AND IT CAME TO PASS, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.
There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown. (Genesis 6:1-4)
AND THE ANGELS which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day. Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. (Jude v. 6-7)
Nevertheless the people be strong that dwell in the land, and the cities are walled, and very great: and moreover we saw the children of Anak there."
"And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight. (Num. 13:28, 33)
For only Og king of Bashan remained of the remnant of giants; behold, his bedstead was a bedstead of iron; is it not in Rabbath of the children of Ammon? nine cubits was the length thereof, and four cubits the breadth of it, after the cubit of a man. (Deut. 3:11)
( They're different interpetations on how long a cubit is... the most accepted measurement is roughly a 18'' inches . to give you an idea of how big Og was , Goalith was six cubits and a span - roughly 9'7 )
I've had an interest in these giants for awhile... I was wondering is Islam has anything to say about them ... also if anyone has any info on them i'd like to hear it ....

sorry, to highjack the thread. Maybe a little off topic. But I hear that Biblically unicorns are mentioned. Because at the time they didn't have a name for Rhinos for whatever that is worth.
