Tobit 1:16-18 Common English Bible (CEB)

Tobit is harassed for his pious acts

16 During the time of Shalmaneser, I gave away a lot of money to my relatives, my fellow Jews. 17 I gave a portion of my food to the hungry and clothes to the naked. Whenever I saw that the corpse of anyone from my nation had been flung outside the wall of Nineveh, I buried it.

18 I also buried anyone whom Sennacherib murdered after fleeing home from Judea, at the time when the king of heaven had punished him for all his insulting actions. In his rage Sennacherib killed many Israelites. However, I would take their bodies and bury them secretly. Sennacherib looked for them, but he didn’t find them.
