Book of Genesis  Chapter 11

 The Tower of Babel; Abraham the Patriarch

GENESIS 11:1  And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech.

GENESIS 11:2  And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found  a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there.

GENESIS 11:3  And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them  thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter.

GENESIS 11:4  And they said, Go to, let us build 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.

GENESIS 11:5  And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the  children of men builded.

GENESIS 11:6  And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one  language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from  them, which they have imagined to do.

GENESIS 11:7  Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they  may not understand one another's speech.

GENESIS 11:8  So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all  the earth: and they left off to build the city.

GENESIS 11:9  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.

GENESIS 11:10  These are the generations of Shem: Shem was an hundred years  old, and begat Arphaxad two years after the flood:

GENESIS 11:11  And Shem lived after he begat Arphaxad five hundred years, and begat  sons and daughters.

GENESIS 11:12  And Arphaxad lived five and thirty years, and begat Salah:

GENESIS 11:15  And Salah lived after he begat Eber four hundred and three years,  and begat sons and daughters.

GENESIS 11:16  And Eber lived four and thirty years, and begat Peleg:

GENESIS 11:17  And Eber lived after he begat Peleg four hundred and thirty years,  and begat sons and daughters.

GENESIS 11:18  And Peleg lived thirty years, and begat Reu:

GENESIS 11:19  And Peleg lived after he begat Reu two hundred and nine years, and  begat sons and daughters.

GENESIS 11:20  And Reu lived two and thirty years, and begat Serug:

GENESIS 11:27  Now these are the generations of Terah: Terah begat Abram,  Nahor, and Haran; and Haran begat Lot.

GENESIS 11:28  And Haran died before his father Terah in the land of his nativity,  in Ur of the Chaldees.

GENESIS 11:29  And Abram and Nahor took them wives: the name of Abram's wife was  Sarai; and the name of Nahor's wife, Milcah, the daughter of Haran, the  father of Milcah, and the father of Iscah.

GENESIS 11:30  But Sarai was barren; she had no child.

GENESIS 11:31  And Terah took Abram his son, and Lot the son of Haran his son's  son, and Sarai his daughter in law, his son Abram's wife; and they went forth  with them from Ur of the Chaldees, to go into the land of Canaan; and they  came unto Haran, and dwelt there.

GENESIS 11:32  And the days of Terah were two hundred and five years: and Terah  died in Haran.

The bible and Zionism

The bible, the Old Testament, has become a mainstay of human culture, but it is first and foremost a historical document of the Jewish people and our culture. It tells the story of our ancient kingdoms and civilization in the Land of Israel, and therefore it kept alive the tie of the people of Israel to the land of Israel for 2000 years. It forms the moral and cultural basis of Zionist ideology and aspirations.

The Bible, the Old Testament, accepted by the three major Western faiths and a major work of Western civilization, documents the historic connection of the Jewish people to the land of Israel, even for those who do not believe that the Bible is the literal word of God, and even for those who do not believe in God at all. It is the historic epic of the Jewish people in our land.
