Tobit 11

Geneva(i) 1 After these thinges Tobias went his way, praysing God that hee had giuen him a prosperous iourney, and blessed Raguel and Edna his wife, and went on his way till he drewe neere to Nineue. 2 Then Raphael said to Tobias, Thou knowest, brother, howe thou diddest leaue thy father. 3 Let vs haste before thy wife, and prepare the house, 4 And take in thine hand the gall of the fish. So they went their way, and the dog followed them. 5 Nowe Anna sate in the way looking for her sonne, 6 Whom when she sawe comming, she sayd to his father, Behold, thy sonne cometh, and the man that went with him. 7 Then sayd Raphael, I knowe, Tobias, that thy father shall receiue his sight. 8 Therefore anoynt his eyes with the gall, and being pricked therewith, he shall rub and make the whitenesse to fall away, and shall see thee. 9 Then Anna ranne foorth, and fell on the necke of her sonne, and sayde vnto him, Seeing I haue seene thee, my sonne, from henceforth I am content to die, and they wept both. 10 Tobit also went forth toward the doore, and stumbled, but his sonne ranne vnto him. 11 And tooke hold of his father and sprinkled of the gall on his fathers eyes, saying, Bee of good hope, my father. 12 And when his eyes began to pricke, he rubbed them. 13 And the whitenes pilled away from the corners of his eyes, and when he sawe his sonne, he fell vpon his necke, 14 And hee wept and sayde, Blessed art thou, O Lorde, and blessed be thy Name for euer, and blessed be all thine holy Angels. 15 For thou hast scourged me, and hast had pitie on me: for beholde, I see my sonne Tobias: and his sonne, being glad went in, and tolde his father the great things that had come to passe in Media. 16 Then Tobit went out to meete his daughter in lawe, reioycing and praysing God to the gate of Nineue and they which saw him go, marueiled, because he had receiued his sight. 17 But Tobit testified before the al, that God had had pitie on him; when he came neere to Sarra his daughter in lawe, he blessed her, saying, Thou art welcome, daughter: God be blessed, which hath brought thee vnto vs, and blessed be thy father: and there was great ioy among all his brethren which were at Nineue. 18 And Achiacharus and Nasbas his brothers sonne came. 19 And Tobias marriage was kept seuen dayes with great ioy.
