Tobit 13:1 In-Context

1 Then Tobit said: "Blessed be God who lives forever, because his kingdom lasts throughout all ages.
2 For he afflicts, and he shows mercy; he leads down to Hades in the lowest regions of the earth, and he brings up from the great abyss, and there is nothing that can escape his hand.
3 Acknowledge him before the nations, O children of Israel; for he has scattered you among them.
4 He has shown you his greatness even there. Exalt him in the presence of every living being, because he is our Lord and he is our God; he is our Father and he is God forever.
5 He will afflict you for your iniquities, but he will again show mercy on all of you. He will gather you from all the nations among whom you have been scattered.
