1 Ko e tohi naʻe fakamaʻu ʻaki ʻae meʻa fakamaʻu ʻe fitu: 6 ʻAia ʻoku ʻikai ke taau mo ha taha ke toʻo, ka ko e Lami pe naʻe tāmateʻi. 12 Ko ia ʻoku fakafetaʻi ai kiate ia ʻe he kau mātuʻa, 9 Pea nau fakahā naʻa ne huhuʻi ʻakinautolu ʻaki hono taʻataʻa.
Pea ne u mamata ʻi he nima toʻomataʻu ʻo ia naʻe nofo ʻi he nofoʻa fakaʻeiʻeiki ʻae tohi kuo tohi ʻi loto mo tuʻa, pea fakamaʻu ʻaki ʻae meʻa fakamaʻu ʻe fitu. Pea ne u mamata ki ha ʻāngelo mālohi, ʻoku kalanga ʻaki ʻae leʻo lahi, “Ko hai ʻoku taau ke toʻo ʻae tohi, mo vete hono ngaahi meʻa fakamaʻu ʻo ia?” Pea naʻe ʻikai ha tokotaha ʻi he langi, pe ʻi māmani, pe ʻi lalo ʻi māmani, ʻoku faʻa fai ke toʻo ʻae tohi, pe ke mamata ki ai. Pea ne u tangi lahi, koeʻuhi naʻe ʻikai ke ʻiloʻi ha taha ʻoku taau ke ne toʻo mo lau ʻae tohi, pe ke mamata ki ai. Pea pehē ʻe ha tokotaha ʻoe kau mātuʻa kiate au, “ʻOua ʻe tangi: vakai, ko e Laione ʻoe faʻahinga ʻo Siuta, ko e Aka ʻo Tevita, kuo ne lavaʻi ke ne toʻo ʻae tohi, pea ke vete ʻa hono meʻa fakamaʻu ʻe fitu.” Pea ne u mamata, pea vakai, ʻi he haʻohaʻonga ʻoe nofoʻa fakaʻeiʻeiki mo e meʻa moʻui ʻe fā, pea ʻi he haʻohaʻonga ʻoe kau mātuʻa, naʻe tuaʻā e Lami ʻo hangē kuo tāmateʻi, kuo fitu ʻae nifo ʻi hono ʻulu, mo e mata ʻe fitu, ʻaia ko e Laumālie ʻe Fitu ʻoe ʻOtua ʻoku fekau atu ki māmani kotoa pē. Pea naʻe haʻu ia, ʻo ne toʻo ʻae tohi mei he nima toʻomataʻu ʻo ia naʻe nofo ʻi he nofoʻa fakaʻeiʻeiki. Pea ʻi heʻene toʻo ʻae tohi, naʻe fakafoʻohifo ʻi he ʻao ʻoe Lami ʻae meʻa moʻui ʻe fā mo e kau mātuʻa ʻe toko uofulu ma toko fā, naʻa nau taki taha ʻae haʻape, mo e hina koula kuo pito ʻi he meʻa namu kakala, ʻaia ko e ngaahi lotu ʻoe kakai māʻoniʻoni. Pea naʻa nau hiva ʻaki ʻae hiva foʻou, ʻo pehē,
“ʻOku taau mo koe ke toʻo ʻae tohi,
Pea ke vete hono ngaahi meʻa fakamaʻu ʻo ia:
He naʻe tāmateʻi koe,
Pea kuo ke huhuʻi ʻae kakai ʻaki ho taʻataʻa ki he ʻOtua,
Mei he faʻahinga, mo e lea, mo e kakai, mo e puleʻanga kotoa pē.
10 Pea kuo ke ngaohi ʻakinautolu ko e ngaahi tuʻi mo e kau taulaʻeiki ki homau ʻOtua:
Pea te nau pule ʻi he maama.”
11 Pea ne u vakai, pea u fanongo ki he leʻo ʻoe kau ʻāngelo tokolahi naʻe tuʻu takatakai ʻi he nofoʻa fakaʻeiʻeiki mo e ngaahi meʻa moʻui mo e kau mātuʻa: pea ko honau lau ko e ngaahi toko mano lauʻi ngaahi mano, mo e ngaahi toko afe lauʻi ngaahi toko afe; 12 ‌ʻOku nau pehē, ʻaki ʻae leʻo lahi, “ʻOku taau mo e Lami naʻe tāmateʻi Ke tuku kiate ia ʻae māfimafi, mo e koloa, mo e poto, Mo e mālohi, mo e fakaʻapaʻapa, mo e ongoongolelei, mo e fakafetaʻi.” 13 Pea ne u fanongo ki he ngaahi meʻa kotoa pē ʻaia ʻoku ʻi he langi, pea ʻi he māmani, pea ʻi lalo ʻi māmani, pea mo ia ʻoku ʻi he tahi, pea mo kinautolu kotoa pē ʻoku ʻi ai, naʻa nau pehē, “Ke ʻiate ia ʻoku nofo ʻi he nofoʻa fakaʻeiʻeiki, pea ki he Lami, ʻae fakafetaʻi, mo e fakaʻapaʻapa, mo e ongoongolelei, mo e māfimafi, ʻo taʻengata pea taʻengata.” 14 Pea naʻe pehē ʻe he meʻa moʻui ʻe fā, “ʻEmeni.” Pea naʻe fakafoʻohifo ʻae mātuʻa ʻe toko uofulu ma toko fā, ʻo hū kiate ia ʻoku moʻui ʻo taʻengata pea taʻengata.
