Genesis 11:4-9 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
4 Then they said, "Come, let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens,1 so that we may make a name2 for ourselves and not be scattered3 over the face of the whole earth."4 5 But the LORD came down5 to see the city and the tower that the men were building. 6 The LORD said, "If as one people speaking the same language6 they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them. 7 Come, let us7 go down8 and confuse their language so they will not understand each other."9 8 So the LORD scattered them from there over all the earth,10 and they stopped building the city. 9 That is why it was called Babela11--because there the LORD confused the language12 of the whole world.13 From there the LORD scattered14 them over the face of the whole earth.
