Tongan Bible (Revised West Version) Luke 15
15
1 Ko e lea fakatātā ʻoe sipi naʻe mole: 8 Mo e paʻanga: 11 Mo e foha naʻe maumau koloa.
Pea naʻe feʻunui atu ai kiate ia ʻae kau tānaki tukuhau mo e kau angahala kotoa pē, ke fanongo kiate ia. Pea naʻe lāunga ʻae kau Fālesi mo e kau tangata tohi, ʻo pehē, “ʻOku maʻu ʻe he tangata ni ʻae kau angahala, ʻo kai mo kinautolu.”
¶ Pea ne lea ʻaki ʻae fakatātā ni kiate kinautolu, ʻo pehē, “Ko hai ha tangata ʻiate kimoutolu ʻoku teau ʻene sipi, pea ka mole honau taha, ʻe ʻikai tuku ʻae hivangofulu ma hiva ʻi he toafa, kae ʻalu ʻo kumi ʻaia kuo mole, kaeʻoua ke ne ʻilo ia? Pea ka ʻiloʻi ʻe ia, ʻoku ne hili ia ki hono uma, pea fiefia. Pea ka haʻu ia ki ʻapi, ʻoku ne ui ke fakataha ʻae kāinga mo e kaungāʻapi, ʻone pehē kiate kinautolu, ‘Tau fiefia mo au, he kuo u ʻilo ʻa ʻeku sipi ʻaia naʻe mole.’ ‌ʻOku ou tala atu kiate kimoutolu, ʻE pehē foki ʻae fiefia ʻi he langi ʻo lahi ʻi he fakatomala ʻae angahala ʻe tokotaha, ʻi he angatonu ʻe toko hivangofulu ma toko hiva, ʻoku ʻikai ʻaonga ke nau fakatomala.
¶ “Pea ko hai ha fefine ʻoku hongofulu ʻene paʻanga siliva, pea ka mole ha paʻanga ʻe taha, ʻe ʻikai te ne tutu ʻae maama, mo tafi ʻae fale, ʻo kumi lahi, kaeʻoua ke ʻilo ia? Pea ka ʻiloia, ʻoku ne ui ke fakataha ʻae kāinga mo e kaungāʻapi, ʻo ne pehē, ‘Tau fiefia mo au, he kuo u ʻilo ʻae paʻanga naʻe mole ʻiate au.’ 10 ‌ʻOku ou tala atu kiate kimoutolu, ʻOku pehē ʻae fiefia ʻi he ʻao ʻoe kau ʻāngelo ʻae ʻOtua ʻi he fakatomala ʻae angahala ʻe tokotaha.”
11 ¶ Pea pehē ʻe ia, “Naʻe ai ʻae tangata naʻe toko ua hono foha. 12 Pea pehē ʻe he kimui ki heʻene tamai, ‘Tamai, tuku mai haku tufakanga ʻi he koloa ʻoku ʻaʻaku.’ Pea ne vaeua kiate kinaua ʻa ʻene meʻa. 13 Pea hili ʻae ngaahi ʻaho siʻi, naʻe tānaki ʻe he foha ki mui ʻa ʻene meʻa kotoa pē, ʻo fononga ki he fonua mamaʻo, ʻo maumauʻi ai ʻene koloa ʻi heʻene moʻui angakovi. 14 Pea kuo fakaʻosi ʻe ia kotoa pē, naʻe tō ʻae honge lahi ki he fonua ko ia; pea hoko ia ʻo fiekaia. 15 Pea ʻalu ia ʻo nofo ki he tangata ʻe tokotaha ʻoe fonua ko ia; pea ne fekau ia ki hono potu fonua ke tauhi ʻae fanga puaka. 