“Giant” in the KJV of Genesis 6 and Numbers 13:33, two times, derives from the Hebrew “Nephiyl” (Strong’s Concordance h5303) meaning giant, Nephilim. The suffix,“im” is the male plural form many translations use.“…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.” Numbers 13:33 KJV. Standard Christian dogma taught dismisses the existence of Nephilim in Genesis 6, and their connections to Rephaim after the flood and the Exodus. “Rephaim” were first recorded in Genesis 14’s war against giants. Rephaim is the male plural form of the Hebrew “Rapha” (Strong’s h7497) meaning giant, a tribe of giants. Giants illegally squatted in the Covenant Land previous to Abraham settling there, as witnessed by Genesis 14’s war against giants of the greater Covenant Land.
“And in the fourteenth year came Chedorlaomer, and the kings that were with him, and smote the Rephaims in Ashteroth Karnaim, and the Zuzims in Ham, and the Emims in Shaveh Kiriathaim, and the Horites in their mount Seir, unto Elparan, which is by the wilderness. And they returned, and came to Enmishpat, which is Kadesh, and smote all the country of the Amalekites” Genesis 14:5-7 KJV
Rephaim squatted lands east of the Jordan in Ashateroth, Ammon, and Moab; west in Sodom, Gomorrah, Hebron/ Kiriath Arba; and south to Edom and Seir. The Zuzim, Emim, Horim, Amalaqim, Anakim, Zamzummin, and Avvim of Genesis 14 and Deuteronomy 2 were some of the giant tribes of the Middle East. “Giant” in Deuteronomy 2, and all cases but 3 in the Old Testament KJV Bible derives from “Rapha” (Strongs h7497)…….Read More
