The Tower of Babel
Today's Passage: Genesis 10:1-9
Get to know your bible. It will become a good friend.
Or find the passage NASB version on Bible Gateway here.
You can search for other versions there as well. Versions even in foreign languages.
Or, for your convenience I have typed the verses below from the
New Living Testament (NLT).
Thank You for meeting me, LORD.
I welcome you into this place.
Please prepare my heart Jehovah.
Thank you for insight.
History - So, now I know where it is.
1. At one time all the people of the world spoke the same language and used the same words.
2. As the people migrated to the east, they found a plain in the land of Babylonia and settled there.
3. They began saying to each other, "Let's make bricks and harden them with fire." (In this region bricks were used instead of stone, and tar was used for mortar.)
4. Then they said, "Come, let's build a great city for ourselves and a tower that reaches into the sky. This will make us famous and keep us from being scattered all over the world."
5. But the LORD came down to look at the city and the tower the people were building.
6. "Look!" he said. "The people are united, and they all speak the same language. After this, nothing they set out to do will be impossible for them!
7. Come, let's go down and confuse the people with different languages. They they won't be able to understand each other."
8. In that way, the LORD scattered them all over the world, and they stopped building the city.
9. That is why the city was called Babel, because that is where the LORD confused the people with different languages. In this way he scattered them all over the world.
Genesis 11:1-9 NLT
