001:011:001
And the whole earth was of one language,
and of one speech.


001:011:002
And it came to pass,
as they journeyed from the east,
that they found a plain in the land of Shinar;
and they dwelt there.


001:011:003
And they said one to another,
Go to,
let us make brick,
and burn them thoroughly.
And they had brick for stone,
and slime had they for morter.


001:011:004
And 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.


001:011:005
And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower,
which the children of men builded.


001:011:006
And the LORD said,
Behold,
the people is one,
and they have all one language;
and this they begin to do:
and now nothing will be restrained from them,
which they have imagined to do.


001:011:007
Go to,
let us go down,
and there confound their language,
that they may not understand one another's speech.


001:011:008
So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth:
and they left off to build the city.


001:011:009
Therefore is the name of it called Babel;
because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth:
and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.
