But after that he was gone out, he came again, and said unto him, that one of the children of Israel had been slain, and was lying in the market-place. Then straightway he started up, and left his dinner, and went fasting unto the dead body, and took it up, and carried it to his own house secretly, that he might bury it cautiously after the goingdown of the sun. (Second Lesson of Monday.) But all his neighbours chided him, and said : Already thou hast been condemned to death for this matter, and hardly didst thou escape from the power of the grave : and dost thou bury the dead again ? But Tobias feared God more than the King, and took away the bodies of them that were slain, and hid them in his house, and buried them in the midst of the night. So it came to pass that on a certain day he returned weary from the burial, and came into his own house, and lay down by the wall and slept, and as he was asleep there fell upon his eyes warm dung out of a swallow's nest, and he became blind.

This trial did the Lord allow to befall him, that his patience, like the patience of holy Job, might be an ensample to them that come after him. (Third Lesson of Monday.) For from a child he had alway feared God, and kept His commandments, and therefore, when the affliction of blindness came upon him, he was not angered against God, but remained unshaken in the fear of God, giving God thanks all the days of his life. For even as kings mocked at blessed Job, so did his kinsmen and his cousins mock at his life, saying : Where now is thine hope, for the which thou didst give alms and bury the dead ? But Tobias rebuked them, saying : Speak not thus, seeing that we are the children of the Saints, and that we look for that life which God will give unto them that deal never falsely in His covenant.
