36 Tribes of Giants: In the Bible and Around the World

One only needs to do a cursory study of the Bible to verify the definite existence of giants, throughout the biblical narrative. The earliest appearance of giants occurs just before the flood of Noah’s documentation. Considering the detail added by Enoch in his accounting of the pre-flood giants, we learn that the flood was caused to rid the Earth of these giant hybrids spawned by devious angels, who were driven by cross-species sexual lust. But, for some unknown reason some, if not many, of the giants survived that flood or a genetic mutation was present in the normal-sized survivors.

Christian-centered belief accepts that only Noah and his kin survived the flood, but the ancient record, and anthropological and historical facts, challenge this narrow view. There are hundreds of Noah’s and Noah-like flood legends in the histories and legends of most ancient peoples around the world. And, how did African, Asian, Mesoamerican, and the other great cultures of the world exist, on a much grander scale than the Adamic-related culture of the Bible, both before, and after, the great flood they record? Only more survivors could explain this.

The recognition of Bible related giants is high, even outside of mainstream Christian influence, with the famous and oft-repeated encounter of David and the giant, Goliath. Some are aware of other accounts of giants, the king with a 16-foot bed. Deeply buried in the biblical record, several “tribes” or groups of giants are named. Many of these are mentioned in the verses we present on giants in the Bible, but it would take an exhaustive project to do make an entire presentation on these giant tribes.

We always encourage our readers to do independent research on all subjects found in the entirety of this work. In this case anyone interested in these giant tribes can do an internet search using the words “giant” or “giants” in conjunction with any of names of giant tribes or groups listed below. Many others have done several research projects that are available online.

The word Nephilim does not appear in the Bible, nor any Hebrew pronunciation of any words translated in the Bible. But the word Nĕphiyl, pronounced Nepheel does in the first mention of Giants in Genesis 6:4, and in Numbers 13:33 when describing the Giants of the promised land, Cannan. These giants were apparently the original giants spawned by the Gregori, the giant angels who mated with human females.

Here is an intriguing verse showing this biblicalreality:
► “And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.” (Numbers 13:33)

To put this in perspective we will show how the men making that statement came to this revelation.

God decides that the tribes of Israel should settle in the land called Canaan and orders Moses to send men to explore it:
► “And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Send thou men, that they may search the land of Canaan, which I give unto the children of Israel:” and “And Moses sent them to spy out the land of Canaan…” (Numbers 13:1&17)

♦ The men return and a report that it is a beautiful and abundant land, but with great walled cities and a “strong” people that were the sons of Anak living there:
► “And they returned from searching of the land after forty days….And they told him, and said, We came unto the land whither thou sentest us, and surely it floweth with milk and honey; and this is the fruit of it. Nevertheless the people be strong that dwell in the land, and the cities are walled, and very great: and moreover we saw the children of Anak there. “(Numbers 13:25-28)

♦ There is a call to conquer the land but the men give a warning about the strength of the inhabitants:
► “And Caleb stilled the people before Moses, and said, Let us go up at once, and possess it; for we are well able to overcome it. But the men that went up with him said, We be not able to go up against the people; for they are stronger than we.”(Numbers 13:30-32)

♦ The cause for this great strength of these people is revealed when we find out how big the “children of Anak” really are:
► “And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had searched unto the children of Israel, saying, The land, through which we have gone to search it, is a land that eateth up the inhabitants thereof; and all the people that we saw in it are men of a great stature. And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.”(Numbers 13:32-33)

There can be no doubt that the people living in Canaan were either an organized tribe or group of giants living in great walled cities. This no legend found scrawled on some obscure buried tablet, but absolute biblical proof that the Nation of Israel confronted a giant race in the land of Canaan. Descriptions of encounters with other giants and giant tribes or groups are found in the Bible as well. This being true, is not logical to assume that there may have been other giant clans in other parts of the world gathered together to protect themselves from other humans, or more likely, from other giant tribes?
