Read the Word Of God Daily

Read the Douay-Rheims Latin Vulgate Bible everyday from Genesis to Apocalypse, the reading is currently at: Genesis 39:11-23

11 Now it happened on a certain day, that Joseph went into the house, and was doing some business without any, man with him: 12 And she catching the skirt of his garment, said: Lie with me. But he leaving the garment in her hand, fled, and went out. 13 And when the woman saw the garment in her hands, and herself disregarded, 14 She called to her the men of her house, and said to them: See, he hath brought in a Hebrew, to abuse us: he came in to me, to lie with me: and when I cried out, 15 And he heard my voice, he left the garment that I held, and got him out.

16 For a proof therefore of her fidelity, she kept the garment, and showed it to her husband when he returned home: 17 And said: The Hebrew servant, whom thou hast brought, came to me to abuse me. 18 And when he heard me cry, he left the garment which I held, and fled out. 19 His master hearing these things, and giving too much credit to his wife's words, was very angry. 20 And cast Joseph into the prison, where the king's prisoners were kept, and he was there shut up.

16 "A proof therefore of her fidelity"... or an argument to gain credit, argumentum fidei.

21 But the Lord was with Joseph and having mercy upon him gave him favour in the sight of the chief keeper of the prison: 22 Who delivered into his hand all the prisoners that were kept in custody: and whatsoever was done was under him. 23 Neither did he himself know any thing, having committed all things to him: for the Lord was with him, and made all that he did to prosper.
