Read the Word Of God Daily

Read the Douay-Rheims Latin Vulgate Bible everyday from Genesis to Apocalypse, the reading is currently at: Exodus 34:21-35

21 Six days shalt thou work, the seventh day thou shalt cease to plough, and to reap. 22 Thou shalt keep the feast of weeks with the firstfruits of the corn of thy wheat harvest, and the feast when the time of the year returneth that all things are laid in. 23 Three times in a year all thy males shall appear in the sight of the Almighty Lord the God of Israel. 24 For when I shall have taken away the nations from thy face, and shall have enlarged thy borders, no man shall lie in wait against thy land when thou shalt go up, and appear in the sight of the Lord thy God thrice in a year. 25 Thou shalt not offer the blood of my sacrifice upon leaven: neither shall there remain in the morning any thing of the victim of the solemnity of the Lord.

26 The first of the fruits of thy ground thou shalt offer in the house of the Lord thy God. Thou shalt not boil a kid in the milk of his dam. 27 And the Lord said to Moses: Write these words by which I have made a covenant both with thee and with Israel. 28 And he was there with the Lord forty days and forty nights: he neither ate bread nor drank water, and he wrote upon the tables the ten words of the covenant. 29 And when Moses came down from the mount Sinai, he held the two tables of the testimony, and he knew not that his face was horned from the conversation of the Lord. 30 And Aaron and the children of Israel seeing the face of Moses horned, were afraid to come near.

29 "Horned"... That is, shining, and sending forth rays of light like horns.

31 And being called by him, they returned, both Aaron and the rulers of the congregation. And after that he spoke to them. 32 And all the children of Israel came to him: and he gave them in commandment all that he had heard of the Lord in mount Sinai. 33 And having done speaking, he put a veil upon his face. 34 But when he went in to the Lord, and spoke with him, he took it away until he came forth, and then he spoke to the children of Israel all things that had been commanded him. 35 And they saw that the face of Moses when he came out was horned, but he covered his face again, if at any time he spoke to them.
