We focus on the tower in this passage. The tower was not evil. It was not the tower but the hearts of the people were determined to make themselves god over their own lives. Nimrod a descendant of Ham was an empire builder. Many believe that Nimrod was the leader of this effort to build this city. He was a mighty hunter before the LORD: wherefore it is said, Even as Nimrod the mighty hunter before the LORD. 10And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, and Erech, and Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar. 11Out of that land went forth Asshur, and builded Nineveh, and the city Rehoboth, and Calah, 12And Resen between Nineveh and Calah: the same is a great city. Babylon was the nation that captured Israel in 597 BC and held them captive for 70 years. Today mankind is seeking to build Babel again. And they will as Babylon comes back in the book of Revelation. There is a spiritual Babylon and a Physical Babylon coming and may already be here. Babylon represents Man always wanting to create His own utopia. Man wants to unify under their own name and their own purposes and leave God completely out.
