Genesis 11

ESV 1 Now the whole earth had one language and the same words. NIV 1 Now the whole world had one language and a common speech. ESV 2 And as people migrated from the east, they found a plain in the land of Shinar and settled there. NIV 2 As men moved eastward, they found a plain in Shinar and settled there. ESV 3 And they said to one another, "Come, let us make bricks, and burn them thoroughly." And they had brick for stone, and bitumen 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. ESV 4 Then they said, "Come, let us build ourselves a city and a tower with its top in the heavens, and let us make a name for ourselves, lest we be dispersed over 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." ESV 5 And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of man had built. NIV 5 But the LORD came down to see the city and the tower that the men were building. ESV 6 And the LORD said, "Behold, they are one people, and they have all one language, and this is only the beginning of what they will do. And nothing that they propose to do will now be impossible for them. 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. ESV 7 Come, let us go down and there confuse their language, so 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." ESV 8 So the LORD dispersed them from there over 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. ESV 9 Therefore its name was called Babel, because there the LORD confused the language of all the earth. And from there the LORD dispersed them over 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.
