The Tower of Babel: What Was Up With lt?
The Tower of Babel by Pieter Bruegel the Elder (1563)
The Tower of Babel in the Bible
After the Great Flood, man had again begun to multiply and fill the earth. They all spoke one language and understood one another well. They decided to build a tower which was to reach to heaven, to make them equal to G‑d, and at the same time, to make it possible for them to stay together. This symbol of their divine strength, as they thought, was to be built in the valley of the Land of Shinear.
G‑d decided to destroy their arrogance by destroying their ability to understand one another. He, therefore, confused the people by splitting them up into seventy different nations and tribes, each with a language of its own, (hence the name Babel, meaning “confusion”).

Babel in Biblical Hebrew/Greekבבל
Meaning Gate Of God Anointed, Saturated Through Production, Through Drive, Through Propitiation
Etymology From the Sumerian phrase Bab-ilim, gate of god. From the verb בלל (balal), to mix with oil unto saturation. From (1) the prefix ב (be), in or through, and (2) the noun בול (bul), produce, or the noun בל (bel), drive, or the adverb בל (bal), worn away.
The Sumerian name of the city we know as Babel or Babylon was Bab-ilim, and that means Gate Of The Deity. But the Bible demands that our city was named Babel because YHWH did something to the common tongue. That something is conveyed by the somewhat similar Hebrew verb בלל (balal): “On account of this its name is called בבל — Babel — because YHWH balalled the speech of all the earth there” (Genesis 11:9):
(Note these numb errors also make “911”)
.. nice “god” we have here
Excerpted from: Abarim Publications’ Biblical Dictionary
The verb בלל (balal) means to mix something with oil, usually flour products, usually as ritualistic food preparation. The emphasis of this verb lies on saturation and overflowing: to fill something with oil until it can absorb no more and begins to reject an excess of oil. Noun בליל (belil) describes a very rich mix for animals to eat. Noun שבלול (shabbelul) describes a snail, or an animal that looks saturated with oil. Nouns תבל (tebel) describes sexually incompatible partners, and noun תבלל (teballul) tells of insoluble material that obstructs a person’s eye.
The verb יבל (yabal) speaks mostly of a flowing along some course, which of course requires the bottom of the course to be saturated and reject any further absorption. Noun יבל (yabal) means water course or conduit, noun יובל (yubal) means stream and noun אובל (‘ubal) means stream or river. Adjective יבל (yabbal) means suppurating (discharging pus from a wound). Noun יבול (yebul) denotes produce from the soil and noun בול (bul) means produce or outgrowth. Noun יובל (yobel) or יבל (yobel) describes “a carrier” or “a producer” or “something that drives a flow” (e.g. a trumpet, or the principle of Jubilee). Noun תבל (tebel) refers to the whole world-economy.
The above shows the cyclical and loud intensity, filling, production and sexual frustration leading to destruction and a reset/cataclysm. AKA, a ‘flow’ into the binary system of “10” or “K” for Kings and Killing. The 10 system is a system of “inTENsity” leading to ELEVEN or “El” Even – a return to death/rebirth/non-resolution or the mirror known as “11”
The sWorld versus the ‘authentic wisdom warrior’
A journey of “U” – a lifetime of experiences and quests and questions and inTENsities. If you live for non-resolution to the “meaning of all life” – you will pour “U” and all you unlearned backwards into the permanently attached “Q” or the Que – the waiting area until your next turn at ‘the game’ of Earth, gods and devils. The truth is not always what we expect.
More on Truth, True and Ruth
TR and chop sound -Example, true as “chrue”
it seems very common, especially in native English speakers, to pronounce a “tr” sound as “chr”, such as when “truck” is pronounced along the lines of “chruck”. This seems to be a fairly usual occurrence (other instances include “interesting/incheresting”, “trying/chrying”, etc.).
Truth and Church both start with the cha sound or ‘chop’.
The word church is alone as a word starting and ending with ‘ch’.
Affrication – ‘affliction/phonological process’
It is a named ‘affliction/phonological process’ called affrication. An occurrence in many MEDicated/USA English dialects. The phenomenon is one of co-articulation and not a phonological process.
Eminent phonetician John Wells argues in his blog that it already has been (thanks to @Sumelic for the link). His case in point is the pair century – sentry. https://www.phon.ucl.ac.uk/home/wells/blog0801.htm
Acts 2:11 Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God.
Titus 1:12 One of themselves, even a prophet of their own, said, the Cretians are alway liars, evil beasts, slow bellies.
Are all Cretans aka Cretians “LIARS”??
Despite this authority of holy writ, at least during the period 1611-1881, “all Cretians are liars” gets only 89 hits on Google, while “all Cretans are liars” gets 11,600.
There’s also a metrical foot called a cretic (ˉ˘ˉ). Another fascinating fact: in Modern Greek the word for ‘Cretan’ (Κρητικός) and the word for ‘critical’ (κριτικός) are homophones.
- Chah-Ruth Hertz vs Truth Hurts
- in Greek – Κρητικός vs κριτικός (means Cretan vs critical)
- Both examples above are homophones (sound the same)
“T” makes it fit
“T” means ‘fit to a T’ and that saying fits the “T” to a T as the letter “T” means a ‘perfect fit’ or ‘to make something set/ or fit’. The “T” as a first letter, makes the rest of the word’s concept ‘set or fit’.
“T” first and then “R” always make the ‘chop’ or ‘cha’ sound when together.
“Ruth” or AKA “COG”
Where does “Ruth” originate – Ruth illuminates the main theme of the Hebrew Bible:
In the Bible the Book of Ruth is placed between Judges and Samuel or between the Song of Songs and Lamentations.
