Tobit 2:5

“Then I returned and washed my selfe, and ate my meate in heauinesse,”

King James Version (KJV)

Tobit 2:5

2. And when I saw abundance of meate, I sayd to my sonne, Goe and bring what poore man soeuer thou shalt finde out of our brethren, who is mindfull of the Lord, and loe, I tarie for thee. 3. But he came againe and said, Father, one of our nation is strangled, and is cast out in the market place. 4. Then before I had tasted of any meate, I start vp and tooke him vp into a roume, vntill the going downe of the Sunne. 5. Then I returned and washed my selfe, and ate my meate in heauinesse, 6. Remembring that prophesie of Amos, as hee said; Your feasts shall be turned into mourning, and all your mirth into lamentation. 7. Therefore I wept: and after the going downe of the Sunne, I went and made a graue, and buried him. 8. But my neighbours mocked me, and said, This man is not yet afraide to be put to death for this matter, who fledde away, and yet loe, he burieth the dead againe.
