Now there was for all the earth a single voice and a single set of words, and on their trail from the east they found a vale in the land of Shin‘ar, and they settled there.
Then they spoke, every man to his fellow,
Then Yahweh came down to see the town and the tower set up by the seed of Adam
and Yahweh spoke:
“See a single people and a single voice for all, and this they set out to make.
So Yahweh scattered them from there across the face of all the earth, and they deserted the foundation of the town. On this account Babel was proclaimed as its name, for there Yahweh broke open the babble of all the earth and from there Yahweh scattered them across the face of all the earth.
