The Tower of Babel...

"The whole earth used the same language and the same speech."
Genesis 11:1

Man in his arrogance wanted to build a city and a tower with its top in the heavens,
in order to be closer to GOD.

Genesis 11:2-4

The Lord came down to see the city and the tower which men had built.
And the Lord said, "Truly, they are one people and they all have the same
language. This is the beginning of what they will do. Hereafter they will
not be restrained from anything which they are determined to do."
Genesis 11:5-6

"Let US go down, and there confuse their language
so that they will not understand one another's speech."

Genesis 11:7

So the Lord scattered them from that place all over the earth;
and they stopped building the city.
Genesis 11:8
