1 ʻOku tokanga ʻa Sohanani ke ʻeke ʻe Selemaia ki he ʻOtua, pea ne fakahā te ne fai talangofua kia Sihova. 7 ʻOku fakahā ʻe Selemaia ʻe maluʻi ia ʻi Siuta, 13 Kae fakaʻauha ʻi ʻIsipite. 19 ʻOku ne valoki ki heʻenau kākā, ʻi heʻenau kole kia Sihova ʻaia naʻe ʻikai te nau loto ki ai.
Pea naʻe haʻu ʻo ofi ʻae houʻeikitau kotoa pē, mo Sohanani ko e foha ʻo Kalia, pea mo Seasania ko e foha ʻo Hosaia, pea mo e kakai kotoa pē mei he iiki ʻo aʻu ki he lalahi, Pea naʻa nau lea kia Selemaia ko e palōfita, “ʻOku mau kole kiate koe, tuku ke lelei ʻi ho ʻao ʻemau kole, pea hūfia ʻakimautolu kia Sihova ko ho ʻOtua, koeʻuhi ko kimautolu kotoa pē ʻoku toe; (he ko e toenga tokosiʻi ʻakimautolu ʻoe tokolahi, ʻo hangē ko ia ʻoku ke mamata ki ai:) Koeʻuhi ke fakahā kiate kimautolu ʻe Sihova ko ho ʻOtua ʻae hala te mau ʻalu ai, pea mo e meʻa te mau fai.”
Pea pehē ʻe Selemaia, “Ko e palōfita kiate kinautolu, kuo u fanongo kiate kimoutolu; vakai, te u lotu kia Sihova ko homou ʻOtua ʻo hangē ko hoʻomou ngaahi lea; pea ʻe hoko ʻo pehē, ko e meʻa kotoa pē ʻe tali ai ʻe Sihova kiate kimoutolu, te u fakahā ia kiate kimoutolu; ʻe ʻikai te u taʻofi ha meʻa meiate kimoutolu.”
Pea naʻa nau toki pehē kia Selemaia, “Ke ʻiate kitautolu ʻa Sihova ko e fakamoʻoni angatonu mo moʻoni, kapau ʻe ʻikai te mau fai ʻo hangē ko e ngaahi meʻa kotoa pē ʻaia ʻe fekau ai koe ʻe Sihova ko ho ʻOtua kiate kimautolu. Kapau ʻoku lelei ia pe kovi, te mau talangofua ki he leʻo ʻo Sihova ko hotau ʻOtua, ʻaia ʻoku mau fekau koe ki ai; koeʻuhi ke lelei ia kiate kimautolu, ʻoka mau ka talangofua ki he leʻo ʻo Sihova ko hotau ʻOtua.”
¶ Pea naʻe hoko ʻo pehē ʻi he hili ʻae ʻaho ʻe hongofulu, naʻe hoko mai ʻae folofola ʻa Sihova kia Selemaia. Pea ne ui kia Sohanani ko e foha ʻo Kalia, mo e houʻeikitau kotoa pē naʻe ʻiate ia, pea mo e kakai kotoa pē ʻo fai mei he iiki ʻo aʻu ki he lalahi, Pea ne pehē kiate kinautolu, “ʻOku pehē mai ʻa Sihova, ko e ʻOtua ʻo ʻIsileli, ʻaia naʻa mou fekau au ki ai ke ʻatu hoʻomou kole ʻi hono ʻao; 10 ‘Kapau ʻoku mou loto ke nofo ʻi he fonua ni te u langa ʻakimoutolu pea ʻe ʻikai veteki hifo ʻakimoutolu, te u tō ʻakimoutolu pea ʻe ʻikai taʻaki hake ʻakimoutolu: he ʻoku ou fakatomala ʻi he kovi kuo u fai kiate kimoutolu. 11 Pea ʻoua naʻa manavahē ki he tuʻi ʻo Papilone, ʻaia ʻoku mou manavahē ki ai;’ ʻoku pehē ʻe Sihova, ‘ʻOua naʻa manavahē kiate ia: he ʻoku ou ʻiate kimoutolu ke fakamoʻui ʻakimoutolu, pea ke fakahaofi ʻakimoutolu mei hono nima. 12 Pea te u fakahā ʻeku ngaahi ʻaloʻofa kiate kimoutolu, koeʻuhi ke ne ʻofa kiate kimoutolu, pea pule kiate kimoutolu ke mou liliu ki homou fonua.
