Genesis 11

11
1And the earth was of one tongue, and of the same speech.
2And when they removed from the east, they found a plain in the land of Sennaar, and dwelt in it.
3And each one said to his neighbour: Come, let us make brick, and bake them with fire. And they had brick instead of stones, and slime instead of mortar.
4And they said: Come, let us make a city and a tower, the top whereof may reach to heaven: and let us make our name famous, before we be scattered abroad into all lands.
5And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of Adam were building.
6And he said: Behold, it is one people, and all have one tongue: and they have begun to do this, neither will they leave off from their designs, till they accomplish them in deed.
7Come ye, therefore, let us go down, and there confound their tongue, that they may not understand one another's speech.
8And so the Lord scattered them from that place into all lands, and they ceased to build the city.
9And therefore the name thereof was called Babel, because there the language of the whole earth was confounded: and from thence the Lord scattered them abroad upon the face of all countries.
10These are the generations of Sem. Sem was a hundred years old when he begot Arphaxad, two years after the flood.
11And Sem lived after he begot Arphaxad, five hundred years; and begot sons and daughters.
12And Arphaxad lived thirty-five years, and begot Sale.
13And Arphaxad lived after he begot Sale, three hundred and three years; and begot sons and daughters.
14Sale also lived thirty years, and begot Heber.
15And Sale lived after he begot Heber, four hundred and three years; and begot sons and daughters.
16And Heber lived thirty-four years, and begot Phaleg.
17And Heber lived after he begot Phaleg, four hundred and thirty years; and begot sons and daughters.
18Phaleg also lived thirty years, and begot Reu.
19And Phaleg lived after he begot Reu, two hundred and nine years; and begot sons and daughters.
20And Reu lived thirty-two years, and begot Sarug.
21And Reu lived after he begot Sarug, two hundred and seven years; and begot sons and daughters.
22And Sarug lived thirty years, and begot Nachor.
23And Sarug lived after he begot Nachor, two hundred years; and begot sons and daughters.
24And Nachor lived nine and twenty years, and begot Thare.
25And Nachor lived after he begot Thare, a hundred and nineteen years; and begot sons and daughters.
26And Thare lived seventy years, and begot Abra, and Nachor, and Aran.
27And these are the generations of Thare: Thare begot Abram, Nachor, and Aran. And Aran begot Lot.
28And Aran died before Thare his father, in the land of his nativity in Ur of the Chaldees.
29And Abram and Nachor married wives: the name of Abram's wife was Sarai: and the name of Nachor's wife, Melcha, the daughter of Aran, father of Melcha, and father of Jescha.
30And Sarai was barren, and had no children.
31And Thare took Abram, his son, and Lot the son of Aran, his son's son, and Sarai his daughter-in-law, the wife of Abram his son; and brought them out of Ur of the Chaldees, to go into the land of Chanaan. And they came as far as Haran, and dwelt there.
32And the days of Thare were two hundred and five years: and he died in Haran.

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).
