2And it came to passe as they iourneyed from the East, that they found a plaine in the land of Shinar, and they dwelt there.
3And they sayd one to another; Goe to, let vs make bricke, and burne them thorowly. And they had bricke for stone, and slime had they for morter.
4And they said; Goe to, let vs build vs a city and a tower, whose top may reach vnto heauen, and let vs make vs a name, lest we be scattered abroad vpon the face of the whole earth.
6And the LORD said; Behold, the people is one, and they haue all one language: and this they begin to doe: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they haue imagined to doe.
7Goe to, let vs go downe, and there cōfound their language, that they may not vnderstand one anothers speech.
8So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence, vpon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the Citie.
