Read the Word Of God Daily

Read the Douay-Rheims Latin Vulgate Bible everyday from Genesis to Apocalypse, the reading is currently at: Genesis 42:21-30

21 And they talked one to another: We deserve to suffer these things, because we have sinned against our brother, seeing the anguish of his soul, when he besought us, and we would not hear: therefore is this affliction come upon us. 22 And Ruben one of them, said: Did not I say to you: Do not sin against the boy: and you would not hear me? Behold his blood is required. 23 And they knew not that Joseph understood, because he spoke to them by an interpreter. 24 And he turned himself away a little while, and wept: and returning he spoke to them. 25 And taking Simeon, and binding him in their presence, he commanded his servants to fill their sacks with wheat, and to put every man's money again in their sacks, and to give them besides provisions for the way: and they did so.

26 But they having loaded their asses with the corn, went their way. 27 And one of them opening his sack, to give his beast provender in the inn, saw the money in the sack's mouth; 28 And said to his brethren: My money is given me again, behold it is in the sack. And they were astonished, and troubled, and said to one another: What is this that God hath done unto us? 29 And they came to Jacob their father in the land of Chanaan, and they told him all things that had befallen them, saying: 30 The lord of the land spoke roughly to us, and took us to be spies of the country.
