1 ʻOku fakamoʻui ʻe Kalaisi ʻae tokotaha naʻe mahaki tete, 14 ʻOku ne ui ʻa Mātiu mei he tukuhauʻanga, 15 ʻOku kai fakataha mo e kau tānaki tukuhau mo e angahala, 18 ʻOku ne fakahā hono ʻuhinga ʻoe taʻeʻaukai ʻa ʻene kau ākonga, 23 Pea mo ʻenau toli ʻae fua ʻoe uite ʻi he ʻaho Sāpate.
Pea hili ʻae ngaahi ʻaho pea toe ʻalu ia ki Kapaneume; pea kuo ongo atu ʻoku ʻi he fale ia. Pea fakataha leva ʻae fuʻu tokolahi, naʻe ʻikai ke faʻa hao ʻi he fale, pe ofi ki he matapā: pea malangaʻaki ʻe ia ʻae folofola kiate kinautolu. Pea naʻe ʻomi mo kinautolu kiate ia ʻae tokotaha naʻe mahaki tete, ʻaia naʻe fata ʻe he toko fā. Pea ʻi he ʻikai te nau faʻa hao ʻo ofi kiate ia koeʻuhi ko e kakai, naʻa nau tatala ʻae ʻato ʻoe fale naʻe ʻi ai ia: pea kuo haeʻi ia, naʻa nau tukutuku hifo ʻae mohenga naʻe tokoto ai ʻae mahaki tete. Pea kuo mamata ʻa Sisu ki heʻenau tui, pea pehē ʻe ia ki he mahaki tete, “Foha, kuo fakamolemole hoʻo ngaahi angahala.” Ka naʻe nofo ai ʻae niʻihi ʻoe kau tangata tohi, ʻonau fifili ʻi honau loto, ʻo pehē, “Ko e hā ʻoku lea fie ʻOtua pehē ai ʻae tangata ni? Ko hai ʻe faʻa fakamolemole ʻae angahala ka ko e ʻOtua pe?” Pea kuo ʻiloʻi leva ʻe Sisu ʻi hono loto ʻoku pehē ʻenau fifili ʻi honau loto, pea pehē ʻe ia kiate kinautolu, “Ko e hā ʻoku mou fifili ai ʻi homou loto ki he ngaahi meʻa ni? He ʻoku faingofua ʻa fē, ʻae lea ʻaki ki he mahaki tete, ‘Kuo fakamolemole hoʻo ngaahi angahala;’ pe ko e lea, ‘Tuʻu hake, ʻo toʻo ho mohenga, mo ke ʻalu?’ 10 Ka koeʻuhi ke mou ʻilo ʻoku ʻi he Foha ʻoe tangata ʻae mālohi ʻi māmani ke fakamolemole ʻae angahala,” (pea pehē ʻe ia ki he mahaki tete), 11 “ʻOku ou pehē atu kiate koe, Tuʻu hake, ʻo toʻo ho mohenga, mo ke ʻalu ki ho fale.” 12 Pea tuʻu hake leva ia, ʻo toʻo ʻae mohenga, pea ne ʻalu kituʻa ʻi he ʻao ʻokinautolu kotoa pē; ko ia ne nau ofo ai kotoa pē, mo fakamālō ki he ʻOtua, ʻonau pehē, “Kuo teʻeki te tau mamata ʻi ha meʻa pehē.” 13 Pea toe ʻalu atu ia ki he matātahi; pea kātoa kiate ia ʻae kakai kotoa pē, pea ne akonakiʻi ʻakinautolu. 