Read the Word Of God Daily

Chapter 29 of the Book Of Deuteronomy

Read the Douay-Rheims Latin Vulgate Bible everyday from Genesis to Apocalypse. Todays reading is currently at:
Deuteronomy 29:21-29

21 And utterly destroy him out of all the tribes of Israel, according to the curses that are contained in the book of this law and covenant: 22 And the following generation shall say, and the children that shall be born hereafter, and the strangers that shall come from afar, seeing the plagues of that land and the evils wherewith the Lord hath afflicted it, 23 Burning it with brimstone, and the heat of salt, so that it cannot be sown any more, nor any green thing grow therein, after the example of the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrha, Adama and Seboim, which the Lord destroyed in his wrath and indignation: 24 And all the nations shall say: Why hath the Lord done thus to this land? what meaneth this exceeding great heat of his wrath? 25 And they shall answer: Because they forsook the covenant of the Lord, which he made with their fathers, when he brought them out of the land of Egypt:

26 And they have served strange gods, and adored them, whom they knew not, and for whom they had not been assigned: 27 Therefore the wrath of the Lord was kindled against this land, to bring upon it all the curses that are written in this volume: 28 And he hath cast them out of their land, in anger and in wrath, and in very great indignation, and hath thrown them into a strange land, as it is seen this day. 29 Secret things to the Lord our God: things that are manifest, to us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.


29 "Secret things"... As much as to say, secret things belong to, and are known to, God alone; our business must be to observe what he has revealed and manifested to us, and to direct our lives accordingly.
