Genesis 11

CHAPTER 11

Tower of Confusion

And [4was 1all 2the 3earth 6lip 5one], and [2voice 1one] to all. And it came to pass in their moving from the east, they found a plain in the land of Shinar, and they dwelt there. And [2said 1a man] to his neighbor, Come let us make bricks, and let us bake them in fire. And [3became 4to them 1the 2brick] as stone, and asphalt was their mortar. And they said, Come let us build to ourselves a city and tower of which the top will be unto the heaven. And let us make to ourselves a name before the being scattered upon the face of all the earth. And the  lord went down to look at the city and the tower, which [4built 1the 2sons 3of men]. And the  lord said, Behold, there is [2kind 1one] and [2lip 1one] for all, and this they began to do. The things now shall not fail from them, all as much as they might attempt to do. Come, and going down, let us confound their language, that they should not [2hearken to 1each] the voice of the neighbor. And the  lord scattered them from there upon the face of all the earth; and they ceased building the city and the tower. On account of this [4was called 1the 2name 3of it] Confusion, because there the  lord confounded the lips of all the earth, and from there [3scattered 4them 1the 2  lord] upon the face of all the earth.
