3 Ko e kole tāumaʻu ʻae fefine kuo mate hono ʻunoho. 9 Ko e Fālesi mo e tānaki tukuhau. 15 ʻOku ʻomi ʻae tamaiki kia Kalaisi. 18 Ko e matāpule naʻe fie muimui kia Kalaisi, ka naʻe taʻofi ʻe heʻene koloa. 28 Ko e meʻa ʻe maʻu ʻekinautolu ʻoku liaki kotoa pē koeʻuhi ko Sisu. 31 ʻOku ne fakahā ʻene pekia. 35 ʻOku ne fakaʻā ʻae tangata kui.
Pea naʻa ne fakahā kiate kinautolu ʻi he fakatātā, ʻoku lelei ke lotu maʻuaipē ʻae kakai, pea ʻoua naʻa fiu; ‌ʻO ne pehē, “Naʻe ʻi he kolo ʻe taha ʻae fakamaau, naʻe ʻikai manavahē ki he ʻOtua, pe tokanga ki he tangata. Pea naʻe ʻi he kolo ko ia ʻae fefine kuo mate hono ʻunoho; pea haʻu ia ki ai, ʻo ne pehē, ‘Fakamaau au mo totongi totonu ki hoku fili.’ Pea naʻe ʻikai tokanga leva ia ki ai: kae toki fakakaukau ia, ʻo pehē, ‘ʻOku ʻikai pe te u manavahē ki he ʻOtua, pe tokanga ki he tangata; Ka koeʻuhi ʻi he fakafiuʻi au ʻe he fefine ni kuo mate hono ʻunoho, te u fakamaauʻi ia, telia ʻi heʻene faʻa haʻu te ne fakakinaʻi au.’ ” Pea pehē ʻe he ʻEiki, “Fanongo ki he lea ʻae fakamaau taʻeangatonu. Pea ʻe ʻikai fakamaau ʻe he ʻOtua ʻa hono kakai ʻoʻona kuo fili, ʻaia ʻoku tangi kiate ia ʻi he ʻaho mo e pō, ʻo kapau ʻe fakatuotuai ia kiate kinautolu? ‌ʻOku ou tala atu kiate kimoutolu, ʻE fakamaau vave ʻe ia ʻakinautolu. Ka ʻi he haʻu ʻae Foha ʻoe tangata, te ne ʻilo ʻae tui ʻi he fonua?” Pea naʻa ne lea ʻaki ʻae fakatātā ni ki he niʻihi naʻa nau falala kiate kinautolu kuo nau māʻoniʻoni, mo nau manukiʻi ʻae kakai kehe: 10 “Naʻe ʻalu hake ʻae ongo tangata ki he falelotu lahi ke lotu; ko e tokotaha ko e Fālesi, pea ko e tānaki tukuhau ʻae tokotaha. 11 Naʻe tuʻu atu pe ʻae Fālesi, pea lotu, ʻo pehē, ‘ʻE ʻOtua, ʻoku ou fakafetaʻi kiate koe, ʻoku ʻikai te u hangē ko e kau tangata kehe, ke fakamālohi, mo taʻeangatonu, mo tono fefine, pe hangē ko e tānaki tukuhau ni. 12 ‌ʻOku liunga ua ʻeku ʻaukai ʻi he uike, pea ʻoku ou ʻatu ʻae tukuhau ʻi heʻeku meʻa fulipē.’ 13 Ka naʻe tuʻu mamaʻo atu ʻae tānaki tukuhau, pea ʻikai faʻa hanga hake hono mata ki he langi, ka naʻe si fatafata ia, mo pehē, ‘ʻE ʻOtua, ke ke ʻaloʻofa mai kiate au ko e angahala.’ 14 ‌ʻOku ou tala kiate kimoutolu, naʻe ʻalu hifo ʻae tangata ni ki hono fale kuo fakatonuhia ia, ka ʻikai pehē ʻae tokotaha: he ko ia kotoa pē ʻoku ne hiki hake ia, ʻe fakavaivaiʻi ia; pea ko ia ʻoku ne fakavaivaiʻi ia, ʻe hiki hake ia.” 15 Pea naʻa nau ʻomi foki kiate ia ʻae tamaiki iiki, koeʻuhi ke ne ala kiate kinautolu: ka ʻi he mamata ki ai ʻae kau ākonga, naʻa nau lolomi ʻakinautolu. 