Genesis 11

YLT 1 And the whole earth is of one pronunciation, and of the same words, NIV 1 Now the whole world had one language and a common speech. YLT 2 and it cometh to pass, in their journeying from the east, that they find a valley in the land of Shinar, and dwell there; NIV 2 As men moved eastward, they found a plain in Shinar and settled there. YLT 3 and they say each one to his neighbour, `Give help, let us make bricks, and burn [them] thoroughly:' and the brick is to them for stone, and the bitumen hath been to them 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. YLT 4 And they say, `Give help, let us build for ourselves a city and tower, and its head in the heavens, and make for ourselves a name, lest we be scattered over the face of all the 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." YLT 5 And Jehovah cometh down to see the city and the tower which the sons of men have builded; NIV 5 But the LORD came down to see the city and the tower that the men were building. YLT 6 and Jehovah saith, `Lo, the people [is] one, and one pronunciation [is] to them all, and this it hath dreamed of doing; and now, nothing is restrained from them of that which they have purposed 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. YLT 7 Give help, let us go down, and mingle there their pronunciation, so that a man doth not understand the pronunciation of his companion.' NIV 7 Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other." YLT 8 And Jehovah doth scatter them from thence over the face of all the earth, and they cease to build the city; NIV 8 So the LORD scattered them from there over all the earth, and they stopped building the city. YLT 9 therefore hath [one] called its name Babel, for there hath Jehovah mingled the pronunciation of all the earth, and from thence hath Jehovah scattered 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. YLT 10 These [are] births of Shem: Shem [is] a son of an hundred years, and begetteth Arphaxad two years after the deluge. NIV 10 This is the account of Shem.

NIV 26 After Terah had lived 70 years, he became the father of Abram, Nahor and Haran. YLT 27 And these [are] births of Terah: Terah hath begotten Abram, Nahor, and Haran; and Haran hath begotten 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. YLT 28 and Haran dieth in the presence of Terah his father, in the land of his birth, in Ur of the Chaldees.
