1 οἱ δὲ πορευόμενοι τὴν ὁδὸν ἦλθον ἑσπέρας ἐπὶ τὸν Τίγριν ποταμὸν καὶ ηὐλίζοντο ἐκεῖ 2 τὸ δὲ παιδάριον κατέβη περικλύσασθαι καὶ ἀνεπήδησεν ἰχθὺς ἀπὸ τοῦ ποταμοῦ καὶ ἐβουλήθη καταπιεῖν τὸ παιδάριον 3 ὁ δὲ ἄγγελος εἶπεν αὐτῷ ἐπιλαβοῦ τοῦ ἰχθύος καὶ ἐκράτησεν τὸν ἰχθὺν τὸ παιδάριον καὶ ἀνέβαλεν αὐτὸν ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν 4 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ ὁ ἄγγελος ἀνάτεμε τὸν ἰχθὺν καὶ λαβὼν τὴν καρδίαν καὶ τὸ ἧπαρ καὶ τὴν χολὴν θὲς ἀσφαλῶς 5 καὶ ἐποίησεν τὸ παιδάριον ὡς εἶπεν αὐτῷ ὁ ἄγγελος τὸν δὲ ἰχθὺν ὀπτήσαντες ἔφαγον 6 καὶ ὥδευον ἀμφότεροι ἕως ἤγγισαν ἐν Ἐκβατάνοις 1 Tobias, meanwhile, was on the march, with his dog at his heels; they did not make their first halt until they reached the river Tigris. 2 And when he went down to wash the dust from his feet, up came a monstrous fish as if it would have devoured him. 3 At this, he cried out in an extreme of fear, Help, sir; he means mischief. 4 But the angel bade him catch it by the gill and pull it towards him; so catch it he did, and brought it out on to the dry land, where it lay struggling at his feet. 5 This fish, the angel told him, is worth the bowelling; heart and gall and liver of it thou must keep by thee, sovereign remedies all. 6 This done, he roasted part of the meat, which they ate on their journey, and salted the rest, to serve them for provisions till they should reach Rages in Media. 1 Profectus est autem Tobias, et canis secutus est eum, et mansit prima mansione juxta fluvium Tigris. 2 Et exivit ut lavaret pedes suos, et ecce piscis immanis exivit ad devorandum eum. 3 Quem expavescens Tobias clamavit voce magna, dicens: Domine, invadit me. 4 Et dixit ei angelus: Apprehende branchiam ejus, et trahe eum ad te. Quod cum fecisset, attraxit eum in siccum, et palpitare cœpit ante pedes ejus. 5 Tunc dixit ei angelus: Exentera hunc piscem, et cor ejus, et fel, et jecur repone tibi: sunt enim hæc necessaria ad medicamenta utiliter. 6 Quod cum fecisset, assavit carnes ejus, et secum tulerunt in via: cetera salierunt, quæ sufficerent eis, quousque pervenirent in Rages civitatem Medorum.
7 καὶ εἶπεν τὸ παιδάριον τῷ ἀγγέλῳ Αζαρια ἄδελφε τί ἐστιν τὸ ἧπαρ καὶ ἡ καρδία καὶ ἡ χολὴ τοῦ ἰχθύος 8 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ ἡ καρδία καὶ τὸ ἧπαρ ἐάν τινα ὀχλῇ δαιμόνιον ἢ πνεῦμα πονηρόν ταῦτα δεῖ καπνίσαι ἐνώπιον ἀνθρώπου ἢ γυναικός καὶ οὐκέτι οὐ μὴ ὀχληθῇ 9 ἡ δὲ χολή ἐγχρῖσαι ἄνθρωπον ὃς ἔχει λευκώματα ἐν τοῖς ὀφθαλμοῖς καὶ ἰαθήσεται 10 ὡς δὲ προσήγγισαν τῇ Ραγη 11 εἶπεν ὁ ἄγγελος τῷ παιδαρίῳ ἄδελφε σήμερον αὐλισθησόμεθα παρὰ Ραγουηλ καὶ αὐτὸς συγγενής σού ἐστιν καὶ ἔστιν αὐτῷ θυγάτηρ μονογενὴς ὀνόματι Σαρρα 12 λαλήσω περὶ αὐτῆς τοῦ δοθῆναί σοι αὐτὴν εἰς γυναῖκα ὅτι σοὶ ἐπιβάλλει ἡ κληρονομία αὐτῆς καὶ σὺ μόνος εἶ ἐκ τοῦ γένους αὐτῆς καὶ τὸ κοράσιον