1 ʻOku tangi ʻae ngaahi ʻofefine ʻo Silofitati ke maʻu tofiʻa. 6 Ko e fono ki he ngaahi tofiʻa. 12 ʻOku fakahā kia Mōsese ʻa ʻene pekia, pea ʻoku ne kole ke fakanofo hono hoko. 18 ʻOku tuʻutuʻuni ʻa Siosiua ke hoko mo ia.
Pea naʻe toki haʻu ʻae ngaahi ʻofefine ʻo Silofitati, ko e foha ʻo Hefeli ko e foha ia ʻo Kiliati, ko e foha ia ʻo Mekili ko e foha ia ʻo Manase, ʻi he ngaahi faʻahinga ʻo Manase ko e foha ʻo Siosefa: pea ko e ngaahi hingoa eni ʻo hono ngaahi ʻofefine; ko Mala, mo Noa, mo Hokila, mo Milika, mo Tilisa. Pea naʻa nau tuʻu ʻi he ʻao ʻo Mōsese, mo e ʻao ʻo ʻEliesa ko e taulaʻeiki, pea mo e ʻao ʻoe houʻeiki mo e kakai kotoa pē ʻi he matapā ʻoe fale fehikitaki ʻoe kakai, ʻonau pehē, “Naʻe mate ʻemau tamai ʻi he toafa, pea naʻe ʻikai kau ia ki he kakai naʻe fakataha ʻakinautolu ke angatuʻu kia Sihova ʻi he kakai ʻo Kola; ka naʻe mate ia ʻi heʻene angahala ʻaʻana, pea naʻe ʻikai hano ngaahi foha. Pea ko e hā ʻe mole ai ʻae hingoa ʻo ʻemau tamai mei hono faʻahinga, koeʻuhi ʻoku ʻikai hano foha? Foaki mai kiate kimautolu ha tofiʻa ʻi he kāinga ʻo ʻemau tamai. Pea naʻe ʻomi ʻe Mōsese ʻenau meʻa ki he ʻao ʻo Sihova.
¶ Pea naʻe folofola ʻa Sihova kia Mōsese, ʻo pehē, ‌ʻOku lea totonu ʻae ngaahi ʻofefine ʻo Silofitati: ko e moʻoni te ke foaki kenau maʻu ha tofiʻa ʻi he kāinga ʻo ʻenau tamai; pea ke tuku ke hoko ʻae tofiʻa ʻo ʻenau tamai kiate kinautolu. Pea te ke lea ki he fānau ʻa ʻIsileli, ʻo pehē, Kapau ʻe mate ha tangata, ka ʻoku ʻikai hano foha, te mou tuku ke hoko hono ʻofefine ki hono tofiʻa. Pea kapau ʻoku ʻikai hano ʻofefine, te mou tuku hono tofiʻa ki hono kāinga. 10 Pea kapau ʻoku ʻikai hano kāinga, te mou tuku hono tofiʻa ki he kāinga ʻo ʻene tamai. 11 Pea kapau ʻoku ʻikai ha kāinga ʻo ʻene tamai, te mou toki tuku hono tofiʻa ki hono kāinga ʻoku na vāofi ʻi hono faʻahinga, pea te ne maʻu ia: pea ʻe tuku ia ki he fānau ʻa ʻIsileli ko e fono ʻoe fakamaau, ʻo hangē ko e fekau ʻa Sihova kia Mōsese.”
12 ¶ Pea naʻe pehē ʻe Sihova kia Mōsese, “Ke ke ʻalu hake ki he moʻunga ni ko ʻApalimi, ʻo mamata ki he fonua ʻaia kuo u foaki ki he fānau ʻa ʻIsileli. 13 Pea ʻoka ke ka mamata ki ai, ʻe tānaki foki ko e ki ho kakai, ʻo hangē ko e tānaki ʻa ho taʻokete ko ʻElone. 14 Koeʻuhi naʻa mo angatuʻu ki heʻeku fekau ʻi he toafa ʻo Sini, ʻi he vākē ʻae kakai, ke fakahikihiki au ʻi he vai ʻi honau ʻao:” ʻaia ko e vai ko Melipa ʻi Ketesi ʻi he toafa ʻo Sini.
15 ¶ Pea naʻe lea ʻa Mōsese kia Sihova, ʻo pehē, 16 “Tuku ke fakanofo ʻe Sihova, ko e ʻOtua ʻoe laumālie ʻoe kakai kotoa pē, ha tangata ke pule ki he kakai, 17 ‌ʻAia ʻe muʻomuʻa atu ʻi heʻenau ʻalu atu, pea muʻomuʻa mai ʻi heʻenau haʻu, pea ne tataki atu ʻe ia ʻakinautolu, pea tataki mai ʻe ia ʻakinautolu; koeʻuhi ke ʻoua naʻa hangē ʻae kakai ʻa Sihova ko e fanga sipi ʻoku ʻikai hano tauhi.”
18 ¶ Pea naʻe pehē ʻe Sihova kia Mōsese, “Ke ke ʻomi ʻe ko e ʻa Siosiua ko e foha ʻo Nuni, ko e tangata ʻoku ʻiate ia ʻae laumālie, pea ke hilifaki ho nima kiate ia; 19 Pea tuku ia ʻi he ʻao ʻo ʻEliesa ko e taulaʻeiki, pea mo e ʻao ʻoe kakai kotoa pē; pea ke tuku ʻae fekau kiate ia ʻi honau ʻao. 20 Pea te ke tuku kiate ia mei ho ongoongolelei ʻoʻou, koeʻuhi ke talangofua ʻae fānau kotoa pē ʻa ʻIsileli. 21 Pea ʻe tuʻu ia ʻi he ʻao ʻo ʻEliesa ko e taulaʻeiki, pea te ne kumi ha poto maʻana ʻi he fakaʻilo ʻae ʻUlimi ʻi he ʻao ʻo Sihova: tenau ʻalu atu ʻi heʻene folofola, pea tenau foki mai ʻi heʻene folofola, ko ia, pea mo e kakai ʻo ʻIsileli fakataha mo ia, ʻio ʻae kakai kotoa pē.” 22 Pea naʻe fai ʻe Mōsese ʻo hangē ko e fekau ʻa Sihova kiate ia: ʻo ne ʻave ʻa Siosiua, ʻo tuku ia ʻi he ʻao ʻo ʻEliesa ko e taulaʻeiki, mo e ʻao ʻoe kakai kotoa pē: 23 Pea naʻe ʻai ʻe ia ʻa hono nima kiate ia, mo ne lea kiate ia, ʻo hangē ko ia naʻe fekau ʻe Sihova ʻi he nima ʻo Mōsese.
