1 And when they were come to Ecbatane, they came to the house of Raguel, and Sara met them: and after they had saluted one another, she brought them into the house. 2 Then said Raguel to Edna his wife, How like is this young man to Tobit my cousin! 3 And Raguel asked them, From whence are ye, brethren? To whom they said, We are of the sons of Nephthalim, which are captives in Nineve. 4 Then he said to them, Do ye know Tobit our kinsman? And they said, We know him. Then said he, Is he in good health? 5 And they said, He is both alive, and in good health: and Tobias said, He is my father. 6 Then Raguel leaped up, and kissed him, and wept, 7 And blessed him, and said unto him, Thou art the son of an honest and good man. But when he had heard that Tobit was blind, he was sorrowful, and wept. 8 And likewise Edna his wife and Sara his daughter wept. Moreover they entertained them cheerfully; and after that they had killed a ram of the flock, they set store of meat on the table. Then said Tobias to Raphael, Brother Azarias, speak of those things of which thou didst talk in the way, and let this business be dispatched. 9 So he communicated the matter with Raguel: and Raguel said to Tobias, Eat and drink, and make merry: 10 For it is meet that thou shouldest marry my daughter: nevertheless I will declare unto thee the truth. 11 I have given my daughter in marriage to seven men, who died that night they came in unto her: nevertheless for the present be merry. But Tobias said, I will eat nothing here, till we agree and swear one to another. 12 Raguel said, Then take her from henceforth according to the manner, for thou art her cousin, and she is thine, and the merciful God give you good success in all things. 13 Then he called his daughter Sara, and she came to her father, and he took her by the hand, and gave her to be wife to Tobias, saying, Behold, take her after the law of Moses, and lead her away to thy father. And he blessed them; 14 And called Edna his wife, and took paper, and did write an instrument of covenants, and sealed it. 15 Then they began to eat. 16 After Raguel called his wife Edna, and said unto her, Sister, prepare another chamber, and bring her in thither. 17 Which when she had done as he had bidden her, she brought her thither: and she wept, and she received the tears of her daughter, and said unto her, 18 Be of good comfort, my daughter; the Lord of heaven and earth give thee joy for this thy sorrow: be of good comfort, my daughter. ΚΑΙ ἦλθον εἰς ᾿Εκβάτανα καὶ παρεγένοντο εἰς τὴν οἰκίαν Ῥαγουήλ, Σάρρα δὲ ὑπήντησεν αὐτοῖς καὶ ἐχαιρέτισεν αὐτοὺς καὶ αὐτοὶ αὐτήν, καὶ εἰσήγαγεν αὐτοὺς εἰς τὴν οἰκίαν. 2 καὶ εἶπε Ῥαγουὴλ ῎Εδνᾳ τῇ γυναικὶ αὐτοῦ· ὡς ὅμοιος ὁ νεανίσκος Τωβὶτ τῷ ἀνεψιῷ μου; 3 καὶ ἠρώτησεν αὐτούς Ῥαγουήλ· πόθεν ἐστέ, ἀδελφοί; καὶ εἶπαν αὐτῷ· ἐκ τῶν υἱῶν Νεφθαλὶμ τῶν αἰχμαλώτων ἐκ Νινευῆ. 4 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς· γινώσκετε Τωβὶτ τὸν ἀδελφὸν ἡμῶν; οἱ δὲ εἶπον· γινώσκομεν. καὶ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς· ὑγιαίνει; 5 οἱ δὲ εἶπαν· καὶ ζῇ καὶ ὑγιαίνει. καὶ εἶπε Τωβίας· πατήρ μού ἐστι. 6 καὶ ἀνεπήδησε Ῥαγουὴλ καὶ κατεφίλησεν αὐτὸν καὶ ἔκλαυσε 7 καὶ εὐλόγησεν αὐτὸν καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ· ὁ τοῦ καλοῦ καὶ ἀγαθοῦ ἀνθρώπου υἱός· καὶ ἀκούσας ὅτι Τωβὶτ ἀπώλεσε τοὺς ὀφθαλμοὺς ἑαυτοῦ, ἐλυπήθη καὶ ἔκλαυσε. 8 καὶ ῎Εδνα ἡ γυνὴ αὐτοῦ καὶ Σάρρα ἡ θυγάτηρ αὐτοῦ ἔκλαυσαν καὶ ὑπεδέξαντο αὐτοὺς προθύμως· 9 καὶ ἔθυσαν κριὸν προβάτων καὶ παρέθηκαν ὄψα πλείονα. εἶπε δὲ Τωβίας τῷ Ῥαφαήλ· ᾿Αζαρία ἀδελφέ, λάλησον ὑπὲρ ὧν ἔλεγες ἐν τῇ πορείᾳ, καὶ τελεσθήτω τὸ πρᾶγμα. 10 καὶ μετέδωκε τὸν λόγον τῷ Ῥαγουήλ· καὶ εἶπε Ῥαγουὴλ πρὸς Τωβίαν· φάγε, πίε καὶ ἡδέως γίνου, σοὶ γὰρ καθήκει τὸ παιδίον μου λαβεῖν· πλὴν ὑποδείξω σοι τὴν ἀλήθειαν. 11 ἔδωκα τὸ παιδίον μου ἑπτὰ ἀνδράσι, καὶ ὁπότε ἐὰν εἰσεπορεύοντο πρὸς αὐτήν, ἀπέθνησκον ὑπὸ τὴν νύκτα. ἀλλὰ τὸ νῦν ἔχον, ἡδέως γίνου. καὶ εἶπε Τωβίας· οὐ γεύομαι οὐδὲν ὧδε, ἕως ἂν στήσητε καὶ σταθῆτε πρός με. καὶ εἶπε Ῥαγουήλ· κομίζου αὐτὴν ἀπὸ τοῦ νῦν κατὰ τὴν κρίσιν· σὺ δέ ἀδελφὸς εἶ αὐτῆς, καὶ αὐτὴ σού ἐστιν· ὁ δὲ ἐλεήμων Θεὸς εὐοδώσει ὑμῖν τὰ κάλλιστα. 12 καὶ ἐκάλεσε Σάρραν τὴν θυγατέρα αὐτοῦ, καὶ λαβὼν τῆς χειρὸς αὐτῆς παρέδωκεν αὐτὴν Τωβία γυναῖκα καὶ εἶπεν· ἰδοὺ κατὰ τὸν νόμον Μωυσέως κομίζου αὐτὴν καὶ ἄπαγε πρὸς τὸν πατέρα σου· καὶ εὐλόγησεν αὐτούς. 13 καὶ ἐκάλεσεν ῎Εδναν τὴν γυναῖκα αὐτοῦ· καὶ λαβὼν βιβλίον ἔγραψε συγγραφήν, καὶ ἐσφραγίσατο. 14 καὶ ἤρξαντο ἐσθίειν. 15 καὶ ἐκάλεσε Ῥαγουὴλ ῎Εδναν τήν γυναῖκα αὐτοῦ καὶ εἶπε αὐτῇ· ἀδελφή, ἑτοίμασον τὸ ἕτερον ταμιεῖον καὶ εἰσάγαγε αὐτήν. 16 καὶ ἐποίησεν ὡς εἶπε καὶ εἰσήγαγεν αὐτὴν ἐκεῖ, καὶ ἔκλαυσε· καὶ ἀπεδέξατο τὰ δάκρυα τῆς θυγατρὸς αὐτῆς καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῇ· 17 θάρσει, τέκνον, ὁ Κύριος τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καὶ τῆς γῆς δῴη σοι χάριν ἀντὶ τῆς λύπης σου ταύτης· θάρσει, θύγατερ.
