Ko e fakahā naʻe fai mai ʻia Siosefa Sāmita ko e Palōfitá, lolotonga ha konifelenisi makehe ʻa e kaumātuʻa ʻo e Siasí, ʻa ia naʻe fai ʻi Hailame, ʻi ʻOhaiō, ʻi he ʻaho 1 Nōvemá 1831 (History of the Church [Hisitōlia ʻo e Siasí], 1:221–224). Naʻe lahi ha ngaahi fakahā kuo maʻu mei he ʻEikí ki muʻa ʻi he taimi ko ʻení; pea ko hono fakamāʻopoʻopo ʻo e ngaahi fakahā ko iá ke pulusi ʻi ha tohi ko e taha ia ʻo e ngaahi meʻa mahuʻinga taha naʻe tali ʻi he konifelenisí, ʻoku kau ʻi he vahe ko ʻení ʻa e Talamuʻaki ʻa e ʻEikí ki he ngaahi tokāteliné, ngaahi fuakavá, mo e ngaahi fekau kuo fai mai ʻi he kuonga ko ʻení.

1–7, Ko e leʻo ʻo e fakatokangá ʻoku fai ia ki he kakai kotoa pē; 8–16, ʻOku muʻomuʻa ʻa e Hē mei he Moʻoní mo e fai angahalá ʻi he Hāʻele ʻAnga Ua Maí; 17–23, ʻOku ui ʻa Siosefa Sāmita ke fakafoki mai ki he māmaní ʻa e ngaahi moʻoni mo e ngaahi mālohi ʻo e ʻEikí; 24–33, Ko hono ʻomi ʻo e Tohi ʻa Molomoná mo hono fokotuʻu ʻo e Siasi moʻoní; 34–36, ʻE ʻave ʻa e melinó mei he māmaní; 37–39, Fakatotolo ʻi he ngaahi fekau ko ʻení.

  TOKANGA mai, ʻa kimoutolu ʻa e kakai ʻo hoku asiasí, ʻoku folofola ʻe he leʻo ʻo ia ʻoku ʻafio ʻi ʻolungá, pea ʻoku ʻafio mai ʻa hono bfofongá ki he kakai kotoa pē; ʻio, ko e moʻoni ʻoku ou pehē: cTokanga mai ʻa kimoutolu ʻa e kakai mei he mamaʻó; pea mo kimoutolu ʻoku ʻi he ngaahi motu ʻo e tahí, mou fanongo fakataha.

  He ko e moʻoni, ʻoku fakaongo atu ʻa e aleʻo ʻo e ʻEikí ki he kakai kotoa pē, pea ʻoku bʻikai ha taha ʻe hao; pea ʻoku ʻikai ha mata ʻe taʻe-mamata, pe ha telinga ʻe taʻe-fanongo, pe cloto ʻe taʻe-mahuhuhuhu.

  Pea ʻe huhuhuhuʻi ʻa e kau aangatuʻú ʻaki ʻa e mamahi lahi; he ʻe blea ʻaki ʻenau ngaahi hiá ʻi he tumutumu ʻo e ngaahi falé, pea ʻe fakahā ʻa ʻenau ngaahi ngāue fufuú.

  Pea ʻe fai ʻa e alea ʻo e fakatokangá ki he kakai kotoa pē, ʻi he ngutu ʻo ʻeku kau ākonga, ʻa ia kuó u fili ʻi he ngaahi ʻaho bfakaʻosi ko ʻení.

  Pea te nau ʻalu atu pea ʻe ʻikai ha taha te ne taʻofi ʻa kinautolu, he ko au ko e ʻEikí naʻá ku fekauʻi ʻa kinautolu.

  Vakai, ko hoku mafaí ʻeni, mo e amafai ʻo ʻeku kau tamaioʻeikí, pea mo ʻeku talamuʻaki ki he tohi ʻo ʻeku ngaahi fekaú, ʻa ia kuó u ʻoange kiate kinautolu ke bpulusi ʻo ʻoatu kiate kimoutolu, ʻe kakai ʻo e māmaní.

  Ko ia, ke amanavahē pea tetetete, ʻa kimoutolu ʻa e kakaí, he ko au ko e ʻEikí ko e meʻa kuó u tuʻutuʻuni kiate kinautolú ʻe bfakahoko ia.

  Pea ko e moʻoni ʻoku ou pehē kiate kimoutolu, ko kinautolu ʻoku ʻalu atu, ʻo ʻave ʻa e ngaahi ongoongó ni ki he kakai ʻo e māmaní, ʻoku foaki kiate kinautolu ʻa e mālohi ke afakamaʻu ʻi he māmaní pea ʻi he langí fakatouʻosi, ʻa e kau taʻetuí mo e kau bangatuʻú;

  ʻIo, ko e moʻoni, ke fakamaʻu ʻa kinautolu ki he ʻaho ʻa ia ʻe lilingi hifo ai ʻa e ahouhau ʻo e ʻOtuá ki he kau bfai angahalá ʻo taʻe-fakangatangata—
