Genesis 6:1-22

1 And it came to pass when the men began to be multiplied on the earth and daughters were born to them, 2 that the sons of God seeing the daughters of men that they were fair, took to themselves wives of all whom they chose: 3 then the Lord God said, "My breath must not continue in these men to this age, because they are flesh; their days however, shall be an hundred and twenty years." 4 Now there were giants on the earth in those days, and after that when the sons of God went in unto the daughters of men and they bore to them. These were the giants of old, the men of renown. 5 So when the Lord God saw that the wickedness of the men on the earth was multiplied, and that every one was in his heart studiously and continually bent upon evils, 6 God was grieved that he had made man on the earth. 7 And God came to a determination and said, "I will blot out from the face of this earth the man I have made, both man and beast; both reptiles and birds of the air. For I am grieved that I made them. 8 But Noe found favour in the sight of the Lord God. 9 Now these are the generations of Noe. Noe was a just man; and being perfect in the tenor of his life, Noe pleased God. 10 And Noe had three sons, Sem, Cham, Japheth. 11 Now the earth was corrupt before God; and the earth was filled with iniquity. 12 And God beheld the earth and it was corrupt. Because all flesh had corrupted their way on the earth; 13 therefore the Lord God said to Noe, "The time of every man is come before me. Because the earth is filled with iniquity by their means, therefore behold I am going to destroy them and the earth. 14 Make therefore for thyself an ark of squared timber. Thou shalt make the ark with small apartments, and pitch it on the inside and outside with pitch. 15 And in this manner thou shalt make the ark. Three hundred cubits shall be the length of the ark, and fifty cubits the breadth, and thirty cubits the height thereof. 16 In building the ark thou shalt narrow the breadth and finish it above at a cubit. And thou shalt make the door of the ark out of the sides. With lower, second and third stories thou shalt make it. 17 Now behold I am going to bring a flood of water upon the earth to destroy all flesh in which is the breath of life under heaven, and all that are on the earth shall die; 18 and I will establish my covenant with thee. Thou therefore shalt go into the ark, thou and thy sons and thy wife and thy sons' wives with thee. 19 And of all the cattle, and of all the reptiles, and of all the wild beasts, even of all flesh thou shalt bring into the ark a pair of every sort, that thou mayest nourish them with thyself. They shall be a male with a female. 20 Of all the winged fowls according to kind, and of all the cattle according to kind, and of all the reptiles which creep on the earth according to their kind, pairs of every sort shall come to thee, a male with a female, to be fed with thee. 21 Thou shalt therefore take to thee of all the varieties of food which you eat, and collect it to thee, and it shall be for thee and for them to eat." 22 And Noe did all that the Lord God commanded him;

Genesis 10:8-12

8 And Chous begot Nebrod. He began to be a giant on the earth. 9 He was a giant hunter before the Lord God. For this cause they say, "Like Nebrod the giant hunter before the Lord." 10 And the beginning of his kingdom was Babylon and Orech and Archad and Chalane in the land of Senaar. 11 From this land Assour went out and builded Ninive and the city Rooboth and Chalach 12 and Dase, between Ninive and Chalach. This was the great city.

