The Original Nephilim were 450 Feet Tall

(1/16) > >>

Volkaitis:

[2] ~ The description in the R. H. Charles version of The Book of Enoch states that the giants were 3000 ells tall.

    "...(3) And they became pregnant, and they bare great giants, whose height was three thousand ells: Who consumed (4) all the acquisitions of men. And when men could no longer sustain them, the giants turned against (5) them and devoured mankind. And they began to sin against birds, and beasts, and reptiles, and (6) fish, and to devour one another's flesh, and drink the blood..."

    The Book of Enoch, Chapter 7: 3-6 ~ R. H. Charles version



An ell is an old English measurement equivalent to 45 inches (Random House Webster's Dictionary). If this was indeed the measurement that Charles was referring to then that would make the giants just short of two miles high [!] This seems inconceivable since any living thing of this size would create a major earthquake everytime it took a step no matter how gingerly it tried to move. Nevertheless, R. H. Charles was considered by some as an 'Enochian specialist.' Hence, this is probably a typo that was never corrected or maybe there were varying measurements referring to an ell (an Ethiopian ell?).

However, Reverend Richard Laurence, a professor of Hebrew at Oxford, produced the very first English translation of the Book of Enoch in 1821 which was translated directly from the three Ethiopic texts by a famous explorer named James Bruce who first uncovered them in 1773.

His version states that the giants were three hundred cubits tall:

    11 And the women conceiving brought forth giants, 12 Whose stature was each three hundred cubits. These devoured all which the labor of men produced; until it became impossible to feed them; 13 When they turned themselves against men, in order to devour them; 14 And began to injure birds, beasts, reptiles, and fishes, to eat their flesh one after another, and to drink their blood.

    The Book of Enoch, Chapter 7: 11-14 ~ Richard Laurence version



A cubit is an ancient Hebrew measurement equivalent of the distance from the elbow to the tip of the fingers which was later standardized to be about 18 inches (or about 45 centimeters. 'McKenzie Dictionary of the Bible' and the 'New Concise Bible Dictionary'). This would make the giants about 450 feet tall. This is corroborated by The Book of Giants in The Dead Sea Scrolls by Wise, Abegg, and Cook, page 246. Putting this into perspective, however, would make the tallest dinosaurs (Ultrasaurus, Sauroposeidon) registering around 60 feet in height with all four legs on the ground appear the size of a chihuahua to the giants of this size. This is more conceivable albeit still mind-boggling to contemplate.

Aside from the above discrepancy, the R. H. Charles version is conceptually identical to the Laurence version. Personally, I prefer the R. H. Charles version since it is not frequently interpolated with explanatory footnotes (as with the Laurence version) which tend to interrupt the flow of understanding that can be derived from just a straight reading of the Book of Enoch. The Laurence version, however, is not without its merits.

[I will take this opportunity here to note that over the years of research I have become very suspicious of 'biblical scholarship' which quite often attempts to reconcile biblical history with a modernist point of view. This kind of biblical understanding amounts to sheer blasphemy since it usually ignores the actual physical act of Divine Creation in six days and subtly assumes modernist trappings such as the big bang theory, theory of evolution, long earth age, and, in general, an exclusively 'tangible' scientific perspective. This, in turn, conditions the masses to regard Biblical history and the miraculous events contained therein as legend instead of fact. The Holy Bible is then explained away as an ancient collection of allegory and metaphorical concepts. Under this spell of the modern world, the idea of a Holy Living Spirit of God disappears altogether. This subtle transformation of the mass mind is covered in much greater detail in Psychic Winds: The Rise of Technosupremacy...] ~

Volitzer:
They were not... the Sumerian texts read that the Nefilim were "Descended from the sky."  meaning they came to Earth in spacecraft.  An archeologist not versed in aerodynamics would interpret this as "giants".

So please stop spreading this mis-translation.  A human body cannot support its own weight over eight feet tall.  Even people who are 7 feet have medical problems.

Remember humans are a result of Nefilim/Ape hybrids.

Then why would they state specifically that they are three thousand ells if it wasn't supposed to be a measurement of some kind?

I'm 189 cm tall, what is an ells ?

Which of the homos are you reffering too as an ape?

This is important. A cycle emerges in everything.
