http://www.bibleufo.comTwo Giant Races It is important to notice that within the first mention of giants in the Bible, in Genesis 6:4, this statement is made: "There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that". The "also after that" is clearly represented as meaning "after the Flood" as the giants appear in scriptural narration after that event. They are described as very tall, up to 16 feet, having more fingers and toes than humans and associated with war. One is even described as a king and entire regional areas are recognized as their habitat. The word Nephilim is the plural Hebrew pronunciation of the word from which giants and giant were taken and does not appear in the Bible. The word Nephil comes from nphiyl, pronounced nef-eel’ , a bully or tyrant. Where the word ‘Rephaim’, ‘Rapha’ and, in some places, the word ‘dead’ is used in the verses presented here, they are all taken from the word rapha’, pronounced raw-faw’, meaning, in the sense of invigorating; a giant, lax, (figuratively) a ghost (as dead; in plural only): In the case of the word dead, it is generally accepted that this is referring to the spirits of the dead giants destroyed by the Flood. The Rephaim are believed to be a race of giants separate from the Nephilim of Genesis 6:4. In two verses the translators used the word ‘Rephaim’ where the word for the Nephilim appears and these verses are noted. There is much evidence in history that clearly show giants have been with us far beyond ancient times. Here are the verses in the Bible that describe giants: /thefleet.htm
