ʻOku fakaʻaongaʻi ʻe Nīfai mo Līhai hona taimí kotoa ʻi he malangá—ʻOku hanga ʻe hona hingoá ʻo fakamanatu mai kiate kinaua ke faʻifaʻitaki ʻena moʻuí ki heʻena ngaahi kuí—ʻOku huhuʻi ʻe Kalaisi ʻa kinautolu ʻoku fakatomalá—ʻOku fakaului ʻe Nīfai mo Līhai ha tokolahi pea ʻoku tuku pōpula ʻa kinaua, pea ʻoku takatakai ʻa kinaua ʻe he afi—ʻOku fakamalumalu ʻe ha ʻao fakapoʻuli ʻa e kakai ʻe toko tolungeau—ʻOku ngalulululu ʻa e kelekelé, pea fekauʻi ʻa e kakaí ʻe ha leʻo ke nau fakatomala—ʻOku fetalanoaʻaki ʻa Nīfai mo Līhai mo e kau ʻāngelo, pea ʻoku takatakai ʻa e fuʻu kakaí ʻe he afi. Taʻu 30 K.M. nai.

  Pea naʻe hoko ʻo pehē ʻi he taʻu pē ko iá, vakai, naʻe tuku ʻe aNīfai ʻa e nofoʻanga fakamāú ki ha tangata ʻa ia ko hono hingoá ko Sisolami.

  He naʻá na manatuʻi ʻa e ngaahi lea ʻa ia naʻe lea ʻaki kiate kinaua ʻe heʻena tamai ko Hilamaní. Pea ko e ngaahi lea ʻeni naʻá ne leaʻakí:

  Vakai, ʻe hoku ongo foha, ʻoku ou fakaʻamu ke mo manatu ke tauhi ʻa e ngaahi fekau ʻa e ʻOtuá; pea ʻoku ou loto ke mo fakahā ki he kakaí ʻa e ngaahi leá ni. Vakai, kuó u ʻai kiate kimoua ʻa e ongo hingoa ʻo ʻetau ʻuluaki amātuʻa ʻa ia naʻe haʻu mei he fonua ko Selūsalemá; pea kuó u fai ia koeʻuhí ʻi hoʻomo manatuʻi homo hingoá ke mo manatuʻi ai ʻa kinaua; pea ʻi hoʻomo manatuʻi ʻa kinauá ke mo manatuʻi ai ʻa ʻena ngaahi ngāué; pea ʻi hoʻomo manatuʻi ʻena ngaahi ngāué ke mo ʻilo ai kuo lau mo tohi naʻe blelei ia.

  Ko ia, ʻe hoku ongo foha, ʻoku ou fakaʻamu ke mo fai ʻa e meʻa ko ia ʻoku leleí, koeʻuhí ke lau ʻo kau kiate kimoua, mo tohi foki, ʻo hangē ko ia kuo lau mo tohi ʻo kau kiate kinauá.

  Pea ko ʻeni ʻe hoku ongo foha, vakai ʻoku ʻi ai mo ha ngaahi meʻa ʻe niʻihi ʻoku ou fie maʻu meiate kimoua, pea ko e meʻá ʻeni, ke ʻoua naʻá mo fai ʻa e ngaahi meʻá ni ke mo pōlepole ai, kae kehe ke mo fai ʻa e ngaahi meʻá ni ke mo tokonaki ai maʻamoua ha akoloa ʻi he langí, ʻio, ʻa ia ʻoku taʻengatá, pea ʻoku ʻikai mole hono mahuʻingá; ʻio, koeʻuhi ke mo maʻu ʻa e meʻaʻofa bmahuʻinga ʻo e moʻui taʻengatá, ʻa ia ʻoku ʻi ai haʻatau ʻuhinga ke mahalo kuo foaki ia ki heʻetau ngaahi tamaí.

  ʻOiauē manatu, manatu, ʻe hoku ongo foha, ki he ngaahi alea ʻa ia naʻe folofola ʻaki ʻe he tuʻi ko Penisimaní ki hono kakaí; ʻio, manatu ʻoku ʻikai mo ha toe hala kehe pe founga ʻe lava ʻo fakamoʻui ai ʻa e tangatá, kā ʻi he taʻataʻa bfakalelei pē ʻo Sīsū Kalaisi, ʻa ia ʻe hāʻele maí; ʻio, manatu ʻokú ne hāʻele maí ke chuhuʻi ʻa e dmāmaní.

  10  Pea manatuʻi foki ʻa e ngaahi alea ʻa ia naʻe lea ʻaki ʻe ʻAmuleki kia Sisolome, ʻi he kolo ko ʻAmonaihaá; he naʻá ne tala kiate ia kuo pau ke hāʻele mai ʻa e ʻEikí ke huhuʻi ʻa hono kakaí, ka ʻe ʻikai te ne hāʻele mai ke huhuʻi ʻa kinautolu ʻi heʻenau ngaahi angahalá, kae huhuʻi ʻa kinautolu mei heʻenau ngaahi angahalá.

