Pea naʻe toe haʻu ʻae ʻāngelo naʻa ma talanoa mo au, ʻo ne fafangu au, ʻo hangē ko e fafangu ha taha ʻoku mohe. Pea naʻa ne pehē kiate au, “Ko e hā ʻoku ke sio ki ai?” Pea naʻaku pehē ʻeau, “Kuo u sio, pea vakai, ko e tuʻunga maama ko e koula haohaoa pe, mo e ʻaiʻanga lolo ʻi ʻolunga, mo hono tuʻunga maama ʻe fitu ʻi ai, mo e tafeʻanga lolo ʻe fitu ki he tuʻunga maama ʻe fitu, ʻaia ʻoku ʻi hono potu ki ʻolunga: Pea ʻoku tuʻu vāofi mo ia ʻae ongo ʻakau ko e ʻolive, ko e taha ʻi he potu toʻomataʻu ʻoe ʻaiʻanga lolo, pea ko e taha ʻi hono potu fakatoʻohema.” Ko ia ne u pehēange ai ki he ʻāngelo naʻa ma talanoa mo au, “ʻE hoku ʻeiki ko e hā ʻena?” Pea naʻe pehē mai ʻe he ʻāngelo naʻa ma talanoa mo au, “ʻOku ʻikai te ke ʻilo pe ko e hā ʻae ngaahi meʻa na?” Pea naʻaku pehē, “ʻE hoku ʻeiki, ʻoku ʻikai.” Pea toki tali mai ʻe ia ʻo ne pehē kiate au, “Ko eni ʻae folofola ʻa Sihova kia Selupepeli, ʻo pehē, ‘ʻOku ʻikai ko ha meʻa ʻi ha kau tau pe ʻi ha mālohi, ka ʻi hoku Laumālie ʻoʻoku, ʻoku pehē ʻe Sihova ʻoe ngaahi kautau.’ ” Ko hai koe, ʻE moʻunga māʻolunga? ʻE fakalafalafa hifo koe ʻi he ʻao ʻo Selupepeli: pea ʻe ʻomi ʻe ia ʻae maka tauʻolunga ki ai ʻi he mavava mo e kalanga, ʻo pehē, “Ke ʻi ai ʻae ʻaloʻofa, ke ʻi ai ʻae ʻaloʻofa.” Naʻe hoko foki ʻae folofola ʻa Sihova kiate au, ʻo pehē, “Kuo ʻai ʻae tuʻunga ʻoe fale ni ʻe he nima ʻo Selupepeli; pea ʻe fakaʻosi ia foki ʻe hono nima ʻoʻona, pea te mou ʻilo kuo fekau mai au ʻe Sihova ʻoe ngaahi kautau.” 10 He ko hai kuo ne manuki ki he ʻaho ʻoe meʻa siʻi?
