Genesis 11


11:1 And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech.
11:2 And it came to pass as they journeyed from the east, that
 they found a plain in the land of Shinar, and they dwelt there.
11:3 And they said one to another, come, let us make brick, and
 burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime
 had they for mortar.
11:4 And they said, come, let us build us a city, and a tower,
 whose top [may reach] to heaven; and let us make us a name,
 lest we should be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole
 earth.
11:5 And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which
 the children of men were building.
11:6 And the LORD said, Behold, the people [is] one, and they
 have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now
 nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined
 to do.
11:7 Come, let us go down, and there confound their language,
 that they may not understand one another's speech.
11:8 So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face
 of all the earth: and they left off to build the city.
11:9 Therefore is the name of it called Babel, because the LORD
 there confounded the language of all the earth: and from thence
 did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the
 earth.
11:10 These [are] the generations of Shem: Shem [was] a hundred
 years old, and begat Arphaxad two years after the flood:
11:11 And Shem lived after he begat Arphaxad five hundred years,
 and begat sons and daughters.
11:12 And Arphaxad lived five and thirty years, and begat Salah.
11:13 And Arphaxad lived after he begat Salah four hundred and
 three years, and begat sons and daughters.
11:14 And Salah lived thirty years, and begat Eber:
11:15 And Salah lived after he begat Eber four hundred and three
 years, and begat sons and daughters.
11:16 And Eber lived four and thirty years, and begat Peleg:
11:17 And Eber lived after he begat Peleg four hundred and
 thirty years, and begat sons and daughters.
11:18 And Peleg lived thirty years, and begat Reu:
11:19 And Peleg lived after he begat Reu two hundred and nine
 years, and begat sons and daughters.
11:20 And Reu lived two and thirty years, and begat Serug.
11:21 And Reu lived after he begat Serug two hundred and seven
 years, and begat sons and daughters.
11:22 And Serug lived thirty years, and begat Nahor:
11:23 And Serug lived after he begat Nahor two hundred years,
 and begat sons and daughters.
11:24 And Nahor lived nine and twenty years, and begat Terah.
11:25 And Nahor lived after he begat Terah a hundred and
 nineteen years, and begat sons and daughters.
11:26 And Terah lived seventy years, and begat Abram, Nahor, and
 Haran.
11:27 Now these [are] the generations of Terah: Terah begat
 Abram, Nahor, and Haran: and Haran begat Lot.
11:28 And Haran died before his father Terah, in the land of his
 nativity, in Ur of the Chaldees.
11:29 And Abram and Nahor took them wives: the name of Abram's
 wife [was] Sarai; and the name of Nahor's wife Milcah, the
 daughter of Haran, the father of Milcah, and the father of
 Iscah.
11:30 But Sarai [was] barren; she had no child.
11:31 And Terah took Abram his son, and Lot the son of Haran his
 son's son, and Sarai his daughter-in-law, his son Abram's wife;
 and they went forth with them from Ur of the Chaldees, to go
 into the land of Canaan; and they came to Haran, and dwelt
 there.
11:32 And the days of Terah were two hundred and five years: and
 Terah died in Haran.
