In Tobit Chapter 6, Tobiah and Rapahel set out on their adventure to call on Tobit's loan from Raguel in Ecbatana. Along the way, Raphael shows Tobiah how to survive a fish attack on the River Tigris, plays cupid to him. Little did Tobiah know that he is getting married to Sarah, daughter of Raguel, on top of collecting the silver for his father.