13 ¶ “ ‘Pea kapau te mou lea ʻo pehē, “ʻE ʻikai te mau nofo ʻi he fonua ni,” pe fai talangofua ki he leʻo ʻo Sihova ko homou ʻOtua. 14 ‌ʻO lea pehē, ‘ʻE ʻikai; ka te mau ʻalu ki he fonua ko ʻIsipite, pea ʻe ʻikai te mau mamata ai ki he tau, pe fanongo ki he meʻalea, pe fiekaia, pea te mau nofo ʻi ai:” ’ 15 Pea ko ia mou fanongo ni ki he folofola ʻa Sihova, ʻakimoutolu ʻae toenga ʻo Siuta; ʻoku pehē ʻe Sihova ʻoe ngaahi kautau, ko e ʻOtua ʻo ʻIsileli; ‘Kapau, ʻoku pau ke hanga atu homou mata ke ʻalu ki ʻIsipite, pea ʻāunofo ʻi ai; 16 Pea ʻe hoko ʻo pehē, ko e heletā ʻaia naʻa mou manavahē ki ai, te ne tuli ʻo maʻu ʻakimoutolu ʻi he fonua ko ʻIsipite, pea mo e honge, ʻaia naʻa mou manavahē ki ai, te ne muimui ʻo ofi kiate kimoutolu ʻi ʻIsipite, pea te mou mate ʻi ai. 17 Pea ʻe hoko ʻo pehē ki he kau tangata kotoa pē, ʻe fakahangatonu honau mata ke ʻalu ki ʻIsipite ke ʻāunofo ki ai; te nau mate ʻi he heletā, mo e honge, pea mo e mahaki fakaʻauha: pea ʻe ʻikai toe ha tokotaha ʻiate kinautolu, pe hao mei he kovi ʻaia te u fakahoko kiate kinautolu.’ 18 He ʻoku pehē ʻe Sihova ʻoe ngaahi kautau, ko e ʻOtua ʻo ʻIsileli; ‘ʻO hangē kuo lilingi ʻeku tuputāmaki mo hoku houhau ki he kakai ʻo Selūsalema; ʻe pehē hono lilingi atu ʻa hoku houhau kiate kimoutolu, ʻoka mou ka ʻalu ki ʻIsipite: pea te mou hoko ko e fehiʻanekina, mo e meʻa fakaofo, mo e fakamalaʻia, pea mo e ongoongo kovi; pea ʻe ʻikai te mou toe mamata ki he potu ni.’
19 ¶ “Kuo folofola ʻe Sihova kiate kimoutolu ʻo pehē, ʻakimoutolu ʻae toenga kakai ʻo Siuta; “ʻOua naʻa mou ʻalu ki ʻIsipite: ka mou ʻilo fakapapau kuo u akonaki kiate kimoutolu ʻi he ʻaho ni. 20 He naʻa mou fai kākā ʻi homou loto, ʻi hoʻomou fekau au kia Sihova ko homou ʻOtua, ʻo pehē, ‘Hūfia ʻakimautolu kia Sihova ko hotau ʻOtua; pea hangē ko e meʻa kotoa pē ʻoku folofola ʻaki ʻe Sihova ko hotau ʻOtua, ko ia ʻe fakahā kiate kimautolu, pea te mau fai ia.’ 21 Pea kuo u fakahā ia kiate kimoutolu ʻi he ʻaho ni; ka ʻoku ʻikai te mou talangofua ki he leʻo ʻo Sihova ko homou ʻOtua, ʻi ha meʻa ʻe taha ʻaia kuo ne fekau ai au kiate kimoutolu. 22 Pea ko ia mou ʻilo fakapapau, te mou mate ʻi he heletā, mo e honge, pea mo e mahaki fakaʻauha, ʻi he potu ʻaia ʻoku mou holi ke ʻalu ʻo ʻāunofo ai.”
