 11:7
11:6 God said, 'They are a single people, all having one language, and this is the first thing they do! Now nothing they plan to do will be unattainable for them!
Vayomer Adonay hen am echad vesafah achat lechulam vezeh hachilam la'asot ve'atah lo-yibatser mehem kol asher yazmu la'asot.
11:7 Come, let us descend and confuse their speech, so that one person will not understand another's speech.'
Havah nerdah venavlah sham sefatam asher lo yishme'u ish sfat re'ehu.
