Tower Of Babel

Genesis 11:10-Genesis 13:18


Abram was a man from a far away land, and God changed his name one day.
But first God said, I want you to go, to a place you'll be able to stay.

So Abram took Lot, his nephew, and all of his servants and stuff,
and he came to the place, that God gave him to stay, but a famine made living there tough.

Abram left the land that God gave him, and he went down to Egypt instead.
That wasn't the place God told him to stay but Abe thought, they have food and bread.

Now while Abram was down there in Egypt, Pharaoh saw Abram's beautiful wife.
Abram quickly told Sarai to lie about him so Pharaoh would not take his life.

But God didn't need Abram's lie. God already had a good plan.
God loved and protected Abram, while the king ran him out of his land.

So Abram came back into Canaan, the place God told him to stay.
He and Lot had so many cattle, their servants fought night and day.

That wasn't good. They were family. So Abram talked to Lot.
He said look at the land, and pick what you want, and I'll take the other plot.

So Lot lifted his eyes and looked all around, and said Jordan looks lovely and fair.
I'll take all my servants and live next to Sodom. I think it is best over there.

Then God said to Abram after Lot went away, Abram look at all you can see.
Everywhere you can look, every mountain and brook, all this I will give it to thee.

I'll make all your children like dust of the earth, so many you can't even count.
Then Abram was glad and he worshipped the Lord. Made an altar to God on the mount.


Daniel, Shad, Mesh, Abed...

Daniel 2:1-2:49

In Nebuchadnezzar's second year, he dreamed himself a dream.
He called his magicians and sorcerers. Said it's time for you to come clean.

I tell you a dream. You give the meaning. Do I know what you say is true?
Better do your best, cuz I have a test, to see if I can trust you.

I don't remember the dream I've dreamed. If you're real then you surely can.
If you're fakes, I'm going to find out now. Cut to pieces every man.

The astrologers never doubted Nebuchadnezzar knew what he'd dreamed.
For goodness sakes, now he'll know we are fakes. They were dead man walking it seemed.

When they admitted they didn't know, with trembling and bated breath,
The king was furiously angry. He said, put all the wise men to death.

Now remember Daniel and his three friends. They were wise men who served the king.
If every wise man is put to death, how would they escape this thing?

So when Daniel heard of the King's dreadful word, he asked the king for some space.
Then he called his three friends. They had a prayer meeting, and God put a smile on his face.

God revealed the dream and the meaning, to Daniel and his three friends.
Daniel came before Nebuchadnezzar. Said God showed you the time of the ends.

No man, no magician, no astrologer can reveal this thing to you.
But Nebuchadnezzar, there's a God in heaven. He's revealed what he's going to do.

As for you oh king, you saw an image, terrible and shining bright.
His head was of gold, breast and arms of silver, as you slept on your bed that night.

The belly and thighs were of sparkling brass. The legs were of iron strong.
The feet and the toes were of iron and clay. It troubled you all night long.

Then you saw a stone, cut without hands. It smashed the images feet.
The whole image crashed and broke to pieces. Blew away like the threshing floor's wheat.

The stone became a mountain. Filled the earth. Quite amazing scenes.
God revealed your dream. You know he's not fake. He will show you what all of this means.

You Nebuchadnezzar, are a king of kings. You are mighty, strong and bold.
The world is your dominion. You are the head of gold.

After you shall arise a kingdom, inferior to your domain.
The kingdom of silver will replace you, but it will not remain.

Then a third of brass and a fourth of iron. Four kingdoms of which I speak.
But the fourth becomes iron mixed with clay. This diversity will make it weak.

Then the God of all living, the mighty stone, that you saw, cut without hands,
Will destroy human kingdom's with an eternal rule that shall reign in all the lands.

Nebuchadnezzar was shocked. The king fell on his face, and worshipped this servant called Dan.
He said of a truth, your God is real. Your words don't come from a man.

The king made Daniel great. For Daniel was real. Not one who simply pretends.
He reminded the king, of the others who prayed, so the king promoted Dan's friends.
