Genesis

Chapter 11

Septuagint Masoretic

11:1 And all the earth was one lip, and there was one language to all.

11:2 And it came to pass as they moved from the east, they found a plain in the land of Senaar, and they dwelt there.

11:3 And a man said to his neighbour, Come, let us make bricks and bake them with fire. And the brick was to them for stone, and their mortar was bitumen.

11:4 And they said, Come, let us build to ourselves a city and tower, whose top shall be to heaven, and let us make to ourselves a name, before we are scattered abroad upon the face of all the earth.

11:5 And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the sons of men built.

11:6 And the Lord said, Behold, [there is] one race, and one lip of all, and they have begun to do this, and now nothing shall fail from them of all that they may have undertaken to do.

11:7 Come, and having gone down let us there confound their tongue, that they may not understand each the voice of his neighbour.

11:8 And the Lord scattered them thence over the face of all the earth, and they left off building the city and the tower.

11:9 On this account its name was called Confusion, because there the Lord confounded the languages of all the earth, and thence the Lord scattered them upon the face of all the earth.

11:10 And these [are] the generations of Sem: and Sem was a hundred years old when he begot Arphaxad, the second year after the flood.

11:11 And Sem lived, after he had begotten Arphaxad, five hundred years, and begot sons and daughters, and died.

11:12 And Arphaxad lived a hundred and thirty-five years, and begot Cainan.

11:13 And Arphaxad lived after he had begotten Cainan, four hundred years, and begot sons and daughters, and died. And Cainan lived a hundred and thirty years and begot Sala; and Canaan lived after he had begotten Sala, three hundred and thirty years, and begot sons and daughters, and died.

11:14 And Sala lived an hundred and thirty years, and begot Heber.

11:15 And Sala lived after he had begotten Heber, three hundred and thirty years, and begot sons and daughters, and died.

11:16 And Heber lived an hundred and thirty-four years, and begot Phaleg.

11:17 And Heber lived after he had begotten Phaleg two hundred and seventy years, and begot sons and daughters, and died.

11:18 And Phaleg lived and hundred and thirty years, and begot Ragau.

11:19 And Phaleg lived after he had begotten Ragau, two hundred and nine years, and begot sons and daughters, and died.

11:20 And Ragau lived and hundred thirty and two years, and begot Seruch.

11:21 And Raau lived after he had begotten Seruch, two hundred and seven years, and begot sons and daughters, and died.

11:22 And Seruch lived a hundred and thirty years, and begot Nachor.

11:23 And Seruch lived after he had begotten Nachor, two hundred years, and begot sons and daughters, and died.

11:24 And Nachor lived a hundred and seventy-nine years, and begot Tharrha.

11:25 And Nachor lived after he had begotten Tharrha, an hundred and twenty-five years, and begot sons and daughters, and he died.

11:26 And Tharrha lived seventy years, and begot Abram, and Nachor, and Arrhan.

11:27 And these [re] the generations of Tharrha. Tharrha begot Abram and Nachor, and Arrhan; and Arrhan begot Lot.

11:28 And Arrhan died in the presence of Tharrha his father, in the land in which he was born, in the country of the Chaldees.

11:29 And Abram and Nachor took to themselves wives, the name of the wife of Abram was Sara, and the name of the wife of Nachor, Malcha, daughter of Arrhan, and he was the father of Malcha, the father of Jescha.

11:30 And Sara was barren, and did not bear children.

11:31 And Tharrha took Abram his son, and Lot the son Arrhan, the son of his son, and Sara his daughter-in-law, the wife of Abram his son, and led them forth out of the land of the Chaldees, to go into the land of Chanaan, and they came as far as Charrhan, and he dwelt there.

11:32 And all the days of Tharrha in the land of Charrhan were two hundred and five years, and Tharrha died in Charrhan.

11:1 And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech.

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.

11:3 And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for mortar.

11:4 And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.

11:5 And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded.

11:6 And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.

11:7 Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech.

11:8 So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city.

11:9 Therefore 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 upon the face of all the earth.

11:10 These are the generations of Shem: Shem was an hundred years old, and begat Arphaxad two years after the flood:

11:11 And Shem lived after he begat Arphaxad five hundred years, and begat sons and daughters.

11:12 And Arphaxad lived five and thirty years, and begat Salah:

11:13 And Arphaxad lived after he begat Salah four hundred and three years, and begat sons and daughters.

11:14 And Salah lived thirty years, and begat Eber:

11:15 And Salah lived after he begat Eber four hundred and three years, and begat sons and daughters.

11:16 And Eber lived four and thirty years, and begat Peleg:

11:17 And Eber lived after he begat Peleg four hundred and thirty years, and begat sons and daughters.

11:18 And Peleg lived thirty years, and begat Reu:

11:19 And Peleg lived after he begat Reu two hundred and nine years, and begat sons and daughters.

11:20 And Reu lived two and thirty years, and begat Serug:

11:21 And Reu lived after he begat Serug two hundred and seven years, and begat sons and daughters.

11:22 And Serug lived thirty years, and begat Nahor:

11:23 And Serug lived after he begat Nahor two hundred years, and begat sons and daughters.

11:24 And Nahor lived nine and twenty years, and begat Terah:

11:25 And Nahor lived after he begat Terah an hundred and nineteen years, and begat sons and daughters.

11:26 And Terah lived seventy years, and begat Abram, Nahor, and Haran.

11:27 Now these are the generations of Terah: Terah begat Abram, Nahor, and Haran; and Haran begat Lot.

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

11:29 And Abram and Nahor took them 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.

11:30 But Sarai was barren; she had no child.

11:31 And Terah took Abram his son, and Lot the son of Haran his son's son, and Sarai his daughter in law, his son Abram's wife; and they went forth with them from Ur of the Chaldees, to go into the land of Canaan; and they came unto Haran, and dwelt there.

11:32 And the days of Terah were two hundred and five years: and Terah died in Haran.