καλὸν καὶ φρόνιμόν ἐστιν 13 καὶ νῦν ἄκουσόν μου καὶ λαλήσω τῷ πατρὶ αὐτῆς καὶ ὅταν ὑποστρέψωμεν ἐκ Ῥάγων ποιήσομεν τὸν γάμον διότι ἐπίσταμαι Ραγουηλ ὅτι οὐ μὴ δῷ αὐτὴν ἀνδρὶ ἑτέρῳ κατὰ τὸν νόμον Μωυσῆ ἢ ὀφειλέσει θάνατον ὅτι τὴν κληρονομίαν σοὶ καθήκει λαβεῖν ἢ πάντα ἄνθρωπον 7 And now Tobias had a question to ask of the angel; Tell me, good Azarias, said he, what healing virtue lies in those parts of the fish I must needs keep by me? 8 Its heart, answered he, has this virtue, that if a morsel of it be laid on the coals, the smoke will rid man or woman of the fiend’s harassing, and that for ever. 9 As for the gall, it is a sovereign salve for healing eyes that have a white film binding them.[1] 10 And for our journey, said Tobias, what is the next stage of that? 11 Our host’s name is Raguel, the angel told him, a tribesman and a kinsman of thy own. He has a daughter called Sara, and neither chick nor child besides. 12 Of all he possesses thou mayest be heir, if thou wilt claim his daughter’s hand in marriage; 13 thou hast but to ask him, and she is thine. 7 Tunc interrogavit Tobias angelum, et dixit ei: Obsecro te, Azaria frater, ut dicas mihi quod remedium habebunt ista, quæ de pisce servare jussisti? 8 Et respondens angelus, dixit ei: Cordis ejus particulam si super carbones ponas, fumus ejus extricat omne genus dæmoniorum sive a viro, sive a muliere, ita ut ultra non accedat ad eos. 9 Et fel valet ad ungendos oculos in quibus fuerit albugo, et sanabuntur. 10 Et dixit ei Tobias: Ubi vis ut maneamus? 11 Respondensque angelus, ait: Est hic Raguel nomine, vir propinquus de tribu tua, et hic habet filiam nomine Saram, sed neque masculum neque feminam ullam habet aliam præter eam. 12 Tibi debetur omnis substantia ejus, et oportet eam te accipere conjugem. 13 Pete ergo eam a patre ejus, et dabit tibi eam in uxorem.
14 τότε εἶπεν τὸ παιδάριον τῷ ἀγγέλῳ Αζαρια ἄδελφε ἀκήκοα ἐγὼ τὸ κοράσιον δεδόσθαι ἑπτὰ ἀνδράσιν καὶ πάντας ἐν τῷ νυμφῶνι ἀπολωλότας 15 καὶ νῦν ἐγὼ μόνος εἰμὶ τῷ πατρὶ καὶ φοβοῦμαι μὴ εἰσελθὼν ἀποθάνω καθὼς καὶ οἱ πρότεροι ὅτι δαιμόνιον φιλεῖ αὐτήν ὃ οὐκ ἀδικεῖ οὐδένα πλὴν τῶν προσαγόντων αὐτῇ καὶ νῦν ἐγὼ φοβοῦμαι μὴ ἀποθάνω καὶ κατάξω τὴν ζωὴν τοῦ πατρός μου καὶ τῆς μητρός μου με{T'} ὀδύνης ἐ{P'} ἐμοὶ εἰς τὸν τάφον αὐτῶν καὶ υἱὸς ἕτερος οὐχ ὑπάρχει αὐτοῖς ὃς θάψει αὐτούς 16 εἶπεν δὲ αὐτῷ ὁ ἄγγελος οὐ μέμνησαι τῶν λόγων ὧν ἐνετείλατό σοι ὁ πατήρ σου ὑπὲρ τοῦ λαβεῖν σε γυναῖκα ἐκ τοῦ γένους σου καὶ νῦν ἄκουσόν μου ἄδελφε διότι σοὶ ἔσται εἰς γυναῖκα καὶ τοῦ δαιμονίου μηδένα λόγον ἔχε ὅτι τὴν νύκτα ταύτην δοθήσεταί σοι αὕτη εἰς γυναῖκα 17 καὶ ἐὰν εἰσέλθῃς εἰς τὸν νυμφῶνα λήμψῃ τέφραν θυμιαμάτων καὶ ἐπιθήσεις ἀπὸ τῆς καρδίας καὶ τοῦ ἥπατος τοῦ ἰχθύος καὶ καπνίσεις καὶ ὀσφρανθήσεται τὸ δαιμόνιον καὶ φεύξεται καὶ οὐκ ἐπανελεύσεται τὸν αἰῶνα τοῦ αἰῶνος 18 ὅταν δὲ προσπορεύῃ αὐτῇ ἐγέρθητε ἀμφότεροι καὶ βοήσατε πρὸς τὸν ἐλεήμονα θεόν καὶ σώσει ὑμᾶς καὶ ἐλεήσει μὴ φοβοῦ ὅτι σοὶ αὐτὴ ἡτοιμασμένη ἦν ἀπὸ τοῦ αἰῶνος καὶ σὺ αὐτὴν σώσεις καὶ πορεύσεται μετὰ σοῦ καὶ ὑπολαμβάνω ὅτι σοὶ ἔσται ἐξ αὐτῆς παιδία 19 καὶ ὡς ἤκουσεν Τωβιας ταῦτα ἐφίλησεν αὐτήν καὶ ἡ ψυχὴ αὐτοῦ ἐκολλήθη αὐτῇ σφόδρα 20 21 22 14 I hear stories told of this maid, Tobias answered; how she has been betrothed seven times, and to every bridegroom it brought death; how it was a fiend, if the tale be true, that made away with them. 15 If the like befall me too, it would go hard with those parents of mine; I am all the children they have, they are old now, and this were to give them a cheerless passage to the grave. 16 Heed me well, answered Raphael, and thou shalt hear why the fiend has power to hurt some and not others. 17 The fiend has power over such as go about their marrying with all thought of God shut out of their hearts and minds, wholly intent on their lust, as if they were horse or mule, brutes without reason. 18 Not such be thy mating, when thou hast won thy bride. For three days deny thyself her favours, and the time you spend together, spend all in prayer. 19 The first night, burn the liver of yonder fish, and therewith the fiend shall be driven away. 20 On the second night, union thou shalt have, but with the company of the holy patriarchs.[2] 21 The third night, thy prayer shall win thee a blessing, of children safely born to thee and to her. 22 Then, when the third night is past, take the maid to thyself with the fear of the Lord upon thee, moved rather by the hope of begetting children than by any lust of thine. So, in the true line of Abraham, thou shalt have joy of thy fatherhood. 14 Tunc respondit Tobias, et dixit: Audio quia tradita est septem viris, et mortui sunt: sed et hoc audivi, quia dæmonium occidit illos. 15 Timeo ergo, ne forte et mihi hæc eveniant: et cum sim unicus parentibus meis, deponam senectutem illorum cum tristitia ad inferos. 16 Tunc angelus Raphaël dixit ei: Audi me, et ostendam tibi qui sunt, quibus prævalere potest dæmonium. 17 Hi namque qui conjugium ita suscipiunt, ut Deum a se et a sua mente excludant, et suæ libidini ita vacent sicut equus et mulus quibus non est intellectus: habet potestatem dæmonium super eos. 18 Tu autem cum acceperis eam, ingressus cubiculum, per tres dies continens esto ab ea, et nihil aliud nisi orationibus vacabis cum ea. 19 Ipsa autem nocte, incenso jecore piscis, fugabitur dæmonium. 20 Secunda vero nocte in copulatione sanctorum patriarcharum admitteris. 21 Tertia autem nocte, benedictionem consequeris, ut filii ex vobis procreentur incolumes. 22 Transacta autem tertia nocte, accipies virginem cum timore Domini, amore filiorum magis quam libidine ductus, ut in semine Abrahæ benedictionem in filiis consequaris.
