Read the Word Of God Daily

Read the Douay-Rheims Latin Vulgate Bible everyday from Genesis to Apocalypse, the reading is currently at: Genesis 35:6-15

6 And Jacob came to Luza, which is in the land of Chanaan, surnamed Bethel: he and all the people that were with him. 7 And he built there an altar, and called the name of that place, The house of God: for there God appeared to him when he fled from his brother. 8 At the same time Debora the nurse of Rebecca died, and was buried at the foot of Bethel under an oak: and the name of that place was called, The oak of weeping. 9 And God appeared again to Jacob, after he returned from Mesopotamia of Syria, and he blessed him, 10 Saying: Thou shalt not be called any more Jacob, but Israel shall be thy name. And he called him Israel.

10 "Israel"... This name signifieth one that prevaileth with God.

11 And said to him: I am God Almighty, increase thou and be multiplied. Nations and peoples of nations shall be from thee, and kings shall come out of thy loins. 12 And the land which I gave to Abraham and Isaac, I will give to thee, and to thy seed after thee. 13 And he departed from him. 14 But he set up a monument of stone, in the place where God had spoken to him: pouring drink offerings upon it, and pouring oil thereon: 15 And calling the name of that place Bethel.
