1After these things Tobias went his way, praising God that he had given him a prosperous journey, and blessed Raguel and Edna his wife, and went on his way till they drew near unto Nineveh.
2Then Raphael said to Tobias, Dost thou not know, brother, how thou didst leave thy father?
3let us hasten before thy wife, and prepare the house;
4and take in thy hand the gall of the fish. So they went their way, and the dog went after them.
5Now Anna sat looking about toward the way for her son.
6And when she espied him coming, she said to his father, Behold, thy son cometh, and the man that went with him.
7Then said Raphael, I know, Tobias, that thy father will open his eyes.
8Therefore anoint thou his eyes with the gall, and being pricked therewith, he shall rub, and the whiteness shall fall away, and he shall see thee.
9Then Anna ran forth, and fell upon the neck of her son, and said unto him, Seeing I have seen thee, my son, from henceforth I am content to die. And they wept both.
10Tobit also went forth toward the door, and stumbled: but his son ran unto him,
11and took hold of his father: and he strake of the gall on his father’s eyes, saying, Be of good hope, my father.
12And when his eyes began to smart, he rubbed them;
13and the whiteness pilled away from the corners of his eyes: and when he saw his son, he fell upon his neck.
14And he wept, and said, Blessed art thou, O God, and blessed is thy name forever; and blessed are all thy holy angels:
15for thou hast scourged, and hast taken pity on me: for, behold, I see my son Tobias. And his son went in rejoicing, and told his father the great things that had happened to him in Media.
16Then Tobit went out to meet his daughter-in-law at the gate of Nineveh, rejoicing, and praising God: and they which saw him go marveled, because he had received his sight.
17But Tobit gave thanks before them, because God had mercy on him. And when he came near to Sarah his daughter-in-law, he blessed her, saying, Thou art welcome, daughter: God be blessed, which hath brought thee unto us, and blessed be thy father and thy mother. And there was joy among all his brethren which were at Nineveh.
18And Ahikar, and Nadab his brother’s son, came:

19and Tobias’ wedding was kept seven days with great joy.
