Read the Douay-Rheims Latin Vulgate Bible everyday from Genesis to Apocalypse, the reading is currently at: Exodus 30:21-30
21 Lest perhaps they die. It shall be an everlasting law to him, and to his seed by successions. 22 And the Lord spoke to Moses, 23 Saying: Take spices, of principal and chosen myrrh five hundred sicles, and of cinnamon half so much, that is, two hundred and fifty sicles, of calamus in like manner two hundred and fifty. 24 And of cassia five hundred sicles by the weight of the sanctuary, of oil of olives the measure hin: 25 And thou shalt make the holy oil of unction, an ointment compounded after the art of the perfumer,
26 And therewith thou shalt anoint the tabernacle of the testimony, and the ark of the testament, 27 And the table with the vessels thereof, the candlestick and furniture thereof, the altars of incense, 28 And of holocaust, and all the furniture that belongeth to the service of them. 29 And thou shalt sanctify all, and they shall be most holy: he that shall touch them shall be sanctified. 30 Thou shalt anoint Aaron and his sons, and shalt sanctify them, that they may do the office of priesthood unto me.
