The Tower of Babel Genesis 11:1-9

1 Now the whole earth had one language and the same


words. 2 and as people migrated from the east, they


found a plain in the land of Shinar and settled


there. 3 And they said to one another, "Come, let


us make bricks, and burn them thoroughly." And they had


brick for stone, and bitumin for mortar. 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." 5 And the Lord


came down to see the city and the tower, which


the children of man had built. 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. 7 Come, let us


go down and there confuse their language, so that they


may not understand one another's speech." 8 So the Lord


dispersed them from there over the face of all the


earth, and they left off building the city. 9 Therefore


its name was called Babel, because there the Lord confused


the languages of all the earth. And from there the


Lord dispersed them over the face of all the earth.
