As the family of the people grew, so did the greed, jealousy, sin, etc. of the people started increasing. Some people began to consider themselves to be like God. People thought of making a tall building that would have been a tower. People wanted to reach heaven with the help of that tower. And many people wanted to put themselves in the place of God. Everyone started building that tower together. Gradually the height of that tower started increasing.
God was watching these actions of human beings. Man is also a very strange creature who wants to come to heaven without doing anything and some have started thinking of himself as God. In this situation, God thought of teaching everyone a lesson. They all spoke the same language. God changed everyone’s language. After this, no one was able to talk to each other. Everyone got confused, no one was able to understand anyone’s point and no one was able to explain his point to others.
Such people started fighting among themselves and one by one people started leaving that place and leaving from there. People would have been needed to complete Babel’s tower but people started leaving from there. Because of this, the tower of Babel could not be completed. In this way, God again taught everyone a lesson.
Jared and his brother were living together when everyone had left the place. Both loved God and prayed to him. Now the language of both of them was different, yet they both wanted to be together.
One day Jared prayed to God that the language of the two brothers should be the same so that both of them could talk to each other. They wanted to live together like a family. God listened to his prayer and made their language the same. After this, both started talking to each other and started living with each other like a family. These later came to be called Jaredites.
That is why it is said that we should always follow the path shown by God, by this we will never do wrong.
