  Pea naʻe hoko ʻo pehē ʻi he ʻosi ange ʻa e taʻu ʻe ua naʻe haʻu ʻa ʻApinetai ʻi honau lotolotongá ʻi ha teunga fakapuli, pea naʻe ʻikai te nau ʻiloʻi ia, ʻo ne kamata ke kikite ʻiate kinautolu, ʻo pehē: Kuo fekau pehē mai kiate au ʻe he ʻEikí, ʻo pehē—ʻE ʻApinetai, ʻalu pea kikite ki hoku kakaí ni, ʻo pehē, he kuo nau fakafefeka honau lotó ki heʻeku ngaahi leá; kuo ʻikai te nau fakatomala mei heʻenau ngaahi ngāue koví; ko ia, te u aʻaʻahi kiate kinautolu ʻi hoku ʻitá, ʻio, ʻi hoku ʻita kakahá te u ʻaʻahi kiate kinautolu koeʻuhi ko ʻenau ngaahi angahalá mo e ngaahi meʻa fakalieliá.

  ʻIo, ʻe malaʻia ʻa e toʻu tangatá ni! Pea naʻe folofola mai ʻa e ʻEikí kiate au: Mafao atu ho nimá ʻo kikite ʻo pehē: ʻOku folofola peheni ʻe he ʻEikí, ʻe hoko ʻo pehē ʻe afakapōpulaʻi ʻa e toʻu tangatá ni, koeʻuhi ko ʻenau ngaahi angahalá, pea ʻe sipiʻi ʻa kinautolu ʻi he bkouʻahé; ʻio, pea ʻe angi fakamālohi ʻa kinautolu ʻe ha kau tangata, pea ʻe tāmateʻi ʻa kinautolu; pea ʻe hanga ʻe he fanga manupuna fekai ʻo e ʻataá, mo e fanga kulií, ʻio, pea mo e fanga manu fekaí ʻo keina ʻa honau kakanó.
