Genesis 11 Text (WEB)
  1. The whole earth was of one language and of one speech.
  2. It happened, as they traveled east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar, and they lived there.
  3. They said one to another, "Come, let's make bricks, and burn them thoroughly." They had brick for stone, and they used tar for mortar.
  4. They said, "Come, let's build ourselves a city, and a tower whose top reaches to the sky, and let's make ourselves a name, lest we be scattered abroad on the surface of the whole earth."
  5. Yahweh came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men built.
  6. Yahweh said, "Behold, they are one people, and they have all one language, and this is what they begin to do. Now nothing will be withheld from them, which they intend to do.
  7. Come, let's go down, and there confuse their language, that they may not understand one another's speech."
  8. So Yahweh scattered them abroad from there on the surface of all the earth. They stopped building the city.
  9. Therefore its name was called Babel, because there Yahweh confused the language of all the earth. From there, Yahweh scattered them abroad on the surface of all the earth.
  10. This is the history of the generations of Shem. Shem was one hundred years old and became the father of Arpachshad two years after the flood.
  11. Shem lived five hundred years after he became the father of Arpachshad, and became the father of sons and daughters.
  12. Arpachshad lived thirty-five years and became the father of Shelah.
  13. Arpachshad lived four hundred three years after he became the father of Shelah, and became the father of sons and daughters.
  14. Shelah lived thirty years, and became the father of Eber:
  15. and Shelah lived four hundred three years after he became the father of Eber, and became the father of sons and daughters.
  16. Eber lived thirty-four years, and became the father of Peleg.
  17. Eber lived four hundred thirty years after he became the father of Peleg, and became the father of sons and daughters.
  18. Peleg lived thirty years, and became the father of Reu.
  19. Peleg lived two hundred nine years after he became the father of Reu, and became the father of sons and daughters.
  20. Reu lived thirty-two years, and became the father of Serug.
  21. Reu lived two hundred seven years after he became the father of Serug, and became the father of sons and daughters.
  22. Serug lived thirty years, and became the father of Nahor.
  23. Serug lived two hundred years after he became the father of Nahor, and became the father of sons and daughters.
  24. Nahor lived twenty-nine years, and became the father of Terah.
  25. Nahor lived one hundred nineteen years after he became the father of Terah, and became the father of sons and daughters.
  26. Terah lived seventy years, and became the father of Abram, Nahor, and Haran.
  27. Now this is the history of the generations of Terah. Terah became the father of Abram, Nahor, and Haran. Haran became the father of Lot.
  28. Haran died before his father Terah in the land of his birth, in Ur of the Chaldees.
  29. 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 who was also the father of Iscah.
  30. Sarai was barren. She had no child.
  31. Terah took Abram his son, Lot the son of Haran, his son's son, and Sarai his daughter-in-law, his son Abram's wife. They went forth from Ur of the Chaldees, to go into the land of Canaan. They came to Haran and lived there.
  32. The days of Terah were two hundred five years. Terah died in Haran.

Genesis 11 Text (Latin)
  1. Erat autem terra labii unius, et sermonum eorumdem.
  2. Cumque proficiscerentur de oriente, invenerunt campum in terra Senaar, et habitaverunt in eo.
  3. Dixitque alter ad proximum suum : Venite, faciamus lateres, et coquamus eos igni. Habueruntque lateres pro saxis, et bitumen pro cæmento :
  4. et dixerunt : Venite, faciamus nobis civitatem et turrim, cujus culmen pertingat ad cælum : et celebremus nomen nostrum antequam dividamur in universas terras.
  5. Descendit autem Dominus ut videret civitatem et turrim, quam ædificabant filii Adam,
  6. et dixit : Ecce, unus est populus, et unum labium omnibus : cœperuntque hoc facere, nec desistent a cogitationibus suis, donec eas opere compleant.
  7. Venite igitur, descendamus, et confundamus ibi linguam eorum, ut non audiat unusquisque vocem proximi sui.
  8. Atque ita divisit eos Dominus ex illo loco in universas terras, et cessaverunt ædificare civitatem.
  9. Et idcirco vocatum est nomen ejus Babel, quia ibi confusum est labium universæ terræ : et inde dispersit eos Dominus super faciem cunctarum regionum.
  10. Hæ sunt generationes Sem : Sem erat centum annorum quando genuit Arphaxad, biennio post diluvium.
  11. Vixitque Sem, postquam genuit Arphaxad, quingentis annis : et genuit filios et filias.
  12. Porro Arphaxad vixit triginta quinque annis, et genuit Sale.
  13. Vixitque Arphaxad, postquam genuit Sale, trecentis tribus annis : et genuit filios et filias.
  14. Sale quoque vixit triginta annis, et genuit Heber.
  15. Vixitque Sale, postquam genuit Heber, quadringentis tribus annis : et genuit filios et filias.
  16. Vixit autem Heber triginta quatuor annis, et genuit Phaleg.
  17. Et vixit Heber postquam genuit Phaleg, quadringentis triginta annis : et genuit filios et filias.

  19. Vixitque Phaleg, postquam genuit Reu, ducentis novem annis : et genuit filios et filias.
  20. Vixit autem Reu triginta duobus annis, et genuit Sarug.
  21. Vixit quoque Reu, postquam genuit Sarug, ducentis septem annis : et genuit filios et filias.
  22. Vixit vero Sarug triginta annis, et genuit Nachor.
  23. Vixitque Sarug, postquam genuit Nachor, ducentis annis : et genuit filios et filias.
  24. Vixit autem Nachor viginti novem annis, et genuit Thare.
  25. Vixitque Nachor, postquam genuit Thare, centum decem et novem annis : et genuit filios et filias.
  26. Vixitque Thare septuaginta annis, et genuit Abram, et Nachor, et Aran.
  27. Hæ sunt autem generationes Thare : Thare genuit Abram, Nachor et Aran. Porro Aran genuit Lot.
  28. Mortuusque est Aran ante Thare patrem suum, in terra nativitatis suæ, in Ur Chaldæorum.
  29. Duxerunt autem Abram et Nachor uxores : nomen uxoris Abram, Sarai : et nomen uxoris Nachor, Melcha filia Aran, patris Melchæ, et patris Jeschæ.
  30. Erat autem Sarai sterilis, nec habebat liberos.
  31. Tulit itaque Thare Abram filium suum, et Lot filium Aran, filium filii sui, et Sarai nurum suam, uxorem Abram filii sui, et eduxit eos de Ur Chaldæorum, ut irent in terram Chanaan : veneruntque usque Haran, et habitaverunt ibi.
  32. Et facti sunt dies Thare ducentorum quinque annorum, et mortuus est in Haran.

  1. And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech.
  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.
  3. And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them throughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter.
  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.
  5. And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded.
  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.
  7. Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech.
  8. So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city.
  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.

Commentary

The 11th chapter of Genesis contains the story of the Tower of Babel, which talks about humanities desire to make itself great, rather than trust in God. Following Babel, is a genealogy leading into the story of Abraham.
