Read the Word Of God Daily

Read the Douay-Rheims Latin Vulgate Bible everyday from Genesis to Apocalypse, the reading is currently at: Genesis 44:16-25

16 And Juda said to him: What shall we answer my lord? or what shall we say, or be able justly to allege? God hath found out the iniquity of thy servants: behold, we are all bondmen to my lord, both we, and he with whom the cup was found. 17 Joseph answered: God forbid that I should do so: he that stole the cup, he shall be my bondman: and go you away free to your father. 18 Then Juda coming nearer, said boldly: I beseech thee, my lord, let thy servant speak a word in thy ears, and be not angry with thy servant: for after Pharao thou art, 19 My lord. Thou didst ask thy servants the first time: Have you a father or a brother? 20 And we answered thee, my lord: We have a father an old man, and a young boy, that was born in his old age; whose brother by the mother is dead: and he alone is left of his mother, and his father loveth him tenderly.

21 And thou saidst to thy servants: Bring him hither to me, and I will set my eyes on him. 22 We suggested to my lord: The boy cannot leave his father: for if he leave him, he will die. 23 And thou saidst to thy servants: Except your youngest brother come with you, you shall see my face no more. 24 Therefore when we were gone up to thy servant our father, we told him all that my lord had said. 25 And our father said: Go again, and buy us a little wheat.
