Read the Word Of God Daily

Chapter 25 of the Book Of Leviticus

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

1 And the Lord spoke to Moses in mount Sinai, saying: 2 Speak to the children of Israel, and thou shalt say to them: When you shall have entered into the land which I will give you, observe the rest of the sabbath to the Lord. 3 Six years thou shalt sow thy field and six years thou shalt prune thy vineyard, and shalt gather the fruits thereof: 4 But in the seventh year there shall be a sabbath to the land, of the resting of the Lord: thou shalt not sow thy field, nor prune thy vineyard. 5 What the ground shall bring forth of itself, thou shalt not reap: neither shalt thou gather the grapes of the firstfruits as a vintage: for it is a year of rest to the land:

6 But they shall be unto you for meat, to thee and to thy manservant, to thy maidservant and thy hireling, and to the strangers that sojourn with thee: 7 All things that grow shall be meat to thy beasts and to thy cattle. 8 Thou shalt also number to thee seven weeks of years, that is to say, seven times seven, which together make forty-nine years: 9 And thou shalt sound the trumpet in the seventh month, the tenth day of the month, in the time of the expiation in all your land. 10 And thou shalt sanctify the fiftieth year, and shalt proclaim remission to all the inhabitants of thy land: for it is the year of jubilee. Every man shall return to his possession, and every one shall go back to his former family:

10 "Remission"... That is, a general release and discharge from debts and bondage, and a reinstating of every man in his former possessions.
