“So Tobias went in to tell his father Tobit.
‘I have just found a man who is one of our own Israelite kindred.’
‘Call the man in, my son,
So that I may learn about his family.
I want to know to what tribe he belongs.
I want to know whether he is trustworthy enough to go with you.’”
When Tobias met his father, he told him that he found a fellow Israelite. Then Tobit wanted him to bring him in. He wanted to know about his family, his tribe, and whether he was trustworthy. These seemed like legitimate questions.
