There is one line of thinking that suggests they were descendants of the fallen angels.


They are mentioned both before the flood and after. Raphah of Gath was said to be the father of several giants of whom Golliath was one. A 12 fingered and 12 toed giant is also mentioned as one of the sons.

The giants in Palestine were also know as Ankims, Emins and Zamzummins.

Robert ; Genesis 6 : 4 : 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. ; Numbers 13 : 33 : And there we saw the giants ... And we were in our own sight as grasshopper, and so we were in their sight. ; Deuteronomy 2 : 10-11 : The Emims dwelt therein in times past, a people great, and many, and tall, as the Anakims; Which also were accounted giants. ; Deuteronomy 2 : 20-21 : That also was accounted a land of giants: giants dwelt therein in old time.... A people great, and many, and tall, as the Anakims; but the LORD destroyed them. ; Deuteronomy 3 : 11 : For only Og king of Bashan remained of the remnant of giants; behold his bedstead was ... nine cubits was the length thereof, and four cubits the breadth of it. ; Joshua 12 : 4 : And the coast of Og king of Bashan, which was of the remnant of the giants. ; Joshua 18 : 16 : The valley of the son of Hinnom, and which is in the valley of the giants. ; 1 Samuel 17 : 4 : Goliath, of Gath, whose height was six cubits and a span. :

A:When the spies returned and issued their report to Moses, they said that the land was 'flowing with milk and honey', but that the inhabitants were giants and and their cities fortified (Numbers 13:27-29), yet once the invasion began, no giants were to be found. The Bible describes the Israelites as easily conquering Jericho and makes no report of them meeting any giants. In fact, the Bible says they overran 31 cities without ever seeing the supposed giants. The Exodus story needed an explanation for the reluctance to enter the Promised Land, but the quite separate tradition of Joshua's conquest of Jericho and the Promised Land had no need of giants.
