Read the Douay-Rheims Latin Vulgate Bible everyday from Genesis to Apocalypse, the reading is currently at: Exodus 27:1-10
1 Thou shalt make also an altar of setim wood, which shall be five cubits long and as many broad, that is, foursquare, and three cubits high. 2 And there shall be horns at the four corners of the same: and thou shalt cover it with brass. 3 And thou shalt make for the uses thereof pans to receive the ashes, and tongs and fleshhooks, and firepans: all its vessels thou shalt make of brass. 4 And a grate of brass in manner of a net: at the four corners of which shall be four rings of brass, 5 Which thou shalt put under the hearth of the altar: and the grate shall be even to the midst of the altar.
6 Thou shalt make also two bars for the altar of setim wood, which thou shalt cover with plates of brass: 7 And thou shalt draw them through rings, and they shall be on both sides of the altar to carry it. 8 Thou shalt not make it solid, but empty and hollow in the inside, as it was shown thee in the mount. 9 Thou shalt make also the court of the tabernacle, in the south side whereof southward there shall be hangings of fine twisted linen of a hundred cubits long for one side. 10 And twenty pillars with as many sockets of brass, the heads of which with their engraving of silver.
