Genesis: 11

The Tower of Babel.  Gn.11.1-9

1ONCE UPON A TIME all the world spoke a single language and used the same [Or used few] words. 2As men journeyed in the east, they came upon a plain in the land of Shinar and settled there. 3They said to one another, 'Come, let us make bricks and bake them hard'; they used bricks for stone and bitumen for mortar. 4'Come,' they said, 'let us build ourselves a city and a tower with its top in the heavens, and make a name for ourselves ; or we shall be dispersed all over the earth.' 5Then the LORD came down to see the city and tower which mortal men had built, 6and he said, 'Here they are, one people with a single language, and now they have started to do this; henceforward nothing they have a mind to do will be beyond their reach. 7Come, let us go down there and confuse their speech, so that they will not understand what they say to one another.' 8So the LORD dispersed them from there all over the earth, and they left off building the city. 9That is why it is called Babel [That is Babylon], because the LORD there made a babble Of the language of all the world; from that place the LORD scattered men all Over the face of the earth.
