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.
