Genesis 11

ASV 1 And the whole earth was of one language and of one speech. NIV 1 Now the whole world had one language and a common speech. ASV 2 And it came to pass, as they journeyed east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there. NIV 2 As men moved eastward, they found a plain in Shinar and settled there. ASV 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. NIV 3 They said to each other, "Come, let's make bricks and bake them thoroughly." They used brick instead of stone, and tar for mortar. ASV 4 And they said, Come, let us build us a city, and a tower, whose top [may reach] unto heaven, and let us make us a name; lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth. NIV 4 Then they said, "Come, let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens, so that we may make a name for ourselves and not be scattered over the face of the whole earth." ASV 5 And Jehovah came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. NIV 5 But the LORD came down to see the city and the tower that the men were building. ASV 6 And Jehovah said, Behold, they are one people, and they have all one language; and this is what they begin to do: and now nothing will be withholden from them, which they purpose to do. NIV 6 The LORD said, "If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them. ASV 7 Come, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech. NIV 7 Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other." ASV 8 So Jehovah scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off building the city. NIV 8 So the LORD scattered them from there over all the earth, and they stopped building the city. ASV 9 Therefore was the name of it called Babel; because Jehovah did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did Jehovah scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth. NIV 9 That is why it was called Babel--because there the LORD confused the language of the whole world. From there the LORD scattered them over the face of the whole earth. ASV 10 These are the generations of Shem. Shem was a hundred years old, and begat Arpachshad two years after the flood. NIV 10 This is the account of Shem. Two years after the flood, when Shem was 100 years old, he became the father of Arphaxad. ASV 11 and Shem lived after he begat Arpachshad five hundred years, and begat sons and daughters. NIV 11 And after he became the father of Arphaxad, Shem lived 500 years and had other sons and daughters. ASV 12 And Arpachshad lived five and thirty years, and begat Shelah.

NIV 17 And after he became the father of Peleg, Eber lived 430 years and had other sons and daughters.

ASV 21 and Reu lived after he begat Serug two hundred and seven years, and begat sons and daughters. NIV 21 And after he became the father of Serug, Reu lived 207 years and had other sons and daughters. ASV 22 And Serug lived thirty years, and begat Nahor: NIV 22 When Serug had lived 30 years, he became the father of Nahor. ASV 23 and Serug lived after he begat Nahor two hundred years, and begat sons and daughters. NIV 23 And after he became the father of Nahor, Serug lived 200 years and had other sons and daughters. ASV 24 And Nahor lived nine and twenty years, and begat Terah: NIV 24 When Nahor had lived 29 years, he became the father of Terah. ASV 25 and Nahor lived after he begat Terah a hundred and nineteen years, and begat sons and daughters. NIV 25 And after he became the father of Terah, Nahor lived 119 years and had other sons and daughters. ASV 26 And Terah lived seventy years, and begat Abram, Nahor, and Haran. NIV 26 After Terah had lived 70 years, he became the father of Abram, Nahor and Haran. ASV 27 Now these are the generations of Terah. Terah begat Abram, Nahor, and Haran. And Haran begat Lot. NIV 27 This is the account of Terah. Terah became the father of Abram, Nahor and Haran. And Haran became the father of Lot. ASV 28 And Haran died before his father Terah in the land of his nativity, in Ur of the Chaldees. NIV 28 While his father Terah was still alive, Haran died in Ur of the Chaldeans, in the land of his birth. ASV 29 And Abram and Nahor took them wives: The name of Abram's wife was Sarai; and the name of Nahor's wife, Milcah, the daughter of Haran, the father of Milcah, and the father of Iscah. NIV 29 Abram and Nahor both married. The name of Abram's wife was Sarai, and the name of Nahor's wife was Milcah; she was the daughter of Haran, the father of both Milcah and Iscah. ASV 30 And Sarai was barren; She had no child. NIV 30 Now Sarai was barren; she had no children. ASV 31 And Terah took Abram his son, and Lot the son of Haran, his son's son, and Sarai his daughter-in-law, his son Abram's wife; and they went forth with them from Ur of the Chaldees, to go into the land of Canaan; and they came unto Haran, and dwelt there. NIV 31 Terah took his son Abram, his grandson Lot son of Haran, and his daughter-in-law Sarai, the wife of his son Abram, and together they set out from Ur of the Chaldeans to go to Canaan. But when they came to Haran, they settled there. ASV 32 And the days of Terah were two hundred and five years: and Terah died in Haran. NIV 32 Terah lived 205 years, and he died in Haran.
