Question Compare and contrast the judgment against the Tower of

Question: How does God’s curse

    against the Tower of Babel compare with the promised blessing of Abram?

    Genesis 11:1 Now the whole world had one language and a common speech. 2 As men moved eastward, they found a plain in Shinar and settled there.

Genesis 11:3 They said to each other, “Come,

    let’s make bricks and bake them thoroughly.” They used brick instead of stone, and tar for mortar. 4 Then they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens, so that we may make a name for ourselves and not be scattered over the face of the whole earth.”

    Genesis 11:5 But the LORD came down to see the city and the tower that the men were building. 6 The LORD said, “If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them. 7 Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other.”

    Genesis 11:8 So the LORD scattered them from there over all the earth, and they stopped building the city. 9 That is why it was called Babel because

    there the LORD confused the language of the whole world. From there the LORD scattered them over the face of the whole earth.

    Genesis 12:1 The LORD had said to Abram, “Leave your country, your people and your father’s

    household and go to the land I will show you.

    Genesis 12:2 “I will make you into a great nation and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing.

    Genesis 12:3 I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.”
