However, God was not pleased with these arrogant men who wanted to build a tower to heaven and be like gods themselves. What did God do to punish them?
He destroyed the city in a storm of fire and brimstone.
He confused their language and scattered them over the face of the earth.
He destroyed the tower with a tremendous bolt of lightning.
He sent a plague of locusts into the city.