Jeremiah 50:1-46

1 A word of the Lord which he spake against Babylon. 2 Proclaim among the nations, publish and conceal not; say, Babylon is taken; Bel is confounded; the fearless, the luxurious Mairodach is delivered up. 3 For a nation is gone up against her from the north, which will make her land a desolation, so that none shall dwell therein, neither man nor beast. 4 In those days, even at that time, shall come up the children of Israel, they and the children of Juda together: walking slow and weeping they will march on seeking the Lord their God. 5 They will ask the way to Zion; for thitherward they will set their face; and they will come and flee to the Lord their God; for the everlasting covenant shall not be forgotten. 6 My people have been lost sheep. Their shepherds caused them to stray. On the mountains they caused them to wander. From mountain to hill they roamed. They forgot their place of rest. 7 All that found them devoured them. Their enemies said, "Let us not spare them because they sinned against the Lord." He who gathered their fathers hath a pasture of righteousness: 8 remove out of Babylon and from the country of the Chaldeans, and go out and be like dragons before sheep. 9 For Lo! I am raising up against Babylon assemblies of nations from the north; and they shall be drawn up in array against her. Thence one shall be taken like the dart of a skilful warrior which shall not rebound in vain. 10 So Chaldea shall be for a prey. All that plunder it shall be satisfied. 11 Because you rejoiced and triumphed when you were plundering my heritage; because you frisked about like calves in a pasture, and brandished your horns like bulls; 12 your mother shall be greatly ashamed: she who brought you forth for prosperity shall be confounded. Being the hindmost of nations, 13 a desert because of the wrath of the Lord, she shall not be inhabited; but shall be entirely a desolation. Sorrow will cover the countenance of all who travel through Babylon; and at all their calamity they will express pity. 14 Set yourselves in array all around against Babylon. All ye who bend the bow shoot at her: spare not your arrows, 15 you must needs subdue her. Her hands are weakened; her bulwarks have fallen, and her wall is undermined. Because it is a vengeance from the Lord; execute vengeance on her. As she hath done, do ye to her. 16 Destroy utterly the seed of Babylon, him who handleth the sickle in harvest. Let them return from the face of the Grecian sword, every one to his own people; and let every one flee to his own land. 17 Israel was a wandering sheep. Lions scared him away. The first who devoured him was the king of Assur, and this last, the king of Babylon gnawed his bones. 18 Therefore thus saith the Lord, Behold I will execute vengeance on the king of Babylon and his land as I executed vengeance on the king of Assyria. 19 And I will bring back Israel to his pasture, and he shall feed on Carmel, and on mount Ephraim, and on Galaad; and his soul shall be satisfied. 20 In those days and at that time, search shall be made for the iniquity of Israel; but none shall remain: and for the sins of Juda; but none shall be found. For I will be merciful to them who are left. 21 With respect to this land, saith the Lord. Go up with bitterness against it and against them who dwell in it; take vengeance, sword, and destroy utterly; saith the Lord, and do according to all that I command thee. 22 A sound of battle and great distress in the land of the Chaldeans! 23 How the hammer of the whole earth is broken and dashed to pieces! How Babylon is become a desolation among the nations! 24 They will come upon thee and thou shalt not know; like Babylon itself and thou shalt be taken. Thou art found out and taken, because thou didst set thyself against the Lord. 25 The Lord hath opened his arsenal and brought out the instruments of his wrath; because the Lord God hath a work to perform in the land of the Chaldeans. 26 Because her time is come; open ye her treasuries, search her like a cave; and destroy her utterly. Let not a remnant of her be left. 27 Lay waste all her fruits and let them go down to destruction. [p] Alas for them; for their day is come and the time of their visitation! 28 Hark! a sound of men fleeing and escaping out of the land of Babylon to inform Sion of the vengeance of the Lord our God. 29 [J] Issue these orders to many against Babylon; to every one bending a bow;" Encamp against her round about; let none escape out of her." Render to her according to her works; according to all that she hath done, do ye to her. Because she set herself against the Lord, the holy God of Israel, 30 therefore her young men shall fall in her streets and all her mighty warriors shall be laid low, saith the Lord. 31 Behold I am against thee, thou essence of haughtiness, saith the Lord. Because thy day is come and the time of thy punishment; 32 therefore thy haughtiness shall be abated and fall, and none shall continue to support it. For I will kindle a fire in her forest, which shall devour all around her. 33 Thus saith the Lord, The children of Israel and the children of Juda have both been oppressed; all who captivated them tyrannised over them. Because they refused to let them go; 34 therefore their Redeemer; the Mighty One, whose name is The Lord Almighty will plead their cause with their adversaries. In order that he may remove this land out of the way he will sharpen for the inhabitants of Babylon 35 a sword against the Chaldeans and against the inhabitants of Babylon; and against her grandees and against her counsellors; 36 a sword against her warriors and they shall be destroyed; 37 a sword against their horses and against their chariots; a sword against their warriors and the mixed multitude in the midst of her and they shall be like women; a sword against her treasures; and they shall be rifled; 38 against them who are on her waters and they shall be exposed to shame. Because it is a land of the graven images and it was in these islands where they boasted; 39 therefore imageries shall dwell in those islands and in her shall dwell the daughters of Sirens and she shall never more be inhabited. 40 As God overthrew Sodom and Gomorra and the neighbouring cities, said the Lord, no man shall dwell there, nor shall a son of man make his abode there. 41 Behold a people is coming from the north, even a mighty nation, and many kings shall be roused up from the extremity of the earth 42 handling the bow and sword. They are haughty and will shew no mercy: their voice will roar like the sea. On horses they will come prancing, in array like fire, for battle against thee, daughter of Babylon. 43 The king of Babylon heard the report of them and his hands were enfeebled; anguish seized him like the pangs of a woman in travail. 44 Behold he will be like the lion which must go up from the swelling of Jordan to Gaitham, for I will speedily drive men from her, and set every youth against her: for who is like me and who can withstand me? And who is the shepherd who can stand before me? 45 Therefore hear the counsel which the Lord hath taken against Babylon; and the determination he is come to against the Chaldean inhabitants, let all but the lambs of the flock to destroyed; let all but a pasture for them be made a desolation. 46 For at the sound of the capture of Babylon the earth shall be shaken, and a scream shall be heard among the nations.

