View In My Bible
5 1The LORD came down to see the city and the tower which the sons of men had built. 6 The LORD said, "Behold, they are one people, and they all have a2the same language. And this is what they began to do, and now nothing which they purpose to do will be bimpossible for them. 7 "Come, 3let Us go down and there 4confuse their clanguage, so that they will not understand one another's dspeech." 8 So the LORD 5scattered them abroad from there over the face of the whole earth; and they stopped building the city. 9 Therefore its name was called e6Babel, because there the LORD confused the flanguage of the whole earth; and from there the LORD scattered them abroad over the face of the whole earth.
