    Deuteronomy 3:11:
    (Og king of Bashan was the last of the Rephaites. His bed was decorated with iron and was more than nine cubits long and four cubits wide. It is still in Rabbah of the Ammonites.)
    Footnote for above citation...
    That is, about 14 feet long and 6 feet wide or about 4 meters long and 1.8 meters wide

    Deuteronomy 9:1-2:
    Hear, Israel: You are now about to cross the Jordan to go in and dispossess nations greater and stronger than you, with large cities that have walls up to the sky. 2 The people are strong and tall—Anakites! You know about them and have heard it said: “Who can stand up against the Anakites?”

    I Samuel 17:4:
    Goliath, who was from Gath, came out of the Philistine camp. His height was six cubits and a span.
    Footnote for the passage citation above:
    That is, about 9 feet 9 inches or about 3 meters

    Then in context my view is they were something in the range of these 3 citations...seemed like grasshoppers then may mean their own dread of them when confronting them in battle. ???

    That's not the question.

    The question is, do you?

    Yet, doesn't the book of enoch say they are?

    In addition doesn't the book of enoch describe Noah when he was born?

    It was written that they began to consume all of the human's food supplies, so how big must one be for that to happen.

    The book of Enoch isn't considered Biblical canon and isn't accurate so I wouldn't translate everything it says literally.

    I haven't read the whole book so couldn't tell you. However Enoch was a Godly man, but who knows how accurate the translations of his book are.

    Did the Godly man, Enoch, write it?

    Uh.... If the Nephilim were over 20 feet tall I maintain that their fathers just could not have had sex with women. And 20 feet is stretching it.

    I believe it was the mutation with human DNA that made them tall but their fathers were regular angel size which I imagine under 9 ft

    Ooooh. From what I understand Enoch did not write it, other people did by listening to his story so it could have been wrongfully translated many times.

    If something is wrongfully translated, it is not inspired by the living God, is it?
