1 Ko e kapa ʻo Selūsalema. 4 Ko e fakakui ʻa Selikia, pea ʻave ia ki Papilone. 8 Ko e tutu ʻoe kolo, pea ʻave fakapōpula ʻae kakai. 11 Ko e fekau ʻa Nepukanesa ke fai lelei kia Selemaia. 15 Ko e talaʻofa ʻae ʻOtua kia ʻIpetemeleki.
‌ʻI hono hiva ʻoe taʻu ʻo Setikia ko e tuʻi ʻo Siuta, pea ʻi hono hongofulu ʻoe māhina, naʻe haʻu ʻa Nepukanesa ko e tuʻi ʻo Papilone mo ʻene kautau kotoa pē ki Selūsalema, ʻonau kāpui ia. Pea naʻe lavaʻi ʻae kolo, ʻi hono hongofulu ma taha ʻoe taʻu ʻo Setikia, ʻi hono fā ʻoe māhina, pea mo hono hiva ʻoe ʻaho ʻoe māhina. Pea naʻe haʻu ʻae houʻeiki kotoa pē ʻoe tuʻi ʻo Papilone, ʻo nofo ki he matapā ʻi loto, ko Nekalisalesa, mo Samikanipo, mo Sasekimi, mo Lapasalisi, mo Nekalisalesa, mo Lapamaki, mo hono toe kotoa pē ʻoe houʻeiki ʻoe tuʻi ʻo Papilone.
¶ Pea naʻe hoko ʻo pehē, ʻi he mamata kiate kinautolu ʻa Setikia ko e tuʻi ʻo Siuta, mo e kau tau kotoa pē, naʻa nau hola, pea ʻalu mei he kolo ʻi he poʻuli, ʻi he hala ʻoe ngoue ʻae tuʻi, ʻi he matapā ʻi he vahaʻa ʻoe ongo ʻā: pea naʻe ʻalu atu ia ʻi he hala ʻoe toafa. Ka naʻe tuli ʻakinautolu ʻe he kau tau ʻae kau Kalitia, pea maʻu ʻa Setikia ʻi he toafa ʻo Seliko: pea kuo nau maʻu ia, naʻa nau ʻomi ia kia Nepukanesa ko e tuʻi ʻo Papilone ki Lipila ki he fonua ko Hamati, pea ne fakamaau ia ʻi ai. Pea naʻe tāmateʻi ʻi Lipila ʻe he tuʻi ʻo Papilone ʻae ngaahi foha ʻo Setikia ʻi hono ʻao: pea tāmateʻi foki ʻe he tuʻi ʻo Papilone ʻae ngaahi houʻeiki kotoa pē ʻo Siuta. Pea naʻe kapeʻi ʻae mata ʻo Setikia, pea haʻisia ʻaki ia ʻae ngaahi maea ukamea fihifihi, ke ʻave ia ki Papilone.
¶ Pea naʻe tutu ʻaki ʻae afi ʻe he kau Kalitia ʻae fale ʻoe tuʻi, pea mo e ngaahi fale ʻoe kakai, pea laku hifo ʻae ngaahi ʻā ʻo Selūsalema. Pea naʻe ʻave fakapōpula ki Papilone ʻe Nepusaatani ko e ʻeiki ʻoe kau leʻo, ʻae toenga kakai naʻe toe ʻi he kolo, pea ko kinautolu kuo ʻalu ange kiate ia, ʻio, ko e toenga kakai ʻokinautolu naʻe toe. 10 Ka naʻe tuku ʻe Nepusaatani ko e ʻeiki ʻoe kau leʻo ʻae kakai masiva, ʻakinautolu naʻe ʻikai haʻanau meʻa ʻi he fonua ko Siuta, pea ne foaki kiate kinautolu ʻi he ʻaho ko ia ʻae ngaahi ngoue vaine, pea mo e ngaahi ngoue.
11 ¶ Pea naʻe fekau ʻe Nepukanesa ko e tuʻi ʻo Papilone, kia Nepusaatani ko e ʻeiki ʻoe kau leʻo koeʻuhi ko Selemaia, ʻo pehē, 12 “ʻAve ia, pea fai lelei kiate ia, pea ʻoua naʻa fai kovi kiate ia; ka ke fai kiate ia ʻo hangē ko ʻene lea kiate koe.”
13 Pea naʻe fekau ʻe Nepusaatani ko e ʻeiki ʻoe kau leʻo, pea mo Nepusasipani, mo Lapasalisi, mo Nekalisalesa, mo Lapamaki, pea mo e houʻeiki kotoa pē ʻae tuʻi ʻo Papilone; 14 Pea naʻa nau fekau ke ʻomi ʻa Selemaia mei he lotoʻā ʻoe fale fakapōpula, pea nau tuku ia kia Ketalia ko e foha ʻo ʻAhikami ko e foha ʻo Safani, ke taki ia ki hono ʻapi: pea nau nofo mo e kakai.
15 ¶ Pea naʻe haʻu ʻae folofola ʻa Sihova kia Selemaia, ʻi heʻene kei moʻua he lotoʻā ʻoe fale fakapōpula, ʻo pehē, 16 “ʻAlu ʻo lea kia ʻIpetemeleki ko e ʻItiopea, ʻo pehē, ʻOku pehē mai ʻa Sihova ʻoe ngaahi kautau, ko e ʻOtua ʻo ʻIsileli; Vakai, te u fakahoko ʻeku ngaahi lea ke kovi ai ʻae kolo ni, ka e ʻikai ke lelei; pea ʻe fakamoʻoni ia ʻi ho ʻao ʻi he ʻaho ko ia. 17 Ka ʻoku pehē ʻe Sihova, Te u fakamoʻui koe ʻi he ʻaho ko ia: pea ʻe ʻikai tukuange koe ki he nima ʻoe kau tangata ʻoku ke manavahē ki ai. 18 He ko e moʻoni te u fakamoʻui koe, pea ʻe ʻikai te ke tō ʻi he heletā, ka te ke maʻu hoʻo moʻui kiate koe ʻo hangē ko e koloa kuo vetea: koeʻuhi kuo ke falala kiate au, ʻoku pehē mai ʻa Sihova.”
