The Tower of Babel - God Confuses the Builders' Language and Scatters Them over the Earth
“Therefore was the name of it called Babel; because Jehovah did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did Jehovah scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.” Genesis 11:9 ASV
Ilustration of people scattering after their language was confused during the building of the Tower of Babel. God, with an angel on each side holding flaming swords is seen in a cloud above the tower. He points away, sending the people to all corners of the earth. A crowd of people is scattering, on horses, on foot, and with wagons. Their animals are with them, including donkeys, goats, sheeps, and a dog. The tower is at the center of the image.
