Genesis 11:3 And they said one to another, Come, let vs make bricke, and burne it in the fire. So they had bricke for stone, and slyme had they in steade of morter.

Genesis 11:5 But the Lord came downe, to see the citie and towre, which the sonnes of men builded.
The confusion of tongues.
Genesis 11:6 And the Lord said, Beholde, the people is one, and they all haue one language, and this they begin to doe, neither can they now be stopped from whatsoeuer they haue imagined to do. Genesis 11:7 Come on, let vs goe downe, and there confound their language, that euery one perceiue not anothers speache. Genesis 11:8 So ye Lord scattered them from thence vpon all the earth, & they left off to build the citie. Genesis 11:9 Therefore the name of it was called Babel, because the Lorde did there confounde the language of all the earth: from thence then did the Lord scatter them vpon all the earth.
