Genesis 11

[1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12] [13] [14] [15] [16] [17] [18] [19] [20] [21] [22] [23] [24] [25] [26] [27] [28] [29] [30] [31] [32] [33] [34] [35] [36] [37] [38] [39] [40] [41] [42] [43] [44] [45] [46] [47] [48] [49] [50]

GEN 11:1 The whole earth was of one language and of one speech.

GEN 11:2 It happened, as they traveled east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they lived there.

GEN 11:3 They said one to another, "Come, let's make brick, and burn them thoroughly." They had brick for stone, and they used tar for mortar.

GEN 11:4 They said, "Come, let's build us a city, and a tower, whose top reaches to the sky, and let's make us a name; lest we be scattered abroad on the surface of the whole earth."

GEN 11:5 Yahweh came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men built.

GEN 11:6 Yahweh said, "Behold, they are one people, and they have all one language; and this is what they begin to do. Now nothing will be withheld from them, which they intend to do.

GEN 11:7 Come, let's go down, and there confuse their language, that they may not understand one another's speech."

GEN 11:8 So Yahweh scattered them abroad from there on the surface of all the earth. They stopped building the city.

GEN 11:9 Therefore the name of it was called Babel, because Yahweh confused the language of all the earth, there. From there, Yahweh scattered them abroad on the surface of all the earth.

GEN 11:10 This is the history of the generations of Shem. Shem was one hundred years old, and became the father of Arpachshad two years after the flood.

GEN 11:11 Shem lived after he became the father of Arpachshad five hundred years, and became the father of sons and daughters.

GEN 11:12 Arpachshad lived thirty-five years, and became the father of Shelah.

GEN 11:13 Arpachshad lived after he became the father of Shelah four hundred three years, and became the father of sons and daughters.

GEN 11:14 Shelah lived thirty years, and became the father of Eber:

GEN 11:15 and Shelah lived after he became the father of Eber four hundred three years, and became the father of sons and daughters.

GEN 11:16 Eber lived thirty-four years, and became the father of Peleg.

GEN 11:17 Eber lived after he became the father of Peleg four hundred thirty years, and became the father of sons and daughters.

GEN 11:18 Peleg lived thirty years, and became the father of Reu.

GEN 11:19 Peleg lived after he became the father of Reu two hundred nine years, and became the father of sons and daughters.

GEN 11:20 Reu lived thirty-two years, and became the father of Serug.

GEN 11:21 Reu lived after he became the father of Serug two hundred seven years, and became the father of sons and daughters.

GEN 11:22 Serug lived thirty years, and became the father of Nahor.

GEN 11:23 Serug lived after he became the father of Nahor two hundred years, and became the father of sons and daughters.

GEN 11:24 Nahor lived twenty-nine years, and became the father of Terah.

GEN 11:25 Nahor lived after he became the father of Terah one hundred nineteen years, and became the father of sons and daughters.

GEN 11:26 Terah lived seventy years, and became the father of Abram, Nahor, and Haran.

GEN 11:27 Now this is the history of the generations of Terah. Terah became the father of Abram, Nahor, and Haran. Haran became the father of Lot.

GEN 11:28 Haran died before his father Terah in the land of his birth, in Ur of the Chaldees.

GEN 11:29 Abram and Nahor took wives. The name of Abram's wife was Sarai, and the name of Nahor's wife, Milcah, the daughter of Haran who was also the father of Iscah.

GEN 11:30 Sarai was barren. She had no child.

GEN 11:31 Terah took Abram his son, Lot the son of Haran, his son's son, and Sarai his daughter-in-law, his son Abram's wife. They went forth from Ur of the Chaldees, to go into the land of Canaan. They came to Haran, and lived there.

GEN 11:32 The days of Terah were two hundred five years. Terah died in Haran.
