1And the angel of the Lord took me and brought me to a second heaven and showed me there also a door like the first and said, Let us go in through it. 2And we went in, carried on wings, about a sixty days' journey. 3And he showed me a plain there too, and it was full of men; and they looked like dogs, and their feet like stags' feet. 4And I asked the angel, My lord, I pray you tell me who these are? 5And he said, These are the men who planned the building of the tower; for the men you see deported multitudes of both men and women to make bricks (and no woman who was making bricks was allowed to stop, even when about to give birth to a child, but had to produce her child while she was still making the bricks, and support her child in her apron, and go on making the bricks). 6And when they had built the tower to a height of four hundred and sixty-three cubits the Lord appeared to them and confused their speech. 7And they took a drill and tried to bore through the heaven, saying, Let us see whether the heaven is made of clay, or of brass, or of iron. 8When God saw this he would not allow them to, but struck them with blindness and confusion of speech, and made them as you see.
