Read the Word Of God Daily

Read the Douay-Rheims Latin Vulgate Bible everyday from Genesis to Apocalypse, the reading is currently at: Genesis 42:11-20

11 We are all the sons of one man: we are come as peaceable men, neither do thy servants go about any evil. 12 And he answered them: It is otherwise: you are come to consider the unfenced parts of this land. 13 But they said: We thy servants are twelve brethren, the sons of one man in the land of Chanaan: the youngest is with our father, the other is not living. 14 He saith: This is it that I said: You are spies. 15 I shall now presently try what you are: by the health of Pharao you shall not depart hence, until your youngest brother come.

16 Send one of you to fetch him: and you shall be in prison, till what you have said be proved, whether it be true or false: or else by the health of Pharao you are spies. 17 So he put them in prison three days. 18 And the third day he brought them out of prison, and said: Do as I have said, and you shall live: for I fear God. 19 If you be peaceable men, let one of your brethren be bound in prison: and go ye your ways and carry the corn that you have bought, unto your houses. 20 And bring your youngest brother to me, that I may find your words to be true, and you may not die. They did as he had said.


16 "Or else by the health of Pharao you are spies"... That is, if these things you say be proved false, you are to be held for spies for your lying, and shall be treated as such. Joseph dealt in this manner with his brethren, to bring them by the means of affliction to a sense of their former sin, and a sincere repentance for it.
