Written by Student Rabbi Janet Darley

 עַל-כֵּן קָרָא שְׁמָהּ, בָּבֶל, כִּי-שָׁם בָּלַל יְהוָה, שְׂפַת כָּל-הָאָרֶץ; וּמִשָּׁם הֱפִיצָם יְהוָה, עַל-פְּנֵי כָּל-הָאָרֶץ. 


Therefore the name of it was called Babel, because there the Eternal confused the language of all the earth and from there the Eternal scattered them over the face of the earth.
