圣经经文

“So the LORD scattered them from there over all the earth, and they stopped building the city. That is why it was called Babel —because there the LORD confused the language of the whole world.” (Genesis 11:8-9) “于是,耶和华使他们从那里分散在全地上。他们就停工,不造那城 了。因为耶和华在那里变乱天下人的言语,使众人分散在全地上,所以那城名叫巴别 (就是变乱的意思)。”(创世记11:8-9)

意思

“Babel”指一片混乱,也指半途而废的计划。

来源及应用

世界由各种各样的文化和语言组成,但在世界伊始之时人类只有一种语言。人类出于骄傲,想要建造一座可以通达天堂的高塔,那样人们就能“传扬自己的名,免得分散在地上。”上帝得悉了人类的计划,就混淆了人类的语言并使人类分散在各地。人们不得不放弃建造巴别塔。这也正是巴别塔名字的由来,因为 “Babel(巴别)”在希伯来语的意思是“混淆”。
