Read the Douay-Rheims Latin Vulgate Bible everyday from Genesis to Apocalypse. Todays reading is currently at: The Second Book of Chronicles Chapter 4:11-22 11 And Hiram made caldrons, and fleshhooks, and bowls: and finished all the king's work in the house of God: 12 That is to say, the two pillars, and the pommels, and the chapiters, and the network, to cover the chapiters over the pommels. 13 And four hundred pomegranates, and two wreaths of network, so that two rows of pomegranates were joined to each wreath, to cover the pommels, and the chapiters of the pillars. 14 He made also bases, and lavers, which he set upon the bases: 15 One sea, and twelve oxen under the sea; 16 And the caldrons, and fleshhooks, and bowls. All the vessels did Hiram his father make for Solomon in the house of the Lord of the finest brass. 17 In the country near the Jordan did the king cast them, in a clay ground between Sochot and Saredatha. 18 And the multitude of vessels was innumerable, so that the weight of the brass was not known. 19 And Solomon made all the vessels for the house of God, and the golden altar, and the tables, upon which were the leaves of proposition, 20 The candlesticks also of most pure gold with their lamps to give light before the oracle, according to the manner. 21 And certain flowers, and lamps, and golden tongs: all were made of the finest gold. 22 The vessels also for the perfumes, and the censers, and the bowls, and the mortars, of pure gold. And he graved the doors of the inner temple, that is, for the holy of holies: and the doors of the temple without were of gold. And thus all the work was finished which Solomon made in the house of the Lord.
