Coverdale(i) 1 Morouer all the worlde had one tonge & language. 2 Now as they wente towarde the East, they founde a playne in ye londe of Synear, & there they dwelt, 3 & saide one to another: Come on, let vs make bryck & burne it. And they toke bryck for stone, & slyme for morter, 4 And sayde: Come, let vs buylde a cite & a tower, whose toppe maye reach vnto heaue, yt we maye make vs a name, afore we be scatred abrode in all londes. 5 Then came ye LORDE downe, to se ye cite & tower, yt ye childre of me had buylded. 6 And ye LORDE saide: Beholde, the people is one, & haue one maner of language amoge the all, & this haue they begonne to do, & wil not leaue of from all yt they haue purposed to do. 7 Come on, let vs go downe, & cofounde their tonge eue there, yt one vnderstonde not what another saieth. 8 Thus ye LORDE scatred the fro thece in all lodes, so yt they left of to buylde the cite. 9 Therfore is it called Babell, because the LORDE cofounded there the language of all the worlde, and from thece scatred them abrode in to all londes. 10 These are ye generacions of Sem. Sem was an hundreth yeare olde, and begat Arphachsad two yeare after the floude, 11 and lyued therafter fyue hudreth yeare, and begat sonnes and doughters. 12 Arphachsad was fiue & thirtie yeare olde, and begat Salah, 13 and lyued therafter foure hundreth and thre yeare, and begat sonnes & doughters. 14 Salah was thirtie yeare olde, and begat Eber, 15 & lyued therafter foure hudreth & thre yeare, & begat sonnes and doughters. 16 Eber was foure and thirtie yeare olde, & begat Peleg, 17 and lyued therafter foure hundreth and thirtie yeare, and begat sonnes & doughters. 18 Peleg was thirtie yeare olde, and begat Regu, 19 and lyued therafter two hudreth and nyene yeare, and begat sonnes & doughters. 20 Regu was two and thirtie yeare olde, and begat Serug, 21 and lyued therafter two hundreth and seuen yeare, and begat sonnes and doughters. 22 Serug was thirtie yeare olde, and begat Nahor, 23 and lyued therafter two hundreth yeare, and begat sonnes & doughters. 24 Nahor was nyene and twentye yeare olde, and begat Terah, 25 and lyued herafter an hundreth and nyentene yeare, and begat sonnes and doughters. 26 Terah was seuentie yeare olde, and begat Abram, Nahor and Haran. 27 These are the generations of Terah: Terah begat Abram, Nahor and Haran. And Haran begat Lot, 28 but Hara dyed before Terah his father in ye londe where he was borne, at Vr in Chaldea. 29 Then Abram and Nahor toke them wyues. Abrams wife was called Sarai, & Nahors wyfe Milca the doughter of Haran, which was father of Milca and Iisca. 30 But Sarai was baren, and had no childe. 31 Then toke Terah Abra his sonne, & Lot his sonne Harans sonne, & Sarai his doughter in lawe, his sonne Abrams wife, & caried them wt him from Vr in Chaldea, to go in to the lande of Canaan. And they came to Haran, & dwelt there. 32 And Terah was two hundreth & fyue yeare olde, and dyed in Haran.
