The Bible in Its Traditions

Tobit 4:9–11


For you store up for yourself a good reward for the day of necessity.

For thou layest up a good treasure for thyself against the day of necessity.

10  For almsgiving liberates from every sin and from death, and it will not suffer the soul to go into darkness.

10  Because that alms do deliver from death, and suffereth not to come into darkness.

11  Almsgiving will be a great act of faith before the most high God, for all those who practice it.

11  For alms is a good gift unto all that give it in the sight of the most High.
