This chapter gives an account of the inhabitants of the earth before
the confusion of tongues at Babel, of their speech and language, which
was one and the same, and of the place where they dwelt, \\#Ge 11:1,2\\
and of their design to build a city and tower, to make them a name and
keep them together, which they put in execution, \\#Ge 11:3,4\\ of the
notice the Lord took of this affair, and of the method he took to put a
stop to their designs, by confounding their speech, and dispersing
them abroad upon the face of the earth, \\#Ge 11:5-9\\ then follows a
genealogy of Shem's posterity down to Abraham, \\#Ge 11:10-26\\ and a
particular relation is given of Terah, the father of Abraham, and his
family, and of his going forth with them from Ur of the Chaldees, in
order to go into the land of Canaan, and of his death at Haran by the
way, \\#Ge 11:27-32\\.
