Now everybody had one dialect and the same words.
Everybody came from the East and discovered a plain in the land of Shinar and stayed there'
Each person and his neighbor said to one another "Come on. Let's make mud and bake it" These people used baked mud for stones and tar for mortar.
People said "Come on. Let's make a city and a tower whose top reaches heaven. Let us make a name for ourselves. Otherwise, we will go everywhere."
The Lord came down to see the city and the tower that the people were building.
The Lord said "Oh! People are united and have one dialect and want to do this. Now, if that want to do something, they can do it.
Let's come and go down and destroy their dialect so that one person doesn't understand the speech of his neighbor."
The Lord sent people everywhere. People did not continue building the city.
Therefore, people called the city"Babel" because in that place the Lord destroyed everybody's dialect and sent them everywhere.
