This paper discusses the rhetorical functions of quotative frames in the dialogue between Tobiah and Edna (4Q197 4 iii 3-8, Tob 7:1-5) and of Hebrew loan words in the Aramaic Tobit fragments and suggests a new explanation for the puzzling in 4Q197 4 iii 2 (Tob 7:1), which might be a mistranslation of a Hebrew original.
