Genesis 11:1

1And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speach.
2And it came to passe as they iourneyed from the East, that they found a
plaine in the land of Shinar, and they dwelt there.
3And 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.
4And 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.
5And the LORD came downe to see the city and the tower, which the
children of men builded.
6And 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.
7Goe to, let vs go downe, and there cōfound their language, that they may
not vnderstand one anothers speech.
8So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence, vpon the face of all the
earth: and they left off to build the Citie.
9Therefore 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.
