After we wade through genealogies of Noah’s sons, we encounter the tower of Babel, a monument to man’s rebellion against God. Being made in the image of God, these men imitate their creator by creating, which is all well and good, except that they defy God’s command to fill the earth and attempt to rob God of glory by making a name for themselves. God graciously uses language to scatter them so they can see the expansive majesty of His Creation rather than stare at the cute little tower they’ve made. In time, Abram is born, and God makes great promises as He calls Abram to follow His commands.
