Transcription of this text by Corey Murray

  1. Byla že jest zemlja jazyku jedinaho i reči jednostajnoje.
  2. I jehda idoša ko-vostoku solnca, znašli sut' polě v-zemli Sennar i prebyša nanem.
  3. I reče jedin každyj ko-druhu svojemu, "Pojdemo, i nadelajmo plit i spalimo je ohnem." I byša im plity v-kamenja mesto i klej v-melu mesto.
  4. I rekoša, "Podte, i včinimo sobě hrad i stolp jeho že verx dadosjahajet' doněbesi: i včinim slavno imja naše, pervej neželi rozyjdem sja po-vsex zemljax."
  5. I stupil jest Hospod' videti hrad i stolp je že činiša synově Adamovy.
  6. I reče, "Sě, jediny sut' ljudije, i jedinostajnyj jest jazyk vsem. I počali sut' seje delati i ne prestanut' ôt myšlenej sbojx, dondeže i delom ne napolnjat'.
  7. Sehodlja, pojdite stupmo i smesim tam jazyk ix, da ne porazumejet' každyj hlasu bližne ho svojeho.
  8. I tako rozdelil jest ix Hospod' stoho mesta po-vsex zemljax, i prestaša staviti hrad.
  9. I sehoradi nazbano jest imja hradu tomu Smešenije, poněže tu smesilsja jest jazyk vseja zemli, i ôt tole rozsejal je Hospod' po-vsex stranax.
