1 ʻOku fakahaofi ʻe Kalaisi ʻae fefine naʻe maʻu ʻi heʻene tono tangata. 12 ʻOku ne malangaʻaki ia ko e maama ʻo māmani, ʻo ne fakamoʻoni ʻene akonaki: 33 ʻOku ne talia ʻae kakai Siu ʻoku vikiviki kia ʻEpalahame, 59 ʻO ne fakahaofi ia mei heʻenau angakovi.
Ka naʻe ʻalu ʻa Sisu ki he moʻunga ʻoe ʻOlive. Pea toe haʻu hengihengi ia ki he falelotu lahi, pea haʻu ʻae kakai kotoa pē kiate ia; pea nofo ia, ʻo ako kiate kinautolu. Pea ko e kau tangata tohi mo e Fālesi naʻa nau ʻomi kiate ia ʻae fefine naʻe moʻua ʻi he tono tangata; ʻonau tuku ia ki he haʻohaʻonga, Pea nau pehē kiate ia, “Akonaki, naʻe moʻua ʻae fefine ni lolotonga ʻene tono tangata. Pea ko eni, naʻe fekau ʻe Mōsese kiate kimautolu ʻi he fono, ke tolongaki ia ʻaki ʻae maka: ka ko e hā hoʻo lea?” Naʻa nau lea pehē, ko ʻenau ʻahiʻahiʻi ia, koeʻuhi ke nau talakoviʻi ai ia. Ka naʻe tulolo hifo ʻa Sisu, pea tohi ʻaki hono tuhu ki he kelekele. Pea ʻi heʻenau kei fehuʻi pe kiate ia, naʻe tuʻu ki ʻolunga ia, ʻo ne pehē kiate kinautolu, “Ko ia ia ʻiate kimoutolu ʻoku taʻeangahala, ke lī ʻe ia ʻae fuofua maka ki ai.” Pea toe tulolo ia, ʻo tohi ki he kelekele. Pea ko kinautolu naʻe fanongo ai, ʻi he valokia ʻakinautolu ʻe honau ʻatamai, naʻa nau taki taha ʻalu kituʻa, ʻo fuofua fai mei he ki muʻa ʻo aʻu ki he ki mui: pea toe tokotaha ʻa Sisu, kae tuʻu ʻae fefine ʻi loto. 10 Pea kuo tuʻu hake ʻa Sisu, ʻo ʻikai mamata ki ha taha ka ko e fefine pe, pea pehē ʻe ia ki ai, “Fefine, ko e fē ʻakinautolu naʻa nau fakaʻiloʻi koe?” ʻOku ʻikai fakahalaia koe ʻe ha taha? 11 Pea pehē ʻe ia, “ʻEiki, ʻoku ʻikai ha taha. Pea talaange ʻe Sisu kiate ia, “Pea ʻoku ʻikai te u fakahalaia koe: ʻalu pea ʻoua ʻe toe fai angahala.”
