Read the Douay-Rheims Latin Vulgate Bible everyday from Genesis to Apocalypse. The reading is currently at:
Leviticus 25:41-55

41 And afterwards he shall go out with his children, and shall return to his kindred and to the possession of his fathers, 42 For they are my servants, and I brought them out of the land of Egypt: let them not be sold as bondmen: 43 Afflict him not by might, but fear thy God. 44 Let your bondmen, and your bondwomen, be of the nations that are round about you. 45 And of the strangers that sojourn among you, or that were born of them in your land, these you shall have for servants:

46 And by right of inheritance shall leave them to your posterity, and shall possess them for ever. But oppress not your brethren the children of Israel by might. 47 If the hand of a stranger or a sojourner grow strong among you, and thy brother being impoverished sell himself to him, or to any of his race: 48 After the sale he may be redeemed. He that will of his brethren shall redeem him: 49 Either his uncle, or his uncle's son, or his kinsman, by blood, or by affinity. But if he himself be able also, he shall redeem himself, 50 Counting only the years from the time of his selling unto the year of the jubilee: and counting the money that he was sold for, according to the number of the years and the reckoning of a hired servant,

51 If there be many years that remain until the jubilee, according to them shall he also repay the price. 52 If few, he shall make the reckoning with him according to the number of the years, and shall repay to the buyer of what remaineth of the years, 53 His wages being allowed for which he served before: he shall not afflict him violently in thy sight. 54 And if by these means he cannot be redeemed, in the year of the jubilee he shall go out with his children. 55 For the children of Israel are my servants, whom I brought forth out of the land of Egypt.
