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.

1 AND THE whole earth was of one language and of one accent and mode of expression.
2 And as they journeyed eastward, they found a plain (valley) in the land of Shinar, and they settled and dwelt there.
3 And they said one to another, Come, let us make bricks and burn them thoroughly. So they had brick for stone, and slime (bitumen) for mortar.
4 And they said, Come, let us build us a city and a tower whose top reaches into the sky, and let us make a name for ourselves, lest we be scattered over the whole earth.
5 And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower which the sons of men 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 now nothing they have imagined they can do will be impossible for them.
7 Come, let Us go down and there confound (mix up, confuse) their language, that they may not understand one another's speech.
8 So the Lord scattered them abroad from that place upon the face of the whole earth, and they gave up building the city.
9 Therefore the name of it was called Babel–because there the Lord confounded the language of all the earth; and from that place the Lord scattered them abroad upon the face of the whole earth.
10 This is the history of the generations of Shem. Shem was 100 years old when he became the father of Arpachshad, two years after the flood.
11 And Shem lived after Arpachshad was born 500 years and had other sons and daughters.
12 When Arpachshad had lived 35 years, he became the father of Shelah.
13 Arpachshad lived after Shelah was born 403 years and had other sons and daughters.
14 When Shelah had lived 30 years, he became the father of Eber.
15 Shelah lived after Eber was born 403 years and had other sons and daughters.
16 When Eber had lived 34 years, he became the father of Peleg.
17 And Eber lived after Peleg was born 430 years and had other sons and daughters.
18 When Peleg had lived 30 years, he became the father of Reu.
19 And Peleg lived after Reu was born 209 years and had other sons and daughters.
20 When Reu had lived 32 years, he became the father of Serug.
21 And Reu lived after Serug was born 207 years and had other sons and daughters.
22 When Serug had lived 30 years, he became the father of Nahor.
23 And Serug lived after Nahor was born 200 years and had other sons and daughters.
24 When Nahor had lived 29 years, he became the father of Terah.
25 And Nahor lived after Terah was born 119 years and had other sons and daughters.
26 After Terah had lived 70 years, he became the father of [at different times], Abram and Nahor and Haran, [his firstborn].
27 Now this is the history of the descendants of Terah. Terah was the father of Abram, Nahor, and Haran; and Haran was the father of Lot.
28 Haran died before his father Terah [died] in the land of his birth, in Ur of the Chaldees.
29 And Abram and Nahor took wives. The name of Abram's wife was Sarai, and the name of Nahor's wife was Milcah, the daughter of Haran the father of Milcah and Iscah.
30 But Sarai was barren; she had no child.
31 And Terah took Abram his son, Lot the son of Haran, his grandson, and Sarai his daughter-in-law, his son Abram's wife, and they went forth together to go from Ur of the Chaldees into the land of Canaan; but when they came to Haran, they settled there.
32 And Terah lived 205 years; and Terah died in Haran.
