Te vaatia nei, ko Tearakura ne aru o nouua. Ko ia ne karanga atu ki a Pu Tepuko, ko ia ka aru o nouua.

Pu Tepuko ne karanga atu ke aua nouua.

A ko ia e piipia ke pakamate paia ko ia e pakamaa i a Pu Parekope, ko na pungona, paia ko Nau Parekope ne taa mate e Tearakura.

Ko Pu Tepuko kairo piipia ki a Tearakura ke pakamate. Ko Tearakura ne karanga atu, ko ia ka pakamate. Pu Tepuko ne karanga atu, "E rerei."

Ko Tearakura ne karanga atu ki a Pu Tepuko, ko ia ka pakamate; ko Pu Tepuko ke nopo i te noporanga ariki. Ko Pu Tepuko ne karanga atu, "Kairo. Ko te noporanga o Kavataorua."

At this time, Tearakura went to hang himself He told Pu Tepuko that he would go to hang himself.

Pu Tepuko told him not to hang himself.

He wanted to kill himself because he was ashamed before Pu Parekope, his son- in-law, because Nau Parekope was killed by Tearakura. 1

Pu Tepuko did not want Tearakura to commit suicide. Tearakura said to him that he would kill himself Pu Tepuko said to him, "All right."

Tearakura said to Pu Tepuko, when he killed himself, that Pu Tepuko should occupy the chiefly throne. Pu Tepuko said to him, "No. It is Kavataorua's throne."
