Many Christians assert that the Nephilim of Genesis 6 are the same group as the Rephaim who existed after the flood (such as Goliath and Og). Furthermore, they are all depicted as 'giants' in some English translations and commonly believed to be so. But were there really giants on the earth? Can either the Nephilim or the Rephaim be said to be giants?

Hebrew Christian historian, Edersheim: ''Properly speaking, these Nephilim were "men of violence," or tyrants, as Luther renders it, the root of the word meaning, "to fall upon." In short, [Genesis 6] was a period of violence, of might against right, of rapine, lust, and universal unbelief of the promise. With the virtual extinction of the Sethite faith and worship no further hope remained, and that generation required to be wholly swept away in judgment.'
