Read the Word Of God Daily

Read the Douay-Rheims Latin Vulgate Bible everyday from Genesis to Apocalypse, the reading is currently at: Exodus 5:12-23

12 And the people was scattered through all the land of Egypt to gather straw. 13 And the overseers of the works pressed them, saying: Fulfill your work every day as before you were wont to do when straw was given you. 14 And they that were over the works of the children of Israel were scourged by Pharao's taskmasters, saying: Why have you not made up the task of bricks both yesterday and today as before? 15 And the officers of the children of Israel came, and cried out to Pharao, saying: Why dealest thou so with thy servants?

16 Straw is not given us, and bricks are required of us as before: behold we thy servants are beaten with whips, and thy people is unjustly dealt withal. 17 And he said: You are idle, and therefore you say: Let us go and sacrifice to the Lord. 18 Go therefore, and work: straw shall not be given you, and you shall deliver the accustomed number of bricks. 19 And the officers of the children of Israel saw that they were in evil case, because it was said to them: There shall not a whit be diminished of the bricks for every day. 20 And they met Moses and Aaron, who stood over against them as they came out from Pharao:

21 And they said to them: The Lord see and judge, because you have made our savour to stink before Pharao and his servants, and you have given him a sword to kill us. 22 And Moses returned to the Lord, and said: Lord, why hast thou afflicted this people? wherefore hast thou sent me? 23 For since the time that I went in to Pharao to speak in thy name, he hath afflicted thy people: and thou hast not delivered them .
