Chapter 11

GEN.11:1 Now the whole earth had one language and one speech.
GEN.11:2 And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar, and they dwelt there.
GEN.11:3 Then they said to one another, “Come, let us make bricks and bake them thoroughly.” They had brick for stone, and they had asphalt for mortar.
GEN.11:4 And they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city, and a tower whose top is in the heavens; let us make a name for ourselves, lest we be scattered abroad over the face of the whole earth.”
GEN.11:5 But the LORD came down to see the city and the tower which the sons of men had built.
GEN.11:6 And the LORD said, “Indeed the people are one and they all have one language, and this is what they begin to do; now nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from them.
GEN.11:7 “Come, let Us go down and there confuse their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.”
GEN.11:8 So the LORD scattered them abroad from there over the face of all the earth, and they ceased building the city.
GEN.11:9 Therefore its name is called Babel, because there the LORD confused the language of all the earth; and from there the LORD scattered them abroad over the face of all the earth.
GEN.11:10 This is the genealogy of Shem: Shem was one hundred years old, and begot Arphaxad two years after the flood.
GEN.11:11 After he begot Arphaxad, Shem lived five hundred years, and begot sons and daughters.
GEN.11:12 Arphaxad lived thirty-five years, and begot Salah.
GEN.11:13 After he begot Salah, Arphaxad lived four hundred and three years, and begot sons and daughters.
GEN.11:14 Salah lived thirty years, and begot Eber.
GEN.11:15 After he begot Eber, Salah lived four hundred and three years, and begot sons and daughters.
GEN.11:16 Eber lived thirty-four years, and begot Peleg.
GEN.11:17 After he begot Peleg, Eber lived four hundred and thirty years, and begot sons and daughters.
GEN.11:18 Peleg lived thirty years, and begot Reu.
GEN.11:19 After he begot Reu, Peleg lived two hundred and nine years, and begot sons and daughters.
GEN.11:20 Reu lived thirty-two years, and begot Serug.
GEN.11:21 After he begot Serug, Reu lived two hundred and seven years, and begot sons and daughters.
GEN.11:22 Serug lived thirty years, and begot Nahor.
GEN.11:23 After he begot Nahor, Serug lived two hundred years, and begot sons and daughters.
GEN.11:24 Nahor lived twenty-nine years, and begot Terah.
GEN.11:25 After he begot Terah, Nahor lived one hundred and nineteen years, and begot sons and daughters.
GEN.11:26 Now Terah lived seventy years, and begot Abram, Nahor, and Haran.
GEN.11:27 This is the genealogy of Terah: Terah begot Abram, Nahor, and Haran. Haran begot Lot.
GEN.11:28 And Haran died before his father Terah in his native land, in Ur of the Chaldeans.
GEN.11:29 Then 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 the father of Milcah and the father of Iscah.
GEN.11:30 But Sarai was barren; she had no child.
GEN.11:31 And Terah took his son Abram and his grandson Lot, the son of Haran, and his daughter-in-law Sarai, his son Abram’s wife, and they went out with them from Ur of the Chaldeans to go to the land of Canaan; and they came to Haran and dwelt there.
GEN.11:32 So the days of Terah were two hundred and five years, and Terah died in Haran.
