“The two continued on their way together until they were near Media. Then the young man questioned the angel.
What medicinal value is there in the fish’s heart, liver and gall?’
‘As for the fish’s heart and liver,
You must burn them to make smoke
In the presence of a man or woman afflicted by a demon or evil spirit. Every affliction will flee away
And never remain with that person any longer.
As for the gall,
Anoint a person’s eyes where white films have appeared on them. Blow upon them,
Upon the white films,
And the eyes will be healed.’”
As they approached Media, Tobias asked the angel what kind of medicinal value was the fish’s heart, liver, and gall. He always called him Azariah. The angel explained that the heart and liver had to be burned to make smoke in the presence of anyone who was afflicted with an evil spirit or demon. Done properly, all the evil spirit afflictions will flee and never return. The fish gall, on the other hand, should be put on the eyes of a man who has white film on his eyes. This fish gall anointing would heal the eyes after you blow on it. Thus the fish parts are a key to this story as it unfolds.
