1 Ko e anganofo, mo e ngaahi ngāue kehekehe, ʻoku totonu ke tau fai ki he pule. 8 Ko e fakamoʻoni ki he fono ʻae ʻofa. 11 Ko e ʻuakai mo e kona, mo e ngaahi ngāue ʻoe poʻuli ʻoku taʻengali ʻaupito ʻi he kuonga ʻoe ongoongolelei.
Ke fakavaivai ʻae tangata kotoa pē ki ke pule ʻoku māʻolunga. He ʻoku ʻikai ha pule kae mei he ʻOtua: pea ko e kau pule ʻoku ai, ʻoku tuʻutuʻuni ia ʻe he ʻOtua. Ko ia ʻoku angatuʻu ki he pule, ʻoku angatuʻu ki he tuʻutuʻuni ʻae ʻOtua: pea ko kinautolu ʻoku angatuʻu, te nau maʻu kiate kinautolu ʻae tautea. He ko e kau pule ʻoku ʻikai ko e fakailifia ki he ngaahi ngāue lelei, ka ki he kovi. Pea ko ho loto ke ʻoua naʻa manavahē koe ki he pule? Fai ʻaia ʻoku lelei, pea te ke maʻu mei ai ʻae fakamālō: He ko e tamaioʻeiki ʻae ʻOtua ia kiate koe ki he lelei. Pea kapau ʻoku ke fai ʻaia ʻoku kovi, ke ke manavahē; he ʻoku ʻikai ke toʻo noa pē ʻe ia ʻae heletā: he ko e tamaioʻeiki ia ʻae ʻOtua, ko e fai totongi ia ke tautea kiate ia ʻoku fai kovi. Ko ia ʻoku totonu ke mou fakavaivai, ʻo ʻikai pe naʻa ai ha tautea, ka koeʻuhi ko hono totonu. Ko e meʻa ko ia ke mou ʻatu ai ʻae tukuhau foki: he ko e kau tamaioʻeiki ʻae ʻOtua ʻakinautolu, ʻoku tokanga ʻo fai maʻu ki he meʻa ni pē. Ko ia ke ʻatu ki he kakai kotoa pē ʻaia ʻoku totonu: ʻae tukuhau kiate ia ʻoku totonu ki ai ʻae tukuhau; ko e totongi kiate ia ʻoku ʻaʻana totonu ʻae totongi; ko e manavahē kiate ia ʻoku ʻaʻana totonu ʻae manavahē; mo e fakaʻapaʻapa kiate ia ʻoku ʻaʻana totonu ʻae fakaʻapaʻapa. ‌ʻOua naʻa taʻetotongi ha meʻa ki ha taha, ka mou feʻofaʻaki pē kiate kimoutolu: he ko ia ʻoku ʻofa ki ha tokotaha, kuo fakamoʻoni ia ki he fono. Ko ia foki, “ʻOua naʻa ke tono fefine, ʻoua naʻa ke fakapō, ʻoua naʻa ke kaihaʻa, ʻoua naʻa ke fakamoʻoni loi, ʻoua naʻa ke manumanu;” pea ka ai mo ha fekau kehe, ʻoku lau fakataha ia ʻi he fekau ni, ʻa eni, “Ke ke ʻofa ki ho kaungāʻapi ʻo hangē pē ko koe.” 10 ‌ʻOku ʻikai fai ʻe he ʻofa ha kovi ki hono kaungāʻapi: ko ia ko e ʻofa ko hono fakamoʻoni ia ʻoe fono. 11 Pea ʻāsili pe ʻi hoʻomou ʻilo ʻae kuonga, kuo hokosia ʻaupito ʻae feituʻulaʻā ke ʻā ai mei he mohe: he ʻoku ofi lahi eni hotau fakamoʻui, ʻi heʻetau tomuʻa tui. 12 Kuo tei ʻosi ʻae pō, ʻoku ofi ʻae ʻaho: ko ia ke tau liʻaki ʻae ngaahi ngāue ʻoe poʻuli, pea tau ʻai ʻae mahafu ʻoe maama. 13 Ke tau felakaʻi ʻo matamatalelei, ʻo taau mo e ʻaho; ʻikai ʻi he kātoanga kai mo e faʻa konā, pe ʻi he feʻauaki mo e angafakalielia, pea ʻikai ʻi he fekeʻikeʻi mo e meheka. 14 Ka ke ʻai ʻekimoutolu ʻae ʻEiki ko Sisu Kalaisi, pea ʻoua naʻa tokonaki maʻae ngaahi holi ʻoe kakano.
