In the beginning there was only one languages on the face of the earth. But when they began to move east to Babylonia to settle they began to build a tower. God became displeased with the building of the town and tower . Because of them the choices that they were making he confused the languages. So they went from speaking one languages too many. They probably couldn’t figure out what was going on when God did this. I wonder if when they figured it out if they prayed to God to change their situation. But let’s take a look at this from a different angle . We know that God confused the languages for a specific reason. When we get to heaven will he unconfuse the languages and we go back to one language.
