The Curse, Reversed

Gen 11 (NIV) But the Lord came down to see the city and the tower the people were building. 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. Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other.”

 Acts 2 (NIV)  Now there were staying in Jerusalem God-fearing Jews from every nation under heaven. When they heard this sound, a crowd came together in bewilderment, because each one heard their own language being spoken

  And the story continues.


  1. Not quite reversed, more patched up...
    Genesis - many languages, no understanding
    Acts - many languages, everybody understood.

    Perhaps the Holy Spirit should sign on as an EU interpreter in Brussels. It would always make perfect sense, for a change.

  2. Oh I don't know. I love languages. The world would be emptier without their diversity.
