Chapter 8

Verse 1611 King James Version Proposed Conservative Translation Analysis
1 And when they had supped, they brought Tobias in vnto her.
2 And as he went, he remembred the wordes of Raphael, and tooke the ashes of the perfumes, and put the heart, and the liuer of the fish thereupon, and made a smoke therewith.
3 The which smell, when the euill spirit had smelled, hee fled into the outmost parts of Egypt, and the Angel bound him.
4 And after that they were both shut in together, Tobias rose out of the bed and said, Sister, arise, and let vs pray, that God would haue pitie on vs.
5 Then began Tobias to say, Blessed art thou, O God of our fathers, and blessed is thy holy and glorious Name for euer, let the heauens blesse thee, and all thy creatures.
6 Thou madest Adam, and gauest him Eue his wife for an helper & stay: of them came mankind: thou hast said, It is not good that man should bee alone, let vs make vnto him an aide like to himselfe.
7 And now, O Lord, I take not this my sister for lust, but vprightly: therefore mercifully ordeine, that wee may become aged together.
8 And she said with him, Amen.
9 So they slept both that night, and Raguel arose, and went & made a graue
10 Saying, I feare lest he be dead.
11 But when Raguel was come into his house,
12 He said vnto his wife Edna, Send one of the maids, and let her see, whether he be aliue: if he be not, that we may bury him, and no man know it.
13 So the maid opened the doore and went in, and found them both asleepe,
14 And came forth, and told them, that he was aliue.
15 Then Raguel praised God, and said, O God, thou art worthy to be praised with all pure and holy praise: therefore let thy Saints praise thee with all thy creatures, and let all thine Angels and thine elect praise thee for euer.
16 Thou art to be praised, for thou hast made mee ioyfull, and that is not come to me, which I suspected: but thou hast dealt with vs according to thy great mercie.
17 Thou art to be praised, because thou hast had mercie of two, that were the onely begotten children of their fathers, grant them mercy, O Lord, and finish their life in health, with ioy and mercie.
18 Then Raguel bade his seruants to fill the graue.
19 And hee kept the wedding feast fourteene dayes.
20 For before the dayes of the mariage were finished, Raguel had said vnto him by an othe, that he should not depart, till the fourteene dayes of the mariage were expired,
21 And then he should take the halfe of his goods, and goe in safetie to his father, and should haue the rest when I and my wife be dead.

2 Brother Azarias, Take with thee a seruant, and two camels, and go to Rages of Media to Gabael, & bring me the money, & bring him to the wedding..

4 But my father counteth the dayes, and if I tarie long, he will be very sorie.

1 Nowe Tobit his father counted euery day, and when the dayes of the iourney were expired, and they came not:
2 Then Tobit said, Are they detained? or is Gabael dead? and there is no man to giue him the money?
3 Therefore he was very sory.
4 Then his wife said to him, My sonne is dead, seeing hee stayeth long, and she beganne to bewaile him, and said,
5 Now I care for nothing, my sonne, since I haue let thee goe, the light of mine eyes.
6 To whom Tobit said, Hold thy peace, take no care; for he is safe.
7 But she said, Hold thy peace, and deceiue me not: my sonne is dead, and she went out euery day into the way which they went, and did eate no meat on the day time, and ceased not whole nights, to bewaile her sonne Tobias, vntill the foureteene dayes of the wedding were expired, which Raguel had sworne, that he should spend there: Then Tobias said to Raguel, Let me goe, for my father, and my mother look no more to see me.
8 But his father in law said vnto him, Tary with me, and I will send to thy father, and they shall declare vnto him, how things goe with thee.
9 But Tobias said, No: but let me goe to my father.
10 Then Raguel arose and gaue him Sara his wife, and halfe his goods, seruants, & cattell, and money.
11 And hee blessed them, and sent them away, saying, The God of heauen giue you a prosperous iourney, my children.

