Why did God decide to change the people's language was the question raised as the study examined this particular chapter of Scripture. Looking through the chapter we discover the reason mankind wanted to establish a city and build a large tower was to ensure that they would not be scattered across the face of the earth. It's interesting to note, that their fear was exactly what came upon them. The Bible does not tell us how the people knew that God was intending for them to populate the entire world but we would speculate that this was a direct teaching handed down to them from Noah. Prior to coming to the plain of Shinar the people had been nomadic travellers having left the area where the Ark settled at Mount Ararat.
