The fall of angels as well as the fall of man is one of the earliest facts of history. Charging His angels with folly may refer to the original fall of the angels with Lucifer in the pre-Adamite world. It could also refer to the folly of fallen angels marrying the daughters of men and producing races of giants on the earth, which was a well-known fact in Job's day. Gen. 6:4 speaks of some angels doing this both before and after the flood of Noah. They committed this horrible sin in an effort to keep the Seed of the woman from coming into the world.
