1 On the whole earth there was one language and one dialect.
2 Moving from the east, they found a plain in the land of Sennaar and settled there.
3 And they said to each other: we will make bricks and burn them with fire. And they began to have bricks instead of stones, and earthen tar instead of lime.
4 And they said: we will build for ourselves a city and a tower high to the skies, and we will make a name for ourselves before we scatter over the face of the whole earth.

5 And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower which the sons of man built.
6 And the Lord said: Behold, there is one people, and one has one tongue; and this is what they began to do, and they won’t lag behind what they intended to do;
7 let us go down and mix their language there, so that one does not understand the speech of the other.
eight And the Lord scattered them from there over the whole earth; and they stopped building the city.
nine Therefore, his name was given to him: Babylon, for there the Lord mixed the tongue of the whole earth, and from there the Lord scattered them throughout the whole earth.
