Read The Word Of God Daily

Read the Douay-Rheims Latin Vulgate Bible everyday from Genesis to Apocalypse, the reading is currently at: Genesis 31:41-50


41 And in this manner have I served thee in thy house twenty years, fourteen for thy daughters, and six for thy flocks: thou hast changed also my wages ten times. 42 Unless the God of my father Abraham, and the fear of Isaac had stood by me, peradventure now thou hadst sent me away naked: God beheld my affliction and the labour of my hands, and rebuked thee yesterday. 43 Laban answered him: The daughters are mine and the children, and thy flocks, and all things that thou seest are mine: what can I do to my children, and grandchildren? 44 Come therefore, let us enter into a league: that it may be for a testimony between me and thee. 45 And Jacob took a stone, and set it up for a title:

46 And he said to his brethren: Bring hither stones. And they gathering stones together, made a heap, and they ate upon it. 47 And Laban called it The witness heap: and Jacob, The hillock of testimony: each of them according to the propriety of his language. 48 And Laban said: This heap shall be a witness between me and thee this day, and therefore the name thereof was called Galaad, that is, The witness heap. 49 The Lord behold and judge between us when we shall be gone one from the other. 50 If thou afflict my daughters, and if thou bring in other wives over them: none is witness of our speech but God, who is present and beholdeth.
