The tale of Babel Tower from beginning 11:1-9 tells from Biblical outlook about the wellspring of tongues and why many of them are unlike each other . The Babel Tower is indeed real, it is a seven-stepped ziggurat with a worship house to the god Marduk at its top. It was called 'Etemenanki' or "the worship house of the platform between heaven and earth" and was built in Babylon the greatstead sometime in sixth or seventh yearhundred.
Bellow is the tale:
- Now the whole earth had one tongue and the same words.
- And as folks wandered from the east, they found a flatland in Shinar and stayed there.
- And they said to one another, "Come, let us make bricks, and burn them thoroughly." And they had brick for stone, and earthpitch for tar.
- Then they said, "Come, let us build ourselves a greatstead and a tower with its top in the heavens, and let us make a name for ourselves, lest we be spread upon the face of the whole earth."
- And the Lord came down to see the borough and the tower, which the children of man had built.
- And the Lord said, "Behold, they are one folk, and they have all one tongue, and this is only the beginning of what they will do. And nothing that they put forth to do will now be out of bounds for them.
- Come, let us go down and there bewilder their tongue, so that they may not understand one another's speech."
- So the Lord spread them from there over the face of all the earth, and they left off building their greatstead.
- Therefore, its name was called Babel, because there the Lord bewilder the tongue of all the earth. And from there the Lord spread them over the face of all the earth.
