As well as, why did God stop the building of the Tower of Babel?

According to Genesis, the Babylonians wanted to make a name for themselves by building a mighty city and a tower β€œwith its top in the heavens.” God disrupted the work by so confusing the language of the workers that they could no longer understand one another.

At the same time, how big was the base of the Tower of Babel? It states that the tower was made up of seven terraces and it gives the height of the seven stocks - 91 meters all in all. The ground floor measured 91 x 91 meters, and this is confirmed by archaeological excavations conducted by Robert Koldewey after 1913 (91,48 x 91,66 m).

What does Babylon mean in the Bible?
