That makes sense since the D-R is a translation of the Vulgate.
I really love the prayers that came out of this book, my favorite line was in chapter 4 when Tobit gives instructions to his son, Tobias. I had the same problem, a while back when I went shopping for another bible - and knew that some didn't carry the book of Tobit but the ones that did I tried to look "not" for the new translation (English) as you can tell by the last prayer in Chapter 13 - the older version is something I look for. The New Jerusalem bible - on this translation has been update or reinterpreted.....so if anyone has thought to this:
13:2 For he doth scourge, and hath mercy: he leadeth down to hell, and bringeth up again: neither is there any that can avoid his hand.
Now read 1 Samuel 2:
6 “The LORD brings death and makes alive;
he brings down to the grave and raises up.
7 The LORD sends poverty and wealth;
he humbles and he exalts.
8 He raises the poor from the dust
and lifts the needy from the ash heap;
he seats them with princes
and has them inherit a throne of honor.
and another line was:
14 Nations from afar shall come to thee: and shall bring gifts, and shall adore the Lord in thee, and shall esteem thy land as holy.
which testifies to Matthew account:
9 After they had heard the king, they went on their way, and the star they had seen when it rose went ahead of them until it stopped over the place where the child was. 10 When they saw the star, they were overjoyed. 11 On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. 12 And having been warned in a dream not to go back to Herod, they returned to their country by another route.
Also some addt'l Information:
The Book of Tobias, as it is called in the Latin Vulgate Bible, is also known in the Greek Septuagint as the Book of Tobit. Both the Semitic origin of the book and the name Tobiah - טוֹבִיָּה, which means "Yahweh is my good," have been appreciated since antiquity. Link
"What is the book of Tobit?"
Answer: Tobit is part of what is considered the Apocrypha / Deuterocanonical scripture and appears in the Old Testament of Catholic Bibles. Except for some Episcopal or Lutheran Bibles, Tobit and other books of the Apocrypha do not appear in Protestant Bibles. Apocrypha means ‘hidden’ and Deuterocanonical means ‘second-listed.’ Books of the Apocrypha were generally written in the roughly 400 years between the composition of the books in the Old and New Testaments, the so-called intertestamental period. Tobit is one of 12-15 books generally recognized as comprising the Apocrypha.
