Tobit said to him, "May you come in health and safety, brother! Don't be offended, brother, that I wanted to know the truth about your family. But you happen to be a relative, and you are from a good and honorable heritage. I knew Hananiah and Nathan, the two sons of the great Shemeliah. They used to go with me to Jerusalem. They used to worship with me there and weren't led astray. Your relatives are good men; you are of good stock, and may you feel welcome for coming here!"