1 After these things Tobias went his way, praising God that he had giuen him a prosperous iourney, and blessed Raguel, and Edna his wife, and went on his way till they drew neere vnto Nineue.
2 Then Raphael said to Tobias, Thou knowest brother, how thou didst 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 went after them.
5 Now Anna sate looking about towards the way for her sonne.
6 And when she espied him comming, she said to his father, Behold, thy sonne commeth, and the man that went with him.
7 Then said Raphael, I know, Tobias, that thy father will open his eyes.
8 Therefore annoint thou his eies with the gall, and being pricked therewith he shall rub, and the whitenesse shall fall away, and he shall see thee.
9 Then Anna ran forth, and fell vpon the necke of her sonne, and said 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 ran vnto him,
11 And tooke hold of his father, and he strake of the gall on his fathers eyes, saying, Be of good hope, my father.
12 And when his eyes beganne to smart, he rubbed them.
13 And the whitenesse pilled away from the corners of his eyes, and when he saw his sonne, he fell vpon his necke.
14 And he wept, and said, Blessed art thou, O God, and blessed is thy Name for euer, and blessed are all thine holy Angels:
15 For thou hast scourged, and hast taken pitie on me: for behold, I see my sonne Tobias. And his sonne went in reioycing, and told his father the great things that had happened to him in Media.
16 Then Tobit went out to meete his daughter in law at the gate of Niniue, reioycing and praysing God: and they which saw him goe, marueiled because he had receiued his sight.
17 But Tobit gaue thankes before them: because God had mercy on him. And when hee came neere to Sara his daughter in Law, hee blessed her, saying, Thou art welcome daughter: God be blessed which hath brought thee vnto vs, and blessed be thy father and thy mother; And there was ioy amongst all his brethren which were at Nineue.

Chapter 12

Verse 1611 King James Version Proposed Conservative Translation Analysis
1 Then Tobit called his son Tobias, and said vnto him, My sonne, see that the man haue his wages, which went with thee, and thou must giue him more.
2 And Tobias said vnto him, O father, it is no harme to me to giue him halfe of those things which I haue brought.
3 For he hath brought me againe to thee in safety, and made whole my wife, and brought mee the money, and likewise healed thee.
4 Then the old man said: It is due vnto him.
5 So he called the Angell, and he said vnto him, Take halfe of all that yee haue brought, and goe away in safety.
6 Then he tooke them both apart, and sayd vnto them, Blesse God, praise him, and magnifie him, and praise him for the things which he hath done vnto you in the sight of all that liue. It is good to praise God and exalt his name, & honorably to shew forth the works of God, therfore be not slacke to praise him.
7 It is good to keepe close the secret of a King, but it is honorable to reueale the works of God: do that which is good, and no euill shall touch you.
8 Praier is good with fasting, and almes and righteousnesse: a little with righteousnes is better then much with vnrighteousnesse: it is better to giue almes then to lay vp gold.
9 For almes doth deliuer from death, and shall purge away all sinne. Those that exercise almes, and righteousnesse, shall be filled with life.
10 But they that sinne are enemies to their owne life.
11 Surely I will keep close nothing from you. For I said, it was good to keepe close the secret of a King, but that it was honorable to reueale the works of God.
12 Now therefore, when thou didst pray, and Sara thy daughter in Law, I did bring the remembrance of your prayers before the holy one, and when thou didst bury the dead, I was with thee likewise.
13 And when thou didst not delay to rise vp, and leaue thy dinner to go and couer the dead, thy good deede was not hidde from me: but I was with thee.
14 And now God hath sent mee to heale thee, & Sara thy daughter in law.
15 I am Raphael one of the seuen holy Angels, which present the prayers of the Saints, and which go in and out before the glory of the Holy one.
16 Then they were both troubled, and fel vpon their faces: for they feared.
17 But he said vnto them, feare not, for it shall go well with you, praise God therefore.
18 For not of any fauour of mine, but by the will of our God I came, wherefore praise him for euer.
19 All these daies I did appeare vnto you, but I did neither eat nor drinke, but you did see a vision.
20 Now therefore giue God thanks: for I go vp to him þt sent me, but write all things which are done, in a booke.
21 And when they rose, they saw him no more.
22 Then they confessed the great and wonderfull workes of God, and how the Angel of the Lord had appeared vnto them.

