B  That they found a plain in the land of Shinar; And they dwelt there (Gen 11:2)
C   And they said one to another  (Gen 11:3)
D    Go to, let us make brick, and burn them throughly (Gen 11:3)
E     And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter. (Gen 11:3)
F      And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower,
F      whose top may reach unto heaven; (Gen 11:4)
G       And let us make us a name,
G       lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth. (Gen 11:4)
X          And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower,
X          which the children of men builded. (Gen 11:5)

F'      And the LORD said, Behold, the people [is] one,
F'      and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: (Gen 11:6)
E'     And now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. (Gen 11:6)
D'    Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, (Gen 11:7)
C'   That they may not understand one another's speech. (Gen 11:7)
B'  And they left off to build the city. Therefore is the name of it called Babel; (Gen 11:8,9)
A' because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: (Gen 11:9)
A' and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth. (Gen 11:9)
