✿ Gen. 6:4 teaches that there were giants on the earth "in those days" (before the flood), "and also after that" (after those days which were before the flood), as a result of the sons of God marrying the daughters of men. All these giant nations came from a union of the sons of God (fallen angels) and daughters of men after the flood. Goliath, whom David slew, was 13 ft. 4 in. Tall, counting 25 in. As a cubit and 10 in. As a span. He wore a coat of armour of nine feet and nine inches tall, weighing 196 pounds(1Sam. 17:4- 6). ✿ By race, Goliath was not a Philistine; rather, he came from one of the races of giants whom Israel fought when leaving Egypt. Goliath and his brothers were of the remnant of giants left in the country to test Israel in the settlement of Canaan. David and his men killed the last of the races of giants (1Sam. 17:49; 2Sam. 21:16- 22; 1Chr. 20:4- 8).
