mate.”
11 ¶ Pea naʻe ʻave ʻe ʻIpetemeleki ʻae kau tangata pea nau ʻo mo ia ki he fale ʻoe tuʻi, ki lalo ʻi he tukuʻanga koloa, pea toʻo mei ai ʻae ngaahi kofu motuʻa pea mahaehae, ʻo tukutuku hifo ia mo e ngaahi maea ki he fale fakapoʻuli kia Selemaia. 12 Pea naʻe pehē ʻa ʻIpetemeleki ko e ʻItiopea kia Selemaia, “Ai ni ʻae ngaahi kofu motuʻa pea mahaehae ʻi ho lalo faʻefine pea mo e ngaahi maea.”
Pea naʻe fai ia ʻe Selemaia. 13 Pea naʻa nau fusi hake ʻa Selemaia mo e ngaahi maea, pea ʻave ia mei he fale fakapōpula: ka ka nofo ʻa Selemaia ʻi he lotoʻā ʻoe fale fakapōpula.
14 ¶ Pea naʻe toki fekau ʻe Setikia ko e tuʻi, pea ʻomi ʻa Selemaia, ko e palōfita kiate ia ki he hūʻanga lahi ʻaia ʻoku ʻi he fale ʻo Sihova: pea naʻe pehē ʻe he tuʻi kia Selemaia, “Te u fehuʻi kiate koe ha meʻa ʻe taha; pea ʻoua naʻa ke fufū ha meʻa ʻiate au.”
15 Pea pehē ʻe Selemaia kia Setikia, “Kapau te u fakahā ia kiate koe, ʻoku moʻoni ʻe ʻikai te ke tāmateʻi au? Pea kapau te u akonakiʻi koe te ke fanongo kiate au?”
16 Pea naʻe fuakava fakafufū ʻa Setikia kia Selemaia, ʻo pehē, “ʻI he moʻui ʻa Sihova, ʻaia kuo ngaohi kiate kitaua ʻae laumālie ni, ʻe ʻikai te u tāmateʻi koe, pea ʻe ʻikai te u tukuange koe ki he nima ʻoe kau tangata ni ʻoku kumi hoʻo moʻui.”
17 Pea naʻe pehē ʻe Selemaia kia Setikia, “ʻOku pehē mai ʻa Sihova, ko e ʻOtua ʻoe ngaahi kautau, ko e ʻOtua ʻo ʻIsileli; ‘Ko e moʻoni kapau te ke ʻalu atu ki he houʻeiki ʻoe tuʻi ʻo Papilone, ʻe moʻui ho laumālie, pea ʻe ʻikai tutu ʻaki ʻae kolo ni ʻae afi, pea te ke moʻui, mo ho fale: 18 pea kapau ʻe ʻikai te ke ʻalu atu ki he houʻeiki ʻoe tuʻi ʻo Papilone, pea ʻe toki foaki ʻae kolo ni ki he nima ʻoe kau Kalitia, pea te nau tutu ʻaki ia ʻae afi, pea ʻe ʻikai te ke hao ʻi honau nima.’ ”
19 Pea pehē ʻe Setikia ko e tuʻi kia Selemaia, “ʻOku ou manavahē ki he kau Siu kuo hola ki he kau Kalitia, telia naʻa nau tukuange au ki honau nima, pea te nau manukiʻi au.”
20 Pea pehē ʻe Selemaia, “ʻE ʻikai te nau tukuange koe. ʻOku ou kole kiate koe, ke ke talangofua ki he leʻo ʻo Sihova, ʻi he meʻa ʻoku ou lea ʻaki kiate koe: pea ko ia ʻe hoko ai ʻae lelei kiate koe, pea ʻe moʻui ho laumālie. 21 Pea kapau ʻe ʻikai te ke ʻalu atu, ko eni ʻae lea kuo fakahā ʻe Sihova kiate au: 22 ‘ʻIo, vakai, ko e fefine kotoa pē ʻoku kei toe ʻi he fale ʻoe tuʻi ʻo Siuta, ʻe ʻomi ʻakinautolu ki he houʻeiki ʻoe tuʻi ʻo Papilone, pea te nau lea ʻo pehē,
“Kuo akonakiʻi koe ʻe ho kāinga,
pea kuo nau ikuna koe:
kuo moʻua ho vaʻe ʻi he kele,
pea kuo nau tafoki kimui.”
23 Pea te nau ʻomi ho ngaahi ʻunoho kotoa pē mo hoʻo fānau ki he kau Kalitia: pea ʻe ʻikai te ke hao ʻi honau nima, ka ʻe puke nima koe ʻe he tuʻi ʻo Papilone: pea ʻe tutu ʻaki ʻae afi ʻae kolo ni koeʻuhi ko koe.’ ”
24 ¶ Pea naʻe pehē ʻe Setikia kia Selemaia, “ʻOua naʻa tuku ke ʻilo ʻe ha tangata ʻae ngaahi lea ni, pea ʻe ʻikai te ke mate. 25 Pea kapau ʻe fanongo ʻe he houʻeiki kuo tā alea mo koe, pea te nau haʻu kiate koe, pea pehē kiate koe, ‘Fakahā mai kiate kimautolu ʻaia kuo ke tala ki he tuʻi, ʻoua naʻa fakafufū ia ʻiate kimautolu, pea ʻe ʻikai te mau tāmateʻi koe; pea mo e meʻa foki kuo lea ʻaki ʻe he tuʻi kiate koe:’ 26 Pea ke ke pehē kiate kinautolu, ‘Naʻaku fai ʻeku kole ʻi he ʻao ʻoe tuʻi, ke ʻoua naʻa pule ia ke toe ʻave au ki he fale ʻo Sonatani ke u mate ai.’ ”
27 Pea naʻe haʻu ʻae houʻeiki kotoa pē kia Selemaia pea fehuʻi kiate ia: pea ne fakahā kiate kinautolu, ʻo hangē ko e ngaahi lea ni kotoa pē ʻaia naʻe fekau ʻe he tuʻi. Pea naʻe ʻikai te nau toe lea kiate ia; he naʻe ʻikai ke hā mai ʻae talanoa.
28 Pea naʻe nofo ʻa Selemaia ki he lotoʻā ʻoe fale fakapōpula ʻo aʻu ki he ʻaho naʻe kapa ai ʻa Selūsalema: pea naʻe ʻi ai ia ʻi he kapa ʻo Selūsalema.
