Read The Bible Daily

Read the Douay-Rheims Latin Vulgate Bible everyday from Genesis to Apocalypse, the reading is currently at: Genesis 31:21-30

21 And when he was gone, together with all that belonged to him, and having passed the river, was going on towards mount Galaad, 22 It was told Laban on the third day that Jacob fled. 23 And he took his brethren with him, and pursued after him seven days; and overtook him in the mount of Galaad. 24 And he saw in a dream God saying to him: Take heed thou speak not any thing harshly against Jacob. 25 Now Jacob had pitched his tent in the mountain: and when he with his brethren had overtaken him, he pitched his tent in the same mount of Galaad.

26 And he said to Jacob: Why hast thou done thus, to carry away, without my knowledge, my daughters, as captives taken with the sword. 27 Why wouldst thou run away privately and not acquaint me, that I might have brought thee on the way with joy, and with songs, and with timbrels, and with harps? 28 Thou hast not suffered me to kiss my sons and daughters: thou hast done foolishly: and now, indeed, 29 It is in my power to return thee evil: but the God of your father said to me yesterday: Take heed thou speak not any thing harshly against Jacob. 30 Suppose thou didst desire to go to thy friends, and hadst a longing after thy father's house: why hast thou stolen away my gods?
