Gen. 11:1-9 The Tower of Babel

If you would like to continue reading my writings, I have moved to Loving God Holy at WordPress. Thank you.

Now the whole world had one language and a common speech. 2As men moved eastward, they found a plain in Shinar and settled there.

3They said to each other, "Come, let's make bricks and bake them thoroughly." They used brick instead of stone, and tar for mortar. 4Then they said, "Come, let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens, so that we may make a name for ourselves and not be scattered over the face of the whole earth."
Did they want to be like God?
5But the LORD came down to see the city and the tower that the men were building. 6The LORD said, "If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them. 7Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other."
Did God understand that if He left us up to our own 'free will,' we would find ways to go astray? Was He trying to help us? I believe so.
8So the LORD scattered them from there over all the earth, and they stopped building the city. 9That is why it was called Babel--because there the LORD confused the language of the whole world. From there the LORD scattered them over the face of the whole earth.
And that is how I ended up here!