Chapter 13

Verse 1611 King James Version Proposed Conservative Translation Analysis
1 Then Tobit wrote a prayer of reioycing, and said, Blessed be God that liueth for euer, and blessed be his kingdome:
2 For he doeth scourge, and hath mercy: hee leadeth downe to hell, and bringeth vp againe: neither is there any that can auoid his hand.
3 Confesse him before the Gentiles, ye children of Israel: for he hath scattered vs among them.
4 There declare his greatnesse, and extoll him before all the liuing, for he is our Lord, and he is the God our father for euer:
5 And he wil scourge vs for our iniquities, and will haue mercy againe, and will gather vs out of all nations, among whom he hath scattered vs.
6 If you turne to him with your whole heart, and with your whole minde, and deale vprightly before him, then will hee turne vnto you, and will not hide his face from you: Therefore see what he will doe with you, and confesse him with your whole mouth, and praise the Lord of might, and extoll the euerlasting King: in the land of my captiuitie doe I praise him, and declare his might and maiesty to a sinnefull nation: O yee sinners turne, and doe iustice before him: who can tell if he will accept you, and haue mercy on you?
7 I wil extoll my God, and my soule shal praise the King of heauen, and shal reioyce in his greatnesse.
8 Let all men speake, and let all praise him for his righteousnesse.
9 O Ierusalem the holy Citie, he will scourge thee for thy childrens workes, and will haue mercy againe on the sonnes of the righteous.
10 Giue praise to the Lord, for hee is good: and praise the euerlasting King, that his Tabernacle may bee builded in thee againe with ioy: and let him make ioyfull there in thee, those that are captiues, and loue in thee for euer those that are miserable.
11 Many nations shall come from farre to the Name of the Lord God, with gifts in their hands, euen giftes to the King of heauen: all generations shall praise thee with great ioy.
12 Cursed are all they which hate thee, and blessed shall all be, which loue thee for euer.
13 Reioyce & be glad for the children of the iust: for they shall be gathered together, & shall blesse the Lord of the iust.
14 O blessed are they which loue thee, for they shall reioyce in thy peace: blessed are they which haue been sorowfull for all thy scourges, for they shal reioyce for thee, when they haue seene all thy glory, and shalbe glad for euer.
15 Let my soule blesse God the great King.
16 For Ierusalem shall be built vp with Saphires, and Emerauds, and precious stone: thy walles and towres, and battlements with pure golde.
17 And the streets of Ierusalem shal be paued with Berill, and Carbuncle, and stones of Ophir.
18 And all her streets shall say, Halleluiah, and they shall praise him, saying, Blessed be God which hath extolled it for euer.

Chapter 14

Verse 1611 King James Version Proposed Conservative Translation Analysis
1 So Tobit made an ende of praising God.
2 And he was eight and fifty yeeres olde when hee lost his sight, which was restored to him after eight yeeres, and he gaue almes, and he increased in the feare of the Lord God, and praised him.
3 And when he was very aged, hee called his sonne, and the sixe sons of his sonne, and said to him, My sonne, take thy children; for behold, I am aged, and am ready to depart out of this life.
4 Goe into Media, my sonne, for I surely beleeue those things which Ionas the Prophet spake of Nineue, that it shall be ouerthrowen, and that for a time peace shal rather be in Media, and that our brethren shall lie scattered in the earth from that good land, and Ierusalem shall be desolate, and the house of God in it shalbe burned, and shall be desolate for a time:
5 And that againe God will haue mercie on them, and bring them againe into the land where they shall build a Temple, but not like to the first, vntill the time of that age be fulfilled, and afterward they shall returne from all places of their captiuitie, and build vp Ierusalem gloriously, and the house of God shall be built in it for euer, with a glorious building, as the prophets haue spoken thereof.
6 And all nations shall turne, and feare the Lord God truely, and shall burie their idoles.
7 So shall all nations praise the Lord, and his people shal confesse God, and the Lord shall exalt his people, and all those which loue the Lord God in trueth and iustice, shall reioyce, shewing mercie to our brethren.
8 And now, my sonne, depart out of Nineue, because that those things which the Prophet Ionas spake, shall surely come to passe.
9 But keepe thou the Law and the Commandements, and shew thy selfe mercifull and iust, that it may goe well with thee.
10 And burie me decently, and thy mother with me, but tarie no longer at Nineue. Remember, my sonne, how Aman handled Achiacharus þt brought him vp, how out of light he brought him into darkenes, and how he rewarded him againe: yet Ahiacharus was saued, but the other had his reward, for hee went downe into darkenesse. Manasses gaue almes, and escaped the snares of death which they had set for him: but Aman fell into the snare and perished.
11 Wherefore now, my sonne, consider what almes doeth, and how righteousnesse doth deliuer. When he had said these things, he gaue vp the ghost in the bed, being an hundred, and eight and fiftie yeeres old, and he buried him honourably.
12 And when Anna his mother was dead, he buried her with his father: but Tobias departed with his wife and children to Ecbatane, to Raguel his father in law:
13 Where hee became old with honour, and hee buried his father and mother in lawe honourably, and hee inherited their substance, and his father Tobits.
14 And he died at Ecbatane in Media, being an hundred and seuen and twentie yeeres old.
15 But before he died, he heard of the destruction of Nineue, which was taken by Nabuchodonosor & Assuerus: and before his death hee reioyced ouer Nineue.
