1 ὅτε δὲ συνετέλεσαν δειπνοῦντες εἰσήγαγον Τωβιαν πρὸς αὐτήν 2 ὁ δὲ πορευόμενος ἐμνήσθη τῶν λόγων Ραφαηλ καὶ ἔλαβεν τὴν τέφραν τῶν θυμιαμάτων καὶ ἐπέθηκεν τὴν καρδίαν τοῦ ἰχθύος καὶ τὸ ἧπαρ καὶ ἐκάπνισεν 3 ὅτε δὲ ὠσφράνθη τὸ δαιμόνιον τῆς ὀσμῆς ἔφυγεν εἰς τὰ ἀνώτατα Αἰγύπτου καὶ ἔδησεν αὐτὸ ὁ ἄγγελος 4 ὡς δὲ συνεκλείσθησαν ἀμφότεροι ἀνέστη Τωβιας ἀπὸ τῆς κλίνης καὶ εἶπεν ἀνάστηθι ἀδελφή καὶ προσευξώμεθα ἵνα ἡμᾶς ἐλεήσῃ ὁ κύριος 5 καὶ ἤρξατο Τωβιας λέγειν εὐλογητὸς εἶ ὁ θεὸς τῶν πατέρων ἡμῶν καὶ εὐλογητὸν τὸ ὄνομά σου τὸ ἅγιον καὶ ἔνδοξον εἰς τοὺς αἰῶνας εὐλογησάτωσάν σε οἱ οὐρανοὶ καὶ πᾶσαι αἱ κτίσεις σου 6 σὺ ἐποίησας Αδαμ καὶ ἔδωκας αὐτῷ βοηθὸν Ευαν στήριγμα τὴν γυναῖκα αὐτοῦ ἐκ τούτων ἐγενήθη τὸ ἀνθρώπων σπέρμα σὺ εἶπας οὐ καλὸν εἶναι τὸν ἄνθρωπον μόνον ποιήσωμεν αὐτῷ βοηθὸν ὅμοιον αὐτῷ 7 καὶ νῦν κύριε οὐ διὰ πορνείαν ἐγὼ λαμβάνω τὴν ἀδελφήν μου ταύτην ἀλ{L'} ἐ{P'} ἀληθείας ἐπίταξον ἐλεῆσαί με καὶ ταύτῃ συγκαταγηρᾶσαι 8 καὶ εἶπεν με{T'} αὐτοῦ αμην 9 καὶ ἐκοιμήθησαν ἀμφότεροι τὴν νύκτα 10 καὶ ἀναστὰς Ραγουηλ ἐπορεύθη καὶ ὤρυξεν τάφον λέγων μὴ καὶ οὗτος ἀποθάνῃ 1 When the feasting was over, bridegroom was led to bride-chamber. 2 And now, remembering what the angel had said, he took out from his wallet a piece of the fish’s liver, which he burnt on live coals. 3 With that, the evil spirit fled; it was overtaken by the angel Raphael in the waste lands of Upper Egypt, and there held prisoner. 4 Next, Tobias must plead with his bride; Leave thy bed, Sara; today, and to-morrow, and the day after, let us pray God for mercy. These three nights are set apart for our union with God; when the third is over, we will be joined in one, thou and I. 5 We come of holy lineage; not for us to mate blindly, like the heathen that have no knowledge of God. 6 Side by side they kept vigil, and prayed together that no plague should mar their mating. 7 Lord God of our fathers, Tobias said, praise be to thee from heaven and earth, from seas and fountains and rivers, and from all creatures of thine that make in these their homes! 8 When Adam was made of earth’s clay, it was by thy hand; when Eve was sent to cheer him, it was of thy gift. 9 Thou, Lord, art my witness that I wed this sister of mine not from love of dalliance; only in the dear hope of leaving a race behind me, a race in whose destiny, Lord, may thy name be ever blessed! 10 And thus Sara prayed, Have mercy on us, Lord, have mercy on us; safe from all harm grow we old together, he and I! 1 Postquam vero cœnaverunt, introduxerunt juvenem ad eam. 2 Recordatus itaque Tobias sermonum angeli, protulit de cassidili suo partem jecoris, posuitque eam super carbones vivos. 3 Tunc Raphaël angelus apprehendit dæmonium, et religavit illud in deserto superioris Ægypti. 4 Tunc hortatus est virginem Tobias, dixitque ei: Sara, exsurge, et deprecemur Deum hodie, et cras, et secundum cras: quia his tribus noctibus Deo jungimur; tertia autem transacta nocte, in nostro erimus conjugio. 5 Filii quippe sanctorum sumus, et non possumus ita conjungi sicut gentes quæ ignorant Deum. 6 Surgentes autem pariter, instanter orabant ambo simul, ut sanitas daretur eis. 7 Dixitque Tobias: Domine Deus patrum nostrorum, benedicant te cæli et terræ, mareque et fontes, et flumina, et omnes creaturæ tuæ quæ in eis sunt. 8 Tu fecisti Adam de limo terræ, dedistique ei adjutorium Hevam. 9 Et nunc Domine, tu scis quia non luxuriæ causa accipio sororem meam conjugem, sed sola posteritatis dilectione, in qua benedicatur nomen tuum in sæcula sæculorum. 10 Dixit quoque Sara: Miserere nobis Domine, miserere nobis, et consenescamus ambo pariter sani.
