Read the Word Of God Daily

Read the Douay-Rheims Latin Vulgate Bible everyday from Genesis to Apocalypse, the reading is currently at: Exodus 25:21-30


21 In which thou shalt put the testimony that I will give thee. 22 Thence will I give orders, and will speak to thee over the propitiatory, and from the midst of the two cherubims, which shall be upon the ark of the testimony, all things which I will command the children of Israel by thee. 23 Thou shalt make a table also of setim wood, of two cubits in length, and a cubit in breadth, and a cubit and half in height. 24 And thou shalt overlay it with the purest gold: and thou shalt make to it a golden ledge round about. 25 And to the ledge itself a polished crown, four inches high: and over the same another little golden crown.

23 "A table"... On which were to be placed the twelve loaves of proposition: or, as they are called in the Hebrew, the face bread, because they were always to stand before the face of the Lord in his temple: as a figure of the eucharistic sacrifice and sacrament, in the church of Christ.

26 Thou shalt prepare also four golden rings, and shalt put them in the four corners of the same table over each foot. 27 Under the crown shall the golden rings be, that the bars may be put through them, and the table may be carried. 28 The bars also themselves thou shalt make of setim wood, and shalt overlay them with gold to bear up the table. 29 Thou shalt prepare also dishes, and bowls, censers, and cups, wherein the libations are to be offered of the purest gold. 30 And thou shalt set upon the table loaves of proposition in my sight always.

29 "Libations"... That is, drink offerings.
