1–30 Pea hokohoko atu ki he ngaahi vahe hoko...
Ko e meʻa manuki ʻae kava, pea ko e meʻa fakatupu lili ʻae kava mālohi:
pea ko ia kuo kākaaʻi ʻaki ia ʻoku taʻepoto.
Ko e tuputāmaki ʻoe tuʻi ʻoku hangē ko e ngungulu ʻae laione;
pea ko ia ʻoku ne fakatupu ʻene houhau ʻoku fai angahala ia ki hono laumālie ʻoʻona.
Ko e meʻa ongoongolelei ʻi ha tangata ke ne tuku ʻae kē:
ka ʻoku fie kau ai ʻae vale kotoa pē.
‌ʻOku ʻikai ke keli ʻae fakapikopiko koeʻuhi ko e momoko;
ko ia te ne faʻa kole ai ʻi he ututaʻu, ka ʻe ʻikai maʻu ha meʻa.
‌ʻOku hangē ko e vai loloto ʻae poto ʻi he loto ʻoe tangata;
ka ʻe fusi hake ia ʻe he tangata faʻa fakakaukau.
‌ʻOku tokolahi ʻae kakai ʻoku taki taha viki ʻi heʻene lelei ʻaʻana:
ka ko hai ʻoku ne faʻa ʻilo ki ha tangata angatonu.
‌ʻOku ʻeveʻeva ʻae tangata angatonu ʻi heʻene māʻoniʻoni:
ʻoku monūʻia ʻa ʻene fānau kimui ʻiate ia.
Ko e tuʻi ʻoku nofo ʻi he nofoʻa ʻoe fakamaau,
ʻoku ne fakahēʻi ʻae kovi ʻaki hono fofonga.
Ko hai ʻoku ne faʻa lea ʻo pehē, “Kuo u fakamaʻa hoku loto,
ʻoku ou maʻa au mei heʻeku angahala?”
10 Ko e faikehekehe ʻi he fakamamafa meʻa, mo e faikehekehe ʻi he fuofua meʻa,
ʻoku fakatou fakalielia tatau kia Sihova.
11 Naʻa mo e tamasiʻi, ʻoku ʻilo ia ʻi heʻene faianga;
pe ʻoku maʻa ʻene ngāue, pe ʻoku totonu ia.
12 Kuo fakatou ngaohi ʻe Sihova ʻae telinga ke fanongo mo e mata ke sio ʻaki.
13 ‌ʻOua naʻa ke manako ki he mohe, telia naʻa ke hoko ʻo masiva ai:
ke ʻā pe ho mata, pea ʻe fakamākona koe ʻaki ʻae mā.
14 ‌ʻOku pehē ʻe ia ʻoku fakatau, “Ko e meʻa noa pe ʻena, ko e meʻa noa pe ʻena,”
ka ʻoka ʻalu ia ʻi hono hala, ʻoku ne toki polepole.
15 ‌ʻOku ai ʻae koula, pea taʻefaʻalaua ʻae ngaahi maka koloa;
ka ko e teunga mahuʻinga ʻae loungutu ʻoe poto.
16 Ke toʻo pe ʻae kofu ʻoʻona ʻoku tongia ha taha ʻoku taʻeʻiloʻi:
pea ke maʻu mei ai ʻae tuku paʻanga ko e langomekina ʻoe fefine muli.
17 Ko e mā ʻoku maʻu ʻi he kākā ʻoku ifoifo lelei ki he tangata:
ka ʻe toki fakafonu kimui ʻa hono ngutu ʻaki ʻae pata.
18 ‌ʻOku tuʻumaʻu ʻae tuʻutuʻuni kotoa pē ʻi he fakakaukau:
pea ka hoko ʻae tau, ke tomuʻa fakakaukau lelei ki ai.
19 Ko ia ʻoku ʻalu fano ko e faʻa fafana ʻoku fakahā ʻe ia ʻae ngaahi tala fufū:
ko ia ʻoua naʻa ke kau kiate ia ʻoku faʻa lapu ʻaki hono loungutu.
20 Ko ia kotoa pē ʻoku kape ki heʻene tamai pe ki heʻene faʻē,
ʻe tāmateʻi ke mate ʻa hono maama ʻi he fakapoʻuli ʻoe ʻuliʻuli.
21 ‌ʻE faʻa maʻu fakavave ha tofiʻa ʻi he kamataʻanga:
ka e ʻikai fakamonūʻia ia ʻi hono ikuʻanga.
22 ‌ʻOua naʻa ke pehē ʻe koe, “Te u totongi ʻeau ki he kovi;”
ka ke tatali pe kia Sihova, pea te ne fakamoʻui koe.
23 Ko e faikehekehe ʻi he fakamamafa meʻa, koe fakalielia ia kia Sihova:
pea ko e meʻa fakamamafa kākā ʻoku ʻikai lelei ia.
24 ‌ʻOku pule pe ʻa Sihova ki he tangata ʻi hono ngaahi ʻaluʻanga:
pea ko ia, ʻe faʻa ʻiloʻi fēfē ʻe he tangata ʻa hono hala ʻoʻona?
25 Ko e kai ʻoe meʻa ʻoku tapu ko e tauhele ia ki he tangata kuo ne fai ia:
pea ʻoku pehē foki ʻae fai ʻoe fuakava, kae toki fehuʻi kimui ki hono ʻuhinga.
26 ‌ʻOku fakamovetevete ʻae angahala ʻe he tuʻi ʻoku poto;
ʻo ne taʻomi ʻakinautolu ʻaki ʻae meʻa teka.
27 Ko e laumālie ʻoe tangata ko e maama ia meia Sihova,
ʻoku fakamaama ʻae potu kotoa pē ʻoku ʻi loto ʻiate ia.
28 ‌ʻOku fakamoʻui ʻae tuʻi ʻe he ʻaloʻofa mo e moʻoni:
pea ʻoku fokotuʻumaʻu hono nofoʻa ʻi he ʻaloʻofa.
29 Ko e toulekeleka ʻoe kau talavou ʻa honau mālohi:
pea ko e meʻa matamatalelei ʻi he kau mātuʻa ko honau ʻuluhinā.
30 Ko e lavea ʻoku toka ʻuli ko e faitoʻo ia ki he kovi:
ʻoku pehē foki hono ʻaonga ʻoe tautea ki he ngaahi potu ʻi loto.
