One language in the world.
Genesis 11:1 And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speach. Genesis 11:2 And it came to passe as they iourneyed from the East, that they found a plaine in the land of Shinar, and they dwelt there.
The building of Babel.
Genesis 11:3 And they sayd one to another; Goe to, let vs make bricke, and burne them thorowly. And they had bricke for stone, and slime had they for morter. Genesis 11:4 And they said; Goe to, let vs build vs a city and a tower, whose top may [reach] vnto heauen, and let vs make vs a name, lest we be scattered abroad vpon the face of the whole earth. Genesis 11:5 And the LORD came downe to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded.
The confusion of tongues.
Genesis 11:6 And the LORD said; Behold, the people [is] one, and they [haue] all one language: and this they begin to doe: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they haue imagined to doe. Genesis 11:7 Goe to, let vs go downe, and there cofound their language, that they may not vnderstand one anothers speech. Genesis 11:8 So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence, vpon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the Citie. Genesis 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 vpon the face of all the earth.
