Read the Word Of God Daily

Read the Douay-Rheims Latin Vulgate Bible everyday from Genesis to Apocalypse, the reading is currently at: Genesis 41:41-57

41 And again Pharao said to Joseph: Behold, I have appointed thee over the whole land of Egypt. 42 And he took his ring from his own hand, and gave it into his hand: and he put upon him a robe of silk, and put a chain of gold about his neck. 43 And he made him go up into his second chariot, the crier proclaiming that all should bow their knee before him, and that they should know he was made governor over the whole land of Egypt. 44 And the king said to Joseph: I am Pharao; without thy commandment no man shall move hand or foot in all the land of Egypt. 45 And he turned his name, and called him in the Egyptian tongue, The saviour of the world. And he gave him to wife Aseneth the daughter of Putiphare priest of Heliopolis. Then Joseph went out to the land of Egypt:

45 "The saviour of the world"... Zaphnah paaneah.

46 (Now he was thirty years old when he stood before king Pharao) and he went round all the countries of Egypt. 47 And the fruitfulness of the seven years came: and the corn being bound up into sheaves was gathered together into the barns of Egypt. 48 And all the abundance of grain was laid up in every city. 49 And there was so great abundance of wheat, that it was equal to the sand of the sea, and the plenty exceeded measure. 50 And before the famine came, Joseph had two sons born: whom Aseneth the daughter of Putiphare priest of Heliopolis bore unto him.

51 And he called the name of the firstborn Manasses, saying: God hath made me to forget all my labours, and my father's house. 52 And he named the second Ephraim, saying: God hath made me to grow in the land of my poverty. 53 Now when the seven years of the plenty that had been in Egypt were past: 54 The seven years of scarcity, which Joseph had foretold, began to come: and the famine prevailed in the whole world, but there was bread in all the land of Egypt. 55 And when there also they began to be famished, the people cried to Pharao for food. And he said to them: Go to Joseph: and do all that he shall say to you.

51 "Manasses"... That is, oblivion, or forgetting.

52 "Ephraim"... That is, fruitful, or growing.


56 And the famine increased daily in all the land: and Joseph opened all the barns, and sold to the Egyptians: for the famine had oppressed them also. 57 And all provinces came into Egypt, to buy food, and to seek some relief of their want.