12 ¶ Pea toe lea ai ʻa Sisu kiate kinautolu, ʻo pehē, “Ko au ko e maama ʻo māmani: ko ia ʻoku muimui ʻiate au, ʻe ʻikai ʻalu ia ʻi he poʻuli, ka ʻe ʻiate ia ʻae maama ʻoe moʻui.” 13 Ko ia naʻe pehē ai ʻae kau Fālesi kiate ia, “ʻOku ke fakamoʻoni kiate koe; ʻoku ʻikai moʻoni hoʻo fakamoʻoni. 14 Pea leaange ʻa Sisu, ʻo pehē kiate kinautolu, “ʻOku ou fakamoʻoni kiate au, ka ʻoku moʻoni ʻeku fakamoʻoni: he ʻoku ou ʻilo ʻaia ʻoku ou haʻu mei ai, mo ia ʻoku ou ʻalu ki ai; ka ʻoku ʻikai te mou ʻilo ʻaia ʻoku ou haʻu mei ai, pe ko ia ʻoku ou ʻalu ki ai. 15 ‌ʻOku mou fakamaau fakakakano pē; ʻoku ʻikai te u fakamaau ha tokotaha. 16 Pea kapau te u fakamaau, ʻoku moʻoni ʻeku fakamaau he ʻoku ʻikai teu tokotaha pe, ka ko au mo e Tamai naʻa ne fekau au. 17 Pea kuo tohi foki ʻi hoʻomou fono, ko e fakamoʻoni ʻae tangata ʻe toko ua ʻoku moʻoni. 18 Ko e tokotaha au ʻoku ou fakamoʻoni au, pea ko e Tamai naʻa ne fekau au ʻoku ne fakamoʻoni kiate au.” 19 Pea naʻa nau pehē kiate ia, “Ko e fē hoʻo Tamai? Pea talaange ʻe Sisu, ʻOku ʻikai te mou ʻilo au, pe ko ʻeku Tamai: ka ne mou ʻilo au, pehē, kuo mou ʻilo mo ʻeku Tamai foki. 20 Naʻe lea ʻaki ʻe Sisu ʻae ngaahi lea ni ʻi he tukunga koloa, ʻi heʻene akonaki ʻi he falelotu lahi: pea naʻe ʻikai puke ia ʻe ha taha; he naʻe teʻeki hokosia hono ʻaho. 21 Pea toe tala ʻe Sisu kiate kinautolu, “ʻOku ou ʻalu, pea te mou kumi kiate au, ka te mou mate ʻi hoʻomou angahala: ko e potu ʻoku ou ʻalu ki ai, ʻe ʻikai te mou hokosia.” 22 Pea pehē ai ʻae kakai Siu, “ʻE tāmateʻi ʻe ia ia? He ʻoku ne pehē, ‘Ko e potu ʻoku ou ʻalu ki ai, ʻe ʻikai te mou hokosia.’ ” 23 Pea tala ʻe ia kiate kinautolu, “ʻOku mei lalo ʻakimoutolu; ʻoku mei ʻolunga au: ʻoku ʻo māmani ʻakimoutolu; ʻoku ʻikai ʻo māmani au. 24 Ko ia naʻaku lea ai kiate kimoutolu, te mou mate ʻi hoʻomou angahala: he kapau ʻoku ʻikai te mou tui ‘ko au ia,’ te mou mate pe ʻi hoʻomou angahala.” 25 Pea naʻa nau lea ai kiate ia, “Ko hai koe?” Pea pehēange ʻe Sisu kiate kinautolu, “ʻAia pe naʻaku tala ʻi muʻa kiate kimoutolu.” 26 ‌ʻOku lahi ʻae meʻa ke u tala mo valokiʻi ʻiate kimoutolu: ka ko ia naʻa ne fekau au ʻoku moʻoni ia; pea ʻoku ou fakahā ki māmani ʻae ngaahi meʻa ko ia kuo u fanongo ʻiate ia. 27 Naʻe ʻikai te nau ʻilo ko ʻene lea kiate kinautolu ki he Tamai. 28 Pea pehē ai ʻe Sisu kiate kinautolu, “Hili hoʻomou hiki ki ʻolunga ʻae Foha ʻoe tangata, pea te mou toki ʻilo ‘ko au ia,’ pea mo ʻeku taʻefai-ha-meʻa ʻiate au pe; kae hangē hono akoʻi au ʻe heʻeku Tamai, ʻoku pehē ʻeku lea ki he ngaahi meʻa ni. 29 Pea ko ia naʻa ne fekau au ʻoku ʻiate au: ʻoku ʻikai siʻaki au ke tokotaha pe ʻe he Tamai; he ʻoku ou fai maʻuaipē ʻae ngaahi meʻa ʻoku lelei ai ia.” 30 Pea ʻi heʻene leaʻaki ʻae ngaahi lea ni, naʻe tui ʻae tokolahi kiate ia.