Micah 5:6

6 and they will feed Assur with a sword and the land of Nebrod in its enclosure. So he will deliver from the Assyrian, when he hath come against your land and when he hath passed over your borders.

Revelation 18:1-24

1 And after this I saw another angel coming down out of heaven having great authority; and the earth was illumined with his glory; 2 and he cried mightily, saying with a loud voice, It is fallen! Babylon the great is fallen, and is become the habitation of demons, and a hold of every unclean spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird, 3 because all the nations have drunk of the poison of her fornication and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth have been enriched by the abundance of her luxury. 4 And I heard another voice out of heaven saying, Come out of her, my people, that you may not partake of her sins and that you may not receive of her punishments. 5 Because her sins have reached to heaven and God hath remembered her acts of injustice, 6 render to her as she hath rendered to you and requite her double according to her works. In the cup in which she mingled, mingle for her a double portion. 7 In proportion to her ostentation and luxury inflict on her torment and grief. Because she saith in her heart, I am enthroned a queen and am not a widow, and shall not see sorrow; 8 therefore in one day these calamities shall come upon her, pestilence and sorrow and famine; and she shall be consumed with fire; for the Lord God who judgeth her is mighty. 9 And the kings of the earth who have committed fornication and lived luxuriously with her will wail and beat their breasts for her, when they see the smoke of her burning 10 standing afar off for fear of her torment, saying, Alas! Alas! that great city Babylon! that 'mighty city! for in one hour thy judgment is come. 11 The merchants of the earth also will weep and mourn for her; because no one any more buyeth their merchandize 12 the merchandize of gold and silver and precious stones and pearls; and of cotton and purple and silk and scarlet; and every sort of odoriferous wood and the various wares of ivory and of most precious wood and of brass and iron and marble, 13 and cinnamon and frankincense and myrrh and incense and wine and oil and fine flour and wheat and cattle and sheep and horses and chariots and the bodies and souls of men. 14 Even the autumnal fruits, thy soul's desire are gone from thee; and all these delicious and all those splendid things are gone from thee and thou shalt find them no more. 15 The venders of these things who have been enriched by her will stand far off for fear of her torment, weeping and wailing 16 and saying, Alas! Alas! the great city! she that was clothed with cotton and purple and scarlet and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls! 17 for in one hour what a mass of wealth is laid waste! And every one sailing to the place, both mariners and traffickers by sea stood afar off 18 and screamed when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city was like this great city? 19 and they put dust on their heads and cried weeping and wailing and saying, Alas! Alas! the great city by which all who have ships at sea were enriched by means of her wealth; for in one hour she is desolated. 20 Rejoice over her, O heaven! and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her. 21 Then a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone and cast it into the sea saying, Thus with violence shall Babylon that great city be dashed down and shall be found no more. 22 And the sound of harpers and of musicians and of pipers and of trumpeters shall no more be heard in thee. And no artist of any kind shall ever be found in thee again. And the sound of a millstone shall never be heard in thee again; 23 nor shall the light of a lamp ever shine in thee any more, nor the voice of a bridegroom and bride ever be heard in thee; for thy merchants were the nobles of the earth; for by thy bewitching arts all the nations were led astray. 24 And in her was found the blood of prophets and saints and of all who were slain on the earth.