  11  Pea kuo tuku kiate ia ʻa e mālohi ʻe he Tamaí ke huhuʻi ʻa kinautolu mei heʻenau ngaahi angahalá koeʻuhi ko e fakatomalá; ko ia kuó ne afekau mai ʻene kau ʻāngeló ke fakahā ʻa e ngaahi ongoongo ʻo e ngaahi tuʻunga ʻo e fakatomalá, ʻa ia ʻokú ne ʻomi kiate kinautolu ʻa e mālohi ʻo e Huhuʻí, ke fakamoʻui ʻa honau laumālié.

  12  Pea ko ʻeni, ʻe hoku ongo foha, manatu, manatu ʻoku makatuʻunga ʻi he amaka ʻo hotau Huhuʻí, ʻa ia ko Kalaisi, ko e ʻAlo ʻo e ʻOtuá, kuo pau ke mo langa ai homo bmakatuʻungá; koeʻuhi ka tuku atu ʻe he tēvoló ʻa ʻene ngaahi matangi mālohí, ʻio, ʻa ʻene ngaahi ngahaú ʻi he ʻahiohio, ʻio, ka faʻaki kiate kimoua ʻa hono kotoa ʻo ʻene ʻuha maká mo ʻene fuʻu cafā lahí, ʻe ʻikai maʻu ʻe ia ha mālohi kiate kimoua ke fusi hifo ʻa kimoua ki he vanu ʻo e mamahí mo e faingataʻaʻia ʻoku ʻikai hano ngataʻangá, koeʻuhi ko e maka kuo langa ai ʻa kimouá, ʻa ia ko e makatuʻunga mālohi, ʻa ia ko ha makatuʻunga kapau ʻe langa ai ʻa e tangatá ʻe ʻikai lava ke nau hinga.

  13  Pea naʻe hoko ʻo pehē ko e ngaahi lea ʻeni naʻe aakonaki ʻaki ʻe Hilamani ki hono ongo fohá; ʻio, naʻá ne akonaki ʻaki kiate kinaua ʻa e ngaahi meʻa lahi ʻa ia kuo ʻikai ke tohi, kae ʻumaʻā mo e ngaahi meʻa lahi foki ʻa ia kuo tohi.

  14  Pea naʻá na manatuʻi ʻa ʻene ngaahi leá; pea ko ia naʻá na ʻalu atu, ʻo na tauhi ʻa e ngaahi fekau ʻa e ʻOtuá, ke na akonaki ʻaki ʻa e folofola ʻa e ʻOtuá ʻi he kakai kotoa pē ʻo Nīfaí, ʻo kamata ʻi he kolo ko Mahú;

  15  Pea fai atu mei ai ki he kolo ko Kití; pea mei he kolo ko Kití ki he kolo ko Mūlekí;

  22  Pea hili ʻa e hono lī kinaua ki he fale fakapōpulá ʻi ha ngaahi ʻaho lahi taʻe-ha-meʻakai, vakai, naʻa nau ʻalu atu ki he fale fakapōpulá ke ʻave ʻa kinaua ke tāmateʻi.

  23  Pea naʻe hoko ʻo pehē naʻe takatakai ʻia Nīfai mo Līhai ʻa e meʻa naʻe hangē ko e aafí, ʻio ʻo ʻikai ai te nau loto-toʻa ke puke ʻa kinaua ʻaki honau nimá ʻi heʻenau manavahē telia naʻa nau vela. Ka neongo iá, naʻe ʻikai ke vela ʻa Nīfai mo Līhai; pea naʻe hangē ʻokú na tuʻu ʻi he lotolotonga ʻo e afí kae ʻikai te na vela.

  24  Pea ʻi heʻena vakai ʻoku takatakai ʻiate kinaua ha apou afi, pea naʻe ʻikai te na vela aí, naʻe fakaʻau ʻo toʻa ai ʻa hona lotó.

  25  He naʻá na vakai ʻoku ilifia ʻa e kau Leimaná ke ala kiate kinaua ʻaki honau nimá; pea naʻa nau ilifia foki ke haʻu ʻo ofi kiate kinaua, ka nau tuʻu ʻo hangē kuo taaʻi ʻa kinautolu ʻo noa ʻi he ʻohovalé.

  26  Pea naʻe hoko ʻo pehē naʻe tuʻu atu ʻa Nīfai mo Līhai ʻo kamata ke lea kiate kinautolu, ʻo pehē: ʻOua ʻe manavahē, he vakai, ko e ʻOtuá kuó ne fakahā kiate kimoutolu ʻa e meʻa fakaofó ni, ʻa ia ʻoku fakahā ai kiate kimoutolu ʻoku ʻikai te mou lava ke ala ʻaki homou nimá kiate kimaua ke tāmateʻi ʻa kimaua.

  27  Pea vakai, ʻi he hili ʻena lea ʻaki ʻa e ngaahi lea ní, naʻe fuʻu ngalulululu lahi ʻa e kelekelé, pea naʻe ngalulululu mo e ngaahi holisi ʻo e fale fakapōpulá ʻo hangē ka holo ki he kelekelé; kae vakai, naʻe ʻikai holo ia.
