Genesis 11:6 And ye LORDE saide: Beholde, the people is one, & haue one maner of language amoge the all, & this haue they begonne to do, & wil not leaue of from all yt they haue purposed to do. Genesis 11:7 Come on, let vs go downe, & cofounde their tonge eue there, yt one vnderstonde not what another saieth. Genesis 11:8 Thus ye LORDE scatred the fro thece in all lodes, so yt they left of to buylde the cite. Genesis 11:9 Therfore is it called Babell, because the LORDE cofounded there the language of all the worlde, and from thece scatred them abrode in to all londes.
