Chapter 9

1

 

 Then Tobias called the angel to him, whom he took to be a man, and said to him: Brother Azarias, I pray thee hearken to my words: 

 

 


2

 

 If I should give myself to be thy servant I should not make a worthy return for thy care. 

 

 


3

 

 However, I beseech thee, to take with thee beasts and servants, and to go to Gabelus to Rages the city of the Medes: and to restore to him his note of hand, and receive of him the money, and desire him to come to my wedding. 

 

 


4

 

 For thou knowest that my father numbereth the days: and if I stay one day more, his soul will be afflicted. 

 

 


5

 

 And indeed thou seest how Raguel hath adjured me, whose adjuring I cannot despise. 

 

 


6

 

 Then Raphael took four of Raguel's servants, and two camels, and went to Rages the city of the Medes: and finding Gabelus, gave him his note of hand, and received of him all the money. 

 

 


7

 

 And he told him concerning Tobias the son of Tobias, all that had been done: and made him come with him to the wedding. 

 

 


8

 

 And when he was come into Raguel's house he found Tobias sitting at the table: and he leaped up, and they kissed each other: and Gabelus wept, and blessed God, 

 

 


9

 

 And said: The God of Israel bless thee, because thou art the son of a very good and just man, and that feareth God, and doth almsdeeds: 

 

 


10

 

 And may a blessing come upon thy wife and upon your parents. 

 

 


11

 

 And may you see your children, and your children's children, unto the third and fourth generation: and may your seed be blessed by the God of Israel, who reigneth for ever and ever. 

 

 


12

 

 And when all had said, Amen, they went to the feast: but the marriage feast they celebrated also with the fear of the Lord.
