Read the Word Of God Daily

Read the Douay-Rheims Latin Vulgate Bible everyday from Genesis to Apocalypse, the reading is currently at: Genesis 33:4-14

4 Then Esau ran to meet his brother, and embraced him: and clasping him fast about the neck, and kissing him, wept. 5 And lifting up his eyes, he saw the women and their children, and said: What mean these? And do they belong to thee? He answered: They are the children which God hath given to me thy servant.

6 Then the handmaids and their children came near, and bowed themselves. 7 Lia also with her children came near, and bowed down in like manner, and last of all Joseph and Rachel bowed down. 8 And Esau said: What are the droves that I met? He answered: That I might find favour before my lord. 9 But he said: I have plenty, my brother, keep what is thine for thyself. 10 And Jacob said: Do not so I beseech thee, but if I have found favour in thy eyes, receive a little present at my hands: for I have seen thy face, as if I should have seen the countenance of God: be gracious to me,

11 And take the blessing, which I have brought thee, and which God hath given me, who giveth all things. He took it with much ado at his brother's earnest pressing him, 12 And said: Let us go on together, and I will accompany thee in thy journey. 13 And Jacob said: My lord, thou knowest that I have with me tender children, and sheep, and kine with young: which if I should cause to be overdriven, in one day all the flocks will die. 14 May it please my lord to go before his servant: and I will follow softly after him, as I shall see my children to be able, until I come to my lord in Seir.
