CHAPTER 6

Roasted fish hearts drive away devils
AbsurdityScience6:1-9

1 And Tobias went forward, and the dog followed him, and he lodged the first night by the river of Tigris.

Tobias's dog followed him as he went over the Tigris River.

2 And he went out to wash his feet, and behold a monstrous fish came up to devour him.

The next morning, Tobias went to wash his feet, and a monstrous fish tried to eat him.

3 And Tobias being afraid of him, cried out with a loud voice, saying: Sir, he cometh upon me.

Tobias cried out, saying, "Sir, the fish attacked me."

4 And the angel said to him: Take him by the gill, and draw him to thee. And when he had done so, he drew him out upon the land, and he began to pant before his feet.

The angel said,

Grab him by the gill and bring him out of the water.

5 Then the angel said to him: Take out the entrails of the fish, and lay up his heart, and his gall, and his liver for thee: for these are necessary for useful medicines.

Remove the entrails, with its heart, gall, and liver.

They make useful medicines.

6 And when he had done so, he roasted the flesh thereof, and they took it with them in the way: the rest they salted as much as might serve them, till they came to Rages the city of the Medes.

They cooked the fish and brought it with them.

7 Then Tobias asked the angel, and said to him: I beseech thee, brother Azarias, tell me what remedies are these things good for, which thou hast bid me keep of the fish?

Tobias said, "Azarias, what remedies are they good for?"

8 And the angel, answering, said to him: If thou put a little piece of its heart upon coals, the smoke thereof driveth away all kind of devils, either from man or from woman, so that they come no more to them.

The angel said, "

If you put a piece of its heart on the coals, the smoke will drive away all kinds of devils.

9And the gall is good for anointing the eyes, in which there is a white speck, and they shall be cured.

And the gall is good for the eyes. If you have a white speck on them, it'll cure them.

You must marry Sara 
AbsurditySex 6:10-

10 And Tobias said to him: Where wilt thou that we lodge?

Tobias said, "Where will we stay tonight?"

11 And the angel answering, said: Here is one whose name is Raguel, a near kinsman of thy tribe, and he hath a daughter named Sara, but he hath no son nor any other daughter beside her.

The angel answered, 

Here is the home of Raguel. He has a daughter named Sara.

12 All his substance is due to thee, and thou must take her to wife.

You must marry her.

13Ask her therefore of her father, and he will give her thee to wife.

Ask her father, and he'll give her to you.

14 Then Tobias answered, and said: I hear that she hath been given to seven husbands, and they all died: moreover I have heard, that a devil killed them.

Tobias said, 

I heard she had seven husbands, who were all killed by the devil.

15Now I am afraid, lest the same thing should happen to me also: and whereas I am the only child of my parents, I should bring down their old age with sorrow to hell.

I'm afraid the same thing might happen to me.

16 Then the angel Raphael said to him: Hear me, and I will shew thee who they are, over whom the devil can prevail.

Raphael said,

I'll show you who the devil can prevail over.

17 For they who in such manner receive matrimony, as to shut out God from themselves, and from their mind, and to give themselves to their lust, as the horse and mule, which have not understanding, over them the devil hath power.

It's those who give in to lust like a horse or a mule

18 But thou when thou shalt take her, go into the chamber, and for three days keep thyself continent from her, and give thyself to nothing else but to prayers with her.

But when you take her, don't have sex for three days after marrying her. 

Do nothing but pray with her.

19And on that night lay the liver of the fish on the fire, and the devil shall be driven away.

On the first night, put the fish on the fire and it'll drive away the devil.

20 But the second night thou shalt be admitted into the society of the holy Patriarchs.

On the second night, you'll be admitted to the society of holy patriarchs.

21 And the third night thou shalt obtain a blessing that sound children may be born of you.

And on the third night, you'll have a blessing that will assure you of having many children.

22 And when the third night is past, thou shalt take the virgin with the fear of the Lord, moved rather for love of children than for lust, that in the seed of Abraham thou mayst obtain a blessing in children.

Then have sex with her. But not for lust, only to have children.
