Tobit 9Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition (RSVCE)

The Money Recovered

Then Tobi′as called Raph′ael and said to him, “Brother Azari′as, take a servant and two camels with you and go to Gab′ael at Rages in Media and get the money for me; and bring him to the wedding feast. For Rag′uel has sworn that I should not leave; but my father is counting the days, and if I delay long he will be greatly distressed.” So Raph′ael made the journey and stayed over night with Gab′ael. He gave him the receipt, and Gab′ael[a] brought out the money bags with their seals intact and gave them to him. In the morning they both got up early and came to the wedding feast. And Gab′ael blessed Tobi′as and his wife.[b][c]

  3. 9.6 Instead of this sentence, Vulgate reads (verses 8-12): “And when he was come into Raguel’s house he found Tobias sitting at the table: and he leaped up, and they kissed each other: and Gabelus wept, and blessed God, and said: The God of Israel bless thee, because thou art the son of a very good and just man, and that feareth God, and doth almsdeeds: 10 and may a blessing come upon thy wife and upon your parents: 11 and may you see your children, and your children’s children, unto the third and fourth generation: and may your seed be blessed by the God of Israel, who reigneth for ever and ever. 12 And when all had said, Amen, they went to the feast: but the marriage feast they celebrated also with the fear of the Lord.
