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

1Then the whole earth was of one language and one speache. 2And as they went from the East, they found a plaine in the land of Shinar, and there they abode. 3And they said one to another, Come, let vs make bricke, and burne it in the fire. So they had bricke for stone, and slime had they in steade of morter. 4Also they said, Goe to, let vs builde vs a citie and a towre, whose top may reache vnto the heauen, that we may get vs a name, lest we be scattered vpon the whole earth. 5But the Lord came downe, to see the citie and towre, which the sonnes of men builded. 6And the Lord said, Beholde, the people is one, and they all haue one language, and this they begin to doe, neither can they now be stopped from whatsoeuer they haue imagined to do. 7Come on, let vs goe downe, and there confound their language, that euery one perceiue not anothers speache. 8So ye Lord scattered them from thence vpon all the earth, and they left off to build the citie. 9Therefore the name of it was called Babel, because the Lord did there confounde the language of all the earth: from thence then did the Lord scatter them vpon all the earth. 10These are the generations of Shem: Shem was an hundreth yeere olde, and begate Arpachshad two yeere after the flood. 11And Shem liued, after he begate Arpachshad, fiue hundreth yeeres, and begate sonnes and daughters. 12Also Arpachshad liued fiue and thirtie yeeres, and begate Shelah. 13And Arpachshad liued, after he begate Shelah, foure hundreth and three yeeres, and begate sonnes and daughters. 14And Shelah liued thirtie yeeres, and begat Eber. 15So Shelah liued, after he begat Eber, foure hundreth and three yeeres, and begat sonnes and daughters. 16Likewise Eber liued foure and thirtie yeres, and begate Peleg. 17So Eber liued, after he begate Peleg, foure hundreth and thirtie yeeres, and begate sonnes and daughters 18And Peleg liued thirtie yeeres, and begate Reu. 19And Peleg liued, after he begate Reu, two hundreth and nine yeeres, and begate sonnes and daughters. 20Also Reu liued two and thirtie yeeres, and begate Serug. 21So Reu liued, after he begate Serug, two hundreth and seuen yeeres, and begate sonnes and daughters. 22Moreouer Serug liued thirtie yeeres, and begate Nahor. 23And Serug liued, after he begate Nahor, two hundreth yeeres, and begate sonnes and daughters. 24And Nahor liued nine and twentie yeeres, and begate Terah. 25So Nahor liued, after he begate Terah, an hundreth and nineteene yeeres, and begat sonnes and daughters. 26So Terah liued seuentie yeeres, and begate Abram, Nahor, and Haran. 27Nowe these are the generations of Terah: Terah begate Abram, Nahor, and Haran: and Haran begate Lot. 28Then Haran died before Terah his father in the land of his natiuitie, in Vr of the Caldees. 29So Abram and Nahor tooke them wiues. The name of Abrams wife was Sarai, and the name of Nahors wife Milcah, the daughter of Haran, the father of Milcah, and the father of Iscah. 30But Sarai was barren, and had no childe. 31Then Terah tooke Abram his sonne, and Lot the sonne of Haran, his sonnes sonne, and Sarai his daughter in lawe, his sonne Abrams wife: and they departed together from Vr of the Caldees, to goe into the land of Canaan, and they came to Haran, and dwelt there. 32So the dayes of Terah were two hundreth and fiue yeeres, and Terah died in Haran.
