For many years after Noah’s death, the people multiplied on the earth, and all spoke the same language. – Slide 1
At one time they settled in a valley and made a plan together: ‘Let’s build a city and a great tower that will reach all the way to heaven!’ – Slide 2
In their pride, they wanted to show how great and powerful they were. – Slide 3
But God was displeased with the people’s desire for fame and glory. – Slide 4
To put a stop to this, all He did was simply confused their language. Very soon, they weren’t able to understand each other and the work on the tower stopped. – Slide 5
The people left the area, and the great tower was left unfinished. – Slide 6
