1And the kol HaAretz was of one language and of devarim achadim (common words). 2And it came to pass, as they migrated from the east, that they found a plain in Eretz Shinar; and they dwelt there. 3And they said one to another, Come, let us make brick, and bake them thoroughly. And they had brick for even (stone), and bitumen had they for mortar. 4And they said, Come, let us build us an Ir and a Migdal, whose rosh (top) may reach unto Shomayim; and let us make us a shem, otherwise we shall be scattered abroad upon the face of kol HaAretz. 5And Hashem came down to see the Ir and the Migdal, which Bnei HaAdam built. 6And Hashem said, See, the Am is echad and they have all one language; and this they begin to do; and now nothing will be impossible for them, which they have proposed to do. 7Come, let Us go down, and there confuse their sefat, that they may not understand one another's language. 8So Hashem scattered them abroad from there upon the face of kol Ha'Aretz; and they left off building the Ir. 9Therefore is the shem of it called Babel; because Hashem did there confuse the language of kol Ha'Aretz; and from there did Hashem scatter them abroad upon the face of kol Ha'Aretz. 10These are the toldot of Shem: Shem was a hundred years old, and fathered Arpachshad two years after the mabbul; 11And Shem lived after he fathered Arpachshad five hundred shanah, and fathered banim and banot. 12And Arpachshad lived five and thirty shanah, and fathered Salah; 13And Arpachshad lived after he fathered Shelach four hundred and three shanim, and fathered banim and banot. 14And Shelach lived thirty shanah, and fathered Ever; 15And Shelach lived after he fathered Ever four hundred and three shanah, and fathered banim and banot. 16And Ever lived four and thirty shanah, and fathered Peleg; 17And Ever lived after he fathered Peleg four hundred and thirty shanah, and fathered banim and banot. 18And Peleg lived thirty shanah, and fathered Reu; 19And Peleg lived after he fathered Reu two hundred and nine shanim, and fathered banim and banot. 20And Reu lived two and thirty shanah, and fathered Serug; 21And Reu lived after he fathered Serug two hundred and seven shanim, and fathered banim and banot. 22And Serug lived thirty shanah, and fathered Nachor; 23And Serug lived after he fathered Nachor two hundred shanah, and fathered banim and banot. 24And Nachor lived nine and twenty shanah, and fathered Terach; 25And Nachor lived after he fathered Terach a hundred and nineteen shanah, and fathered banim and banot. 26And Terach lived seventy shanah, and fathered Avram, Nachor, and Haran. 27Now these are the toldot Terach: Terach fathered Avram, Nachor, and Haran; and Haran fathered Lot. 28And Haran died before his av Terach in the land of his birth, in Ur Kasdim. 29And Avram and Nachor took them nashim: the shem eshet Avram was Sarai; and the shem eshet Nachor was Milcah, the bat Haran Avi Milcah, and Avi Yiskah. 30But Sarai was barren; she had no child. 31And Terach took Avram bno, and ben bno Lot ben Haran, and Sarai his kallah, eshet Avram bno; and they went forth with them from Ur Kasdim, to go into Eretz Kena'an; and they came unto Charan (Haran), and dwelt there. 32And the days of Terach were two hundred and five shanim; and Terach died in Charan (Haran).

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.
