Notes on the Nephilim
‘ The Nephilim shall be called evil spirits, when they come to live on earth. Evil spirits shall exude from their flesh... because they were created from a mixture of mankind and the watchers, who fly above’.
Book of Enoch (88 BC-AD 154)
In the Hebrew tradition, Eve’s descendents are the ancestors of the ‘Nephilim’,
a race translated from the verbal adjective ‘naful’ (to fall), i.e. the ‘Fallen Ones’. ‘Naful’ is transferred into Arabic as ‘hava’ (fallen), denoting the ‘serpent’ (af ’a). This spawn is ‘created from the sons of Gods and the daughters of men’. Clarification on the Nephilim’s ancestry is elaborated in the Biblical Book of Genesis 6:1-4, to quote:
‘When men began to increase in number on the earth and daughters were born to them, the sons of God saw that the daughters of men were beautiful, and they married any of them they chose... The Nephilim were on the earth in those days - and also afterwards - when the sons of God went to the daughters of men and had children by them. They were the heroes of old, men of renown’.
Philologically the ‘naful’ denoting the (fallen) specify ‘nafil’ (a giant). In the book of Numbers 13:33, the ‘Nephilim’ Hebrew (Fallen) are called the ‘Child(ren) of Anak’, plural the ‘Anakim’. According to Signet Hebrew- English Dictionary by Dov Ben Abba, the word for ‘giant’ is (anak) and appears in the Modern Hebrew adjective as ‘anaki’ (gigantic). The use of ‘anaki’ is cryptic and proposes a child, whose origins are sourced from the stars.
‘Anaki’ is translated into Greek as ‘Titan’ (a giant) - a race conceived from heaven and earth. The word ‘anaki’ is used in Hebrew as a codeword identified with the Hebrew homonym ‘gibbor’ (giant) and possesses the additional meaning (Orion). Of particular relevance, the appellation ‘Gibbor’ (Giant) connotes the mythical race – the ‘Gibborim’ otherwise the ‘Anunnaki’ (Gigantic), esoteric of the ‘children of heaven’ e.g. Orion.
Classical accounts record the divine offspring of the Gibborim or Anunnaki as the demigod ‘Titan’ a race described cryptically as ‘gigantic’. Like its predecessor the Nephilim the progeny of the Titan originates from the children of Uranus (heaven) and Gaia (earth). Further the Titan is deemed as royal, an idea symmetrical with the offspring of ‘Anak’. The status ‘Anak(i)’ informs the Phoenician word ‘anak’ (a prince), transliterated into Greek as ‘anax’.
