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 25:11-20

11 Because it is the jubilee and the fiftieth year. You shall not sow, nor reap the things that grow in the field of their own accord, neither shall you gather the firstfruits of the vines, 12 Because of the sanctification of the jubilee: but as they grow you shall presently eat them. 13 In the year of the jubilee all shall return to their possessions. 14 When thou shalt sell any thing to thy neighbour, or shalt buy of him; grieve not thy brother: but thou shalt buy of him according to the number of years from the jubilee. 15 And he shall sell to thee according to the computation of the fruits.

16 The more years remain after the jubilee, the more shall the price increase: and the less time is counted, so much the less shall the purchase cost. For he shall sell to thee the time of the fruits. 17 Do not afflict your countrymen, but let every one fear his God: because I am the Lord your God. 18 Do my precepts, and keep my judgments, and fulfill them: that you may dwell in the land without any fear, 19 And the ground may yield you its fruits, of which you may eat your fill, fearing no man's invasion. 20 But if you say: What shall we eat the seventh year, if we sow not, nor gather our fruits?
