e now jump forward to 436 years after the Flood to find mention of these giants. Abraham enters the picture here. With his wife, Sarah, he returns from his sojourn in Egypt, and we are told that, by that time, several different tribes of these people are dwelling in the land of the Canaanites and have assumed differing names after their various forebears (see
Figure 4
). We read in Genesis 14:5:
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 Kiriatheim.

of the wilderness of Moab.
The Emims dwelt there in times past.
A people great and many and tall as the Anakims.
Which also were accounted giants as the Anakims: but the
Moabites call them Emmins.

At the time Abraham journeyed through the Promised Land, and even in the much later period of Moses, several tribes of “giants”, who were descended from the Nephilim, populated this entire area. The map above gives the principal tribes and their locations.
was one of the “
sons of Heth
” who, seven years before the building of Zoan in Egypt (Genesis 23:2,3), built Hebron, which was hence called
Kirjath Arba
, meaning the city of Arba.
Anak, his son, had three distinguished descendants in the days of Moses and Joshua who were giants. Their names were Ahiman, Sheshai and Talmai, and they dwelt in Hebron circa 1490 BC.
At this point I would like to examine the story regarding Moses and Joshua. After the Exodus from Egypt, led by Moses, the children of Israel wandered in the wilderness for 40 years. Finally, they were ready to enter and possess the Promised Land which had been given to Abraham. Before invading, Moses sent 12 spies to check out the land and the people. We pick up the record in the Book of Numbers:
And Moses sent them to spy out the land of Canaan and said unto them:
“Get you up this way southward, and go up into the mountain. And see the land what it is, and the people that dwell therein, whether they be strong or weak, few or many.
And what the land is, whether it be good or bad; and what cities that they dwell in; whether in tents or strongholds. And be ye of good courage and bring of the fruit of the land.”
Now the time was the time of the first ripe grapes.
So they went up and searched the land from the wilderness of Zin unto Rehob as men come to Hamath.
And they ascended from the south and came unto Hebron, where Ahiman, Sheshai and Talmai, the children of Anak, were. Now Hebron was built seven years before Zoan in Egypt. And they came unto the brook of Eschol and cut down a branch with one cluster of grapes, and they bare it between two upon a staff; and they brought of the pomegranates and of the figs . . .
And they returned from searching of the land after forty days.
And they came to Moses and to Aaron and to all the congregation of the children of Israel . . . and showed them the fruit of all the land.
And they said: “We came unto the land whither thou sent us, and surely it flows with milk and honey, and this is the fruit of it.
Nevertheless, the people be strong that dwell in the land and the cities are walled and very great; and moreover we saw the children of Anak there.”
And Caleb stilled the people before Moses and said: “Let us go up at once and possess it, for we are well able to overcome it.” But the men that went up with them said: “We be not able to go up against the people, for they are stronger than we.”
And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had searched, saying: “The land which we have gone through to search is a land that eats up the inhabitants thereof, and all the people that we saw in it are men of great stature. And there 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.”
Book of Numbers 13:17-33
Twelve spies were sent out. Ten out of the 12 reported that there was no way they could take this land, as it was filled with these giants, the descendants of Anak, and other huge people. Only two of the 12, Joshua and Caleb, believed that they could defeat this mighty people. But the children of Israel listened to the 10 others and, as a result, wanted to stone Moses and Aaron and Joshua and Caleb and return into bondage in Egypt. But later, under the leadership of Joshua, they did invade and defeat the giants who inhabited the land.
One interesting point from the above passage is the reference to the cluster of grapes they cut down and brought back to illustrate the richness of the land. It took two of the spies to carry just one cluster of grapes on a staff between them. That is one heavy cluster of grapes. Could it be that these giant people, who were the offspring of spirit-men
(sons of God; angels
) and human women, were practising genetic engineering or genetic modification? Because they were the offspring of these spirit-men, they would be superhuman and supernatural. They would possess powers and knowledge beyond mere natural men.
Big people need big food. If two strong, fit Israelite men had to bear just one cluster of grapes between them on a pole, over their shoulders, then it must have been extremely heavy.
Later on we will uncover more evidence which would suggest that these
did indeed practise genetic engineering.
Earlier in this chapter we noted the reference from the Book of Deuteronomy which mentioned various branches of these
known as
Further on in this same record we are informed of other tribes related to these monstrosities:
And when thou comest nigh over against the children of Ammon, distress them not, nor meddle with them, for I will not give thee of the land of the children of Ammon any possession, because I have given it unto the children of Lot for a possession.
That also was accounted a land of giants: giants dwelt therein in old time; and the Ammonites call them Zamzummims.
A people great and many, and tall as the Anakims: but the Lord destroyed them . . . As he destroyed the Horims from before them . . . And the Avims which dwelt at Hazerim.
Deuteronomy 2:18-23
Horims, Zamzummims

“powerful, vigorous;”
and these people were also related to the

Lastly, the Israelites defeated Og, the king of Bashan.
And we took all his cities at that time, three score cities, all the region of Argob, the kingdom of Og in Bashan.
All these cities were fenced with high walls, gates and bars: beside unwalled towns a great many . . .
For only Og, king of Bashan, remained of the remnant of giants; behold his bedstead was a bed of iron; nine cubits was the length thereof, and four cubits the breadth of it, after the cubit of a man.
Book of Deuteronomy 3:4,5,11
So here we are told of the complete destruction of all these various tribes of related giants who had occupied this land for some time. In this last passage we are given further solid proof of the huge size of these people by reference to the measurements of King Og's bed, which is said to have been nine cubits in length and four cubits in width. Again taking the Hebrew cubit at 25.025 inches (63.5cm), we find that his bed was 18¾ feet long and 8
feet wide! This is further proof that these people were indeed giants in the land (see
Figure 5
Joshua and his army defeated Og, king of Bashan, and captured sixty of the “giant cities” of Bashan. Deuteronomy 3:11 gives the size of Og's iron bedstead as nine cubits in length by four cubits in width (i.e. 18.75 feet long by 8.33 feet wide). The above figure compares Og's bed to a standard-size single bed.
