Tongan Bible (Revised West Version) Tangilāulau 2
2
1 ʻOku tangi ʻa Selemaia ʻi he mamahi ʻo Selūsalema. 20 ʻOku ne fakahā ia ki he ʻOtua.
Hono ʻikai ʻufiʻufi ʻe Sihova ʻae ʻofefine ʻo Saione ʻaki ʻae ʻao ʻi hono houhau!
Pea fakahifo mei he langi ki māmani ʻae nāunau ʻo ʻIsileli,
pea taʻemanatu ki hono tuʻunga vaʻe ʻi he ʻaho ʻo hono houhau!
 
Kuo folo hifo ʻe Sihova ʻae ngaahi nofoʻanga ʻo Sēkope,
pea naʻe ʻikai te ne manavaʻofa;
kuo ne holoki hifo ʻi hono houhau ʻae ngaahi potu mālohi ʻoe ʻofefine ʻo Siuta;
kuo ne hifo ʻakinautolu ki he kelekele:
kuo ne fakaʻuliʻi ʻae puleʻanga mo e ngaahi houʻeiki ʻo ia.
 
Kuo ne tutuʻu ʻi hono houhau lahi ʻae nifo kotoa pē ʻo ʻIsileli:
kuo ne toʻo ʻa hono nima toʻomataʻu mei he ʻao ʻoe fili,
pea ne vela kia Sēkope ʻo hangē ko e afi kakaha,
ʻaia ʻoku fakaʻauha takatakai.
Kuo ne teke ʻa ʻene kaufana ʻo hangē ha fili:
naʻa ne tuʻu mai mo hono nima toʻomataʻu ʻo hangē ha fili,
pea ne tāmateʻi ʻakinautolu kotoa pē naʻe hoihoifua
ʻi he fale fehikitaki ʻoe ʻofefine ʻo Saione: naʻa ne lilingi hono houhau ʻo hangē ko e afi.
 
Naʻe hoko ʻa Sihova ke tatau mo e fili:
kuo ne folo hifo ʻa ʻIsileli,
kuo ne folo hifo ʻa hono ngaahi fale lelei kotoa pē:
kuo ne maumauʻi ʻa hono ngaahi potu mālohi,
pea kuo ne fakatupu ki he ʻofefine ʻo Saione ʻae mamahi mo e tangi.
 
Pea kuo ne ʻave fakamālohi ʻa hono fale fehikitaki,
ʻo hangē ko ha meʻa ʻoe ngoue:
kuo ne fakaʻauha ʻae ngaahi potu ʻoe fakataha:
kuo ngaohi ʻe Sihova ke ngalo ʻae ngaahi kātoanga mamafa mo e ngaahi ʻaho tapu ʻi Saione,
pea kuo ne manuki ʻi hono houhau lahi ʻae tuʻi mo e taulaʻeiki.
 
Kuo liʻaki ʻe Sihova ʻa hono feilaulauʻanga,
kuo ne fehiʻa ki hono potu tapu,
kuo ne tukuange ki he nima ʻoe fili ʻae ngaahi holisi ʻo hono ngaahi fale lelei;
kuo nau mavava ʻi he fale ʻo Sihova,
ʻo hangē ʻi he ʻaho ʻoe kātoanga mamafa.
 
Kuo finangalo ʻa Sihova ke maumau ʻae ʻaa ʻoe ʻofefine ʻo Saione:
kuo ne falō ha afo,
naʻe ʻikai te ne taʻofi hono nima mei he fakaʻauha:
ko ia naʻa ne ngaohi ʻae tanu mo e ʻaa ke tangi;
naʻa nau fakaʻaʻau ki mui fakataha.
 
Kuo ngalo hifo ʻi he kelekele ʻa hono ngaahi matapā:
kuo ne fesiʻi mo maumauʻi hono ngaahi ʻakau songo;
ʻoku ʻi he kakai Senitaile ʻa hono tuʻi mo hono houʻeiki: ʻoku ʻikai ha fono:
ko ʻene kau palōfita foki ʻoku ʻikai ke kei ʻilo ha meʻa hā mai meia Sihova.
 
10 ‌ʻOku nofo hifo ʻi he kelekele
pea ʻoku longo pe ʻae kau mātuʻa ʻoe ʻofefine ʻo Saione:
kuo nau pani efu ʻa honau ʻulu;
kuo nau fakavala ʻaki ʻakinautolu ʻae tauangaʻa:
ko e kau tāupoʻou ʻo Selūsalema ʻoku nau fakatōmapeʻe honau ʻulu ʻo aʻu ki he kelekele.
 