16 Ka naʻe ui ʻe Sisu ke nau haʻu, ʻo ne pehē, “Tuku pe ʻae tamaiki iiki ke haʻu kiate au, pea ʻoua naʻa taʻofi ʻakinautolu: he ʻoku ʻoe kakai pehē ʻae puleʻanga ʻoe ʻOtua. 17 Ko e moʻoni ʻoku ou tala kiate kimoutolu, Ko ia ia ʻe ʻikai te ne maʻu ʻae puleʻanga ʻoe ʻOtua ʻo hangē ko e tamasiʻi siʻi ʻe ʻikai ʻaupito hū ia ki ai.” 18 Pea toki fehuʻi ʻae matāpule ʻe taha kiate ia, ʻo pehē, “ʻEiki lelei, ko e hā te u fai ke u hoko ai ki he moʻui taʻehili?” 19 Pea pehē ʻe Sisu kiate ia, “Ko e hā kuo ke ui ai au ko e lelei? Ko e tokotaha pe ʻoku lelei, ʻaia ko e ʻOtua. 20 ‌ʻOku ke ʻilo ʻae ngaahi fekau, ‘ʻOua naʻa ke tono fefine,’ ‘ʻOua naʻa ke fakapō,’ ‘ʻOua naʻa ke kaihaʻa,’ ‘ʻOua naʻa ke fakamoʻoni loi,’ ‘Fakaʻapaʻapa ki hoʻo tamai mo hoʻo faʻē.’ ” 21 Pea pehē ʻe ia, “Kuo u fai eni kotoa pē talu ʻeku siʻi.” 22 Pea kuo fanongo ʻa Sisu ki he ngaahi lea ni, pea ne pehē kiate ia, “Ko e meʻa ʻe taha ʻoku ke kei hala ai: fakatau ʻaia kotoa pē ʻoku ʻaʻau, ʻo tufaki ki he masiva, pea te ke maʻu ʻae ʻene koloa ʻi he langi: pea ke haʻu, ʻo muimui ʻiate au.” 23 Pea kuo fanongo ia ki ai, naʻa ne mamahi ʻaupito: he naʻe lahi ʻene koloa. 24 Pea kuo mamata ʻa Sisu kuo mamahi ʻaupito ia, pea ne pehē, “ʻE faingataʻa ʻaupito kiate kinautolu ʻoku koloaʻia ke hū ki he He ʻoku faingofua hake ʻae hū ʻae kāmeli ʻi he avaʻi hui, ʻi he hū ʻae tangata koloaʻia ki he puleʻanga ʻoe ʻOtua.” 25 He ʻoku faingofua hake ʻae hū ʻae kāmeli ʻi he avaʻi hui, ʻi he hū ʻae tangata koloaʻia ki he puleʻanga ʻae ʻOtua! 26 Pea ko kinautolu naʻe fanongo naʻa nau fepehēʻaki, “Pea ko hai ʻe moʻui?” 27 Pea pehē ʻe ia, “Ko e ngaahi meʻa ʻoku ʻikai mafai ʻe he tangata, ʻoku mafai ia ʻe he ʻOtua.” 28 Pea toki pehē ʻe Pita, “Vakai, kuo mau liaki ʻae meʻa kotoa pē, ʻo muimui ʻiate koe.” 29 Pea ne pehe kiate kinautolu, “Ko e moʻoni ʻoku ou tala atu kiate kimoutolu, “ʻOku ʻikai ha tangata kuo liʻaki ʻe ia ai fale, pea ʻae mātuʻa, pe ko e ngaahi kāinga, pe ko e ʻunoho, pe ʻae fānau, koeʻuhi ko e puleʻanga ʻoe ʻOtua, 30 Ka te ne maʻu ʻo lahi ʻaupito hake ʻi he moʻui ni, pea ʻi he maama ʻe haʻu ʻae moʻui taʻengata.”
31 ¶ Pea ne omi ʻae toko hongofulu ma toko ua, ʻo ne pehē kiate kinautolu, “Vakai, ʻoku tau ʻalu hake ki Selūsalema, pea ʻe fakamoʻoni ki he Foha ʻoe tangata ʻaia kotoa pē kuo tohi ʻe he kau palōfita. 32 He koeʻuhi ʻe tukuange ia ki he Senitaile, pea ʻe manukiʻi ia, mo fai meʻa kovi kiate ia, mo ʻaʻanu ki ai: 33 Pea te nau kauʻimaea mo tāmateʻi ia: pea ʻi hono ʻaho tolu ʻe toetuʻu ia.” 34 Ka naʻe ʻikai te nau ʻilo ʻae ngaahi meʻa ni; pea naʻe puli ʻiate kinautolu ʻae lea ni, ʻo ʻikai te nau ʻilo ʻae ngaahi meʻa kuo lea ʻaki.
