[Gen 11:1 NASB]
Now the whole earth used the same language and the same words.
[Gen 11:2 NASB]
It came about as they journeyed east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar and settled there.
[Gen 11:3 NASB]
They said to one another, "Come, let us make bricks and burn [them] thoroughly." And they used brick for stone, and they used tar for mortar.
[Gen 11:4 NASB]
They said, "Come, let us build for ourselves a city, and a tower whose top [will reach] into heaven, and let us make for ourselves a name, otherwise we will be scattered abroad over the face of the whole earth."
[Gen 11:5 NASB]
The LORD came down to see the city and the tower which the sons of men had built.

"Come, let Us go down and there confuse their language, so that they will not understand one another's speech."
[Gen 11:8 NASB]
So the LORD scattered them abroad from there over the face of the whole earth; and they stopped building the city.
[Gen 11:9 NASB]
Therefore its name was called Babel, because there the LORD confused the language of the whole earth; and from there the LORD scattered them abroad over the face of the whole earth.
