The Language of Goodness

Babel—Genesis 11:1-9

“Now the whole earth had one language and one speech. And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar, and they dwelt there. Then they said to one another, "Come, let us make bricks and bake them thoroughly." They had brick for stone, and they had asphalt for mortar. And they said, "Come, let us build ourselves a city, and a tower whose top is in the heavens; let us make a name for ourselves, lest we be scattered abroad over the face of the whole earth." But the LORD came down to see the city and the tower which the sons of men had built. And the LORD said, "Indeed the people are one and they all have one language, and this is what they begin to do; now nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from them. Come, let Us go down and there confuse their language, that they may not understand one another's speech." So the LORD scattered them abroad from there over the face of all the earth, and they ceased building the city. Therefore its name is called Babel, because there the LORD confused the language of all the earth; and from there the LORD scattered them abroad over the face of all the earth”

The Language of Goodness

Babel—Genesis 11:1-9

“Toda la tierra hablaba la misma lengua y las mismas palabras. Y aconteció que según iban hacia el oriente, hallaron una llanura en la tierra de Sinar, y se establecieron allí. Y se dijeron unos a otros: Vamos, fabriquemos ladrillos y cozámoslos bien. Y usaron ladrillo en lugar de piedra, y asfalto en lugar de mezcla. Y dijeron: Vamos, edifiquémonos una ciudad y una torre cuya cúspide llegue hasta los cielos, y hagámonos un nombre famoso , para que no seamos dispersados sobre la faz de toda la tierra. Y el SEÑOR descendió para ver la ciudad y la torre que habían edificado los hijos de los hombres. Y dijo el SEÑOR: He aquí, son un solo pueblo y todos ellos tienen la misma lengua. Y esto es lo que han comenzado a hacer, y ahora nada de lo que se propongan hacer les será imposible. Vamos, bajemos y allí confundamos su lengua, para que nadie entienda el lenguaje del otro. Así los dispersó el SEÑOR desde allí sobre la faz de toda la tierra, y dejaron de edificar la ciudad. Por eso fue llamada Babel, porque allí confundió el SEÑOR la lengua de toda la tierra; y de allí los dispersó el SEÑOR sobre la faz de toda la tierra.”

Babel

  • Since Babel there has been confusion because of differences in language.
  • Sometimes we have confusion even speaking the same language!
  • Communication problems can be magnified by differences in culture.

The Language of Goodness

Communication without Words

In the Family

“Wives, likewise, be submissive to your own husbands, that even if some do not obey the word, they, without a word, may be won by the conduct of their wives, when they observe your chaste conduct accompanied by fear. Do not let your adornment be merely outward—arranging the hair, wearing gold, or putting on fine apparel—rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God” (1Peter 3:1-4).

“Asimismo vosotras, mujeres, estad sujetas a vuestros maridos, de modo que si algunos de ellos son desobedientes a la palabra, puedan ser ganados sin palabra alguna por la conducta de sus mujeres al observar vuestra conducta casta y respetuosa. Y que vuestro adorno no sea externo: peinados ostentosos, joyas de oro o vestidos lujosos, sino que sea el yo interno, con el adorno incorruptible de un espíritu tierno y sereno, lo cual es precioso delante de Dios” (1Peter 3:1-4)

“You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men. "You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven” (Matthew 5:13-16).

“Vosotros sois la sal de la tierra; pero si la sal se ha vuelto insípida, ¿con qué se hará salada otra vez? Ya para nada sirve, sino para ser echada fuera y pisoteada por los hombres. Vosotros sois la luz del mundo. Una ciudad situada sobre un monte no se puede ocultar; ni se enciende una lámpara y se pone debajo de un almud, sino sobre el candelero, y alumbra a todos los que están en la casa. Así brille vuestra luz delante de los hombres, para que vean vuestras buenas acciones y glorifiquen a vuestro Padre que está en los cielos”

(Matthew 5:13-16).

“Beloved, I beg you as sojourners and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts which war against the soul, having your conduct honorable among the Gentiles, that when they speak against you as evildoers, they may, by your good works which they observe, glorify God in the day of visitation. Therefore submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord's sake, whether to the king as supreme…” (1Peter 2:11-13).

“Amados, os ruego como a extranjeros y peregrinos, que os abstengáis de las pasiones carnales que combaten contra el alma. Mantened entre los gentiles una conducta irreprochable, a fin de que en aquello que os calumnian como malhechores, ellos, por razón de vuestras buenas obras, al considerarlas, glorifiquen a Dios en el día de la visitación. Someteos, por causa del Señor, a toda institución humana, ya sea al rey, como autoridad…” (1Peter 2:11-13).
