Genesis 11:1-9 (The Webster Bible)

View In My Bible
1 And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech. 2 And it came to pass as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar, and they dwelt there. 3 And they said one to another, come, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for mortar. 4 And they said, come, let us build us a city, and a tower, whose top [may reach] to heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we should be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth. 5 And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men were building. 6 And the LORD said, Behold, the people [is] one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. 7 Come, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech. 8 So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city. 9 Therefore is the name of it called Babel, because the LORD there confounded the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.
