Babel

Babel is the Hebrew name for Babylon, one of the cities founded by Nimrod.  In Gen. 11:1-9, it is the location where the entire world spoke a single language and worked together to build a tower into the heavens. It was representative of the great pride of man.  God confused their languages.  The building of the tower ceased, and they dispersed.
