1 (NIV) When men began to
increase in number on the earth and daughters
were born to them, 2 the sons of God saw that the
daughters of men were beautiful, and they married any
of them they chose. 3 Then the LORD said, "My
Spirit will not contend with man forever, for he is mortal; his days will be a hundred and twenty
years."4 The Nephilim were on the earth in those days–and also afterward–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.
