Tower of Babel. Copyrighted.

The Tower of Babel

Many generations after Noah, when the whole earth still spoke the same language, people traveled to a plain in the Middle East and settled there.

Then they said to one another, “Let’s build a city and a tower, and let’s make a name for ourselves, so we won’t be scattered around the whole earth.”

Building Tower of Babel. Copyrighted.
The people made a tower designed for worshiping the sun, moon and stars. Mankind had chosen to worship God’s creations instead of the Lord Himself.

This decision was a direct refusal to obey God’s command to go out and fill the earth. Also, the tower was designed for worshiping the sun, moon and stars. Mankind had chosen to worship God’s creations instead of the Lord Himself. The Lord looked upon the city and tower which these people were building.

And He said, “Behold, the people are organizing as one group and since they all speak the same language, nothing they imagine to do will be held back from them. Let us go down and confuse their language, so that they cannot understand each other’s speech.” And the Lord mixed up their language, causing them to stop building the city.

Leaving the Tower of Babel. Copyrighted.

Therefore the name of that city became “Babel,” which means confusion; because there the Lord multiplied language on the earth, causing people to scatter abroad.
