    it's not just one culture either, there is followers of Christ in all and then there is deniers, and do the work of the evil one, but God does know the hearts of all, so pray for all, as I said he loves us all, but not sin, he gave us the way to be free from our sin in our Lord and savior, he is the only way in God Bless you all

    God told Noah his family would seed the world,but as for some saying God cursed anyone , i think they would want to consider who comes into ones heart and mind that seeks to steal and destroy, God made a oath to Noah and God never lies, I pray for those that misconstrue the word of God keep asking for wisdom.

    The Lord is beautiful, but do not be disillusioned by the misogynist views within the book. Wives, do not be subordinate to your husbands...be their equals. Eat shellfish and let others love who they want to love. Hate is not allowed. God Bless.
  • Love god

    As we know the heart is deceitful and wicked above all things. God who has the ability to see the hearts of all men look at the motive that was behind the people true desires to build there own city and own tower to reach heaven. I believe in there own selfish will those words were utter not to build for God's glory but rather than to glorify themselves. We must remember God is the creator.

    I am having a real problem with this chapter. "confound their language" "scattered them abroad"

    Does God segregated them, one from another, and change their languate in order to keep them from plotting and planning evil and working together to go against his word? God's intent seems clear that they were to live apart. So are all cultures a product of this action by God?
  • Uriel
    The confounding of the languages is what spured the scattering
  • Confused
    Thank you for the response Uriel. You are correct. And, I must not have been clear in my writing, as I was actually asking if God's purpose was to create different cultures, languages, and borders to keep us from working together for evil purposes?
  • Uriel
    It seems like that may be the motivation from the beginning. I never considered that the same would hold true today, but it does I presume.
  • A Reader
    Once again, 'God' curses his beloved creation of man to live in separation and confusion. Why? Because people wanted to build a great city and tower to reach the sky (which is all 'heaven' refers to). If this story is true, isn't this single act by 'God' THE reason for all of the disparate beliefs throughout the world, THE reason for every conflict that has occurred? Seems a little harsh to me

    Verse 4~The people were disobeying Jehovah God in his purpose to have the people spread out and inhabit the earth. They were selfishly trying to make a name for themselves.
  • A disciple
    "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." God separated men into their own languages and countries for their good, to curtail the evil things that they began to imagine under Nimrod at Babel. Eventually this too must give way for the completion of the age.

    HIMSELF ! elohim God the son holy ghost and Father their speaking with each other another good exmple of why Jesus is the creator therefore hes the Godhead!His body (Son) his spirit(holy ghost) and his soul(THE FATHER) FOR IN HIM DWELLETH THE FULLNESS OF THE GODHEAD BODILY
  • A disciple
    R4Love; The Bible says that there are three Divine Persons in heaven; the Father the Word and the Holy Spirit. Jesus said many times that He and the Father are one and that He is "I AM" and that He does everything He sees the Father do; even raising the dead. When God said, "Let us make man in our image," I AM was pronouncing our very coming into being; and so we were made entirely by God's Words.
  • R4Love
    I have a question. I just started reading and in Gen. 1:26, it states "...Let us make man in our image, after our likeness". Who was He talking to?
  • Robert Blanding
    After reading each comments, I agree with each of these: Stacy's- Chatauna Robinson's- Brenner's- Red's and Kiragu's From my bible study, they are right on target. Praise Yeshua Jesus !!! 0

    Verse 1: This verse shows that originally the earth was full of people who spoke only one language.
  • A disciple
    Mr. Smith; Consider what the LORD said, with the view that they had raised up a city and a tower of rebellion against the heavens. Read Psalm 2 (for example), and think of that unrestrained "imagination" as that they thought to cast God out from the world and all influence upon the hearts and minds of men; like they do still to this day. The evil seed planted in men's souls, is coming to the full.

    MrSmith,2Cor.10:5"Casting down imaginations and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God,and bring into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ"I'm not talking about inventions or getting out of a jam.Gen.6;5,Gen.8;21,Deut.2;19,Luke1;51,etc.
    The Holy Spirit helps with prayer,Scripture teaches us to rely on Him,not our own understanding.Proverb 3;5
  • Mr. Smith
    v 6, From God's mouth to our ears. NOTHING will be restrained (or nothing will be impossible) from them (to them) which they have IMAGINED to do. The power of the human imagination is infinite. God made us after his likeness, a creator. Every invention of man started in the imagination. Whatever situation we're facing we can imagine our way out of it.

    Cheryl - Gen. 10:31 (not 34) and Ch.11:1; the Bible isn't written 'chronologically' - in the exact order things happened. And that's God's intention: so we would STUDY to shew ourselves approved, 2 Tim. 2:15; v. 23.
  • Irene123
    V.10 - It's interesting only Arphaxad is mentioned; Shem had several sons.
  • Irene123
    V.4 - " ..... lest we be scattered upon the whole face of the earth". And that's exactly how God punished them. Man still today thinks he can out maneuver God.
  • Irene123
    " ..... people were too fast .... "; honestly! don't you know God is - omnipotent and omniscient? God CONTROLS the population; it does NOT get out of His control. My God (Jesus) is somewhat bigger and more powerful and smarter than other's 'gods' on here.
  • James halverson
    PEOPLE were advancing to fast so GOD slow them down this happen a lot in history war and sickness look to the knew world order trying make one country ITS satins plan to wipe people out,

  • Michael C.
    Cheryl, the original text did not have chapters and verses; they were added later to make the Scriptures easier to reference for the Bible scholar. Because it was so popular, it became the regular way to copy the Bible. We should read it in the whole context it was first written. This should help answer your question. Also, it isn't always exactly chronologically written; but according to subject.