11 ‌ʻOku vaivai ʻi he loʻimata ʻa hoku mata,
ʻoku ngaue hoku fatu,
ʻoku lilingi hoku ʻate ki he kelekele,
ko e meʻa ʻi he fakaʻauha ʻae ʻofefine ʻo hoku kakai;
koeʻuhi ʻoku pongia ʻae tamaiki mo e kau valevale ʻi he ngaahi hala ʻoe kolo.
12 ‌ʻOku nau pehē ki heʻenau ngaahi faʻē,
“Kofaʻā ʻae koane mo e uaine?”
ʻI heʻenau pongia ʻo hangē ko e kau kafo ʻi he hala ʻoe kolo,
ʻi he ʻaho ko ia, ʻaia naʻe lilingi ai ʻa honau laumālie ki he fatafata ʻo ʻenau ngaahi faʻē.
 
13 Ko e hā te u ʻatu ke fakamoʻoni kiate koe?
Ko e hā te u fakatātā ʻaki kiate koe ʻe ʻofefine ʻo Selūsalema?
Ko e hā te u fakatatau mo koe,
koeʻuhi ke u fakafiemālieʻi koe ʻe ʻofefine ʻo Saione?
He ko hoʻo maumau ʻoku lahi ʻo hangē ko e lahi:
ko hai ʻe fakamoʻui koe?
 
14 Kuo ʻilo ʻe hoʻo kau palōfita ʻae ngaahi meʻa vaʻinga mo vale koeʻuhi ko koe:
pea naʻe ʻikai te nau fakahā hoʻo kovi
koeʻuhi ke fakaʻafeʻi hoʻo pōpula;
ka kuo nau ʻilo koeʻuhi ko koe ʻae ngaahi kikite loi, mo ngaahi meʻa fakahē.
 
15 ‌ʻOku pasi kiate koe ʻakinautolu kotoa pē ʻoku ʻalu ange;
ʻoku nau ʻisa mo kalokalo honau ʻulu ki he ʻofefine ʻo Selusalema,
ʻo nau pehē, “Ko eni koā ʻae kolo ʻaia ʻoku ui ʻe he kakai ko e toulekeleka haohaoa,
ko e fiefiaʻanga ʻo māmani kotoa pē?”
16 Kuo fakamanga honau ngutu kiate koe ʻe ho kau fili kotoa pē:
ʻoku nau ʻisa pea fengaiʻitaki ʻae nifo:
ʻonau pehē, “Kuo tau folo hifo ia:
ko e moʻoni ko eni ʻae ʻaho naʻa tau ʻamanaki ki ai kuo tau ʻilo,
kuo tau mamata ai.”
 
17 Kuo fai ʻe Sihova ʻaia naʻa ne filioʻi;
kuo ne fakamoʻoni ki heʻene folofola ʻaia naʻa ne fekau ʻi he ngaahi ʻaho ʻi muʻa:
kuo ne holoki hifo,
pea naʻe ʻikai te ne manavaʻofa;
pea kuo ne pule ke fiefia ho fili kiate koe,
kuo ne fokotuʻu ki ʻolunga ʻae nifo ʻo ho kau fili.
 
18 Naʻe tangi honau loto kia Sihova,
ʻE ʻā ʻoe ʻofefine ʻo Saione,
tuku ke tafe hifo ʻae ngaahi loʻimata ʻi he ʻaho mo e pō, ʻo hangē ha vaitafe:
ʻoua naʻa ke mālōlō; ke ʻoua naʻa tuku ʻe ho kanoʻi mata.
 
19 Tuʻu hake, pea ke kalanga ʻi he pō,
ʻi he kamataʻanga ʻoe ngaahi leʻo,
huaʻi ho loto ʻo hangē ko e vai ʻi he ʻao ʻoe fofonga ʻoe ʻEiki:
hiki hake ho nima kiate ia koeʻuhi ke moʻui ʻa hoʻo tamaiki iiki,
ʻaia ʻoku mate fiekaia, ʻi he muʻa hala kotoa pē.
 
20 “ʻE ʻEiki ke ke vakai pea tokanga kiate kinautolu kuo ke fai pehē ki ai.
ʻE kai ʻe he kau fefine ʻa honau fua,
mo e tamaiki, ʻoku hanga pe taha ʻa honau lōloa?
ʻE mate tāmateʻi, ʻae taulaʻeiki mo e palōfita ʻi he fale tapu ʻo Sihova?
 
21 “ʻAe kakai talavou mo e mātuʻa ʻoku nau tokoto ʻi he kelekele ʻi he ngaahi hala:
kuo tō ʻi he heletā ʻeku kau tāupoʻou mo ʻeku kau talavou:
kuo ke tāmateʻi ʻakinautolu ʻi he ʻaho ʻo ho houhau;
kuo ke tāmateʻi pea ʻikai manavaʻofa.
 
22 Kuo ke uiuiʻi ʻae ngaahi fakamanavahē ke kāpui au, ʻo hangē ʻi ha ʻaho mamafa,
ko ia naʻe ʻikai siʻi ke hao pe toe ha niʻihi ʻi he ʻaho ʻoe houhau ʻo Sihova:
ʻakinautolu naʻe fakakofuʻi mo tauhiʻi ʻeau kuo fakaʻauha ʻe he fili.
