As it turns out, Immanuel, God gave them speaking tongues so they could one day run Aish Discovery seminars. To everything there is a season.

Immanuel Frances (1618? – 1710?)
If All That Comes Between

If all that comes between a beast
And man is the power to speak —
What made God give a speaking tongue
To stupid boors whose minds are weak?

עמנואל פראנשיס
אם ההבדל

אִם הַהֶבְדֵּל בֵּין בַּעַל חָי
אֶל הָאָדָם הוּא הַדִּבּוּר —
לָמָּה הָאֵל נָתַן לָשׁוֹן
דּוֹבֶרֶת לַטִּפֵּשׁ וָבוּר?


‘Im ha-hevdéil bein báʕal ḥai
‘el ha-‘adám hu ha-dibúr —
Lámah ha-‘éil natán lashón
dovéret la-tipéish va-vúr?
