Tongan Bible (Revised West Version) Hiva ʻa Solomone 4
4
1 ʻOku fakahā ʻe Kalaisi ʻae hoihoifua ʻoe siasi. 8 ʻOku ne fakahā ʻa ʻene ʻofa ki ai. 16 ʻOku kole ʻae siasi ke ne teuteu ki hono ʻao.
Vakai, ʻoku ke hoihoifua, ʻE hoku ʻofaʻanga;
vakai, ʻoku ke hoihoifua;
ʻoku tatau ho mata mo e mata ʻoe lupe ʻoku fakalilo ʻaki ho louʻulu:
pea ko ho louʻulu ʻoku hangē ko e louʻulu ʻoe fanga kosi,
ʻoku fafanga ʻi he moʻunga ko Kiliati.
‌ʻOku tatau ho kaunifo mo e fanga sipi kuo kosikosi,
pea ʻoku ʻalu hake mei he kaukauʻi;
he ʻoku taki ʻuhiua ʻa honau ʻuhiki,
pea ʻoku ʻikai ke paʻa ha taha ʻi ai.
‌ʻOku tatau mo e afo kulokula ho loungutu;
pea ʻoku mālie ho leʻo;
pea ʻoku tatau mo e konga pomikanite ʻa ho manifinifihanga ʻoku fakalilo ʻaki ho louʻulu.
‌ʻOku tatau ho kia mo e fale māʻolunga naʻe langa ʻe Tevita ko e tukuʻanga ʻoe mahafutau,
ʻaia ʻoku tautau ai ʻae fakaū ʻe afe,
ʻae pā kotoa pē ʻoe kau tangata toʻa.
‌ʻOku tatau ho ongo huhu mo e ongo kāseli mui ʻoku na tatau,
ʻaia ʻoku kai ʻi he potu ʻoe ngaahi lile.
Te u ʻalu au ki he moʻunga ʻoe mula,
mo e moʻunga ʻoe laipeno,
pea te u ʻi ai ʻo aʻu ki he maʻa hake ʻae ʻaho,
mo e puna atu ʻoe fakapoʻuli.
 
‌ʻE hoku ʻofaʻanga, ʻoku ke hoihoifua haohaoa;
ʻoku ʻikai ha mele ʻiate koe.
Haʻu mo au mei Lepanoni, ʻE hoku ʻunoho,
haʻu mo au mei Lepanoni;
sio hifo mei he tumutumu ʻo ʻAmana,
mei he tumutumu ʻo Senila mo Heamoni,
mei he ʻana ʻoe fanga laione,
mei he ngaahi moʻunga ʻoe fanga lēpati.
‌ʻE hoku tuofefine mo hoku ʻunoho,
kuo kavea hoku loto kiate koe; kuo mole hoku loto ʻi he sio mai tuʻo taha pe ʻa ho mata,
mo e kahoa pe taha ʻi ho kia.
10 Hono ʻikai matamatalelei ʻa hoʻo ʻofa, ʻE hoku tuofefine mo hoku ʻunoho!
Hono ʻikai lelei hake hoʻo ʻofa ʻi he uaine,
mo e nanamu ʻo hoʻo ngaahi meʻa tākai ʻi he meʻa namu kakala kotoa pē.
11 ‌ʻE hoku ʻunoho, ʻoku toʻi ho loungutu ʻo hangē ko e hone mei hono ngeʻesi:
ʻoku ʻi lalo ʻi ho ʻelelo ʻae hone mo e huʻahuhu;
pea ko e nanamu ʻo ho ngaahi kofu ʻoku tatau mo e nanamu ʻo Lepanoni.
12 ‌ʻOku tatau mo e ngoue kuo ʻāʻi, ʻa hoku tuofefine mo hoku ʻunoho;
ko e vai mapunopuna ia kuo taʻofia,
ko e matavai ia kuo tāpuni ke maʻu.
13 Ko ia ʻoku tupu ʻiate koe ʻoku tatau mo e ngoue pomikanite mo hono ngaahi fua lelei;
ko e saipalesi mo e naatosi,
14 Ko e naatosi mo e kakosi;
ko e kalamusi mo e sinamoni, mo e ʻakau kotoa pē ʻoku namu lelei;
ko e mula mo e ʻalosi, mo e fungani hake ʻoe ngaahi kakala kotoa pē:
15 Ko e matavai ʻi he ngaahi ngoue,
ko e matavai ʻoe ngaahi vai moʻui,
mo e ngaahi vaitafe mei Lepanoni.
16 ‌ʻE matangi tokelau, ke ke ʻaa pea haʻu mo e tonga;
ʻo havilivili ki heʻeku ngoue, koeʻuhi ke ngangatu mei ai ʻae ngaahi namu kakala.
Tuku ke haʻu ʻa hoku ʻofaʻanga ki heʻene ngoue,
mo ne kai ai hono ngaahi fua lelei.
