Daily Bible Reading

Read the Douay-Rheims Bible everyday from Genesis to the end, the reading is currently at Genesis 30:26-35.


26 Give me my wives, and my children, for whom I have served thee, that I may depart: thou knowest the service that I have rendered thee. 27 Laban said to him: Let me find favour in thy sight: I have learned by experience, that God hath blessed me for thy sake. 28 Appoint thy wages which I shall give thee. 29 But he answered: Thou knowest how I have served thee, and how great thy possession hath been in my hands. 30 Thou hadst but little before I came to thee, and now thou art become rich: and the Lord hath blessed thee at my coming. It is reasonable therefore that I should now provide also for my own house.

31 And Laban said: What shall I give thee? But he said: I require nothing: but if thou wilt do what I demand, I will feed, and keep thy sheep again. 32 Go round through all thy flocks, and separate all the sheep of divers colours, and speckled: and all that is brown and spotted, and of divers colours, as well among the sheep, as among the goats, shall be my wages. 33 And my justice shall answer for me tomorrow before thee when the time of the bargain shall come: and all that is not of divers colours, and spotted, and brown, as well among the sheep as among the goats, shall accuse me of theft. 34 And Laban said: I like well what thou demandest. 35 And he separated the same day the she goats, and the sheep, and the he goats, and the rams of divers colours, and spotted: and all the flock of one colour, that is, of white and black fleece, he delivered into the hands of his sons.
