The whole world had one language and a common idea.
As men moved eastward,
they found a plain in Shinar and settled there.
They started building a tower with an intention
to reach the heavens,
so that they could make a name for themselves.
But God looked at it
and did not like what they were doing.
So God scattered them, by confusing their language,
from there over all the earth,
and they stopped building the tower.
