Kapau ʻoku tau muimui ʻia Kalaisi, te tau feinga ke kau pea mo paotoloaki ʻEne ngāue ʻo e huhuʻí.

ʻI he kuonga ʻo e nofoʻi fakakoloniá, naʻe lahi e fie maʻu kau ngāué ʻi ʻAmelika. ʻI he lolotonga ʻo e senituli 18 mo e konga kimuʻa ʻo e senituli 19, naʻe uki ha kau ngāue ʻe lava ʻo hikifonua mei Pilitānia Lahi, Siamane, pea mo ha ngaahi fonua ʻIulope kehe, ka ko e tokolahi ʻo kinautolu ne fie oó, naʻe ʻikai ke nau maʻu ha totongi ki he folaú. Naʻe ʻikai ko ha meʻa foʻou ki he kakai ko ʻení ke nau folau fakamoʻua pe aleapau ke nau ngāue taʻe-totongi ʻi ha vahaʻataimi pau, ʻi he hili ʻenau tūʻutá, ko e totongi ʻenau folaú. Naʻe omi ha niʻihi ʻi he palōmesi ʻe totongi kinautolu ʻe ha kau mēmipa ʻo e fāmilí kuo nau ʻosi ʻi ʻAmelika, ʻi haʻanau tūʻuta, ka kapau he ʻikai hoko ia, naʻe haʻisia leva ʻa e kau omi foʻou ko ʻení ke totongi ‘enau fakamolé ʻaki haʻanau ngāue taʻe-totongi. Ko e foʻi lea naʻe ui ʻaki e kau hikifoʻou aleapaú ni ko e “kau totongi huhuʻi.” Naʻe pau ke nau totongi huhuʻi e mahuʻinga ʻo enau folaú—pe ko hono ʻai ʻe tahá ne fakatau ʻenau tauʻatāiná—ʻaki ʻenau ngāue.1

Ko e taha ʻo e huafa mahuʻinga taha ʻokú ne fakamatalaʻi ʻa Sīsū Kalaisí ko e Huhuʻi. Pea hangē ko hono fakamahino ʻi heʻeku kiʻi fakamatala nounou ki he kau hikifonua “totongi huhuʻí,” ʻoku ʻuhinga e foʻi lea huhuʻí, ke totongi ha haʻisia pe moʻua. ʻE toe lava foki ke ʻuhinga ʻa e huhuʻí ke fakahaofi pe fakatauʻatāinaʻi ʻi hano totongi ha moʻua. Kapau ʻoku fai ʻe ha taha ha fehalaaki peá ne fakatonutonu pē ia ʻiate ia pe fai ha totongi fakalelei, ʻoku tau pehē leva kuó ne huhuʻi pē ʻe ia ia. ʻOku fakafōtunga mai ʻe he ngaahi ʻuhingá ni takitaha ha ngaahi konga kehekehe ʻo e Huhuʻi maʻongoʻonga ne fai ʻe Kalaisi ʻi Heʻene Fakaleleí, ʻa ia ʻoku kau ai, ʻo fakatatau mo e fakalea ʻa e tikisinalé, “ke fakatauʻatāinaʻi mei he angahalá mo hono ngaahi tauteá, hangē ko hano fai ha feilaulau ʻe he taha angahalá.”2

ʻOku konga ua e Huhuʻi ʻa e Fakamoʻuí. ʻUluakí, ko ʻene fakalelei maʻá e maumaufono ʻa ʻĀtamá mo hono nunuʻa ko e Hinga ʻa e tangatá, ʻaki hono ikunaʻi e meʻa ʻe lava ke ui ko e ngaahi nunuʻa fakahangatonu ʻo e Hingá—ʻa ia ko e mate fakaesinó mo e mate fakalaumālié. ʻOku mahino lelei pē mate fakaesinó; ka ko e mate fakalaumālié ko e mavahe ia ʻa e tangatá mei he ʻOtuá. ʻI hono fakalea ʻe Paulá, “He ʻoku hangē ʻoku mate kotoa pē ʻia ʻĀtamá, ʻe pehē foki, ʻe moʻui kotoa pē ʻia Kalaisi” (1 Kolinitō 15:22). Ko e huhuʻi ko ʻeni mei he mate fakaesinó mo e mate fakalaumālié, ʻoku fakatou fakaemāmanilahi ia pea ʻikai hano makatuʻunga.3

Ko e tafaʻaki hono ua ʻo e Fakalelei ʻa e Fakamoʻuí ko e huhuʻi mei he meʻa ʻe lava ke tau ui ko e ngaahi nunuʻa ʻoku ʻikai kaunga fakahangatonu ki he Hingá—ʻa ʻetau angahala ʻatautolú kae ʻikai ko e maumaufono ʻa ʻĀtamá. Tuʻunga ʻi he Hingá ʻoku fāʻeleʻi ai kitautolu ki he maama fakamatelié, ʻa ia ʻoku ʻuʻufi ʻe he fai-angahalá—ʻa e talangataʻa ki he fono fakalangi kuo fokotuʻú. ʻOku folofola e ʻEikí, fekauʻaki mo kitautolu kotoa:

“ʻI heʻenau kamata ke tupu haké, ʻoku tupu hake ʻa e angahalá ʻi honau lotó, pea nau ʻiloʻi ai ʻa e meʻa mahí, koeʻuhí ke nau ʻiloʻi hono fakamahuʻingaʻi ʻa e leleí.

