Read the Word Of God Daily

Read the Douay-Rheims Latin Vulgate Bible everyday from Genesis to Apocalypse, the reading is currently at: Genesis 41:21-30

31 And the greatness of the scarcity shall destroy the greatness of the plenty. 32 And for that thou didst see the second time a dream pertaining to the same thing: it is a token of the certainty, and that the word of God cometh to pass, and is fulfilled speedily. 33 Now therefore let the king provide a wise and industrious man, and make him ruler over the land of Egypt: 34 That he may appoint overseers over all the countries: and gather into barns the fifth part of the fruits, during the seven fruitful years, 35 That shall now presently ensue: and let all the corn be laid up under Pharao's hands and be reserved in the cities.

36 And let it be in readiness, against the famine of seven years to come, which shall oppress Egypt, and the land shall not be consumed with scarcity. 37 The counsel pleased Pharao and all his servants. 38 And he said to them: Can we find such another man, that is full of the spirit of God? 39 He said therefore to Joseph: Seeing God hath shown thee all that thou hast said, can I find one wiser and one like unto thee? 40 Thou shalt be over my house, and at the commandment of thy mouth all the people shall obey: only in the kingly throne will I be above thee.
