Genesis 11:1-9 (The Darby Translation)

View In My Bible
1 And the whole earth had a one language, and the same words. 2 And it came to pass as they journeyed from b the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar, and dwelt there. 3 And they said one to another, Come on, let us make bricks, and burn [them] thoroughly. c And they had brick for stone, and they had asphalt for mortar. 4 And they said, Come on, let us build ourselves a city and a tower, the top d of which [may reach] to the heavens; and let us make ourselves a name, lest we be scattered over the face of the whole earth. 5 And Jehovah came down to see the city and the tower which the children of men built. 6 And Jehovah said, Behold, the people is one, and have all one language; and this have they begun to do. And now will they be hindered in nothing that they meditate doing. 7 Come, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech. 8 And Jehovah scattered them thence over the face of the whole earth. And they left off building the city. 9 Therefore was its name called Babel; e because Jehovah there confounded the language f of the whole earth. And Jehovah scattered them thence over the face of the whole earth.
