3 ʻOku lilingi ʻe he kau ʻāngelo honau ngaahi hina kuo pito ʻi he houhau. 6 Ko e ngaahi malaʻia ʻoku hoko ai leva. 15 ʻOku haʻu ʻa Kalaisi ʻo hangē ha kaihaʻa. ʻOku monūʻia ʻakinautolu ʻoku leʻo.
Pea ne u fanongo ki he leʻo lahi mei he fale tapu, naʻe pehē ki he ʻāngelo ʻe toko fitu, “Mou ʻalu atu, ʻo lilingi ʻae ngaahi hina ʻoe houhau ʻoe ʻOtua ki he fonua.” Pea naʻe ʻalu ʻae ʻuluaki, ʻo ne lilingi ʻene hina ki he fonua; pea tō ai ʻae pala kovi mo fakamamahi ki he kakai naʻa nau maʻu ʻae fakaʻilonga ʻoe manu fekai, mo kinautolu naʻa nau hū ki hono fakatātā. Pea naʻe lilingi ʻe hono ua ʻoe ʻāngelo ʻa ʻene hina ki he tahi; pea naʻe liliu ai ia ke hangē ko e toto ʻo ha taha kuo mate: pea naʻe mate ai ʻae meʻa moʻui kotoa pē naʻe ʻi he tahi. Pea naʻe lilingi ʻe hono tolu ʻoe ʻāngelo ʻa ʻene hina ki he ngaahi vaitafe mo e ngaahi matavai ʻoe ngaahi vai; pea naʻe liliu ai ia ko e toto. Pea ne u ongoʻi ʻae ʻāngelo ʻoe ngaahi vai, naʻe pehē ʻe ia, “ʻOku ke angatonu mo māʻoniʻoni, ʻe ʻEiki, ʻOku ke ʻi ai ni, pea naʻa ke ʻi ai, Koeʻuhi kuo ke fakamaau ʻo pehē ni. He kuo nau lilingi ʻae toto ʻoe kakai māʻoniʻoni mo e kau palōfita, Pea kuo ke ʻatu kiate kinautolu ʻae toto ke inu; He ʻoku taau mo kinautolu. Pea ne u fanongo ki he tokotaha, naʻe pehē mai mei he ʻesifeilaulau, “Ko e moʻoni, ʻe ʻEiki, ko e ʻOtua Māfimafi, ʻoku angatonu mo māʻoniʻoni ʻa hoʻo ngaahi fakamaau.” Pea naʻe lilingi ʻe hono fā ʻoe ʻāngelo ʻa ʻene hina ki he laʻā; pea naʻe tuku kiate ia ke ne fakamangia ʻaki ʻae afi ʻae kakai. Pea naʻe mangia ʻo vela lahi ʻae kakai, ʻonau lauʻikovi ʻae huafa ʻoe ʻOtua, ʻaia ʻoku ne puleʻi ʻae ngaahi malaʻia ni: pea naʻe ʻikai te nau fakatomala ke nau fakamālō ai kiate ia. 10 Pea naʻe lilingi ʻe hono nima ʻoe ʻāngelo ʻa ʻene hina ki he nofoʻanga ʻoe manu fekai; pea naʻe pito hono puleʻanga ʻi he fakapoʻuli; pea nau ngūngū honau ʻelelo ʻi he mamahi, 11 Mo nau lauʻikovi ʻae ʻOtua ʻoe langi, koeʻuhi ko ʻenau ngaahi mamahi mo honau ngaahi pala, ka naʻe ʻikai te nau fakatomala ʻi heʻenau ngaahi ngāue. 12 Pea naʻe lilingi ʻe hono ono ʻoe ʻāngelo ʻa ʻene hina ki he vaitafe lahi ko ʻIufaletesi; pea naʻe fakamamaha hono vai ʻoʻona, koeʻuhi ke teuteu ʻae hala ʻoe ngaahi tuʻi mei he potu hahake. 13 Pea ne u mamata ko e laumālie ʻuli ʻe toko tolu, naʻe hangē ko e fanga poto, naʻe haʻu mei he ngutu ʻoe fuʻu ngata, mo e ngutu ʻoe manu fekai, mo e ngutu ʻoe palōfita loi. 14 He ko e ngaahi laumālie ʻakinautolu ʻoe kau tēvolo, ʻoku fai ʻae ngaahi mana, ʻoku ʻalu atu ki he ngaahi tuʻi ʻoe fonua pea mo māmani kotoa pē, ke tānaki ʻakinautolu ki he tau ʻoe ʻaho lahi ko ia ʻoe ʻOtua Māfimafi.
15 ¶ “Vakai, ʻoku ou haʻu ʻo hangē ha kaihaʻa. ʻOku monūʻia ia ʻoku leʻo, pea tauhi hono ngaahi kofu, telia naʻa ʻalu telefua, pea nau mamata ki heʻene mā.” 16 Pea naʻa ne tānaki ʻakinautolu ki he potu ʻoku ui ʻi he lea fakaHepelū ko Amaketone. 17 Pea naʻe lilingi ʻe hono fitu ʻoe ʻāngelo ʻa ʻene hina ki he ʻatā; pea naʻe ongo mai ʻae leʻo lahi mei he fale tapu ʻi he langi, mei he nofoʻa fakaʻeiʻeiki, ʻoku pehē mai, “Kuo fai ia.” 18 Pea naʻe ai ʻae ngaahi leʻo, mo e mana, mo e ʻuhila; pea naʻe ai ʻae mofuike lahi, naʻe ʻikai hano tatau talu ʻae nofo ʻoe kakai ʻi māmani, ʻae fuʻu mofuike, kuo pehē hono fakamanavahē mo lahi. 19 Pea naʻe vahe tolu ʻae kolo lahi, pea naʻe hinga ʻae ngaahi kolo ʻoe ngaahi puleʻanga: pea naʻe manatuʻi ʻa Papilone lahi ʻi he ʻao ʻoe ʻOtua, ke ʻatu ki ai ʻae ipu ʻoe uaine kakaha ʻo hono houhau. 20 Pea naʻe puna atu ʻae motu kotoa pē, pea ʻikai ʻiloʻi ʻae ngaahi moʻunga. 21 Pea naʻe tō ʻae ʻuhamaka lahi mei he langi ki he kakai, ʻo taki taha mamafa ʻae foʻi maka ʻo tatau mo e taleniti: pea naʻe lauʻikoviʻi ʻae ʻOtua ʻe he kakai koeʻuhi ko e malaʻia ʻoe ʻuhamaka; he ko e malaʻia ko ia ko e meʻa lahi ʻaupito.
