19 And the border of the Canaanites was from Sidon, as thou comest to Gerar, unto † Gaza; as thou goest unto Sodom, and Gomorrah, and Admah, and Zeboim, even unto Lasha.

20 These are the sons of Ham, after their families, after their tongues, in their countries, and in their nations.


21 ¶ Unto Shem also, the father of all the children of Eber, the brother of Japheth the elder, even to him were children born.

25 mAnd unto Eber were born two sons: the name of one was Peleg; for in his days was the earth divided; and his brother's name was Joktan.

4 And they said, Go to, let us build Heb. burn us a city, and a tower whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.

5 "And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded.


6 And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all done language; and this they begin to do : and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.

7 Go to, flet us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech.

8 So1 the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth and they left off to build the city.


9 Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.

Abram and Lot return out of Egypt. 7 Because of the disagreement between their herdmen, they part asunder. 10 Lot goeth to wicked Sodom. 14 God reneweth the promise to Abram. 18 He removeth

ND Abram went up out of Egypt, he, and his wife, and all that he had, and Lot with him, into the south. 2 b And Abram was very rich in cattle, in silver, and in gold.

3 And he went on his journeys from the south even to Beth-el, unto the place where his tent had been at the beginning, between Bethel and Hai;


4 Unto the place of the altar, which he had made there at the first: and there Abram e called on the name of the LORD.
