Read the Douay-Rheims Latin Vulgate Bible everyday from Genesis to Apocalypse. Todays reading is currently at: Numbers 5:1-10
1 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: 2 Command the children of Israel, that they cast out of the camp every leper, and whosoever hath an issue of seed, or is defiled by the dead: 3 Whether it be man or woman, cast ye them out of the camp, lest they defile it when I shall dwell with you. 4 And the children of Israel did so, and they cast them forth without the camp, as the Lord had spoken to Moses. 5 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying:
6 Say to the children of Israel: When a man or woman shall have committed any of all the sins that men are wont to commit, and by negligence shall have transgressed the commandment of the Lord, and offended, 7 They shall confess their sin, and restore the principal itself, and the fifth part over and above, to him against whom they have sinned. 8 But if there be no one to receive it, they shall give it to the Lord, and it shall be the priest's, besides the ram that is offered for expiation, to be an atoning sacrifice. 9 All the firstfruits also, which the children of Israel offer, belong to the priest: 10 And whatsoever is offered into the sanctuary by every one, and is delivered into the hands of the priest, it shall be his.
7 "Shall confess"... This confession and satisfaction, ordained in the Old Law, was a figure of the sacrament of penance.
