Read the Word Of God Daily

Chapter 18 of the Book Of Deuteronomy

Read the Douay-Rheims Latin Vulgate Bible everyday from Genesis to Apocalypse. Todays reading is currently at:
Deuteronomy 18:1-11

1 The priests and Levites, and all that are of the same tribe, shall have no part nor inheritance with the rest of Israel, because they shall eat the sacrifices of the Lord, and his oblations, 2 And they shall receive nothing else. of the possession of their brethren: for the Lord himself is their inheritance, as he hath said to them. 3 This shall be the priest's due from the people, and from them that offer victims: whether they sacrifice an ox, or a sheep, they shall give to the priest the shoulder and the breast: 4 The firstfruits also of corn, of wine, and of oil, and a part of the wool from the shearing of their sheep. 5 For the Lord thy God hath chosen him of all thy tribes, to stand and to minister to the name of the Lord, him and his sons for ever.

6 If a Levite go out of any one of the cities throughout all Israel, in which he dwelleth, and have a longing mind to come to the place which the Lord shall choose, 7 He shall minister in the name of the Lord his God, as all his brethren the Levites do, that shall stand at that time before the Lord. 8 He shall receive the same portion of food that the rest do: besides that which is due to him in his own city, by succession from his fathers. 9 When thou art come into the land which the Lord thy God shall give thee, beware lest thou have a mind to imitate the abominations of those nations. 10 Neither let there be found among you any one that shall expiate his son or daughter, making them to pass through the fire: or that consulteth soothsayers, or observeth dreams and omens, neither let there be any wizard,

11 Nor charmer, nor any one that consulteth pythonic spirits, or fortune tellers, or that seeketh the truth from the dead.

Interesting how different our life is from life in the OT days, yet how much can still be applied!

So true Elizabeth. All we have to do is look around to see how much of the world has gone so far away and following the New Age that is warned about.
