Chapter 11: One Language/The Tower of Babel

We learn that all men on the earth spoke the same language. The people go to the land of Shinar and decide to build a city and a tower out of bricks to reach heaven. God goes down and confounds their language and causes them to not understand each other’s speech. The city and the tower is named “Babel”. God scatters the people all over the world. Remember the Jaredites in the Book of Mormon? They came from the time of the scattering of the Tower of Babel! This was after the world was “separated” as well, meaning that the Jaredites came over across the sea, and landed somewhere in the South/Central America that we know today. Some scholars say that the Jaredites left the Tower of Babel and landed somewhere in current day Peru.

  • Eber begat Peleg:
    • Peleg begat: Reu

              • Haran begat: Lot, Milcah and Iscah
              • Abram and Nahor got married; the name of Abram’s wife was Sarai; the name of Nahor’s wife was Milcah the daughter of Haran.Abram’s wife, Sarai was barren and unable to have children. Terah, took Abram, Lot, Sarai and went forth to Ur to the land of Canaan, unto Haran to dwell there. Terah dies at the age of 205.

Chapter 12: Abram the Great Nation

God tells Abram that he and his decedents will be greatly blessed. God commands Abram to leave from his family and go to a land that he will show him. Abram does as the Lord commands and takes his wife Sarai and his nephew, the son of Lot. They travel through the land of Canaan, through a place called Sichem and the plain of Moreh. Then passing through a mountain east of Beth-el and Hai on the east. Abram and Sarai go down to Egypt and tells her to tell anyone who asks that he is her brother, so that he will not be killed. Because the men in Egypt would take a liking to Sarai, because she was fair. When they arrive in Egypt, Pharaoh sees Sarai and desires to marry her, but Abram causes plagues Pharaoh and his house because of this. Pharaoh finds out that Abram is the husband of Sarai and commands them both to leave.
