In the past, the whole earth had only one language and people used the same language to communicate. They migrated from the east and settled down on a plain.
They used bricks to build themselves a city and wanted to build a tower with its top reaching the heaven. They wanted people to know their glory so that they wouldn't scatter across the face of the earth.
God came down to see the city and people’s deeds. He said, “You are one people, and you all have one language; nothing would stop what you plan to do."
However, the people became too proud of themselves. Therefore, God and the angels came down and confused their language so that they couldn’t understand what each other said.
From then on, God scattered them on the face of the earth and they stopped building the city. That is why the tower was called Babel, which means to jumble.
