Blind Tobit hears his wife Anna come home with a bleating young goat - payment for the work she has done. Tobit however, thinks the goat is stolen goods and summons Anna to return it to its owner. Anna thinks Tobit has lost it, and is very sharp with him.

Rembrandt also made a drawing on this subject.