31 ¶ Pea pehē ai ʻe Sisu ki he kau Siu naʻe tui kiate ia, “Kapau te mou nofomaʻu ʻi heʻeku lea, pea ko ʻeku kau ākonga moʻoni ʻakimoutolu; 32 Pea te mou ʻilo ʻae moʻoni, pea ʻe fakatauʻatāinaʻi ʻakimoutolu ʻe he moʻoni.”
33 ¶ Pea pehē ʻe he niʻihi kiate ia, “Ko e hako ʻo ʻEpalahame ʻakimautolu, pea naʻe ʻikai te mau pōpula ki ha taha: pea ʻoku fēfeeʻi ʻa hoʻo lau, ‘ʻE fakatauʻatāinaʻi ʻakimoutolu?’ ” 34 Pea talaange ʻe Sisu kiate kinautolu, “Ko e moʻoni, ko e moʻoni, ʻoku ou tala atu kiate kimoutolu, Ko ia ʻoku fai angahala, ko e pōpula ia ki he angahala. 35 Pea ʻoku ʻikai nofomaʻuaipē ʻi he fale ʻae pōpula: ka ʻoku nofomaʻuaipē ʻae ʻAlo. 36 Ko ia kapau ʻe fakatauʻatāinaʻi ʻakimoutolu ʻe he ʻAlo, te mou tauʻatāina moʻoni. 37 ‌ʻOku ou ʻilo ko e hako ʻo ʻEpalahame ʻakimoutolu; ka ʻoku mou kumi ke tāmateʻi au, koeʻuhi ʻoku ʻikai ʻi homou loto ʻa ʻeku akonaki. 38 ‌ʻOku ou lea ʻaki ʻaia kuo u ʻiloʻi ʻi heʻeku Tamai: pea ʻoku mou fai ʻaia kuo mou ʻiloʻi ʻi hoʻomou tamai.” 39 Naʻa nau leaange, ʻo pehē kiate ia, “Ko ʻemau tamai ʻa ʻEpalahame.” Pea talaange ʻe Sisu kiate kinautolu, “Ka ne ko e fānau ʻa ʻEpalahame ʻakimoutolu, pehē, te mou fai ʻae ngaahi ngāue ʻa ʻEpalahame. 40 Ka ko eni ʻoku mou kumi ke tāmateʻi au, ko e tangata kuo tala ʻae moʻoni kiate kimoutolu, ʻaia kuo u fanongo ʻi he ʻOtua: naʻe ʻikai fai pehē ʻe ʻEpalahame. 41 ‌ʻOku mou fai ʻae ngāue ʻa hoʻomou tamai.” Pea naʻa nau pehē ai kiate ia, “ʻOku ʻikai te mau tupu ʻi he feʻauaki; ʻoku taha pe ʻemau Tamai, ko e ʻOtua.” 42 Pea talaange ʻe Sisu kiate kinautolu, “Ka ne ko hoʻomou Tamai ʻae ʻOtua, te mou ʻofa kiate au: he naʻaku tupu ai ʻo haʻu mei he ʻOtua; pea naʻe ʻikai te u haʻu ʻiate au pe, ka naʻa ne fekau au. 43 Ko e hā ʻoku ʻikai ai te mou ʻilo ʻeku lea? Ka koeʻuhi ʻoku ʻikai te mou fie fai ki heʻeku akonaki. 44 ‌ʻOku mou ʻi hoʻomou tamai ko e tēvolo, pea ko e holi ʻa hoʻomou tamai te mou fai. Ko e fakapō ia talu mei he kamataʻanga, pea naʻe ʻikai nofomaʻu ʻi he moʻoni koeʻuhi ʻoku ʻikai ha moʻoni ʻiate ia. ʻOka lea ʻaki ʻe ia ʻae loi, ʻoku ne lea ʻaki ʻene meʻa ʻaʻana: he ko e loi ia, mo e tamai ʻo ia. 45 Pea ko e meʻa ʻi