7  Dixit Tobias: Domine Deus patrum nostrorum, benedicant te caeli, et terra et mare et fontes, et omnia creatura, quae in eis sunt.

8  Tu fecisti Adam de limo terrae, dedistique adjutorium Evam.
9  Et nunc, Domine, tu scis, quia non luxuriae causa accipio uxorem, sed sola posteritatis dilectione, in qua benedicetur nomen tuum in saecula saeculorum.
10  Dixit itaque Sara: miserere nobis, Domine, et consenescamus ambo pariter sani

in timore tuo ut benedicetur nomen tuum in saecula saeculorum.

7  And Tobias said: Lord God of our father, may the heavens and the earth, and the sea, and the fountains, and the rivers, and all thy creatures that are in them, bless thee.
8  Thou madest Adam of the slime of the earth, and gavest him Eve for a helper.
9  And now, Lord, thou knowest, that not for fleshly lust do I take my sister to wife, but only for the love of posterity, in which thy name may be blessed for ever and ever.
10  Sara also said: Have mercy on us, O Lord, have mercy on us, and let us grow old both together in health

in thy fear that thy name may be blessed for ever and ever.