Revelation 17:1-18

1 Then one of the seven angels who had the seven vials came to me and talked with me, saying to me, Come let me shew thee the judgment of the great harlot that sitteth on the many waters, 2 with whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication. 3 And he carried me away in spirit to a wilderness; and I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast full of blasphemous names, which had seven heads and ten horns. 4 And the woman was clad in purple and scarlet and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls; and she had in her hand a golden cup full of the abominations and impurity of her fornication; 5 and on her forehead there was a name written, Mystery, Babylon The Great, the mother of the harlots and the abominations of the earth. 6 And I saw the woman drunk with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the witnesses of Jesus; and when I saw her I expressed my astonishment with great amaze. 7 And the angel said to me, Why art thou amazed? I will tell thee the mystery of this woman and of the beast which carrieth her, which hath seven heads and ten horns. 8 The beast which thou sawest was and is not and is soon to ascend out of the bottomless gulf and go to destruction; and the inhabitants of the earth, whose names are not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world will wonder when they see the beast, because it was and is not although indeed it is. 9 Let the mind which hath wisdom attend. The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sitteth 10 and they are seven kings. Five have fallen, and one is and the other is not yet come; and when he hath come he must continue but a little while; 11 and the beast, which was and is not, is itself the eighth and is of the seven and goeth to destruction; 12 and the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but are about to take authority as kings one short period of time with the beast. 13 These have one mind and will transfer their power and authority to the beast. 14 These will make war against the lamb, and the lamb will overcome them; for he is Lord of lords and King of kings; and they who are with him are called and chosen and faithful. 15 Then he saith to me, The waters which thou sawest where the harlot sitteth are peoples, and multitudes and nations and tongues: 16 and with regard to the ten horns which thou sawest on the beast, these will hate the harlot and will make her desolate and naked and devour her flesh, and burn her with fire. 17 For God hath put it into their hearts to execute his sentence and to execute one design and to give their kingdom to the beast until the words of God are accomplished. 18 Now the woman which thou sawest is that great city which hath sovereignty over the kings of the earth.

Revelation 21:8

8 but the cowards and the unbelieving and abominable and murderers and prostitutes, and sorcerers and idolaters and all liars shall have their portion in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone. This is the second death.

