,,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''

,,And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, who come of the giants. And we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.''

,,Who consumed all the acquisitions of men. And when men could no longer sustain them, the giants turned against them and devoured mankind''
