In the beginning, all people spoke a single language. As they journey to the east and populated the earth, they began to build great city with high tower reaching to the skies. They were proud to have an eternal monument to themselves, and not for the glory of God (v4). They thought that the high tower will unite them, protect them in case another flood happens, and keep them from scattering all over the world. And the Lord came down to see the city and saw their evil motive and destructive goal for the whole humanity. God believes that in one language, humans can accomplish all things and nothing will be unattainable for them. So He confused their tongues and gave them different languages so that they would not understand each other’s words. So they left off to build the city, called Babel, and saw that the Hand of God was against their desires. Since then, people were scattered and never come all together again. But on the second coming of Christ, He will gather all believers in all generations before His presence to reward them for their faithfulness unto His kingdom. God bless.
