Genesis 11

RSV 1 Now the whole earth had one language and few words. NIV 1 Now the whole world had one language and a common speech. RSV 2 And as men 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. RSV 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. RSV 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 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." RSV 5 And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the sons of men had built. NIV 5 But the LORD came down to see the city and the tower that the men were building. RSV 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. RSV 7 Come, let us go down, and there confuse 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." RSV 8 So the LORD scattered them abroad 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. RSV 9 Therefore its name was called Ba'bel, because there the LORD confused the language of all the earth; and from there the LORD scattered them abroad 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.