11 καὶ ἦλθεν Ραγουηλ εἰς τὴν οἰκίαν ἑαυτοῦ 12 καὶ εἶπεν Εδνα τῇ γυναικὶ αὐτοῦ ἀπόστειλον μίαν τῶν παιδισκῶν καὶ ἰδέτωσαν εἰ ζῇ εἰ δὲ μή ἵνα θάψωμεν αὐτὸν καὶ μηδεὶς γνῷ 13 καὶ εἰσῆλθεν ἡ παιδίσκη ἀνοίξασα τὴν θύραν καὶ εὗρεν τοὺς δύο καθεύδοντας 14 καὶ ἐξελθοῦσα ἀπήγγειλεν αὐτοῖς ὅτι ζῇ 15 καὶ εὐλόγησεν Ραγουηλ τὸν θεὸν λέγων εὐλογητὸς εἶ σύ ὁ θεός ἐν πάσῃ εὐλογίᾳ καθαρᾷ καὶ ἁγίᾳ καὶ εὐλογείτωσάν σε οἱ ἅγιοί σου καὶ πᾶσαι αἱ κτίσεις σου καὶ πάντες οἱ ἄγγελοί σου καὶ οἱ ἐκλεκτοί σου εὐλογείτωσάν σε εἰς πάντας τοὺς αἰῶνας 16 εὐλογητὸς εἶ ὅτι ηὔφρανάς με καὶ οὐκ ἐγένετό μοι καθὼς ὑπενόουν ἀλλὰ κατὰ τὸ πολὺ ἔλεός σου ἐποίησας με{Q'} ἡμῶν 17 εὐλογητὸς εἶ ὅτι ἠλέησας δύο μονογενεῖς ποίησον αὐτοῖς δέσποτα ἔλεος συντέλεσον τὴν ζωὴν αὐτῶν ἐν ὑγιείᾳ μετὰ εὐφροσύνης καὶ ἐλέους 18 ἐκέλευσεν δὲ τοῖς οἰκέταις χῶσαι τὸν τάφον 19 καὶ ἐποίησεν αὐτοῖς γάμον ἡμερῶν δέκα τεσσάρων 11 And now it was cock-crow, and Raguel had all his men out betimes to help him dig the grave; 12 Like enough, thought he, this one will have fared no better than the other seven that took her to wife. 13 Their digging done, he went back to his wife, and bade her 14 send one of her maids to find out if Tobias were dead; it were best to have him in his grave before the sun was up. 15 So the maid went on her errand, and ventured into the bride-chamber, where both lay asleep together, safe and sound. 16 When she returned with that good news, Raguel and Anna fell to praising the Lord; 17 God of Israel, said they, we thank thee that our fears were vain! 18 Great mercy hast thou shewn us, in ridding us of the fiend’s pursuit; 19 great mercy hast thou shewn on these two, Tobias’ only child and ours. Ever may their hearts, Lord, swell with thankfulness, ever may these lives thou hast preserved be a sacrifice of praise to thee, till all the Gentiles around them know thee for the only God that rules on earth! 11 Et factum est circa pullorum cantum, accersiri jussit Raguel servos suos, et abierunt cum eo pariter ut foderent sepulchrum. 12 Dicebat enim: Ne forte simili modo evenerit ei, quo et ceteris illis septem viris qui sunt ingressi ad eam. 13 Cumque parassent fossam, reversus Raguel ad uxorem suam, dixit ei: 14 Mitte unam de ancillis tuis, et videat si mortuus est, ut sepeliam eum antequam illucescat dies. 15 At illa misit unam ex ancillis suis. Quæ ingressa cubiculum, reperit eos salvos et incolumes, secum pariter dormientes. 16 Et reversa nuntiavit bonum nuntium: et benedixerunt Dominum, Raguel videlicet et Anna uxor ejus, 17 et dixerunt: Benedicimus te, Domine Deus Israël, quia non contigit quemadmodum putabamus. 18 Fecisti enim nobiscum misericordiam tuam, et exclusisti a nobis inimicum persequentem nos. 19 Misertus es autem duobus unicis. Fac eos, Domine, plenius benedicere te, et sacrificium tibi laudis tuæ et suæ sanitatis offerre, ut cognoscat universitas gentium quia tu es Deus solus in universa terra.
20 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ Ραγουηλ πρὶν ἢ συντελεσθῆναι τὰς ἡμέρας τοῦ γάμου ἐνόρκως μὴ ἐξελθεῖν αὐτόν ἐὰν μὴ πληρωθῶσιν αἱ δέκα τέσσαρες ἡμέραι τοῦ γάμου 21 καὶ τότε λαβόντα τὸ ἥμισυ τῶν ὑπαρχόντων αὐτοῦ πορεύεσθαι μετὰ ὑγιείας πρὸς τὸν πατέρα καὶ τὰ λοιπά ὅταν ἀποθάνω καὶ ἡ γυνή μου 22 23 24 20 With that, Raguel bade his men fill up the newly dug grave before sunrise; 21 bade his wife spread a feast, and prepare such food as the travellers needed. 22 Two fat heifers and four rams must be slaughtered and a banquet made for all his neighbours and friends. 23 And now he was urgent with Tobias to be his guest for two whole weeks; 24 half of all his goods he bestowed upon him there and then, while the rest, as he declared in writing, should follow when he and Anna died.[1] 20 Statimque præcepit servis suis Raguel ut replerent fossam quam fecerant priusquam elucesceret. 21 Uxori autem suæ dixit ut instrueret convivium, et præpararet omnia quæ in cibos erant iter agentibus necessaria. 22 Duas quoque pingues vaccas, et quatuor arietes, occidi fecit, et parari epulas omnibus vicinis suis, cunctisque amicis. 23 Et adjuravit Raguel Tobiam ut duas hebdomadas moraretur apud se. 24 De omnibus autem quæ possidebat Raguel, dimidiam partem dedit Tobiæ, et fecit scripturam, ut pars dimidia quæ supererat, post obitum eorum Tobiæ dominio deveniret.
