Genesis 11

[1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12] [13] [14] [15] [16] [17] [18] [19] [20] [21] [22] [23] [24] [25] [26] [27] [28] [29] [30] [31] [32] [33] [34] [35] [36] [37] [38] [39] [40] [41] [42] [43] [44] [45] [46] [47] [48] [49] [50]

11:1 And all the earth had one language and one tongue.

11:2 And it came about that in their wandering from the east, they came to a stretch of flat country in the land of Shinar, and there they made their living-place.

11:3 And they said one to another, Come, let us make bricks, burning them well. And they had bricks for stone, putting them together with sticky earth.

11:4 And they said, Come, let us make a town, and a tower whose top will go up as high as heaven; and let us make a great name for ourselves, so that we may not be wanderers over the face of the earth.

11:5 And the Lord came down to see the town and the tower which the children of men were building.

11:6 And the Lord said, See, they are all one people and have all one language; and this is only the start of what they may do: and now it will not be possible to keep them from any purpose of theirs.

11:7 Come, let us go down and take away the sense of their language, so that they will not be able to make themselves clear to one another.

11:8 So the Lord God sent them away into every part of the earth: and they gave up building their town.

11:9 So it was named Babel, because there the Lord took away the sense of all languages and from there the Lord sent them away over all the face of the earth.

11:10 These are the generations of Shem. Shem was a hundred years old when he became the father of Arpachshad, two years after the great flow of waters;

11:11 And after the birth of Arpachshad, Shem went on living for five hundred years, and had sons and daughters:

11:12 And Arpachshad was thirty-five years old when he became the father of Shelah:

11:13 And after the birth of Shelah, Arpachshad went on living for four hundred and three years, and had sons and daughters:

11:14 And Shelah was thirty years old when he became the father of Eber:

11:15 And after the birth of Eber, Shelah went on living for four hundred and three years, and had sons and daughters:

11:16 And Eber was thirty-four years old when he became the father of Peleg:

11:17 And after the birth of Peleg, Eber went on living for four hundred and thirty years, and had sons and daughters:

11:18 And Peleg was thirty years old when he became the father of Reu:

11:19 And after the birth of Reu, Peleg went on living for two hundred and nine years, and had sons and daughters:

11:20 And Reu was thirty-two years old when he became the father of Serug:

11:21 And after the birth of Serug, Reu went on living for two hundred and seven years, and had sons and daughters:

11:22 And Serug was thirty years old when he became the father of Nahor:

11:23 And after the birth of Nahor, Serug went on living for two hundred years, and had sons and daughters:

11:24 And Nahor was twenty-nine years old when he became the father of Terah:

11:25 And after the birth of Terah, Nahor went on living for a hundred and nineteen years, and had sons and daughters:

11:26 And Terah was seventy years old when he became the father of Abram, Nahor, and Haran.

11:27 These are the generations of Terah: Terah was the father of Abram, Nahor, and Haran; and Haran was the father of Lot.

11:28 And death came to Haran when he was with his father Terah in the land of his birth, Ur of the Chaldees.

11:29 And Abram and Nahor took wives for themselves: 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.

11:30 And Sarai had no child.

11:31 And Terah took Abram, his son, and Lot, the son of Haran, and Sarai, his daughter-in-law, the wife of his son Abram and they went out from Ur of the Chaldees, to go to the land of Canaan; and they came to Haran, and were there for some time.

11:32 And all the years of Terah's life were two hundred and five: and Terah came to his end in Haran.
