Read the Word Of God Daily

Read the Douay-Rheims Latin Vulgate Bible everyday from Genesis to Apocalypse, the reading is currently at: Exodus 12:31-40


31 And Pharao calling Moses and Aaron, in the night, said: Arise and go forth from among my people, you and the children of Israel: go, sacrifice to the Lord as you say. 32 Your sheep and herds take along with you, as you demanded, and departing, bless me. 33 And the Egyptians pressed the people to go forth out of the land speedily, saying: We shall all die. 34 The people therefore took dough before it was leavened: and tying it in their cloaks, put it on their shoulders. 35 And the children of Israel did as Moses had commanded: and they asked of the Egyptians vessels of silver and gold, and very much raiment.

36 And the Lord gave favour to the people in the sight of the Egyptians, so that they lent unto them: and they stripped the Egyptians. 37 And the children of Israel set forward from Ramesse to Socoth, being about six hundred thousand men on foot, beside children. 38 And a mixed multitude without number went up also with them, sheep and herds and beasts of divers kinds, exceeding many. 39 And they baked the meal, which a little before they had brought out of Egypt, in dough: and they made earth cakes unleavened: for it could not be leavened, the Egyptians pressing them to depart, and not suffering them to make any stay: neither did they think of preparing any meat. 40 And the abode of the children of Israel that they made in Egypt, was four hundred and thirty years.