… the main theme of the Hebrew Bible is COG: “the continuity of God’s people in their land” Continuity of “god” is the same as COG, a specific word as all words are but as an acronym, it is in our face daily as Continuity of Government or COG – the almighty force in everyone’s life/vision/focus or point of contention, today for 95%+ of the people.
Ruth in Hebrew רות
From The Story of Ruth – https://www.chabad.org/library/article_cdo/aid/111916/jewish/The-Story-of-Ruth.htm
Ruth was a Moabite princess of very fine character, who became the great-grandmother of King David. She was dissatisfied with the idol-worship of her own people, and when the opportunity arose, she gladly gave up the privileges of royalty in her land and accepted a life of poverty among people she admired.
From Adele – Ruth — Big Theme, Little Book By Adele Berlin – https://www.biblicalarchaeology.org/daily/biblical-topics/hebrew-bible/the-story-of-ruth/
The Book of Ruth, too, is about exile and return, land and people. Like Abraham, and like the family of Jacob (see the story of Joseph), the family of Elimelech was forced by famine to leave its home in the land of Israel and to preserve itself in a foreign land. When the famine abates, Naomi returns to Bethlehem. Far from being a casual move, the importance of returning is emphasized in chapter 1 by the repetition of the root shuv, “return,” twelve times as Naomi bids her daughters-in-law return to their families in Moab and as she returns to Judah with Ruth. Technically Ruth cannot return to Bethlehem, since the Moabite woman has never been there. Her return is really Naomi’s return; Ruth is known in Bethlehem as “the one who returned with Naomi” (Ruth 2:6).
Ruth’s poetic words, “Wherever you go, I will go, wherever you lodge, I will lodge,” are rightly famous, both for their beauty of expression and for their sentiment. “Your people shall be my people, and your God my God” is a radical thought because it signals that Ruth is changing her identity in a world where that was almost inconceivable. The ancient world had no mechanism for religious conversion or change of citizenship; the very notion was unthinkable. Religion and peoplehood defined one’s ethnic identity, and this could no more be changed than the color of one’s skin. A Moabite was always a Moabite, wherever he or she lived. And indeed, Ruth is referred to throughout the story as “the Moabitess.” But from Ruth’s point of view, she is becoming an Israelite. She is joining herself to Naomi not only on the private family level, but also on the national peoplehood level.
Here we see Ruth going with the ‘flow’ and against the ‘flow’ – the inward and outward journies we all travel – the more honest explanation of our existence? Per most prophets and mystics of the world.
(pronounced ruin) – Old English ‘reuwen’ meaning “to rue” (pronounced true) on the model of true/truth, etc. The Old English word was rue:
“sorrow, repentance,” Middle English reue, from Old English hreow “grief, repentance, sorrow, regret, penitence,” from Proto-Germanic *hrewwo “pain; sadness, regret, repentance,” source also of Frisian rou, Middle Dutch rou, Dutch rouw, Old High German (h)riuwa, German reue “sorrow, regret, repentance,” nouns from the root of rue (v.).
From Abarim Publications’ Biblical Dictionary: The Old Testament Hebrew word: רעע –
Most broadly, the root רעע (ra’a’) describes compartmentalization: to break some continuum apart into separated elements. Human minds are designed to be nodes of a much greater network of exchange, and must continuously interact to maintain a liquidity of wisdom — hence the noun רע (rea’), meaning friend or companion (and hence too the story of the Tower of Babel).
All wealth requires liquidity and that requires units of economy to go around. This explains why “evil” — רע, ra’, evil — is not the opposite of “good” but instrumental to it: hence the perfect Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil in the heart of perfect Paradise. Despite popular misconceptions, in the Bible, all רע (rea’) comes from God (Isaiah 45:7) and has a specific and wonderful function in any naturally evolving system.
Verb רעה (ra’a I) means to pasture or feed and the participle רעה (ra’a) means shepherd. Nouns רעי (re’i) and מרעה (mir’eh) mean pasture. Noun מרעית (mar’it) means pasturage.
Verb רעה (ra’a II) means to associate with. Nouns רע (rea’), רעה (re’eh) and מרע (merea’) mean friend, associate or “neighbor”. Nouns רעיה (ra’ya), רעה (re’a) and רעות (re’ut) describe a female attendant, mate or friend.
There may or not be an unused verb רעה (ra’a III) or else the following belong to the previous: noun רע (rea’), aim or purpose; nouns רעות (re’ut) and רעיון (ra’yon), longing or striving.
Verb רוע (rua’) means to produce a sudden burst of sound. Nouns רע (rea’) and תרועה (teru’a) describe a collective rallying cry, a war cry.
Ruthless can be defined as “without ruth” or “having no ruth.” So what, then, is ruth? The noun ruth, which is now considerably less common than ruthless, means “compassion for the misery of another,” “sorrow for one’s own faults,” or “remorse.” And, just as it is possible for one to be without ruth, it is also possible to be full of ruth. The antonym of ruthless is ruthful, meaning “full of ruth” or “tender.” Ruthful can also mean “full of sorrow” or “causing sorrow.” Ruth can be traced back to the Middle English noun ruthe, itself from ruen, meaning “to rue” or “to feel regret, remorse, or sorrow.”
The masculine noun רע (rea’), meaning friend or companion. It expresses an association ranging from intimate friend (Genesis 38:12) to companion (Exodus 2:13) to some other guy (anyone you DO NOT CARE for) (Genesis 11:3). This word occurs 187 times in the Old Testament. It is also this word that is commonly translated as “neighbor” in the well-known command from Leviticus: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself”. (Leviticus 19:18, MATTHEW 19:19). Note that this exact same word is also produced by the next root.
