Read the Word Of God Daily

Chapter 2 of the Book Of Judges

Read the Douay-Rheims Latin Vulgate Bible everyday from Genesis to Apocalypse. Todays reading is currently at:
Book Of Judges 2:1-10

1 And an angel of the Lord went up from Galgal to the place of weepers, and said: I made you go out of Egypt, and have brought you into the land for which I swore to your fathers: and I promised that I would not make void my covenant with you for ever: 2 On condition that you should not make a league with the inhabitants of this land, but should throw down their altars: and you would not hear my voice: why have you done this? 3 Wherefore I would not destroy them from before your face: that you may have enemies, and their gods may be your ruin. 4 And when the angel of the Lord spoke these words to all the children of Israel, they lifted up their voice, and wept. 5 And the name of that place was called, The place of weepers, or of tears: and there they offered sacrifices to the Lord.

1 "An angel"... Taking the shape of a man.

6 And Josue sent away the people, and the children of Israel went every one to his own possession to hold it: 7 And they served the Lord all his days, and the days of the ancients, that lived a long time after him, and who knew all the works of the Lord, which he had done for Israel. 8 And Josue the son of Nun, the servant of the Lord, died, being a hundred and ten years old, 9 And they buried him in the borders of his possession in Thamnathsare in mount Ephraim, on the north side of mount Gaas. 10 And all that generation was gathered to their fathers: and there arose others that knew not the Lord, and the works which he had done for Israel.

6 "And Josue"... This is here inserted out of Jos. 24, by way of recapitulation of what had happened before, and by way of an introduction to that which follows.