16 Pea naʻe feinga ia ke fakamākona ʻaki ia ʻae ngeʻesi naʻe kai ʻe he fanga puaka: he naʻe ʻikai ha taha ʻe foaki kiate ia. 17 “Pea kuo poto ia, pea ne pehē, ‘ʻOku toko fiha ʻae kau tamaioʻeiki totongi ʻa ʻeku tamai kuo lahi mo toe ʻenau mā, ka ʻoku ou mate ʻi he fiekaia! 18 Te u tuʻu hake ʻo ʻalu ki heʻeku tamai, pea te u pehē kiate ia, “Tamai, kuo u fai angahala ki he langi, pea ʻi ho ʻao; 19 Pea ʻoku ʻikai te u kei ʻaonga ke ui ko ho foha; ka ke tuku au ke u tatau mo ha taha ʻi hoʻo kau tamaioʻeiki totongi.” ’ 20 “Pea naʻe tuʻu hake ia, ʻo ʻalu ki heʻene tamai. Ka ʻi heʻene kei mamaʻo ʻaupito, naʻe mamata ʻa ʻene tamai kiate ia, pea manavaʻofa, mo lele, pea fāʻufua ia, ʻo ʻuma kiate ia. 21 Pea pehē ʻe he foha kiate ia, ‘Tamai, kuo u angahala ki he langi, pea ʻi ho ʻao, pea ʻoku ʻikai te u kei ʻaonga ke ui ko ho foha.’ 22 “Ka naʻe pehē ʻe he tamai ki heʻene kau tamaioʻeiki, ‘ʻOmi ʻae pulupulu fungani lelei, ʻo ʻai kiate ia; pea ʻai mo e mama ki hono nima, mo e topuvaʻe ki hono vaʻe: 23 Pea ʻomi ki heni ʻae ʻuhiki pulu sino, ʻo tāmateʻi ia; pea ke tau kai, mo fiefia: 24 He ko hoku foha eni naʻe mate, pea kuo toe moʻui; naʻe mole ia, pea kuo ʻiloʻi.’ Pea naʻa nau kamata fiefia. 25 “Pea naʻe ʻi he ngoue ʻa hono ʻuluaki foha; pea ʻi heʻene haʻu ʻo ofi ki he fale, naʻe fanongo ia ki he meʻa faiva mo e meʻe. 26 Pea naʻa ne ui ki ha taha ʻoe kau tamaioʻeiki, ʻone fehuʻi ki hono ʻuhinga ʻoe ngaahi meʻa ni. 27 Pea ne tala kiate ia, ‘Kuo haʻu ho tehina; pea kuo tāmateʻi ʻe hoʻo tamai ʻae ʻuhiki pulu sino,’ koeʻuhi kuo ne maʻu ia ʻoku moʻui lelei pe. 28 Ka naʻe ʻita ia, pea ʻikai ʻalu ki ai: ko ia naʻe haʻu ai kituʻa ʻa ʻene tamai, ʻo fakakolekole kiate ia. 29 Pea lea ia, ʻo pehēange ki heʻene tamai, ‘Vakai, ko e ngaahi taʻu lahi ni mo ʻeku tauhiʻi koe, pea naʻe ʻikai teu talangataʻa ki hoʻo fekau ʻi ha meʻa ʻe taha: ka naʻe ʻikai siʻi te ke foaki kiate au ha ʻuhikiʻi kosi, koeʻuhi ke u fakafiefia ai mo hoku kāinga. 30 Ka kuo haʻu leva ho foha ko eni, ʻaia naʻe maumauʻi hoʻo koloa mo e kau faʻa feʻauaki, pea ke tāmateʻi maʻana ʻae ʻuhiki pulu sino.’ 31 “Pea ne pehē kiate ia, ‘Foha, ʻoku ta nofomaʻu mo au, pea ko ia kotoa pē ʻoku ʻaʻaku ʻoku ʻaʻau ia. 32 Naʻe taau ʻemau fakafiefia mo nekeneka: he ko ho tehina eni naʻe mate, ka kuo toe moʻui ia; pea naʻe mole, ka kuo ʻilo ia.’ ”
