1 ʻAe kovi ʻo Selūsalema ko e meʻa ʻi heʻene angahala. 12 ʻOku ne tangi koeʻuhi ko ʻene mamahi, 18 Pea ʻoku fakahā ʻoku māʻoniʻoni ʻae ngaahi fakamaau ʻae ʻOtua.
‌ʻOIAU! ʻAe nofo lala pe ʻae kolo
ʻaia naʻe pito ʻi he kakai!
Kuo ne hoko ʻo hangē ko e fefine kuo mate hono ʻunoho!
Ko ia, ʻaia naʻe lahi ʻi he ngaahi puleʻanga,
pea hangē ko e ʻeiki fefine ki he ngaahi potu puleʻanga,
kuo hoko ia ko e fai tukuhau!
 
‌ʻOku ne tangi mamahi ʻi he pō,
pea ʻoku ʻi hono kouʻahe ʻa hono loʻimata;
ʻi heʻene ngaahi kaumeʻa kotoa pē,
ʻoku ʻikai ha taha ke fakafiemālie ia:
kuo fai kākā ʻa ʻene ngaahi kaumeʻa kotoa pē kiate ia,
kuo nau hoko ko hono ngaahi fili.
 
Kuo ʻalu ʻa Siuta ki he pōpula, koeʻuhi ko e mamahi pea koeʻuhi ko e ngāue lahi:
ʻoku ne nofo mo e hiteni,
ʻoku ʻikai te ne ʻilo ha fiemālie:
naʻe maʻu ia ʻe he kau fakatanga kotoa pē ʻi he ngaahi potu lausiʻi.
 
‌ʻOku tangi ʻae ngaahi hala ʻo Saione,
koeʻuhi ʻoku ʻikai ha niʻihi ke haʻu ki he ngaahi kātoanga mamafa:
ʻoku lala hono ngaahi matapā kotoa pē:
ʻoku mafulu ʻene kau taulaʻeiki,
ʻoku mamahiʻia ʻene kau tāupoʻou,
pea ʻoku ne ʻi he kona.
 
‌ʻOku māʻolunga ʻa hono ngaahi fili,
ʻoku tupu lelei hono ngaahi fili;
he kuo fakamamahiʻi ia ʻe Sihova koeʻuhi ko e lahi ʻo ʻene ngaahi angahala:
kuo ʻalu ʻene fānau ki he pōpula ʻi he ʻao ʻoe fili.
 
Pea kuo mole ʻae hoihoifua kotoa pē mei he ʻofefine ʻo Saione:
kuo hoko ʻa ʻene ngaahi houʻeiki ʻo hangē ko e fanga haʻate ʻoku ʻikai ke ʻilo ha potu ke kai,
pea kuo nau hola taʻehamālohi ʻi he ʻao ʻo ia ʻoku tuli.
 
Naʻe manatu ʻe Selūsalema ʻi he ngaahi ʻaho ʻo ʻene mahaki mo ʻene ngaahi mamahi,
ʻa ʻene meʻa mālie kotoa pē ʻaia naʻa ne maʻu ʻi he ngaahi ʻaho ʻi muʻa,
ʻaia naʻe tō ʻa ʻene kakai ki he nima ʻoe fili,
pea naʻe ʻikai ha tokoni kiate ia:
naʻe mamata ʻae kau fili kiate ia pea nau taukae ki hono ngaahi ʻaho tapu.
Kuo fai kovi lahi ʻe Selūsalema ko ia kuo fetukutuku ai ia:
ko kinautolu kotoa pē naʻe fakaʻapaʻapa kiate ia ʻoku nau manuki ki ai,
koeʻuhi kuo nau mamata ki heʻene telefua:
ʻio, ʻoku ne mafulu pea foki ki mui.
‌ʻOku ʻi hono kapaʻi kofu ʻā ʻene ʻuli;
ʻoku ʻikai ha manatu ʻiate ia ki hono ngataʻanga;
ko ia naʻa ne tō hifo fakamanavahē:
naʻe ʻikai ʻiate ia ha taha ke fakafiemālie.
ʻE Sihova ke ke ʻafio ki heʻeku mamahi:
he kuo fakahikihiki ʻe ia ia, ʻe he fili.
10 Kuo mafao ʻae fili ʻa hono nima ki heʻene ngaahi meʻa lelei kotoa pē:
he kuo ne mamata naʻe hū ʻae hiteni ki hono potu tapu,
ʻaia naʻa ke fekau, ke ʻoua naʻa nau hoko atu ki hoʻo kakai.
11 ‌ʻOku mafulu ʻa ʻene kakai kotoa pē, ʻoku nau kumi mā,
kuo nau foaki ʻenau ngaahi meʻa lelei ko e meʻakai, ke tokoni ʻae laumālie:
“ʻE Sihova ke ke ʻafio pea vakai;
he kuo u hoko ʻo fakalielia.”
12 “Ko ha meʻa noa pe eni kiate kimoutolu, ʻakimoutolu kotoa pē ʻoku ʻalu ange?
Vakai, pea mamata, pe ʻoku ai ha mamahi ʻo hangē ko ʻeku mamahi,
ʻaia ʻoku fai kiate au,
ʻaia kuo fakamamahi ʻaki au ʻe Sihova ʻi he ʻaho ʻo hono houhau lahi.
13 “Kuo ne fakahifo mei ʻolunga ʻae afi ki hoku ngaahi hui,
pea ʻoku ne mālohi ki ai:
kuo ne fola ha kupenga ki hoku vaʻe; kuo ne fakatafokiʻi au ki mui:
kuo ne ngaohi au ko e liʻaki mo e vaivai ʻi he ʻaho kotoa pē.
14 “Ko e noʻo ʻo ʻeku ngaahi angahala, kuo haʻi ʻaki hono nima:
ʻoku nau fihi,
pea ʻoku aʻu hake ki hoku kia: kuo ne pule ke hinga ʻa ʻeku mālohi,
kuo tukuange au ʻe Sihova ki honau nima,
pea ʻoku ʻikai te u mafai ke tuʻu hake.
 
