Now it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born to them, that the sons of God saw the daughters of men, that they were beautiful; and they took wives for themselves of all whom they chose.
For example, Psalm 138:1 says,
I will praise You with my whole heart;
Before the gods I will sing praises to You.
Also, Psalm 82 begins with this:
God stands in the congregation of the mighty;
He judges among the gods.
Yeshua Himself quotes Psalm 82:6 in the gospel of John:
Yeshua answered them, “Is it not written in your law, ‘I said, “You are gods” ’?
There were giants on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown.
Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
Look at verses 8-12.

Here's the thing. The devil's plan has always been to destroy the plan of God. And what did God promise back in Genesis 3? He promised that the Seed of the woman would redeem the world. Satan was corrupting the human lines, to prevent the redeemer from coming. A corrupted line would not bring forth the Messiah.
God was so displeased with the actions of these fallen angels that the New Testament shows us that they get locked up for their activities!
2 Peter 2 shows us what the LORD did with these fallen angels who were messing with His line in the time of Noah:
For if God did not spare the angels who sinned, but cast them down to tartarus and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved for judgment; and did not spare the ancient world, but saved Noah, one of eight people, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood on the world of the ungodly
And the angels who did not keep their proper domain, but left their own abode, He has reserved in everlasting chains under darkness for the judgment of the great day
More giants show up in the Hebrew scriptures after the flood. Further on, we see more nephilim - the Rephaim, Amalekites, Anakites, and of course Goliath. In Numbers 13, the children of Israel were afraid to take the promised land because of the nephilim, or sons of Anak, they discovered there. The devil was still trying to mess up the plan of the Messiah. But I believe that whenever the fallen angels did this, the LORD locked up the culprits in tartarus, where they remain today.
Chapter 6 continues in verse 14 with directions for building the ark. My next post will address that. Click here to read it.