“Pea kuo tuku kiate kinautolu ke nau ʻiloʻi ʻa e leleí mei he koví; ko ia, ʻoku nau hoko ai ko e niʻihi ke fili maʻanautolu pē” (Mōsese 6:55–56).

Koeʻuhí ʻoku tau haʻisia pea ʻoku tau fai e ngaahi filí, ʻoku fakatuʻunga leva e hoko ʻa e huhuʻi mei heʻetau ngaahi angahalá—ʻo makatuʻunga ʻi he vete mo e siʻaki ʻo e angaahalá pea liliu ki ha moʻui faka-ʻOtua, pe ko hono ʻai ʻe tahá, makatuʻunga ʻi he fakatomalá (vakai, T&F 58:43). ʻOku tuʻutuʻuni ʻe he ʻEikí,“Ko ia, akoʻi ia ki hoʻo fānaú, kuo pau ke fakatomala ʻa e kakai kotoa pē, ʻi he feituʻu kotoa pē, pe ʻe ʻikai te nau teitei lava ʻo maʻu ʻa e puleʻanga ʻo e ʻOtuá, he ʻoku ʻikai ke lava ʻo nofo ʻi ai ha meʻa ʻoku taʻe-maʻa, pe nofo ʻi hono ʻaó” (Mōsese 6:57).

ʻOku hanga ʻe he mamahi ʻa e Fakamoʻuí ʻi Ketisemaní pea mo ʻEne faingataʻaʻia ʻi he funga kolosí ʻo huhuʻi kitautolu mei heʻetau angahalá ʻaki hono fakalato e ngaahi fie maʻu ʻa e fakamaau totonú kiate kitautolú. ʻOkú Ne ʻaloʻofa mo fakamolemoleʻi kinautolu ʻoku fakatomalá. ʻOku toe fakalato foki ʻe he Fakaleleí ʻa e moʻua ʻo e fakamāú kiate kitautolu ʻaki hono fakamoʻui mo totongi huhuʻi kitautolu ʻi ha mamahi ne tau fuesia ka ʻoku tau tonuhia ai. “Vakai, ʻokú ne kātakiʻi ʻa e ngaahi mamahi ʻa e kakai kotoa pē, ʻio, ʻa e ngaahi mamahi ʻa e kakai moʻui kotoa pē, ʻa e kakai tangata mo e kakai fefine fakatouʻosi, pea mo e fānau ʻa ia ʻoku kau ʻi he fāmili ʻo ʻĀtamá” (2 Nīfai 9:21; vakai foki, ʻAlamā 7:11–12).4

Kapau ʻoku tau muimui ʻia Kalaisi, te tau feinga ke kau pea mo paotoloaki ʻEne ngāue ʻo e huhuʻí. Ko e ngāue maʻongoʻonga taha te tau lava ʻo fai maʻa ha niʻihi ʻi he moʻui ko ʻení, ʻo kamata meiate kinautolu ʻi hotau fāmili tonú, ko hano ʻomi kinautolu kia Kalaisi ʻi he tui mo e fakatomala ke nau lava ʻo aʻusia ʻa ʻEne Huhuʻí—ha nonga mo e fiefiá he taimí ni, mo e moʻui taʻe-faʻamaté mo e moʻui taʻengatá ʻi he maama ka haʻú. Ko e ngāue ʻa ʻetau kau faifekaú ko hano fakahaaʻi lelei ia ʻo e ʻofa huhuʻi ʻa e ʻEikí. ʻI heʻenau hoko ko ʻEne kau talafekau kuo fakamafaiʻí, ʻoku nau ʻoatu ai ʻa e ngaahi tāpuaki taʻe-fakatataua ʻo e tui kia Sīsū Kalaisí, fakatomalá, papitaisó, mo e meʻafoaki ʻo e Laumālie Māʻoniʻoní, ʻo tofa ai ʻa e hala ki he fanauʻi foʻou fakalaumālié pea mo e huhuʻí.

