1 Ko e tataki ʻe he fetuʻu ʻae kau tangata poto mei he potu fakahahake kia Kalaisi. 11 Ko ʻenau hū kiate ia mo e ʻatu ʻenau ngaahi meʻaʻofa. 14 Ko e holataki ʻe Siosefa ʻa Sisu mo ʻene faʻē ki ʻIsipite. 16 Ko e tāmateʻi ʻe Helota ʻae ngaahi fānau. 20 Ko e mate ʻaʻana. 23 Ko e toe ʻomi ʻa Kalaisi ki Nāsaleti ʻi Kaleli.
Pea kuo ʻaloʻi ʻa Sisu ʻi Petelihema ʻi Siutea, ʻi he ngaahi ʻaho ʻo Helota ko e tuʻi, vakai, naʻe haʻu ʻae kau tangata poto mei he potu hahake ki Selūsalema, ‌ʻO pehē, “ʻOku ʻi fē ia ʻaia kuo ʻaloʻi ko e Tuʻi ʻoe kakai Siu? He kuo mau mamata ʻi he potu hahake ki hono fetuʻu, pea kuo mau haʻu ke hū kiate ia.” Pea kuo fanongo ai ʻa Helota ko e tuʻi, naʻe puputuʻu ia, mo Selūsalema kotoa pē mo ia. Pea kuo fakakātoa ʻe ia ʻae kau taulaʻeiki lahi kotoa pē mo e kau tangata tohi ʻoe kakai, naʻe fakapapau ia meiate kinautolu pe ʻaloʻi ʻi fē ʻae Kalaisi. Pea nau pehēange kiate ia, “ʻI Petelihema ʻi Siutea: he ʻoku pehē hono tohi he palōfita.
‘Ko Koe Petelihema, ʻi he fonua ʻo Siuta,
ʻoku ʻikai ʻaupito ko e siʻi hifo Koe ʻi he ngaahi ʻEiki ʻo Siuta:
koeʻuhi ʻe haʻu meiate Koe ha Pule,
ʻaia te ne puleʻi hoku kakai ko ʻIsileli.”
Pea toki fekau fakafufū ʻe Helota ke haʻu ʻae kau tangata poto, pea fehuʻi fakapapau kiate kinautolu pe naʻe hā mai ʻanefē ʻae fetuʻu. Pea ne fekau ʻakinautolu ki Petelihema, ʻo ne pehē, “Mou ʻalu ʻo kumi lahi ki he tamasiʻi, pea ka mou ka ʻilo ia, mou fakahā mai kiate au, koeʻuhi ke u ʻalu atu ʻo hū foki kiate ia.” Pea kuo nau fanongo ki he tuʻi, pea nau ʻalu; pea vakai, ko e fetuʻu naʻa nau mamata ai ʻi he potu hahake, naʻe ʻalu muʻomuʻa ʻiate kinautolu, ʻo aʻu ki he potu naʻe ʻi ai ʻae tamasiʻi pea tuʻu mei ai ʻi ʻolunga. 10 Pea ʻi heʻenau mamata ki he fetuʻu, naʻa nau fiefia ʻi he fiefia lahi ʻaupito.
11 ¶ Pea ʻi heʻenau hū ki he fale, naʻa nau mamata ki he tamasiʻi naʻe ʻi heʻene faʻē ko Mele, mo nau fakatōmapeʻe ʻo hū kiate ia; pea kuo nau vete ʻenau koloa, naʻa nau ʻoatu kiate ia ʻae ngaahi meʻaʻofa; ko e koula, mo e laipeno, mo e mula. 12 Pea ʻi he valokia ʻakinautolu ʻe he ʻOtua ʻi he misi, ke ʻoua te nau toe ʻalu kia Helota, naʻa nau ʻalu ki honau fonua ʻi ha hala kehe. 13 Pea kuo ʻalu ʻakinautolu, ʻiloange, kuo hā mai ha ʻāngelo ʻae ʻEiki kia Siosefa ʻi he misi, ʻo ne pehē, “Tuʻu hake ʻo ʻave ʻae tamasiʻi mo ʻene faʻē, pea ke holatakiʻi ki ʻIsipite, pea ke nofo ai ke ʻoua ke u fakahā kiate koe: koeʻuhi ʻe kumi ʻe Helota ʻae tamasiʻi ke tāmateʻi ia.” 14 Pea tuʻu hake ia, ʻo ne ʻave ʻae tamasiʻi mo ʻene faʻē ʻi he pō, ʻo ʻalu ki ʻIsipite: 15 Pea naʻe ʻi ai ia ʻo aʻu ki he mate ʻa Helota: ke fakamoʻoni ʻaia naʻe folofolaʻaki ʻe he ʻEiki ʻi he palōfita, ʻo pehē, “Kuo u ui mai hoku foha mei ʻIsipite.”
16 ¶ Pea kuo toki ʻilo ʻe Helota kuo kākaaʻi ia ʻe he kau tangata poto, pea ʻita lahi ʻaupito, mo ne fekau atu ki Petelihema mo e ngaahi potu ofi ki ai, ke tāmateʻi ʻae tamaiki tangata kotoa pē, ngata ʻi he ua taʻu ʻo ʻenau lahi ʻo fai ki mui; ʻo fakatatau ki he ʻaho naʻa ne fehuʻi fakapapau ai ki he kau tangata poto. 17 Pea naʻe toki fakamoʻoni ʻaia naʻe lea ʻaki ʻe he palōfita ko Selemaia, ʻo pehē,
18 “Naʻe ongoʻi ʻi Lama ʻae leʻo,
ko e lāunga, mo e tangi, mo e tangilāulau,
ko e tēngihia ʻe Lesieli ʻene fānau,
pea ʻikai te ne tali ʻae fiemālie,
koeʻuhi kuo ʻikai ʻakinautolu.”
19 ¶ Ka kuo mate ʻa Helota, pea vakai, naʻe hā mai ha ʻāngelo ʻae ʻEiki kia Siosefa ʻi he misi ʻi ʻIsipite, 20 ‌ʻO ne pehē, “Tuʻu hake, pea ʻave ʻae tamasiʻi mo ʻene faʻē, pea ʻalu ki he fonua ʻo ʻIsileli; he kuo mate ʻakinautolu naʻe kumi ki he moʻui ʻae tamasiʻi.” 21 Pea tuʻu hake ia ʻo ʻave ʻae tamasiʻi mo ʻene faʻē, pea haʻu ki he fonua ʻo ʻIsileli. 22 Ka ʻi heʻene fanongo ʻoku pule ʻa ʻAkileosi ʻi Siutea ko e fetongi ʻo ʻene tamai ko Helota, naʻe manavahē ia ke ʻalu ki ai: pea ʻi he valoki ia ʻe he ʻOtua ʻi he misi, naʻa ne afe ki he ngaahi potu ʻo Kaleli: 23 Pea haʻu ia ʻo nofo ʻi he kolo ko Nāsaleti: koeʻuhi ke fakamoʻoni ʻaia naʻe lea ʻaki ʻe he kau palōfita, “ʻE ui ia ko e Nāsaline.”
