Genesis 11:1-9

And the whole earth
<0776>
was of one
<0259>
language
<08193>_,
and of one
<0259>
speech
<01697>_.
{language: Heb. lip.} {speech: Heb. words}
And it came to pass, as they journeyed
<05265> (8800)
from the east
<06924>_,
that they found
<04672> (8799)
a plain
<01237>
in the land
<0776>
of Shinar
<08152>_;
and they dwelt
<03427> (8799)
there. {from...: or, eastward}
And they said
<0559> (8799)
one
<0376>
to another
<07453>_,
Go to
<03051> (8798)_,
let us make
<03835> (8799)
brick
<03843>_,
and burn
<08313> (8799)
them throughly
<08316>_.
And they had brick
<03843>
for stone
<068>_,
and slime
<02564>
had
<01961> (8804)
they for morter
<02563>_.
{they said...: Heb. a man said to his neighbour} {burn...: Heb. burn them to a burning}
And they said
<0559> (8799)_,
Go to
<03051> (8798)_,
let us build
<01129> (8799)
us a city
<05892>
and a tower
<04026>_,
whose top
<07218>
[may reach] unto heaven
<08064>_;
and let us make
<06213> (8799)
us a name
<08034>_,
lest we be scattered abroad
<06327> (8799)
upon the face
<06440>
of the whole earth
<0776>_.
And the LORD
<03068>
came down
<03381> (8799)
to see
<07200> (8800)
the city
<05892>
and the tower
<04026>_,
which the children
<01121>
of men
<0120>
builded
<01129> (8804)_.
And the LORD
<03068>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
Behold, the people
<05971>
[is] one
<0259>_,
and they have all one
<0259>
language
<08193>_;
and this they begin
<02490> (8687)
to do
<06213> (8800)_:
and now nothing
<03808> <03605>
will be restrained
<01219> (8735)
from them, which they have imagined
<02161> (8799)
to do
<06213> (8800)_.
Go to
<03051> (8798)_,
let us go down
<03381> (8799)_,
and there confound
<01101> (8799)
their language
<08193>_,
that
<0834>
they may not understand
<08085> (8799)
one
<0376>
another's
<07453>
speech
<08193>_.
So the LORD
<03068>
scattered them abroad
<06327> (8686)
from thence
<08033>
upon the face
<06440>
of all the earth
<0776>_:
and they left off
<02308> (8799)
to build
<01129> (8800)
the city
<05892>_.
Therefore is the name of it
<08034>
called
<07121> (8804)
Babel
<0894>_;
because the LORD
<03068>
did there confound
<01101> (8804)
the language
<08193>
of all the earth
<0776>_:
and from thence did
<06327> (0)
the LORD
<03068>
scatter them abroad
<06327> (8689)
upon the face
<06440>
of all the earth
<0776>_.
{Babel: that is, Confusion}
