Tower of Babel 巴别通天塔





The Bible records the story of the Tower of Babel.

After the great flood, God used the rainbow as a basis to make a promise with mankind not to destroy the earth with floods. Later, when Noah's descendants established a country in Babylon, they gradually became arrogant and arrogant, and they doubted God's promise. They said to each other: "Let us build a city and a tower whose top will reach to the sky, so that we may make a name for ourselves, so that we may not be scattered throughout the earth." The city of Babylon and the Tower of Babel reaching into the sky. God saw the fall of human beings, so he separated the human language, so that they can no longer work together.

For thousands of years, people have believed that the story of the Tower of Babel is just a myth. However, archaeologists have discovered the ruins of a vaulted building made of stones and mud bricks on the ruins of ancient Babylon, with a large square well in the middle of the ruins. At first, archaeologists thought that this was the site of the Hanging Gardens. It was not until later that a stone tablet recording the orientation and style of the Tower of Babel was unearthed nearby that archaeologists learned that this was the base of the Tower of Babel.

This story reminds me to have a heart of awe. Human beings want to stand shoulder to shoulder with God, so they invite disasters. In my daily life, I also have to be humble, polite, respect my elders, and listen to uncle's teachings.