15 “Kuo malaki hifo ʻe Sihova ʻa ʻeku kau tangata mālohi kotoa pē,
ʻi hoku haoʻanga: kuo ne ui ha fakataha kiate au ke taʻomia ʻeku kau talavou:
kuo molomoloki ʻe Sihova ʻae tāupoʻou, ko e ʻofefine ʻo Siuta, ʻo hangē ʻi ha tataʻoʻanga uaine.
 
16 “Koeʻuhi ko e ngaahi meʻa ni ʻoku ou tangi;
ko hoku mata, ko hoku mata ʻoku tafe hifo ʻi he vai,
koeʻuhi ʻoku mamaʻo meiate au ʻae fakafiemālie naʻe totonu ke tokoni hoku laumālie:
ʻoku liʻaki pe ʻeku fānau,
koeʻuhi naʻe mālohi mai ʻae fili.”
 
17 “ʻOku mafao atu ʻe Saione ʻa hono nima,
pea ʻoku ʻikai ha niʻihi ke fakafiemālie kiate ia:
kuo fekau ʻe Sihova kia Sēkope,
ke takatakai ia ʻe hono ngaahi fili:
ʻoku hangē ha fefine mahaki ʻa Selūsalema ʻiate kinautolu.
 
18 “ʻOku māʻoniʻoni ʻa Sihova;
he kuo u fai talangataʻa ki heʻene fekau;
ʻoku ou kole kiate kimoutolu ʻae kakai kotoa pē fanongo,
pea mou vakai ki heʻeku mamahi:
kuo ʻalu ʻeku kau tāupoʻou mo ʻeku kau talavou ki he pōpula.
 
19 “Ne u ui ki heʻeku kau mamana,
ka naʻa nau kākaaʻi au:
ko ʻeku kau taulaʻeiki mo ʻeku kau mātuʻa naʻa nau tukuange ʻa honau laumālie ʻi he kolo,
ʻi heʻenau kei kumi meʻakai ke fakafiemālie honau laumālie.
20 “ʻAfio mai ʻe Sihova, he ʻoku ou mamahi:
ʻoku ngaue mamahi hoku fatu;
kuo liliu hoku loto ʻiate au;
he kuo u fai talangataʻa ʻaupito;
ʻituʻa a ʻoku fakamasiva ʻe he heletā,
pea ʻoku ʻi he loto fale ʻae mate.
 
21 “Kuo nau fanongo ʻoku ou mafulu:
ʻoku ʻikai ha taha ke fakafiemālie kiate au,
kuo fanongo ʻa hoku ngaahi fili kotoa pē ki heʻeku mamahi;
ʻoku nau fiefia koeʻuhi kuo ke fai ia:
he te ke fakahokosia ʻae ʻaho kuo ke tuʻutuʻuni,
pea te nau hoko pe ʻo hangē ko au.
 
22 “Tuku ke hoko ki ho ʻao ʻa ʻenau ngaahi angahala kotoa pē;
pea ke fai kiate kinautolu, ʻo hangē ko ia kuo ke fai kiate au,
koeʻuhi ko ʻeku ngaahi angahala kotoa pē:
he ʻoku lahi ʻeku mafulu,
pea ʻoku vaivai hoku loto.”
