Babel means to confuse or confound in Hebrew. The story of the Tower of Babel shows the arrogance of humans to reach the heavens and make their name great. All the people were united in performing the same sin of pride and rebellion.
God teaches us by diving the people that if He wants to do something nothing can stop Him and we should always strive to glorify God and not ourselves. Relive this sad but significant story in the history of mankind.
