This card is a depiction of the story of Tobias. His father had been struck blind and could not accompany him on a trip across the desert. Tobias called on the archangel who did so in disguise. Along the way he introduced Tobias to his future wife and advised him to burn the innards of a fish they had caught for lasting happiness. When this was done the father was cured of his blindness.
