4Then his wife said to him, My son is dead, seeing he stays long; and she began to wail him, and said,
5Now I care for nothing, my son, since I have let you go, the light of mine eyes.
6To whom Tobit said, Hold your peace, take no care, for he is safe.
7But she said, Hold your peace, and deceive me not; my son is dead. And she went out every day into the way which they went, and did eat no meat on the daytime, and ceased not whole nights to bewail her son Tobias, until the fourteen days of the wedding were expired, which Raguel had sworn that he should spend there. Then Tobias said to Raguel,
8Let me go, for my father and my mother look no more to see me.
9But his father in law said to him, Tarry with me, and I will send to your father, and they shall declare to him how things go with you.
10But Tobias said, No; but let me go to my father.
11Then Raguel arose, and gave him Sara his wife, and half his goods, servants, and cattle, and money:
12And he blessed them, and sent them away, saying, The God of heaven give you a prosperous journey, my children.
13And he said to his daughter, Honor your father and your mother in law, which are now your parents, that I may hear good report of you. And he kissed her. Edna also said to Tobias, The Lord of heaven restore you, my dear brother, and grant that I may see your children of my daughter Sara before I die, that I may rejoice before the Lord: behold, I commit my daughter to you of special trust; where are do not entreat her evil.
