Tobit, also called The Book Of Tobias, is a apocryphal work (noncanonical for Jews and Protestants) that found its way into the Roman Catholic canon via the Septuagint.  The book relates how Tobit, a pious Jew exiled to Nineveh in Assyria, observed the precepts of Hebrew Law by giving alms and by burying the dead. In spite of his good works, Tobit was struck blind.