Te tau lava foki ʻo tokoni foki ʻi hono huhuʻi ʻe he ʻEikí ʻa kinautolu he tafaʻaki ʻe taha ʻo e faʻitoká. “Ko e kaumātuʻa angatonu ko ia ʻo e kounga ko ʻení, ʻi heʻenau mavahe atu mei he moʻui fakamatelié, ʻoku hoko atu ai pē ʻa ʻenau ngāue ʻi hono malanga ʻaki ʻo e ongoongolelei ʻo e fakatomalá mo e huhuʻí, tuʻunga ʻi he feilaulau ʻa e ʻAlo pē Taha naʻe Fakatupu ʻo e ʻOtuá, ʻi he lotolotonga ʻo kinautolu ʻoku nau ʻi he fakapoʻulí pea nau kei haʻisia ʻi he angahalá ʻi he fuʻu maama lahi fau ʻo e ngaahi laumālie ʻo e kau pekiá” (T&F 138:57). Ko hono ʻaonga ʻo e ngaahi ouau fakafofonga ʻoku tau fakahoko ʻi he ngaahi temipale ʻo e ʻOtuá, ko e malava ke fakatauʻatāinaʻi ai mo kinautolu ne mate ʻi he pōpula ʻo e angahalá.5

Neongo ʻoku fekauʻaki ha konga lahi ʻo e huhuʻí mo e fakatomalá mo e fakamolemolé, ka ʻoku ʻi ai mo ha tafaʻaki fakatuʻasino mātuʻaki mahuʻinga foki. ʻOku tala ʻo pehē naʻe hāʻele holo ʻa Sīsū ʻo fai lelei (vakai, Ngāue 10:38), ʻa ia ne kau ai hono fakamoʻui ʻo e mahakí mo e faingataʻaʻiá, ʻoatu ha meʻakai ki ha kakai tokolahi ne fiekaia, mo faiako ʻi ha founga lelei ange fau. “Naʻe ʻikai haʻu ʻa e [Foha ʻo e Tangatá] ke tauhi ia, ka ke tauhi pea ke foaki ʻene moʻuí ko e huhuʻi ʻo e tokolahi” (Mātiu 20:28). Fakatauange te tau lava mo kitautolu, ʻi he ivi takiekina ʻo e Laumālie Māʻoniʻoní, ʻo feʻaluaki fano ʻo fai lelei ʻi he sīpinga huhuʻi ʻa e ʻEikí.

ʻOku ʻuhinga ʻa e faʻahinga ngāue huhuʻi ko ʻení ke tokoniʻi ʻa e kakaí mo ʻenau ngaahi palopalemá. ʻOku ʻuhinga ia ke fakakaungāmeʻa ki he paeá mo e vaivaí, tokoniʻi ʻa e mamahí, fakatonutonu ʻa e fehalākí, taukaveʻi ʻa e moʻoní, fakamālohia e toʻu tangata kei tupu haké, mo aʻusia ʻa e malu mo e fiefia ʻi ʻapí. Ko e konga lahi ʻetau ngāue huhuʻi ʻi māmaní, ko hono tokoniʻi ʻo e niʻihi kehé ke nau tupulaki mo ikunaʻi ʻenau ngaahi ʻamanaki mo e fakaʻānaua totonú.

Ko ha sīpinga ʻe taha mei he talanoa ʻa Vikitā Hiuko ko e Les Misérables, neongo ko e faʻu, ka ʻoku ongo maʻu pē mo ne fakaivia au. Ofi ki he kamataʻanga ʻo e talanoá, naʻe hanga ʻe Pīsope Pienivenu ʻi ha pō ʻe taha, ʻo foaki ha meʻakai mo ha feituʻu ke mohe ai ʻa e ʻauhē ko Sione Valasoní, ʻa ia ne toki tukuange mai pē mei pilīsoni hili haʻane ngāue ʻi ha taʻu ʻe 19, ko haʻane kaihaʻasi ha foʻi mā ke fafangaʻi aki siʻi fānau fiekaia hono tuofefiné. ʻI heʻene loto-tāngia mo ʻitá, naʻá ne fetongi e angaʻofa ʻa Pīsope Pienivenú ʻaki haʻane kaihaʻasi ʻene koloa silivá. ʻI hono puke kimui ʻi he huʻuhuʻu e kau polisí, ne loi ʻa Valasoni ia ko e silivá ko ha meʻaʻofa ange ki ai. Ka ʻi hono toho atu ia ʻe he kau polisí ki he fale ʻo e pīsopé, ne ʻohovale lahi ʻa Valasoni ʻi hono fakamoʻoniʻi ʻe Pīsope Pienivenu ʻene fakamatalá mo ʻai ke ongo moʻoni angé, naʻá ne pehē, “‘Ko ia!

Ne ʻunuʻunu atu e pīsopé, ʻo pehē ange, ʻi ha kiʻi leʻo siʻi:

Naʻe hoko moʻoni ʻa Sione Valasoni ko ha tangata foʻou, ko ha tangata faitotonu pea tokoni lahi ki ha kakai tokolahi. Naʻá ne tauhi ʻa e ongo tuʻuʻanga teʻelango silivá ʻi heʻene moʻuí kotoa, ke fakamanatu kiate ia kuo huhuʻi ia maʻá e ʻOtuá.6
