11:1 And the whole earth was of one [language], [and of one speech].
11:2 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.
11:3 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 [mortar].
11:4 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.
11:5 And [the LORD came down] to see the [city] and the [tower], which [the children of men] builded.
11:6 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.
11:7 Go to, [let us go down], and there [confound their language], that they may not understand [one another's speech].
11:8 So [the LORD scattered them] abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they [left off] to build [the city].
11:9 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].
11:10 These are the generations of Shem: Shem was an hundred years old, and begat [Arphaxad] [two years after the flood]: 11:11 And Shem lived after he begat Arphaxad five hundred years, [and begat sons and daughters].
11:12 And Arphaxad lived five and thirty years, and begat [Salah]: 11:13 And Arphaxad lived after he begat Salah four hundred and three years, [and begat sons and daughters].
11:14 And Salah lived thirty years, and begat [Eber]: 11:15 And Salah lived after he begat Eber four hundred and three years, [and begat sons and daughters].
11:16 And Eber lived four and thirty years, and begat [Peleg]: 11:17 And Eber lived after he begat Peleg four hundred and thirty years, [and begat sons and daughters].
11:18 And Peleg lived thirty years, and begat [Reu]: 11:19 And Peleg lived after he begat Reu two hundred and nine years, [and begat sons and daughters].
11:20 And Reu lived two and thirty years, and begat [Serug]: 11:21 And Reu lived after he begat Serug two hundred and seven years, [and begat sons and daughters].
11:22 And Serug lived thirty years, and begat [Nahor]: 11:23 And Serug lived after he begat Nahor two hundred years, [and begat sons and daughters].
11:24 And Nahor lived nine and twenty years, and begat [Terah]: 11:25 And Nahor lived after he begat Terah an hundred and nineteen years, [and begat sons and daughters].
11:26 And Terah lived seventy years, and begat [Abram], [Nahor], and [Haran].
11:27 Now these are the generations of Terah: Terah begat Abram, Nahor, and Haran; and Haran begat [Lot].
11:28 And Haran died before his father Terah in [the land] of his [nativity], in [Ur] of the [Chaldees].
11:29 And Abram and Nahor took them wives: 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].
11:30 But Sarai was [barren]; she had no [child].
11:31 And 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.
11:32 And the days of Terah were two hundred and five years: and Terah died in Haran.
