REVIEW: The Story Of The Tower Of Babel By Alice Joyce Davidson






Now the whole world had one language and a common speech. As people moved eastward, they found a plain in Shinar and settled there. They said to each other, “Come, let’s make bricks and bake them thoroughly.” They used brick instead of stone, and tar for mortar. Then 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; otherwise we will be scattered over the face of the whole earth.

” But the LORD came down to see the city and the tower the people were building. The 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. Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other.” So the LORD scattered them from there over all the earth, and they stopped building the city. That 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.

Genesis 11: 1-9

This story is from the series Alice in the Bible Land. This story starts with a girl named Alice, who narrates the story for us.

The Tower of Babel was an important biblical event that happened after the big flood, which destroyed the whole world. God saved Noah’s family and blessed them to fill the earth. Noah had lots of descendants and their family was growing bigger and bigger. The whole family spoke a single language and one day while they were roaming around the desert they found a valley called Shinar and they stayed there to build a huge city.

The Generation of Noah after the flood.

They thought to build a tall tower and proclaimed the tower would reach heaven through the sky. So they started to build the tower using bricks baked out of clay. Instead of being thankful for the blessings they received from God, they boasted every day about their tower.

Planning of the tower of Babel.

Due to their boasting, God commanded his Angels to mix up their language and disperse them. Will the tower get completed and people will understand what they are talking about?

People bragged about the tower and wanted to build it above heaven.

Are we misusing our power and always feeling proud about our work or family status or money or possession or riches? Are we thinking about the creator or worldly things? Let’s not forget that and end up falling like the tower of Babel.

“when we are blessed to have power,
We should not use it for fame,pride,glory,famous name,
We should use our blessings in good and loving ways,
And god will smile on us,
With more blessings for our days”
