Genesis 11:1-9 contains the story of the Tower of Babel. In it all the people of the world speak one language. A community traveling from the east decides to build a city and erect a tower on the plains of Shinar in order to make a name for itself and to prevent its dispersion throughout the whole earth. God comes down to see the city and the tower that the people have been building. God’s response to the people’s action is to confuse their language and scatter them all over the earth.
