Tobit 5

Geneva(i) 1 Tobias then answered, and sayd, Father, I wil do all things which thou hast commanded me. 2 But howe can I receiue the siluer, seeing I know him not? 3 Then he gaue him the hand writing, & sayd vnto him, Seeke thee a man, which may goe with thee, whiles I yet liue, and I will giue him wages, & go and receiue the money. 4 Therfore when he was gone to seeke a man, he found Raphael the Angel. 5 But he knewe not, and sayd vnto him, May I goe with thee into the land of Media? and knowest thou those places well? 6 To whom the Angel said, I wil go with thee: for I haue remained with our brother Gabael. 7 Then Tobias sayd to him, Tarie for me, till I tell my father. 8 Then he sayde vnto him, Goe, and tarie not: so he went in and sayde to his father, Beholde, I haue founde one, which will goe with me. Then he sayde, Call him vnto me, that I may knowe of what tribe he is, and whether he be faithfull to goe with thee. 9 So he called him, and he came in, and they saluted one another. 10 Then Tobit sayde vnto him, Brother, shewe me of what tribe and familie thou art. 11 To whom he said, Doest thou seeke a stocke or familie, or an hired man to goe with thy sonne? Then Tobit sayd vnto him, I would know, brother, thy kindred and thy name. 12 Then he sayd, I am of the kinred of Azarias and Ananias the great, and of thy brethren. 13 Then Tobit sayde, Thou art welcome, brother: be not now angry with me, because I haue enquired to knowe thy kinred, & thy familie: for thou art my brother of an honest & good stocke: for I know Ananias & Ionathas, sonnes of that great Samaias: for we went together to Ierusalem to worship, & offred the first borne, & the tenthes of the fruites, & they were not deceiued with the error of our brethren my brother, thou art of a great stocke. 14 But tel me, What wages shal I giue thee? wilt thou a groate a day and things necessarie, as to mine owne sonne? 15 Yea, moreouer if ye returne safe, I will adde some thing to the wages. 16 So they agreed. Then said he to Tobias, Prepare thy selfe for the iourney, and goe you on Gods Name; when his sonne had prepared all things for the iourney, his father sayde, Goe thou with this man, and God which dwelleth in heauen, prosper your iourney, & the Angel of God keepe you companie. So they went forth both and departed, & the dogge of the yong man with them. 17 But Anna his mother wept, & sayd to Tobit, Why hast thou sent away our sonne? is he not the staffe of our hand to minister vnto vs? 18 Woulde to God wee had not layde money vpon money, but that it had bene cast away in respect of our sonne. 19 For that which God hath giuen vs to liue with, doeth suffice vs. 20 Then said Tobit, Be not carefull, my sister: he shal returne in safetie, and thine eyes shal see him. 21 For the good Angel doeth keepe him company, and his iourney shalbe prosperous, and he shal returne safe. 22 Then she made an ende of weeping.
