Genesis 11
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1And the whole earth is of one language, and of the same words, 2and it comes to pass, in their journeying from the east, that they find a valley in the land of Shinar and dwell there; 3and they each say to his neighbor, “Give help, let us make bricks, and burn [them] thoroughly”: and the brick is to them for stone, and the bitumen has been to them for mortar. 4And they say, “Give help, let us build for ourselves a city and tower with its head in the heavens, and make for ourselves a name, lest we be scattered over the face of all the earth.” 5And YHWH comes down to see the city and the tower which the sons of men have built; 6and YHWH says, “Behold, the people [is] one, and one language [is] to them all, and this it has dreamed of doing; and now, nothing is restrained from them of that which they have purposed to do. 7Give help, let us go down there and confuse their language, so that a man will not understand the language of his companion.” 8And YHWH scatters them from there over the face of all the earth, and they cease to build the city; 9therefore [one] has called its name Babel, for there YHWH has confused the language of all the earth, and from there YHWH has scattered them over the face of all the earth.

31And Terah takes his son Abram, and Lot, son of Haran, his son’s son, and his daughter-in-law Sarai, wife of his son Abram, and they go out with them from Ur of the Chaldees, to go toward the land of Canaan; and they come to Haran, and dwell there. 32And the days of Terah are two hundred and five years, and Terah dies in Haran.
