1 Naʻe fai ʻe Sanipalate ʻae fakakākā, mo e fakaongo loi, mo e kikite loi, ke fakamanavasiʻi ʻa Nehemaia. 15 Kuo fakaʻosi ʻae ngāue pea lilika ai ʻae ngaahi fili. 17 Ko e felohiʻaki fufū ʻae ngaahi fili mo e houʻeiki ʻo Siuta.
Pea ʻi he fanongo ʻe Sanipalate, mo Topaia, mo Kesemi ko e ʻAlepea, mo hono toe ʻo homau fili, kuo u langaʻi ʻae ʻā maka; pea naʻe ʻikai ha ava ʻoku toe; (ka ʻi he kuonga ko ia naʻe teʻeki ai te u fokotuʻu hake ʻae ngaahi matapā laupapa ki he ngaahi hūʻanga): naʻe hoko ai ʻo pehē: Naʻe fekau ʻe Sanipalate mo Kesemi kiate au, ʻo pehē, “Haʻu, ketau fakataha ʻi he potu kakai ʻe taha ʻi he toafa ʻo Ono.” Ka naʻa nau fifili ke fai ha kovi kiate au. Pea ne u fekau ʻae kau talafekau kiate kinautolu, ʻo pehē, “ʻOku ou fai ʻae ngāue ʻoku lahi, ko ia ʻoku ʻikai teu faʻa ʻalu hifo: koeʻumaʻā ʻa ʻeku tuku ʻae ngāue, ʻi he liʻaki ia, pea ʻalu hifo ai kiate kimoutolu?” Ka naʻa nau fekau pehē kiate au, ʻo liunga fā; pea ne u talia ʻakinautolu ʻi he anga pe taha: Pea naʻe toki fekau pehē ai pe ʻe Sanipalate ʻa ʻene tamaioʻeiki kiate au ko hono liunga nima mo e tohi mafola pe ʻi hono nima; ‌ʻAia naʻe tuʻu ai ʻae lea ni, “Kuo fakaongo ki he hiteni, pea kuo tala ia ʻe Kasimu, ʻo pehē ko koe mo e kakai Siu ʻoku mou tokanga ke angatuʻu: ko ia ʻoku ke langa ai ʻae ʻā maka, koeʻuhi ke ke hoko ai ko honau tuʻi, ʻo fakatatau ki he ngaahi lea ni. Pea kuo ke fakanofo ʻae kau palōfita, ke nau malangaʻaki koe ʻi Selūsalema, ʻo pehē, ‘ʻOku ai ʻae tuʻi ʻi Siuta: pea ko eni ʻe fakaongo atu ia ki he tuʻi ʻo fakatatau ki he ngaahi lea ni. Ko ia ke ke haʻu, pea ke tau alea ʻo fakakaukau fakataha.’ ” Pea ne u fekau kiate ia, ʻo pehē, “ʻOku ʻikai fai ha meʻa hangē ko ia ʻoku ke lau ki ai, ka ʻoku ke fakatupu ia ʻi ho loto ʻoʻou.” He naʻa nau fai kotoa pē ke fakamanavahēʻi ʻakimautolu, ʻo pehē, “ʻE vaivai ai honau nima mei he ngāue, ke ʻoua naʻa fai ia.” Pea ko eni, ʻE ʻOtua, ke ke fakamālohi hoku nima. 10 Hili ia naʻaku ʻalu ki he fale ʻo Simaia ko e foha ʻo Telaia ko e foha ʻe Mihetapeli, ʻaia naʻe nofo fale pe: pea naʻe pehē ʻe ia, “Keta fakataha ʻi he fale ʻoe ʻOtua, ʻi he loto faletapu, pea ke tā tāpuni ʻae ngaahi matapā ʻoe faletapu: he tenau haʻu ke tāmateʻi koe, ʻio, tenau haʻu ʻi he poʻuli ke tāmateʻi koe.” 11 Pea ne u pehē, “He ʻoku lelei ke hola ʻae tangata hangē ko au? Pea ko hai ia, ʻaia kuo hoko ʻo hangē ko au, pea ʻe ʻalu ia ki he faletapu ke hao ai ʻene moʻui? ʻE ʻikai te u ʻalu.” 12 Pea ʻiloange, naʻaku vakai, naʻe ʻikai fekau ia ʻe he ʻOtua: ka naʻa ne fakahā ʻae kikite ni kiate au; koeʻuhi naʻe totongi ia ʻe Topaia mo Sanipalate. 13 Ko e meʻa ia naʻe totongi ai ia, koeʻuhi ke u hoko ʻo manavahē, pea fai pehē, ʻo fai angahala, pea kenau maʻu ai ʻae meʻa ke fakaongo kovi ʻaki, pea koeʻuhi kenau fakakovi ai au. 14 “ʻE hoku ʻOtua, ke ke manatuʻi ʻe koe ʻa Topaia mo Sanipalate ʻo fakatatau ki heʻena ngāue ko eni, pea ki he fefine palōfita ko Noatia, pea mo hono toe ʻoe kau palōfita, ʻaia naʻa nau loto ke fakamanavahēʻi au.”
15 ¶ Pea pehē, naʻe fakaʻosi ʻae ʻā maka ʻi hono uofulu ma nima ʻoe ʻaho ʻoe māhina ko Iluli, ʻi he ʻaho ʻe nimangofulu ma ua 16 Pea naʻe hoko ʻo pehē, ʻi he fanongo ki ai ʻe homau fili kotoa pē, pea mamata ʻe he hiteni kotoa pē naʻe nofo ʻo takatakai ʻiate kimautolu ki he ngaahi meʻa ni, naʻa nau loto vaivai lahi ʻi honau mata: he naʻa nau mamata kuo fai ʻae ngāue ni ʻi homau ʻOtua.
17 ¶ Pea ko eni foki, ʻi he ngaahi ʻaho ko ia naʻe ʻave ʻe he houʻeiki ʻo Siuta ʻae ngaahi tohi kia Topaia, pea naʻe ʻomi ʻae ngaahi tohi ʻa Topaia kiate kinautolu. 18 He naʻe ai ʻae tokolahi ʻi Siuta naʻe fuakava kiate ia, he ko e foha ia ʻi he fono kia Sikania ko e foha ʻo ʻAla; pea kuo toʻo ʻe hono foha ko Sohanani ʻae ʻofefine ʻo Mesulami ko e foha ʻo Pelekia. 19 Pea naʻa nau fakaongo mai kiate au ʻene ngaahi ngāue lelei foki, pea naʻe fakaongo ʻeku ngaahi lea kiate ia. Pea naʻe ʻomi ʻe Topaia ʻae ngaahi tohi ke fakamanavahēʻi ai au.
