Bible: Gen 11:1-4

The Dispersion of the Nations at Babel

11:1 The whole earth 1  had a common language and a common vocabulary. 2  11:2 When the people 3  moved eastward, 4  they found a plain in Shinar 5  and settled there. 11:3 Then they said to one another, 6 Come, let’s make bricks and bake them thoroughly.” 7  (They had brick instead of stone and tar 8  instead of mortar.) 9  11:4 Then they said, “Come, let’s build ourselves a city and a tower with its top in the heavens 10  so that 11  we may make a name for ourselves. Otherwise 12  we will be scattered 13  across the face of the entire earth.”
