Read the Word Of God Daily

Read the Douay-Rheims Latin Vulgate Bible everyday from Genesis to Apocalypse, the reading is currently at: Genesis 44:6-15

6 He did as he had commanded him. And having overtaken them, he spoke to them the same words. 7 And they answered: Why doth our lord speak so, as though thy servants had committed so heinous a fact? 8 The money, that we found in the top of our sacks, we brought back to thee from the land of Chanaan: how then should it be that we should steal out of thy lord's house, gold or silver? 9 With whomsoever of thy servants shall be found that which thou seekest, let him die, and we will be the bondmen of my lord. 10 And he said to them: Let it be according to your sentence: with whomsoever it shall be found, let him be my servant, and you shall be blameless.

11 Then they speedily took down their sacks to the ground, and every man opened his sack. 12 Which when he had searched, beginning at the eldest and ending at the youngest, he found the cup in Benjamin's sack. 13 Then they rent their garments, and loading their asses again, returned into the town. 14 And Juda at the head of his brethren went in to Joseph, (for he was not yet gone out of the place), and they altogether fell down before him on the ground. 15 And he said to them: Why would you do so? know you not that there is no one like me in the science of divining.

15 "The science of divining"... He speaks of himself according to what he was esteemed in that kingdom. And indeed, he being truly a prophet, knew more without comparison than any of the Egyptian sorcerers.
