Land of the Shinar

The Tower of Bavel - confound of language

11:1(S:vii) Making of the Nations

And the whole eretz was of echad saphah, and of devarim achadim (common words).

11:2 And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there.

11:3 And they said one to another:

"Go to, let us make brick, and burn them throughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter."

11:4 And they said:

"Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top [may reach] to shamayim (שׁמים); and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole eretz."

11:5 And ADONAI (יהוה) came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded.

11:6 And ADONAI (יהוה) said:

"Hinei, the people [is] one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.

11:7 Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech.

11:8 So ADONAI (יהוה) scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city.

11:9 Therefore is the name of it called Bavel; because ADONAI (יהוה) did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did ADONAI (יהוה) scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.

11:10 These [are] the Toldot Shem:

Shem (שׁם) [was] hundred years old, and begat Arpakshad (ארפּכשׁד) two years after the mabbul (flood):

11:11 And Shem (שׁם) lived after he begat Arpakshad (ארפּכשׁד) five hundred years, and begat sons and banot.

11:12 And Arpakshad (ארפּכשׁד) lived five and thirty years, and begat Shelakh:

11:13 And Arpakshad (ארפּכשׁד) lived after he begat Shelakh four hundred and three years, and begat sons and banot.

11:14 And Shelakh lived thirty years, and begat Ever:

11:15 And Shelakh lived after he begat Ever four hundred and three years, and begat sons and banot.

11:16 And Ever lived four and thirty years, and begat Peleg:

11:17 And Ever lived after he begat Peleg four hundred and thirty years, and begat sons and banot.

11:18 And Peleg lived thirty years, and begat Reu:

11:19 And Peleg lived after he begat Reu two hundred and nine years, and begat sons and banot.

11:20 And Reu lived two and thirty years, and begat Serug:

11:21 And Reu lived after he begat Serug two hundred and seven years, and begat sons and banot.

11:22 And Serug lived thirty years, and begat Nachor:

11:23 And Serug lived after he begat Nachor two hundred years, and begat sons and banot.

11:24 And Nachor lived nine and twenty years, and begat Terach:

11:25 And Nachor lived after he begat Terach an hundred and nineteen years, and begat sons and banot.

11:26 And Terach lived seventy years, and begat Avram, Nachor, and Haran.

11:27 Now these [are] the Toldot Terach:

Terach begat Avram, Nachor, and Haran; and Haran begat Lot.

11:28 And Haran died before his av Terach in the earth his nativity, in Ur Kasdim.

11:29 (Maftir)

And Avram and Nachor took them wives:

11:30 But Sarai was barren; she [had] no child.

11:31 And Terach took Avram his son, and Lot Ben Haran his son's son, and Sarai his daughter in law, his ben Avram's wife; and they went forth with them from Ur Kasdim, to go into the earth Kenaan; and they came to Haran, and dwelt there.

11:32  וַיִּהְי֣וּ יְמֵי־תֶ֔רַח חָמֵ֥שׁ שָׁנִ֖ים וּמָאתַ֣יִם שָׁנָ֑ה וַיָּ֥מָת תֶּ֖רַח בְּחָרָֽן׃ ס

Vayihyu yemei-Terach, chamesh shanim umatayim shanah; vayamot Terach beCharan

And the days of Terach were two hundred and five years: and Terach died in Haran.

Note

 

We have learn that Avraham was known to shattered the idols in Ur Kasdim, was chased to Haran where he continued to proclaimed his new-found faith his Creator of Universe, and was at that time addressed by Hashem and sent to the land of Yisrael (Mishneh Torah, Laws of Idolatry 1,3).

shamayim heaven, sky: - astrologers *(1), compass (1), eretz (1), heaven (191), heaven and the highest (2), heaven and the highest heavens (1), heaven of heavens (1), heavenly (3), heavens (151), heavens and the highest (1), highest heaven (1), highest heaven (1), highest heavens (4), horizons (1), other *(1), sky (50).

Avraham's biographic are:

1. His call by Hashem in Mesopotamia (Acts7:2, 3).

2. His journey to Haran, then to Kenaan (Acts 7: 4).

3. Hashem's promise of the land to Avraham, though the patriarch himself was not given any of it—as was proved by his purchase of the cave of Machpelah as a burial place (v. 5). The fulfillment of that promise is still future (Hebrews 11:13-40).

4. Hashem's prediction of Yisrael's bondage in Mitzrayim and of eventual deliverance (vv. 6, 7). Both parts of this prediction were accomplished by men who had been rejected by the nation: Yosef (vv. 9-19); Moshe (vv. 20-36). The four hundred years mentioned in verse 6 and in Beresheet 15:13 refer to the time when the Jewish people were afflicted in Mitzrayim. The four hundred and thirty years cited in Shemot 12:40 and Galates 3:17 cover the period from the arrival of Yaakov and his family in Mitzrayim to the Exodus and the giving of the Torah. The Yisraelites were not persecuted during their first thirty years in Mitzrayim; in fact, they were treated quite royally.
