GABAEL. 1. A distant ancestor of Tobit ( Tob 1:1 ). 2. A friend and kinsman of Tobit residing at Rages in Media. To him Tobit, when purveyor to the king of Assyria, once entrusted, as a deposit, 10 talents of silver ( Tob 1:14 ). When blindness and poverty came on Tobit in Nineveh, he recollected, after prayer, the long-forgotten treasure ( Tob 4:1 ), and wished his son Tobias to fetch it ( Tob 4:21 ). Tobias found a guide, Raphael in disguise, who said he had lodged with Gabael ( Tob 5:6 ). When Tobias married Sarah in Ecbatana, he sent Raphael for the deposit ( Tob 9:2 ).
