Kei a Pablos te mahi a ngā ratonga utukore e taea ai te whai; pēnei i ngā rauemi, ngā awheawhe, ngā whakaaturanga pūkenga; te ako kanohi ki te kanohi, te whakawhitiwhiti whakaaro ā-rōpū, ngā haerenga, ngā hōtaka ā-hapori; ka mutu ko te haumanu toi hei rōpū, hei takirua rānei. Mahi ai ngā ringatoi ki ō rātou ake papamahi, ki tētāhi papamahi nui ā-iwi rānei. He tāngata mātau ā-wheako ngā ringatoi e kuhu ai ki Pablos mō te āta tiaki i te hauora hinengaro te take. He mahi takitahi, he mahi takitini rānei tā te ringatoi hei whai i ōna hua auaha. Ka mahi pērā ia, ka whakatautikaina e ia tōna ake mahi toi ki ngā awheawhe, ki ngā mahi ā-rōpū rānei.
