Genesis 11:4

Καὶ εἶπαν· Δεῦτε οἰκοδομήσωμεν ἑαυτοῖς πόλιν καὶ πύργον, οὗ ἡ κεφαλὴ ἔσται ἕως τοῦ οὐρανοῦ, καὶ ποιήσωμεν ἑαυτοῖς ὄνομα πρὸ τοῦ διασπαρῆναι ἐπὶ προσώπου πάσης τῆς γῆς.

And they said, “Come, let us build for ourselves a city and a tower, whose top will reach the sky, and let us make for ourselves a name before we be scattered on the face of all the earth.”

ויאמרו הבה נבנה־לנו עיר ומגדל וראשׁו בשׁמים ונעשׂה־לנו שׁם פן־נפוץ על־פני כל־הארץ׃


* ποιήσωμεν ἑαυτοῖς | ποιήσομεν ἑαυτῶν
* οὗ ἡ κεφαλὴ ἔσται | οὗ ἔσται ἡ κεφαλὴ
* top OR head
* the sky OR heaven
