Raphael wants Tobias to anoint the eyes of Tobit (Tob 11:7-11:8)

“Raphael said to Tobias, before he approached his father.

‘I know that his eyes will be opened.

Smear the gall of the fish on his eyes.

The medicine will make the white films shrink.

Then peel off the white films from his eyes.

You father will regain his sight.

He will see the light.’”

Raphael told Tobias to get the gall bladder of the fish ready so that they would open the eyes of his father. He wanted him to smear the fish gall on his eyes. Then the while film on his eyes would shrink and peel off. After that, his father would regain his sight and see again.