Genesis 10:1-32

1 Now these are the generations of the sons of Noe, Sem, Cham, Japheth, to whom sons were born after the flood. 2 The sons of Japheth, Gamer, and Magog and Madoi and Jovan and Elisa and Thobel and Mosoch and Theiras. 3 And the sons of Gamer, Aschanaz and Riphath and Thorgama. 4 And the children of Jovan, Elisa, and the Tharsians, Ketians, Rhodians. 5 By these the islands of the nations were set apart in their land, each according to their language in their tribes and in their nations. 6 And the sons of Cham; Chous, and Mesrain, Phoud and Chanaan. 7 And the children of Chous; Saba and Evila and Sabatha and Regma and Sabathaka. And the sons of Regma; Saba and Dadan. 8 And Chous begot Nebrod. He began to be a giant on the earth. 9 He was a giant hunter before the Lord God. For this cause they say, "Like Nebrod the giant hunter before the Lord." 10 And the beginning of his kingdom was Babylon and Orech and Archad and Chalane in the land of Senaar. 11 From this land Assour went out and builded Ninive and the city Rooboth and Chalach 12 and Dase, between Ninive and Chalach. This was the great city. 13 And Mesrain begot the Loudieims and the Nephthaleims, and the Enemetieims, and Labieims, 14 and Patrosonieims, and the Chasmonieims [from whom descended the Philistines] and the Gaphthorieims. 15 And Chanaan begot Sidon his first born, and Chettaius, 16 and Jebousaius and Amoraius and Gergasaius 17 and Evaius and Aroukaius and Asennaius 18 and Aradius and Samaraius and Amathius. And after this the tribes of the Chananites were dispersed. 19 And the boundaries of the Chananites were from Sidon extending to Gerara and Gaza, thence extending to Sodom and Gomorra, Adama and Seboin even to Dasa. 20 These were the children of Cham in their tribes according to their languages in their countries and in their nations. 21 To Sem also children were born even to him who was the father of all the children of Eber and the brother of Japheth who was older than he. 22 The children of Sem were Elam and Assour and Arphaxad and Loud and Aram and Kainan. 23 And the children of Aram were Ouz and Oul and Gater and Mosoch. 24 And Arphaxad begot Kainan; and Kainan begot Sala; and Sala begot Eber; 25 and to Eber were born two sons, the name of the one was Phaleg, because in his days the earth was divided, and his brother's name was Jektan. 26 And Jektan begot Elmodad and Saleth and Sarmoth and Jarach 27 and Odorra and Aibel and Dekla 28 and Eval and Abimael and Saba 29 and Oupheir and Evila and Jobab. All these were the children of Jektan, 30 and their dwelling was from Massa extending to Saphera a mountain of the east. 31 These were the children of Sem in their tribes according to their tongues in their countries and in their nations. 32 These were the tribes of the children of Noe according to their descents and according to their nations. From these were peopled the different countries of the nations on the earth after the flood.

Genesis 10:8

8 And Chous begot Nebrod. He began to be a giant on the earth.

Genesis 11:1-32

1 Now when the whole earth was of one lip and all had one voice, 2 it came to pass as they were moving from the east that they found a plain in the land of Sennaar and settled there. 3 And they said one to another, Come let us make bricks and bake them with fire. Now the bricks served them for stone and their mortar was asphaltus. 4 And they said, Come, let us build for ourselves a city and a tower, the top of which shall be up to heaven; and let us make a name for ourselves before we be scattered on the face of the whole earth. 5 And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower which the children of men were building. 6 And the Lord said, Behold they are all of one race and one lip. And this they have begun to do; and now nothing will fail of all which they may determine to do. 7 Come, let us go down and there confound their language that they may not understand each other's voice. 8 So the Lord dispersed them from that place over the face of the whole earth, and they left off building the city and the tower. 9 For this cause the name of it was called Confusion, because there the Lord confounded the lips of the whole earth, and dispersed them thence over the face of the whole earth. 10 Now these are the generations of Sem. Sem was an hundred years old when he begot Arphaxad the second year after the flood. 11 And Sem lived after he begot Arphaxad five hundred years and begot sons and daughters, and died. 12 And Arphaxad lived a hundred and thirty five years and begot Kainan. 13 And Arphaxad lived after he begot Kainan four hundred years and begot sons and daughters, and died. And Kainan lived a hundred and thirty years and begot Sala; and Kainan lived after he begot Sala three hundred and thirty years and begot sons and daughters, and died. 14 And Sala lived a hundred and thirty years and begot Eber; and Sala lived after he begot Eber three hundred and thirty years and begot sons and daughters, and died.

Genesis 11:26-32

26 And Tharra lived seventy years and begot Abram and Nachor and Arran. 27 Now these are the generations of Tharra. Tharra begot Abram and Nachor and Arran; and Arran begot Lot. 28 And Arran died in the presence of his father Tharra in the land in which he was born in the country of the Chaldees. 29 And Abram and Nachor took themselves wives. The name of Abram's wife was Sara, and the name of Nachor's wife, Malcha, a daughter of Arran, who was the father of Malcha and the father of Jescha. 30 And Sara was barren and did not bear children. 31 And Tharra took Abram his son and Lot the son of Arran, his grand son, and Sara his daughter in law, the wife of his son Abram, and led them out of the country of the Chaldees to go to the land of Chanaan. But when they came to Charran he took up his abode there. 32 And in the land of Charran, all the days of Tharra were two hundred and five years. And Tharra died in Charran.
