The Tower of Babel

“So the Lord scattered them from there over all the earth, and they stopped building the city.  That is why it was called Babel—because there the Lord confused the language of the whole world. From there the Lord scattered them over the face of the whole earth.”  Genesis 11:8-9

God had commanded them to fill the whole earth and disperse after the flood, but instead they congregated close.  In the future there will be a reverse of the Tower of Babel:

““For then I will give to the peoples purified lips,
That all of them may call on the name of the Lord,
To serve Him shoulder to shoulder.”  Zephaniah 3:9
