1 ʻOku fakahā ʻe Solomone ʻae ako naʻe fai ʻe heʻene mātuʻa kiate ia, 5 Ke tokanga ki he poto, 14 Pea ke fehiʻa ki he hala ʻoe kakai fai kovi. 20 ʻOku ne enginaki ki he tui, 23 Pea mo e māʻoniʻoni.
‌ʻAe fānau, mou fanongo ki he akonaki ʻae tamai,
pea tokanga ke ʻilo ʻae poto.
He ʻoku ou foaki ʻae akonaki lelei kiate kimoutolu,
pea ʻoua naʻa mou liʻaki ʻa ʻeku fono.
He ko e foha au ʻo ʻeku tamai,
ko e pele mo e ʻofeina taha pe au ʻi he ʻao ʻo ʻeku faʻē.
Naʻa ne akonakiʻi foki au, ʻo ne pehē mai,
“Tuku ke maʻu ʻi ho loto ʻa ʻeku ngaahi lea:
tauhi ʻa ʻeku ngaahi fekau, ka ke moʻui.”
Ke ke maʻu ʻae poto,
pea maʻu mo e ʻilo:
ʻoua naʻa ngalo ia; pea ʻoua naʻa ke fakaholomui mei he ngaahi lea ʻa hoku ngutu.
‌ʻOua naʻa liʻaki ia, pea te ne fakamoʻui koe:
ke ke ʻofa kiate ia, pea te ne tauhi kiate koe.
Ko e poto ko e meʻa ʻoku fungani hake ia;
ko ia ke ke maʻu ʻae poto:
pea ʻi he meʻa kotoa pē ʻoku ke maʻu, ke ke maʻu mo e ʻilo.
Fakahikihikiʻi ia, pea te ne hakeakiʻi koe:
pea ʻi hoʻo fāʻufua kiate ia, te ne fakaongoongolelei koe.
‌ʻE ai ʻe ia ʻae teunga matamatalelei ki ho ʻulu:
ko e tatā ʻoe nāunau te ne foaki kiate koe.”
 
10 ‌ʻE hoku foha, fanongo, pea ke maʻu ʻa ʻeku ngaahi tala,
pea ʻe hoko ai ʻo lahi ʻae ngaahi taʻu ʻo hoʻo moʻui.
11 Kuo u akonakiʻi koe ʻi he hala ʻoe poto;
pea kuo u tataki koe ʻi he ngaahi ʻaluʻanga totonu.
12 ‌ʻOka ke ka ʻeveʻeva ʻe ʻikai ʻefihia ho vaʻe;
pea ʻoka ke ka lele ʻe ʻikai te ke hinga.
13 Puke ke maʻu ʻae akonaki;
ʻoua naʻa tukuange ia:
kuku maʻu ia; he ko hoʻo moʻui ia.
14 ‌ʻOua naʻa ke ʻalu atu ki he hala ʻoe angahala,
pea ʻoua naʻa ʻeveʻeva ʻi he ʻaluʻanga ʻoe kakai angakovi.
15 Fakaʻehiʻehi mei ai, ʻoua naʻa ke ofi ki ai,
tafoki mei ai, pea ʻalu atu pe.
16 He ʻoku ʻikai te nau mohe, ka ʻi heʻenau lavaʻi ʻae kovi;
pea ʻi he ʻikai te nau fakahinga ha niʻihi ʻoku ʻikai ai te nau faʻa mohe.
17 He ʻoku nau kai ʻae mā ʻoe fai kovi,
ʻonau inu ʻi he uaine ʻoe fakamālohi.
18 Ka ko e hala ʻoe angatonu ʻoku tatau ia mo e ulo ʻoe maama,
ʻaia ʻoku ʻāsili pe ʻene ulo ʻo aʻu ki he haohaoa ʻoe ʻaho.
19 ‌ʻOku tatau mo e poʻuli ʻae hala ʻoe angahala:
ʻoku ʻikai te nau ʻilo ʻaia ʻoku nau tūkia ai.
 
20 ‌ʻE hoku foha, tokanga ki heʻeku ngaahi lea;
fakatokangaʻi ho telinga ki heʻeku ngaahi tala.
21 Ke ʻoua naʻa mole atu ia mei ho mata;
ke maʻu ia ʻi he kakano ʻo ho loto.
22 He ko e moʻui ia kiate kinautolu ʻoku maʻu ia,
pea ko e faitoʻo ki honau kakano.
23 Ke ke tauhi fakamātoato ki ho loto;
he ʻoku tupu mei ai ʻae ikuʻanga ʻoe moʻui.
24 Ke liʻaki ke mamaʻo ʻiate koe ʻae ngutu ʻoku kovi,
mo e loungutu paongataʻa.
25 Ke sio totonu atu pe ho mata,
pea ke hangatonu ki muʻa ho laumata ʻiate koe.
26 Fakakaukau ki he ʻalunga ʻo ho vaʻe,
pea ʻe fakatonutonu ai ho ngaahi hala kotoa pē.
27 ‌ʻOua naʻa afe ki he nima toʻomataʻu pe ki he toʻohema:
ka ke fakatafoki ho vaʻe mei he kovi.
