Chapter 3

1

  Aue te mate mo tenei e whakakeke nei, kua poke nei, mo te pa tukino! 


2

 Kihai ia i whakarongo ki te reo, kihai i pai ki te ako; kihai i whakawhirinaki ki a Ihowa, kihai i whakatata ki tona Atua. 


3

 He raiona e hamama ana ona rangatira i roto i a ia, he wuruhi i te ahiahi ona kaiwhakarite, kahore a ratou toenga mo te ata. 


4

 Ko ona poropiti, he wairangi, he hunga tinihanga: kua whakapokea te wahi tapu e ona tohunga, kua tukinotia e ratou te ture. 


5

 He tika a Ihowa i roto i a ia; kahore ana mahi he: i tenei ata, i tenei ata, e puta ana tana whakawakanga ki te marama, e kore tana e ngaro atu; na, ko te kaimahi i te he, e kore ia e mohio ki te whakama. 


6

 Kua oti nga iwi te hatepe atu e ahau; tu kau ana o ratou taumaihi; kua ururua i ahau o ratou ara, kahore e haerea: kua ngaro o ratou pa, kahore he tangata, kahore he kainoho. 


7

 I ki ahau, He pono ka wehi koe i ahau, ka pai ki te ako; penei kihai i hatepea atu tona nohoanga, kihai i pera me aku whiunga katoa i a ia: heoi moata tonu to ratou maranga, he iho a ratou mahi katoa. 


8

  Mo reira tatari mai ki ahau, e ai ta Ihowa, ki te ra e whakatika ai ahau ki te taonga parakete: ko taku tikanga hoki tenei, kia huihuia mai nga tauiwi, kia tawhiua mai nga kingitanga, kia ringihia ki runga ki a ratou toku riri, toku aritarita kat oa, mura tonu: ka pau hoki te whenua katoa i te ahi, ara i toku hae. 


9

 Ka puta he hoki i ahau i reira he reo tino tika mo nga iwi, e karanga ai ratou katoa ki te ingoa o Ihowa, e kotahi tonu ai te whakaaro e mahi ai ki a ia. 


10

 Ka kawea mai he whakahere ki ahau e te hunga e inoi ana ki ahau, ara e te tamahine a aku whati, i tera taha o nga awa o Etiopia. 


11

 I taua ra e kore koe e whakama ki tetahi o au mahi, o ou he ki ahau: no te mea ka tangohia atu e ahau i roto i a koe te hunga e whakamanamana ana, e whakapehapeha ana, e kore ano koe e whakakake a muri ake nei i runga i toku maunga tapu. 


12

 Ka whakatoea ano e ahau etahi i roto i a koe, he ware, he rawakore, a ka whakawhirinaki ratou ki te ingoa o Ihowa. 


13

 E kore nga toenga o Iharaira e mahi he, e korero teka ranei; e kore ano e kitea he arero teka i roto i o ratou mangai; ka kai hoki ratou, ka takoto, te ai he kaiwhakawehi. 


14

  Waiata, e te tamahine a Hiona; hamama, e Iharaira; whakapaua te ngakau ki te koa ki te whakamanamana, e te tamahine a Hiruharama. 


15

 Kua kore i a Ihowa nga whakawa mou, kua peia e ia tou hoariri; kei roto i a koe te kingi o Iharaira, ara a Ihowa; e kore koe e kite i te kino a muri ake nei. 


16

 Ko te korero tenei ki Hiruharama i taua ra, Kaua e wehi; e Hiona, kei ruha ou ringa. 


17

 Kei roto a Ihowa, tou Atua, i a koe, a he nui ia, mana e whakaora; ka koa ia, ka hari ki a koe; ka ata noho ia i runga i tona aroha, ka whakamanamana ia, ka waiata ki a koe. 


18

 Ka whakaminea e ahau te hunga e pouri ana ki te huihuinga nui, era i roto i a koe, era e mau na tona ingoa kino ki a ratou. 


19

 Nana, i taua wa, ka mahi ahau ki te hunga katoa e whakatupu kino ana i a koe: ka whakaora i te wahine e totitoti ana; ka kohikohi i te mea i peia atu, a hei whakamoemititanga ratou, hei ingoa i nga whenua katoa i whakama ai ratou. 


20

 I taua wa ka kawea mai koutou e ahau, a i taua wa ka whakaminea mai koutou e ahau: a hei ingoa koutou, hei whakamoemititanga i roto i nga iwi katoa o te whenua, ina whakahokia koutou e ahau i te whakarau me te titiro ano koutou, e ai ta Ihowa. 


Haggai 1
