1 And went on his way till they drew near unto Nineve. Then Raphael said to Tobias, Thou knowest, brother, how thou didst leave thy father: 2 Let us haste before thy wife, and prepare the house. 3 And take in thine hand the gall of the fish. So they went their way, and the dog went after them. 4 Now Anna sat looking about toward the way for her son. 5 And when she espied him coming, she said to his father, Behold, thy son cometh, and the man that went with him.
6 Then said Raphael, I know, Tobias, that thy father will open his eyes. 7 Therefore anoint thou his eyes with the gall, and being pricked therewith, he shall rub, and the whiteness shall fall away, and he shall see thee.
8 Then Anna ran forth, and fell upon the neck of her son, and said unto him, Seeing I have seen thee, my son, from henceforth I am content to die. And they wept both. 9 Tobit also went forth toward the door, and stumbled: but his son ran unto him, 10 And took hold of his father: and he strake of the gall on his fathers’ eyes, saying, Be of good hope, my father. 11 And when his eyes began to smart, he rubbed them; 12 And the whiteness pilled away from the corners of his eyes: and when he saw his son, he fell upon his neck.
13 And he wept, and said, Blessed art thou, O God, and blessed is thy name for ever; and blessed are all thine holy angels: 14 For thou hast scourged, and hast taken pity on me: for, behold, I see my son Tobias. And his son went in rejoicing, and told his father the great things that had happened to him in Media.
15 Then Tobit went out to meet his daughter in law at the gate of Nineve, rejoicing and praising God: and they which saw him go marvelled, because he had received his sight. 16 But Tobias gave thanks before them, because God had mercy on him. And when he came near to Sara his daughter in law, he blessed her, saying, Thou art welcome, daughter: God be blessed, which hath brought thee unto us, and blessed be thy father and thy mother. And there was joy among all his brethren which were at Nineve. 17 And Achiacharus, and Nasbas his brother’s son, came: 18 And Tobias’ wedding was kept seven days with great joy.
ΚΑΙ ἐπορεύετο μέχρις οὗ ἐγγίσαι αὐτοὺς εἰς Νινευῆ. καὶ εἶπε Ραφαὴλ πρὸς Τωβίαν· οὐ γινώσκεις, ἀδελφέ, πῶς ἀφῆκας τὸν πατέρα σου; 2 προδράμωμεν ἔμπροσθεν τῆς γυναικός σου καὶ ἑτοιμάσωμεν τὴν οἰκίαν· 3 λαβὲ δὲ παρὰ χεῖρα τὴν χολὴν τοῦ ἰχθῦος. καὶ ἐπορεύθησαν, καὶ συνῆλθεν ὁ κύων ὄπισθεν αὐτῶν. 4 καὶ ῎Αννα ἐκάθητο περιβλεπομένη εἰς τὴν ὁδὸν τὸν παῖδα αὐτῆς· 5 καὶ προσενόησεν αὐτὸν ἐρχόμενον καὶ εἶπε τῷ πατρὶ αὐτοῦ· ἰδοὺ ὁ υἱός μου ἔρχεται καὶ ὁ ἄνθρωπος ὁ πορευθεὶς μετ᾿ αὐτοῦ. 6 καὶ Ραφαὴλ εἶπεν· ἐπίσταμαι ἐγὼ ὅτι ἀνοίξει τοὺς ὀφθαλμοὺς ὁ πατήρ σου. 7 σὺ ἔγχρισον τὴν χολὴν εἰς τοὺς ὀφθαλμοὺς αὐτοῦ, καὶ δηχθεὶς διατρίψει καὶ ἀποβαλεῖται τὰ λευκώματα καὶ ὄψεταί σε. 8 καὶ προσδραμοῦσα ῎Αννα ἐπέπεσεν ἐπὶ τὸν τράχηλον τοῦ υἱοῦ αὐτῆς καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ· εἶδόν σε, παιδίον, ἀπὸ τοῦ νῦν ἀποθανοῦμαι καὶ ἔκλαυσαν ἀμφότεροι. 9 καὶ Τωβὶτ ἐξήρχετο πρὸς τὴν θύραν καὶ προσέκοπτεν, ὁ δὲ υἱὸς αὐτοῦ προσέδραμεν αὐτῷ 10 καὶ ἐπελάβετο τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ καὶ προσέπασε τὴν χολὴν ἐπὶ τοὺς ὀφθαλμοὺς τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ λέγων· θάρσει, πάτερ. 11 ὡς δὲ συνεδήχθησαν, διέτριψε τοὺς ὀφθαλμοὺς αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἐλεπίσθη ἀπὸ τῶν κάνθων τῶν ὀφθαλμῶν αὐτοῦ τὰ λευκώματα. 12 καὶ ἰδὼν τὸν υἱὸν αὐτοῦ ἐπέπεσεν ἐπὶ τὸν τράχηλον αὐτοῦ 13 καὶ ἔκλαυσε καὶ εἶπεν· εὐλογητὸς εἶ, ὁ Θεός, καὶ εὐλογητὸν τὸ ὄνομά σου εἰς τοὺς αἰῶνας, καὶ εὐλογημένοι πάντες οἱ ἅγιοί σου ἄγγελοι· ὅτι ἐμαστίγωσας καὶ ἠλέησάς με, ἰδοὺ βλέπω Τωβίαν τὸν υἱόν μου. 14 καὶ εἰσῆλθεν ὁ υἱὸς αὐτοῦ χαίρων καὶ ἀπήγγειλε τῷ πατρὶ αὐτοῦ τὰ μεγαλεῖα τὰ γενόμενα αὐτῷ ἐν τῇ Μηδίᾳ. 15 καὶ ἐξῆλθε Τωβὶτ εἰς συνάντησιν τῇ νύμφῃ αὐτοῦ χαίρων καὶ εὐλογῶν τὸν Θεὸν πρὸς τῇ πύλῃ Νινευῆ· καὶ ἐθαύμαζον οἱ θεωροῦντες αὐτὸν πορευόμενον, ὅτι ἔβλεψε. 16 καὶ Τωβὶτ ἐξωμολογεῖτο ἐνώπιον αὐτοῦ, ὅτι ἠλέησεν αὐτοὺς ὁ Θεός· καὶ ὡς ἤγγισε Τωβὶτ Σάρρᾳ τῇ νύμφῃ αὐτοῦ, κατευλόγησεν αὐτὴν λέγων· ἔλθοις ὑγιαίνουσα, θύγατερ· εὐλογητὸς ὁ Θεός, ὃς ἤγαγέ σε πρὸς ἡμᾶς, καὶ ὁ πατήρ σου καὶ ἡ μήτηρ σου. καὶ ἐγένετο χαρὰ πᾶσι τοῖς ἐν Νινευῆ ἀδελφοῖς αὐτοῦ. 17 καὶ παρεγένετο ᾿Αχιάχαρος καὶ Νασβὰς ὁ ἐξάδελφος αὐτοῦ, 18 καὶ ἤχθη ὁ γάμος Τωβία μετ᾿ εὐφροσύνης ἡμέρας ἑπτά.
