Weren't they the giants spawned by union between the "sons of God" and women? Weren't they wiped out by the Noahic flood?

Not to spam my site, but I recently did a lot of research on the giants of the OT and wrote about them in three parts.

Part 1

Part 2

Part 3

Basically there are four main groups of giants: Nephilim, Anakim, Emim and Rephaim. Part three tells all the references to the giants in the bible. Hope this is useful to anyone.

They are among those who are already bound in chains for eternity.

Job, 2

1 Again there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them to present himself before the LORD.

Job, 38

4 Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding.

5 Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it?

6 Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? or who laid the corner stone thereof;

7 When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?

The sons of God saw Him lay the foundations of the earth, somewhat prior to the creation of man. They are angels, both holy and fallen.

Having said that, some people say that between the KJV and the NIV, four types of angels are named: cherubim, seraphim, anakim, and nephilim. Allegedly, the anakim produced the sons of Anak, of whom were Goliath and his brothers. But I have one eyebrow raised at this point.
