Read the Word Of God Daily

Read the Douay-Rheims Latin Vulgate Bible everyday from Genesis to Apocalypse, the reading is currently at: Exodus 25:1-10

1 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: 2 Speak to the children of Israel, that they bring firstfruits to me: of every man that offereth of his own accord, you shall take them. 3 And these are the things you must take: gold, and silver, and brass, 4 Violet and purple, and scarlet twice dyed, and fine linen, and goats' hair, 5 And rams' skins dyed red, and violet skins, and setim wood:

2 "Firstfruits"... Offerings of some of the best and choicest of their goods.

5 "Setim wood"... The wood of a tree that grows in the wilderness, which is said to be incorruptible.

6 Oil to make lights: spices for ointment, and for sweetsmelling incense: 7 Onyx stones, and precious stones to adorn the ephod and the rational. 8 And they shall make me a sanctuary, and I will dwell in the midst of them: 9 According to all the likeness of the tabernacle which I will show thee, and of all the vessels for the service thereof: and thus you shall make it: 10 Frame an ark of setim wood, the length whereof shall be of two cubits and a half: the breadth, a cubit and a half: the height, likewise, a cubit and a half.

7 "The ephod and the rational"... The ephod was the high priest's upper vestment; and the rational his breastplate, in which were twelve gems, etc.
