Read the Word Of God Daily

Chapter Three of the Book Of Numbers

Read the Douay-Rheims Latin Vulgate Bible everyday from Genesis to Apocalypse. The reading is currently at:
Numbers 3:41-51

41 And thou shalt take the Levites to me for all the firstborn of the children of Israel, I am the Lord: and their cattle for all the firstborn of the cattle of the children of Israel: 42 Moses reckoned up, as the Lord had commanded, the firstborn of the children of Israel: 43 And the males by their names, from one month and upward, were twenty-two thousand two hundred and seventy-three. 44 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saving: 45 Take the Levites for the firstborn of the children of Israel, and the cattle of the Levites for their cattle, and the Levites shall be mine. I am the Lord.

46 But for the price of the two hundred and seventy-three, of the firstborn of the children of Israel, that exceed the number of the Levites, 47 Thou shalt take five sides for every head, according to the weight of the sanctuary. A sicle hath twenty obols. 48 And then shalt give the money to Aaron and his sons, the price of them that are above. 49 Moses therefore took the money of them that were above, and whom they had redeemed from the Levites, 50 For the firstborn of the children of Israel, one thousand three hundred and sixty-five sicles, according to the weight of the sanctuary,

51 And gave it to Aaron and his sons, according to the word that the Lord had commanded him.
