The people in the lesson wanted to build the tower as a monument to themselves, but God
Bible Verse: And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth. Genesis 11:4 (NKJV)
When it was finished, the animals went into the ark, Noah and his wife, their 3 sons: Shem, Ham, Japheth and their wives went in. God closed the door and it rained. It rained for 40 days and 40 nights and there was water on the earth for 150 days.
When it was dry, they came out, and Noah made an altar and offered sacrifices to God. God put a rainbow in the sky and said it was a reminder of His promise that He would never destroy the earth by water again.
FYI: 1.) Babel is like the Hebrew word for confusion & 2.) there are 2800 known different languages in the world now.
