The Tower of Babel: From One Language to Confusion

The Tower of Babel: From One Language to Confusion: With the entire earth under one language, satan stood up through Nimrod, son of Cush. Nimrod galvanized the people to build a tower that would reach to heaven in support of Lucifer, who has the keen desire to return to where he was thrown out.

Genesis 11:1-9 KJV

[1] And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech. [2] 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. [3] And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them throughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter.

[4] 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. [5] And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded.

[6] 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. [7] Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.

[8] So the Lord scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city. [9] Therefore is the name of it called Babel; 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.

Brief Comments

At this point in history, the entire earth was one language and dialect. The sons of Noah were all together still. They journeyed from the east, (possibly modern-day southern China or India (author’s discretion)). Nimrod and the people eventually found a plain in the land of Shinar (modern-day Iraq/Iran).

They decided to dwell there under the leadership of one Nimrod. The people decided to come up with the out of this world idea to build a tower or shuttle that would reach heaven. Nimrod did not want to be scattered across the globe but have a central location.

This opposed the LORD’s will and was contacted by cherub’s of mankind’s plans. The LORD came down to see the project and realized they would succeed if they aren’t apprehended. The ALMIGHTY ordered the cherubs to confuse the languages so it would stop the project.

Babel to Babylon

That is exactly what transpired and the project was discontinued. Historically, this is known as Babel, from where we get the name Babylon. The LORD confounded the language of all the earth, which had become even eviler than they were before the flood.

This most likely took place during the days of Peleg and Joktan, sons of Eber, a descendant of Shem. It is written that during their days the earth was divided (Genesis 10:25).
