Read the Word Of God Daily

Chapter 21 of the Book Of Numbers

Read the Douay-Rheims Latin Vulgate Bible everyday from Genesis to Apocalypse. Todays reading is currently at:
Numbers 21:1-10

11 And departing thence they pitched their tents in Jeabarim, in the wilderness, that faceth Moab toward the east. 12 And removing from thence, they came to the torrent Zared: 13 Which they left and encamped over against Arnon, which is in the desert and standeth out on the borders of the Amorrhite. For Arnon is the border of Moab, dividing the Moabites and the Amorrhites. 14 Wherefore it is said in the book of the wars of the Lord: As he did in the Red Sea, so will he do in the streams of Amen. 15 The rocks of the torrents were bowed down that they might rest in Ar, and lie down in the borders of the Moabites.

14 "The book of the wars"... An ancient book, which, like several others quoted in scripture, has been lost.

16 When they went from that place, the well appeared whereof the Lord said to Moses: Gather the people together, and I will give them water. 17 Then Israel sung this song: Let the well spring up. They sung thereto: 18 The well, which the princes dug, and the chiefs of the people prepared by the direction of the lawgiver, and with their staves. And they marched from the wilderness to Mathana. 19 From Mathana unto Nahaliel: from Nahaliel unto Bamoth. 20 From Bamoth, is a valley in the country of Moab, to the top of Phasga, which looked towards the desert.
