“Good and noble son of a father good and noble,
Upright and generous!
May the Lord grant the blessings of heaven to you!
May the Lord grant the blessings of heaven to your wife!
And to your wife’s father and mother!
Blessed be God!
I see in Tobias the very image of my cousin Tobit.”
This is the prayer or blessing of Gabael for Tobias. He called him the good and noble son of a good and noble father. They were both upright and generous. He wanted the Lord to grant the blessings of heaven to Tobias, his wife, and her parents. He blest God. Then he said that Tobias looked just like his father, Tobit, his cousin.
