1 Now Tobit his father counted every day: and when the days of the journey were expired, and they came not, 2 Then Tobit said, Are they detained? or is Gabael dead, and there is no man to give him the money? 3 Therefore he was very sorry. 4 Then his wife said unto him, My son is dead, seeing he stayeth long; and she began to wail him, and said, 5 Now I care for nothing, my son, since I have let thee go, the light of mine eyes. 6 To whom Tobit said, Hold thy peace, take no care, for he is safe. 7 But she said, Hold thy peace, and deceive me not; my son is dead. And she went out every day into the way which they went, and did eat no meat on the daytime, and ceased not whole nights to bewail her son Tobias, until the fourteen days of the wedding were expired, which Raguel had sworn that he should spend there. Then Tobias said to Raguel, 8 Let me go, for my father and my mother look no more to see me. 9 But his father in law said unto him, Tarry with me, and I will send to thy father, and they shall declare unto him how things go with thee. 10 But Tobias said, No; but let me go to my father. 11 Then Raguel arose, and gave him Sara his wife, and half his goods, servants, and cattle, and money: 12 And he blessed them, and sent them away, saying, The God of heaven give you a prosperous journey, my children. And he said to his daughter, Honour thy father and thy mother in law, which are now thy parents, that I may hear good report of thee. And he kissed her. Edna also said to Tobias, The Lord of heaven restore thee, my dear brother, and grant that I may see thy children of my daughter Sara before I die, that I may rejoice before the Lord: behold, I commit my daughter unto thee of special trust; where are do not entreat her evil. 13 After these things Tobias went his way, praising God that he had given him a prosperous journey, and blessed Raguel and Edna his wife. ΚΑΙ Τωβὶτ ὁ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ ἐλογίσατο ἑκάστης ἡμέρας· καὶ ὡς ἐπληρώθησαν αἱ ἡμέραι τῆς πορείας καὶ οὐκ ἤρχοντο, 2 εἶπε· μήποτε κατῄσχυνται; ἢ μήποτε ἀπέθανε Γαβαὴλ καὶ οὐδεὶς αὐτῷ δίδωσι τὸ ἀργύριον; 3 καὶ ἐλυπεῖτο λίαν. 4 εἶπε δὲ αὐτῷ ἡ γυνή· ἀπώλετο τὸ παιδίον, διότι κεχρόνικε· καὶ ἤρξατο θρηνεῖν αὐτὸν καὶ εἶπεν· 5 οὐ μέλοι μοι, τέκνον, ὅτι ἀφῆκά σε τὸ φῶς τῶν ὀφθαλμῶν μου; 6 καὶ Τωβὶτ λέγει αὐτῇ· σίγα, μὴ λόγον ἔχει, ὑγιαίνει. 7 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ· σίγα, μὴ πλάνα με, ἀπώλετο τὸ παιδίον μου. καὶ ἐπορεύετο καθ᾿ ἡμέραν εἰς τὴν ὁδὸν ἔξω, οἵας ἀπῆλθεν, ἡμέρας τε ἄρτον οὐκ ἤσθιε, τὰς δέ νύκτας οὐ διελίμπανε θρηνοῦσα Τωβίαν τὸν υἱὸν αὐτῆς, ἕως οὗ συνετελέσθησαν αἱ δεκατέσσαρες ἡμέραι τοῦ γάμου, ἃς ὤμοσε Ῥαγουὴλ ποιῆσαι αὐτὸν ἐκεῖ· εἶπε δὲ Τωβίας τῷ Ῥαγουήλ· ἐξαπόστειλόν με, ὅτι ὁ πατήρ μου καὶ ἡ μήτηρ μου οὐκέτι ἐλπίζουσιν ὄψεσθαί με. 8 εἶπε δὲ αὐτῷ ὁ πενθερός· μεῖνον παρ᾿ ἐμοί, κἀγὼ ἐξαποστελῶ πρὸς τὸν πατέρα σου καὶ δηλώσουσιν αὐτῷ τὰ κατὰ σέ. 9 καὶ Τωβίας λέγει· ἐξαπόστειλόν με πρὸς τὸν πατέρα μου. 10 ἀναστὰς δὲ Ῥαγουὴλ ἔδωκεν αὐτῷ Σάρραν τὴν γυναῖκα αὐτοῦ καὶ τὰ ἥμισυ τῶν ὑπαρχόντων, σώματα καὶ κτήνη καὶ ἀργύριον, 11 καὶ εὐλογήσας αὐτοὺς ἐξαπέστειλε λέγων· εὐοδώσει ὑμᾶς, τέκνα, ὁ Θεὸς τοῦ οὐρανοῦ πρὸ τοῦ με ἀποθανεῖν. 12 καὶ εἶπε τῇ θυγατρὶ αὐτοῦ· τίμα τοὺς πενθερούς σου, αὐτοὶ νῦν γονεῖς σού εἰσιν· ἀκούσαιμί σου ἀκοὴν καλήν, καὶ ἐφίλησεν αὐτήν. καὶ ῎Εδνα εἶπε πρὸς Τωβίαν· ἀδελφὲ ἀγαπητέ, ἀποκαταστήσαι σε ὁ Κύριος τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καὶ δῴη μοι ἰδεῖν σου παιδία ἐκ Σάρρας τῆς θυγατρός μου, ἵνα εὐφρανθῶ ἐνώπιον τοῦ Κυρίου· καὶ ἰδοὺ παρατίθεμαί σοι τὴν θυγατέρα μου ἐν παρακαταθήκῃ, μὴ λυπήσῃς αὐτήν. 13 μετὰ ταῦτα ἐπορεύετο καὶ Τωβίας εὐλογῶν τὸν Θεόν, ὅτι εὐώδωσε τὴν ὁδὸν αὐτοῦ, καὶ κατευλόγει Ῥαγουὴλ καὶ ῎Εδναν τὴν γυναῖκα αὐτοῦ.
