Read the Word Of God Daily

Chapter Ten of the Book Of Deuteronomy

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

1 At that time the Lord said to me: Hew thee two tables of stone like the former, and come up to me into the mount: and thou shalt make an ark of wood, 2 And I will write on the tables the words that were in them, which thou brokest before, and thou shalt put them in the ark. 3 And I made an ark of setim wood And when I had hewn two tables of stone like the former, I went up into the mount, having them in my hands. 4 And he wrote in the tables, according as he had written before, the ten words, which the Lord spoke to you in the mount from the midst of the fire, when the people were assembled: and he gave them to me. 5 And returning from the mount, I came down, and put the tables into the ark, that I had made, and they are there till this present, as the Lord commanded me.

6 And the children of Israel removed their camp from Beroth of the children of Jacan into Mosera, where Aaron died and was buried, and Eleazar his son succeeded him in the priestly office. 7 From thence they came to Gadgad, from which place they departed, and camped in Jetebatha, in a land of waters and torrents. 8 At that time he separated the tribe of Levi, to carry the ark of the covenant of the Lord, and to stand before him in the ministry, and to bless in his name until this present day. 9 Wherefore Levi hath no part nor possession with his brethren: because the Lord himself is his possession, as the Lord thy God promised him. 10 And I stood in the mount, as before, forty days and nights: and the Lord heard me this time also, and would not destroy thee.


6 "Mosera"... By mount Hor, for there Aaron died, Num. 20. This and the following verses seem to be inserted by way of parenthesis.
