The Tower of Babel

11 Now the whole earth had one language and one 1speech. And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land aof Shinar, and they dwelt there. Then they said to one another, “Come, let us make bricks and 2bake them thoroughly.” They had brick for stone, and they had asphalt for mortar. And they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city, and a tower bwhose top is in the heavens; let us make a cname for ourselves, lest we dbe scattered abroad over the face of the whole earth.”

eBut the Lord came down to see the city and the tower which the sons of men had built. And the Lord said, “Indeed fthe people are one and they all have gone language, and this is what they begin to do; now nothing that they hpropose to do will be withheld from them. Come, ilet Us go down and there jconfuse their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.” So kthe Lord scattered them abroad from there lover the face of all the earth, and they ceased building the city. Therefore its name is called 3Babel, mbecause there the Lord confused the language of all the earth; and from there the Lord scattered them abroad over the face of all the earth.
