Tobit praises God for healing his eyes (Tob 11:14-11:15)

“Then Tobit said.

‘Blessed be God!

Blessed be his great name!

Blessed be all his holy angels!

Blessed be his holy name

Throughout all the ages.

Though he afflicted me,

He had had mercy upon me.

Now I see my son Tobias!’”

Tobit went rejoicing, and praising God at the top of his voice.

Tobit said that God and his name should be blessed. He also wanted to bless all his holy angels. His name should be blessed through all ages. God afflicted Tobit, but he had mercy on him so that now he can see his son Tobias. Thus like Job, he praised God despite all the personal problems he had. He went rejoicing and praising God at the top of his voice.
