The Tower of Babel (Genesis 11: 1-9)
Vayehi khol-ha'arets safa ekhat udvarim akhadim.
Vayehi bnas'am mikedem vayyimtse'u vik'a b'erets Shin'ar
Vayyomru ish el-re'ehu hava nilbena lvenim venisrefa lisrefa
vatehi lahem hallvena l'aven vehakhemor haya lahem lakhomer.
Vayyomru hava nivne-lanu ir umigdal verosho vashamayim vena'ase-lanu
shem pen-nafuts al-pnei khol-ha'arets.
Vayyered Adonai lir'ot et-ha'ir ve'et-hammigdal asher banu
Vayyomer Adonai hen am ekhad vesafa akhat lekhullam veze hakhillam
la'asot ve'ata lo-yibatser mehem kol asher yazmu la'asot.
Vhava nerda vnovla sham sfatam asher lo yishme'u ish sefat re'ehu.
Vayyafets Adonai otam misham al-pnei khol-ha'arets vayyakhdelu
Al-ken kara shmah bavel ki-sham balal Adonai shefat kol-ha'arets
umisham hefitsam Adonai al-pnei kol-ha'arets.
