Did Giants Return After the Flood?

The question I get asked the most is, “How did the giants come back after the flood?” Scripture tells us in Genesis 6:4 that giants were on the Earth both before and after the great flood of Noah, “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, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.”

Goliath and Og were postdiluvian giants. The Israelites warred against the giants for centuries.

The giants before the flood, known as Nephilim, were the offspring of angels and human women, according to Genesis 6. It stands to reason that the giants after the flood were products of the same unholy union, but we must back this up with Scripture. Deuteronomy 32 reads:

7 Remember the days of old, consider the years of many generations: ask thy father, and he will shew thee; thy elders, and they will tell thee. 8 When the Most High divided to the nations their inheritance, when he separated the sons of Adam, he set the bounds of the people according to the number of the children of Israel. 9 For the Lord’s portion is his people; Jacob is the lot of his inheritance.

This portion of Scripture takes place after the Tower of Babel incident. After the council of Elohim confounds the languages, they divide the world into between 70 and 72 nations (the number of the children of Israel in verse 8 is 70). In verse 9, this is the point in Scripture where God chooses Israel as His people. What about the other nations?

In the Greek Septuagint, verse 8 says that God gives the nations to the angels of God. The Dead Sea Scrolls say that God gives the nations to the sons of God, the same wording in Genesis 6. God set 70 angels to rule over the nations after the tower of Babel. The proof of these “gods” ruling the nations can be found in Psalm 82:

1 God standeth in the congregation of the mighty; he judgeth among the gods. 2 How long will ye judge unjustly, and accept the persons of the wicked? Selah. 3 Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy. 4 Deliver the poor and needy: rid them out of the hand of the wicked. 5 They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course. 6 I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High. 7 But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes. 8 Arise, O God, judge the earth: for thou shalt inherit all nations.

Here, Scripture tells us that Elohim is unhappy with how the gods are treating their earthly subjects. Further proof of these earthly angelic rulers can be found in Daniel 10:

13 But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me one and twenty days: but, lo, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me; and I remained there with the kings of Persia. 20 …Then said he, Knowest thou wherefore I come unto thee? and now will I return to fight with the prince of Persia: and when I am gone forth, lo, the prince of Grecia shall come.

Here in Daniel 10, we see that there are evil angels which are the princes of Persia and Greece. After the tower of Babel, God divides the nations to some angels. These angels, I believe, were physical for a time. Today, their bodies are long dead, but their spirits—the powers of the air—still influence their human bloodlines. When those angels were in physical form as kings, they almost assuredly took human women as wives. As in Genesis 6, their offspring were Nephilim, or giants.
