The picture on the left is the planned Amazon Arlington (VA, USA) headquarters which will be a 350-foot tall “Helix,” composed of steel, glass and even live trees. (Image: NBBJ, Amazon). The picture on the right is an artist rendering of the original Tower of Babel, which was built by Nimrod in his efforts to reach up to heaven.
And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech.
2 And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar, and they dwelt there.
3 And they said one to another, “Come, let us make bricks and burn them thoroughly.” And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for mortar.
4 And they said, “Come, 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.”
5 And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower which the children of men built.
6 And the Lord said, “Behold, the people are one and they have all one language, and this they begin to do; and now nothing will be withheld from them which they have imagined to do.
7 Come, let Us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.”
8 So the Lord scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth; and they left off building the city.
9 Therefore is the name of it called Babel [that is, Confusion], because the Lord did there confound the language of all the earth; and from thence did the Lord scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.Genesis 11:1-9
Is this a hint as to what is about to happen?
