Who Are the Nephilim and the Elouid the Children of Fallen Angels?

Numbers 13:33

Why, we even saw the Nephilim giants (the Anak giants come from the Nephilim). Alongside them we felt like grasshoppers. And they looked down on us as if we were grasshoppers.”  (Num 13:33 Message Bible)


In Numbers 13:33 we see ten spies sent out by Moses to check out the Promised Land deliver their findings. It was a gloomy and daunting report indeed! They noted that the land was occupied by, “The descendants of Anak” who would be, “Too strong for us” (Numbers 13: 28, 31). They ended their report by comparing themselves to the adversary they would have to defeat to occupy the land. “There also we saw the Nephilim the sons of Anak (the Anak giants come from the Nephilim); and we became like grasshoppers in our own sight, and so we were in their sight.”

Nephilim in Battle


Nothing in the Bible or history indicates that Nephilim were sterile, and could not reproduce. Why would we think that they were sterile? Rather they are referred to as, “men” and so they apparently were human enough to reproduce. Without an articulated exception, it must be assumed that, “men” are able to reproduce. The Bible calls Giants the “men of renown” in Genesis. Therefore, as we have explained, if they were men then they could reproduce. Hence, the sons of Anak were Elouid.

The spies compared the inhabitants of Canaan to the Nephilim. Though it looks from the text as if they were saying these inhabitants were physical descendants of the Nephilim, I do not believe that it is possible they were the Nephilim mentioned in the Book of Genesis (see below) for they were destroyed in the flood. The only humans to survive the flood were Noah and his family, and they were not part of the Nephilim, nor did they contain Nephilim genes. Therefore, I believe we need to take this passage as a descriptive comparison. To these spies sent to spy out the land the Canaanites looked as physically strong and powerful as the Nephilim of old. Moreover, the spies felt as small as grasshoppers in comparison. So then, who are the Nephilim of Genesis 6 to whom the spies compared the inhabitants of Canaan? Here is what the biblical text says:

Gen 6:2-4

That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives, whomsoever they chose. And the LORD said: ‘My spirit shall not abide in man for ever, for that he also is flesh; therefore shall his days be a hundred and twenty years.’ The Nephilim were in the earth in those days, and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bore children to them; the same were the mighty men that were of old, the men of renown”. (Gen 6:2-4 Jewish Publication Society)


The text states that the Nephilim are the result of the intermarriage between the “sons of God” and the “daughters of man.” The Nephilim (giants/mighty men) are the product of this angelic/human cohabitation.




This explanation has historic support in the Dead Sea Scrolls and the Book of Enoch. In addition, it helps explain a passage in the Book of Jude that describes a special judgment on a group of fallen angels “who did not keep their own domain, but abandoned their proper abode” (Jude 6). These angels were those confined to a place call “the Abyss” – Tartarus – the lowest part of hell. So what could these angels have done to bring such severe judgment on themselves? Since Jesus said that the angels of heaven “neither marry nor are given in marriage” (Matthew 22:30), this type of cohabitation with humans could indeed fit the special nature of the sin pictured by Jude. One final reference in support of this explanation is that in the Book of Job angels are described as “sons of God” (Job 1:6; 2:1; 38:7).

According to tradition, the Nephilim had enormous psychic abilities. They performed levitation, mind control, and remote viewing. They had the power of pronouncing and removing curses and diseases, and had ways of knowing and predicting the future. They were extremely intelligent. They knew all about science, architecture, and engineering. They combined these skills with their powers of intelligence to build the Pyramids and the other great monuments around the world. They created human sacrifice. According to 1Enoch they drank blood and taught abortion.

The book of Enoch states, “And the fifth was named Kasdeja: this is he who showed the children of men all the wicked smitings of spirits and demons, and the smitings of the embryo in the womb, that it may pass away, and the smitings of the soul the bites of the serpent…” (Enoch 69:12a)

They certainly tampered with both human and animal gene pools (Jasher) to try and hinder redemption through a human bloodline. They were the heroes of old, the mighty men of renown, talked about in mythology, and contributed to the reason God had to destroy the world and all its inhabitants in the Great Flood.
