Original: And all the earth had one language and one tongue. And it came about that in their wandering from the east, they came to a stretch of flat country in the land of Shinar, and there they made their living-place. And they said one to another, Come, let us make bricks, burning them well. And they had bricks for stone, putting them together with sticky earth. And they said, Come, let us make a town, and a tower whose top will go up as high as heaven; and let us make a great name for ourselves, so that we may not be wanderers over the face of the earth. And the Lord came down to see the town and the tower which the children of men were building. And the Lord said, See, they are all one people and have all one language; and this is only the start of what they may do: and now it will not be possible to keep them from any purpose of theirs. Come, let us go down and take away the sense of their language, so that they will not be able to make themselves clear to one another. So the Lord God sent them away into every part of the earth: and they gave up building their town. So it was named Babel, because there the Lord took away the sense of all languages and from there the Lord sent them away over all the face of the earth.
Et tout le mond tivou un linguage et une lingue. Et hizou-se que en seu vagor du ciant, vineront a une piàte de tierre zane na regiâu de Chinar, et ai hicieront seu vivaire. Et eis loquieront-se, 'Veit, hacens ladres, cremand-les biem. Et eis tivieront ladres por lauize, poniend-les cossimul tierre taze. Et dixieront-eis, 'Veit, hacens oude, et une torrize cuy chagoin ascendrá tam out com le ciel; veit, hacens-nos noin main, praque non ut vages tras le face du mond.' Et Deu descendiou pra ver l'oude et la torrize que les hizes eiguabant. Et Deu dizou: "Ves, sont tout une gent et tient une lingue; et hic est sóu le sau de que puedent hacer, et za non será possible prohiber-les ui propuêt d'eis. Veit, descendens et privar-les la sance da lingue, praque non puedent hacer-se chars anviz.' Ei le Doin Deu aleiou-les a cada part du mond, et diou eiguar l'oude. Ei feu nominàt 'Babel,' porque ay Deu privou la sance da lingue et d'ai Deu aleiou-les tras la face du mond.
