English Standard Version
4 Then they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city and a tower (A)with its top in the heavens, and let us make a name for ourselves, lest we be dispersed over the face of the whole earth.” 5 And (B)the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of man had built. 6 And the Lord said, “Behold, they are one people, and they have all one language, and this is only the beginning of what they will do. And nothing that they propose to do will now be impossible for them. 7 Come, (C)let us go down and there confuse their language, so that they may not understand one another's speech.” 8 So (D)the Lord dispersed them from there over the face of all the earth, and they left off building the city. 9 Therefore its name was called (E)Babel, because there the Lord confused[a] the language of all the earth. And from there the Lord dispersed them over the face of all the earth.Read full chapter
