Tobit 2: 1 - 8
1 When I arrived home and my wife Anna and my son Tobias were restored to me, at the feast of Pentecost, which is the sacred festival of the seven weeks, a good dinner was prepared for me and I sat down to eat.
2 Upon seeing the abundance of food I said to my son, "Go and bring whatever poor man of our brethren you may find who is mindful of the Lord, and I will wait for you."
3 But he came back and said, "Father, one of our people has been strangled and thrown into the market place."
4 So before I tasted anything I sprang up and removed the body to a place of shelter until sunset.
5 And when I returned I washed myself and ate my food in sorrow.
6 Then I remembered the prophecy of Amos, how he said, "Your feasts shall be turned into mourning, and all your festivities into lamentation." And I wept.
7 When the sun had set I went and dug a grave and buried the body.
8 And my neighbors laughed at me and said, "He is no longer afraid that he will be put to death for doing this; he once ran away, and here he is burying the dead again!"
