Thoughts on the Tower of Babel (Genesis 11:1-9)

Genesis 11:1-9 contains the brief account of the Tower of Babel. Some write this off as a myth, partially because it seems too obviously connected to the word “babble”. While there is a tenuous connection to that term, not only in English, but also in Hebrew (sounds like the word for confusion) and many other languages throughout history.

But I believe this really happened. Even more, I believe this account helps establish the separation between man’s self-important pride and God’s holiness. The point of this whole (small) passage is that we are to be humble and allow God to be God.
