Nephilim in Genesis 6
by Marsella Harrison
(Washington Courthouse, Ohio)
The word giant in Hebrew is Rapha which is not used here in this case. It should be Nephilim. Nephilim can be "fallen one" or "one who causes another to fall".NOTE FROM EDITOR: It should be noted this is absolutely correct. The term "giant" came from the Septuagint, which uses a Greek word translated as "giant". The term "giant" does not appear in the Hebrew. Though the Hebrew does point out the extraordinary nature of the Nephilim by calling them "men of renown" and "men of old".
