Then I considered all that my hands had done and the toil I had expended in doing it, and behold, all was vanity and a striving after wind.—“If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink.”—He satisfies the longing soul, and the hungry soul he fills with good things. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.

4 Then they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city and a tower bwith its top in the heavens, and let us make a name for ourselves, lest we be dispersed over the face of the whole earth.”
8 So ethe Lord dispersed them from there over the face of all the earth, and they left off building the city.
10 And Lot lifted up his eyes and saw that the jJordan Valley was well watered everywhere like kthe garden of the Lord, like the land of Egypt, in the direction of lZoar. (This was before the Lord mdestroyed Sodom and Gomorrah.)
