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.