14 Pea ʻi heʻene ʻalu atu, naʻa ne mamata kia Livai ko e foha ʻo ʻAlefiusi, ʻoku nofo ia ʻi he tukuhauʻanga, pea ne pehē kiate ia, “Muimui kiate au.” Pea tuʻu ia ʻo muimui ʻiate ia. 15 Pea ʻi he nofo ʻa Sisu ʻi hono fale, ʻo kai, naʻe tokolahi ʻae tānaki tukuhau mo e angahala, naʻa nau nonofo mo Sisu mo ʻene kau ākonga: he naʻe tokolahi ʻakinautolu naʻe muimui ʻiate ia. 16 Pea ʻi he mamata ʻe he kau tangata tohi mo e Fālesi ʻoku ne kai mo e kau tānaki tukuhau mo e angahala, naʻa nau pehē ki heʻene kau ākonga, “Ko e hā ʻoku kai mo inu fakataha ai ia mo e kau tānaki tukuhau mo e angahala?” 17 Pea kuo fanongo ʻa Sisu ki ai, pea pehē ʻe ia kiate kinautolu, “ʻOku ʻikai ʻaonga ʻae faitoʻo kiate kinautolu ʻoku mālōlō, ka ki he mahaki: naʻe ʻikai teu haʻu ke ui ʻae māʻoniʻoni, ka ko e angahala ke fakatomala.” 18 Pea naʻe faʻa ʻaukai ʻae kau ākonga ʻa Sione mo e ākonga ʻae kau Fālesi: pea nau haʻu ʻo pehē kiate ia, “Ko e hā ʻoku faʻa ʻaukai ai ʻae kau ākonga ʻa Sione pea mo e Fālesi, ka ʻoku ʻikai ʻaukai hoʻo kau ākonga?” 19 Pea pehē ʻe Sisu kiate kinautolu, “E faʻa ʻaukai ʻae kāinga ʻoe tangata taʻane, ʻi he kei ʻiate kinautolu ʻae tangata taʻane? E ʻikai te nau faʻa ʻaukai ʻi he lolotonga ʻoku ʻiate kinautolu ʻae tangata taʻane. 20 Kae hoko ʻae ngaahi ʻaho ʻe ʻave ai ʻiate kinautolu ʻae tangata taʻane, pea ko e ngaahi ʻaho ko ia te nau toki ʻaukai ai. 21 “ʻOku ʻikai foki ha taha te ne ʻai ha konga meʻa foʻou ki he kofu motuʻa: he ko e konga foʻou ʻoku ʻai ke ʻoposi ʻaki, ʻe mafaufau ai ia pea ʻe ʻāsili ai hono mahaehae. 22 Pea ʻoku ʻikai utu ʻeha taha ʻae uaine foʻou ki he ngaahi hina ʻoku motuʻa; ka pehē ʻe haeʻi ʻe he uaine foʻou ʻae ngaahi hina, pea malingi ʻae uaine, pea maumau ʻae hina; ka ʻoku ʻutu ʻae uaine foʻou ki he ngaahi hina foʻou.” 23 Pea naʻe ʻalu ia ʻi he ngaahi ngoue uite ʻi he ʻaho Sāpate; pea ʻi heʻenau ʻalu, naʻe kamata toli ʻe heʻene kau ākonga ʻae fua ʻoe uite. 24 Pea pehē ʻe he kau Fālesi kiate ia, “Vakai, ko e hā ʻoku nau fai ai ʻi he ʻaho Sāpate ʻaia ʻoku ʻikai ngofua?” 25 Pea pehē ʻe ia kiate kinautolu, “Naʻe ʻikai te mou lau ʻaia naʻe fai ʻe Tevita, ʻi heʻene tuʻutāmaki, mo fiekaia, ʻaia mo kinautolu naʻe ʻiate ia? 26 ‌ʻA ʻene hū ki he fale ʻoe ʻOtua ʻi he ngaahi ʻaho ʻo ʻApiata ko e taulaʻeiki lahi, ʻo ne kai ʻae mā ʻoe ʻao, ʻaia naʻe ʻikai ngofua ke kai ka ko e kau taulaʻeiki pe, pea ne ʻange foki kiate kinautolu naʻe ʻiate ia? 27 Pea pehē ʻe ia kiate kinautolu, Naʻe ngaohi ʻae Sāpate koeʻuhi ko e tangata, ka naʻe ʻikai ngaohi ʻae tangata koeʻuhi ko e Sāpate: 28 ko ia ko e Foha ʻoe tangata ko e ʻEiki ia ʻoe Sāpate foki.”
