In the beginning

In the beginning was the Word , and the Word was with God , and the Word was God . The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made . In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. (John 1:1-5)

Time proceeds as quickly as an arrow proceeds Measure the speed of flies in the same way that you measure the speed of an arrow Measure the speed of flies in the same way that an arrow measures the speed of flies Measure the speed of flies that resemble an arrow Flies of a particular kind, time-flies, are fond of an arrow

Genesis 11:1-9 And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech. 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. And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for mortar. And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth. And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the children builded. And the Lord said, Behold, 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. Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech. So the Lord scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city. Therefore is the name of it called Babel (confusion); because the Lord did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the Lord scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.

And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech.
