New International Version

Genesis 11:1-32

The Tower of Babel

1Now the whole world had one language and a common speech. 2As people moved eastward,11:2 Or from the east; or in the east they found a plain in Shinar11:2 That is, Babylonia and settled there.

3They said to each other, “Come, let’s make bricks and bake them thoroughly.” They used brick instead of stone, and tar for mortar. 4Then they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens, so that we may make a name for ourselves; otherwise we will be scattered over the face of the whole earth.”

5But the Lord came down to see the city and the tower the people were building. 6The Lord said, “If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them. 7Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other.”

8So the Lord scattered them from there over all the earth, and they stopped building the city. 9That is why it was called Babel11:9 That is, Babylon; Babel sounds like the Hebrew for confused.—because there the Lord confused the language of the whole world. From there the Lord scattered them over the face of the whole earth.

Abram’s Family

27This is the account of Terah’s family line.

Terah became the father of Abram, Nahor and Haran. And Haran became the father of Lot. 28While his father Terah was still alive, Haran died in Ur of the Chaldeans, in the land of his birth. 29Abram and Nahor both married. The name of Abram’s wife was Sarai, and the name of Nahor’s wife was Milkah; she was the daughter of Haran, the father of both Milkah and Iskah. 30Now Sarai was childless because she was not able to conceive.

31Terah took his son Abram, his grandson Lot son of Haran, and his daughter-in-law Sarai, the wife of his son Abram, and together they set out from Ur of the Chaldeans to go to Canaan. But when they came to Harran, they settled there.

32Terah lived 205 years, and he died in Harran.

Gênesis 11:1-32

A Torre de Babel

1No mundo todo havia apenas uma língua, um só modo de falar.

2Saindo os homens do11.2 Ou para o Oriente Oriente, encontraram uma planície em Sinear e ali se fixaram.

3Disseram uns aos outros: “Vamos fazer tijolos e queimá-los bem”. Usavam tijolos em lugar de pedras, e piche em vez de argamassa. 4Depois disseram: “Vamos construir uma cidade, com uma torre que alcance os céus. Assim nosso nome será famoso e não seremos espalhados pela face da terra”.

5O Senhor desceu para ver a cidade e a torre que os homens estavam construindo. 6E disse o Senhor: “Eles são um só povo e falam uma só língua, e começaram a construir isso. Em breve nada poderá impedir o que planejam fazer. 7Venham, desçamos e confundamos a língua que falam, para que não entendam mais uns aos outros”.

8Assim o Senhor os dispersou dali por toda a terra, e pararam de construir a cidade. 9Por isso foi chamada Babel11.9 Isto é, Babilônia., porque ali o Senhor confundiu a língua de todo o mundo. Dali o Senhor os espalhou por toda a terra.

Terá gerou Abrão, Naor e Harã. E Harã gerou Ló. 28Harã morreu em Ur dos caldeus, sua terra natal, quando ainda vivia Terá, seu pai. 29Tanto Abrão como Naor casaram-se. O nome da mulher de Abrão era Sarai, e o nome da mulher de Naor era Milca; esta era filha de Harã, pai de Milca e de Iscá. 30Ora, Sarai era estéril; não tinha filhos.

31Terá tomou seu filho Abrão, seu neto Ló, filho de Harã, e sua nora Sarai, mulher de seu filho Abrão, e juntos partiram de Ur dos caldeus para Canaã. Mas, ao chegarem a Harã, estabeleceram-se ali.