heʻeku tala ʻae moʻoni kiate kimoutolu, ʻoku ʻikai ai te mou tui kiate au. 46 Ko hai ʻiate kimoutolu ʻoku ne fakaʻilo haʻaku angahala? Pea kapau ʻoku ou lea ʻaki ʻae moʻoni ko e hā ʻoku ʻikai ai te mou tui kiate au? 47 Ko ia ʻoku ʻi he ʻOtua, ʻoku fanongo ia ki he ngaahi folofola ʻae ʻOtua: pea pehē, ʻoku ʻikai te mou fanongo, koeʻuhi ʻoku ʻikai ʻi he ʻOtua ʻakimoutolu.” 48 Pea leaange ʻae kakai Siu, ʻonau pehē kiate ia, “ʻIkai ʻoku moʻoni ʻemau pehē, Ko e Samēlia koe, pea ʻoku ʻiate koe ha tēvolo?” 49 Pea talaange ʻe Sisu, “ʻOku ʻikai ha tēvolo ʻiate au; ka ʻoku ou fakaʻapaʻapa ki heʻeku Tamai, pea ʻoku mou fakalieliaʻi au. 50 Pea ʻoku ʻikai teu kumi ʻae ongoongolelei ʻo ʻoku: ʻoku ai ha tokotaha ʻoku ne kumiʻi mo fakamaauʻi. 51 Ko e moʻoni, ko e moʻoni, ʻoku ou tala kiate kimoutolu, Kapau ʻe fai ʻe ha tangata ki heʻeku lea, ʻe ʻikai ʻaupito mamata ia ki he mate.” 52 Pea lea ai ʻae kakai Siu kiate ia, “Ta ʻoku mau ʻilo ʻeni ʻoku ʻiate koe ha tēvolo. Kuo mate ʻa ʻEpalahame, mo e kau palōfita; ka ʻoku ke pehē, Kapau ʻe fai ʻe ha tangata ki heʻeku lea, ʻe ʻikai ʻaupito te ne kamata ʻae mate. 53 ‌ʻOku ke lahi koe ki heʻemau tamai ko ʻEpalahame, ʻaia kuo mate? Pea, mate mo e kau palōfita: ʻoku ke pehē ko hai koe?” 54 Pea talaange ʻe Sisu, “Kapau te u fakaongolelei au, ko e meʻa noa pē ʻeku fakaongo: ko ʻeku Tamai ko ia ia ʻoku ne fakaongoleleiʻi au; ʻaia ʻoku mou pehē ai, ko homou ʻOtua ia: 55 Ka kuo ʻikai te mou ʻilo ia, ka ʻoku ou ʻilo ia: pea kapau te u pehē, ʻOku ʻikai te u ʻiloa ia, te u loi au ʻo hangē ko kimoutolu: ka ʻoku ou ʻilo ia, pe au tuitala ki heʻene folofola. 56 Naʻe mātuʻaki fiefia ʻa hoʻomou tamai ko ʻEpalahame ke mamata ki hoku ʻaho: pea naʻe mamata ia, pea fiefia. 57 Pea lea ʻae kakai Siu kiate ia, “ʻOku teʻeki ai nimangofulu taʻu ho motuʻa, pea kuo ke mamata kia ʻEpalahame?” 58 Pea talaange ʻe Sisu kiate kinautolu, “Ko e moʻoni, ko e moʻoni, ʻoku ou tala kiate kimoutolu, Ki muʻa ʻia ʻEpalahame, ‘ʻOku ou ʻi ai au.’ ” 59 Pea naʻa nau toʻo hake ʻae ngaahi maka, ke nau lisingi ʻaki ia; ka naʻe fufū ʻe Sisu ia, pea ʻalu ia ʻi honau lotolotonga mei he falelotu lahi, pea hao ai.
