Babel

The Tower of Babel (Genesis 11: 1-9)

ko e vagahau Niuē (Niuean)

Ko e fakatuaga a Papelu

  1. Ne taha maka e vagahau, ti taha ni e kupu he lalolagi oti.
  2. Kua hoko foki he o mai a lautolu he fahi uta, ti moua ai e lautolu e kelekele tatai ke he motu ko Sinara, ti nonofo ai a lautolu.
  3. Ti fevagavagahauaki na lautolu ko e taha ke he taha, Hau ā ke eke e tautolu e tau maka kelekele, ti tunu fakalahi ke he afi. Ti eke e tau maka kelekele mo maka ha lautolu, mo e hemeri foki kua eke mo puga ha lautolu.
  4. Ti pehe age a lautolu, O mai ā, kia ati e tautolu taha maga, mo e taha kolo, kia hoko hana tapunu ke he lagi; kia eke e tautolu e mena ke talahaua ai a tautolu, neke mavehevehe fano a tautolu ke he lalolagi oti kana.
  5. Ti haele hifo a Iehova ke kitekite ke he maga, mo e kolo, kua ati he tau tagata.
  6. Ti pehe a Iehova, Kitiala, taha ni e motu, ti taha e vagahau ia lautolu oti; kua kamata foki a lautolu ke eke e mena nai, ko e hanai, nakai tuai maeke ke taofi a lautolu ke he taha mena taha kua manatu a lautolu ke eke.
  7. O mai a, kia o hifo a tautolu mo e fakakehekehe ha lautolu a vagahau kia nakai tuai logona he taha tagata e vagahau te taha tagata.
  8. Ti fakamavehevehe e Iehova a lautolu he mena ia ke he lalolagi oti; ati toka ai e lautolu e maga nakai ati.
  9. Ko e mena ia ne ui ai hana higoa ko Papelu, ha ko e mena ia ne fakakehekehe ai e Iehova e vagahau he lalolagi oti; ko e mena foki ia ne fakamavehevehe ai e Iehova a lautolu ke he lalolagi oti.
