Chapter 11י״א
1 א

וַהֲוָה כָּל אַרְעָא לִישַׁן חָד וּמַמְלַל חָד וְעִיטָא חֲדָא בְּלִישָׁן קוּדְשָׁא הֲווֹ מְמַלְלִין דְאִתְבָּרַיָא בֵּיה עַלְמָא מִן שֵׁרוּיָא

And all the earth was (of) one language, and one speech, and one counsel. In the holy language spake they, that by which the world had been created at the beginning.

2 ב

וַהֲוָה בְּמֵיטַלְהוֹן מִמַדִינְחָא וְאַשְׁכָּחוּ בִּקְעֲתָא בְּאַרְעָא דְבָּבֶל וְיָתִיבוּ תַּמָן

And it was while they were journeying from the east that they found a plain in the land of Bavel, and dwelt there.

3 ג

וַאֲמָרוּ גְבַר לְחַבְרֵיהּ הָבוּ נִרְמֵי לִיבְנִין וְנִשְׁוֵי יַתְהוֹן בְּאַתּוּנָא וַהֲוָה לְהוֹן לְבִינְתָּא לְאַבְנָא וְטִינָא הֲוַות לְהוֹם לְשִׁיעַ

And they said, a man to his fellow, Come, we will cast bricks, and put them in the furnace. And they had brick for stone, and slime for cement.

4 ד

וַאֲמָרוּ הָבוּ נִבְנֵי לָנָא קַרְתָּא וּמִגְדְלָא וְרֵישֵׁיהּ מָטֵי עַד צֵית שְׁמַיָא וְנַעֲבֵד לָנָא סִגְדוּ בְּרֵישֵׁיהּ וְנִשְׁוֵי חַרְבָּא בִּידֵהּ וּתְהֵי עַבְדָא לְקִיבְלֵהּ סִדְרֵי קְרָבָא קָדָם עַד לָא נִתְבַּדַר מֵעִלַוֵי אַנְפֵּי אַרְעָא

And they said, Come, we will build us a city and a tower, and the head of it shall come to the summit of the heavens; and we will make us (an image for) worship on the top of it, and put a sword in his hand to act against the array of war, before that we be scattered on the face of the earth.

5 ה

וְאִתְגְלֵי יְיָ לְאִיתְפַּרְעָא מִנְהוֹן עַל עוֹבַד קַרְתָּא וּמַגְדְלָא דְבָנוּ בְּנֵי נְשָׁא

And the Lord was revealed to punish them for the work of the city and the tower which the sons of men builded.

6 ו

וַאֲמַר יְיָ הָא עַמָא חָד וְלִישָׁן חָד לְכֻלְהוֹם וְדָא אִתְחַשְׁבוּ לְמֶעֱבַד וּכְדוֹן לָא יִתְמְנַע מִנְהוֹן כָּל דַחֲשִׁיבוּ לְמֶעֱבָד

And the Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and the language of all of them one: and this they have thought to do: and now they will not be restrained from doing whatever they imagine.

7 ז

וַאֲמַר יְיָ לְשַׁבְעִין מַלְאָכַיָא דְקַיְימִין קוֹמוֹי אִיתוּן כְּדֵין וְנָחִית וּנְעַרְבְּבָא תַּמָן לִישַׁנְהוֹן דְלָא יִשְׁמְעוּן אֱינַשׁ לִישָׁן חַבְרֵיהּ

And the Lord said to the seventy angels which stand before Him, Come, we will descend and will there commingle their language, that a man shall not understand the speech of his neighbour.

8 ח

וְאִגְלִיאַת מֵימְרָא דַיְיָ עֲלוֹי קַרְתָּא וְעִמֵיהּ שׁוּבְעִין מַלְאָכַיָא כָּל קְבֵל שׁוּבְעִין עַמְמַיָא וְכָל חַד וְחַד לִישָׁן עַמְמֵיהּ (נ"א וְרוֹשָׁם כַּתְבֵיהּ) (וּמִשָׁם כַּפְתֵיהּ) בִּידֵיהּ וּבַדְרִינוּן מִתַּמָן עַל אַנְפֵּי כָּל אַרְעָא לְשַׁבְעִין לִישְׁנִין וְלָא הֲוָה יָדַע חַד מַה דְיֵימַר חַבְרֵיהּ וַהֲווֹ קַטְלִין דֵין לְדֵין וּפְסָקוּ מִלִמִבְנֵי קַרְתָּא

And the Word of the Lord was revealed against the city, and with Him seventy angels, having reference to seventy nations, each having its own language, and thence the writing of its own hand: and He dispersed them from thence upon the face of all the earth into seventy languages. And one knew not what his neighbour would say: but one slew the other; and they ceased from building the city.

9 ט

בְּגִין כֵּן קְרָא שְׁמָהּ בָּבֶל אֲרוּם תַּמָן עַרְבִּיב יְיָ לִישָׁן כָּל דַיְירֵי אַרְעָא וּמִתַּמָן בַּדְרִינוּן יְיָ עַל אַפֵּי כָּל אַרְעָא

Therefore He called the name of it Bavel, because there did the Lord commingle the speech of all the inhabitants of the earth, and from thence did the Lord disperse them upon the faces of all the earth.

And it was when Nimrod had cast Abram into the furnace of fire because he would not worship his idol, and the fire had no power to burn him, that Haran's heart became doubtful, saying, If Nimrod overcome, I will be on his side: but if Abram overcome, I will be on his side. And when all the people who were there saw that the fire had no power over Abram, they said in their hearts, Is not Haran the brother of Abram full of divinations and charms, and has he not uttered spells over the fire that it should not burn his brother? Immediately (min yad, out of hand) there fell fire from the high heavens and consumed him; and Haran died in the sight of Terah his father, where he was burned in the land of his nativity, in the furnace of fire which the Kasdai had made for Abram his brother.

29 כט

וּנְסִיב אַבְרָם וְנָחוֹר לְהוֹן נְשִׁין שׁוּם אִתַּת אַבְרָם שָרַי וְשׁוּם אִתַּת נָחוֹר מִלְכָּה בְּרַת הָרָן אֲבוֹי דְמִלְכָּא וַאֲבוֹי דְיִסְכָּה הִיא שָרַי
