1 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply upon the earth and had begot them daughters, 2 the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair, and took unto them wives, which they best liked among them all. 3 And the LORD said, "My spirit shall not always strive with man, for they are flesh. Nevertheless I will give them yet space, a hundred and twenty years." 4 There were tyrants in the world in those days. For after that the children of God had gone in unto the daughters of men and had begotten them children, the same children were the mightiest of the world and men of renown.

1 Samuel 17:1-58

1 The Philistines gathered their host to battle, and came together to Socoh in Judah, and pitched between Socoh and Azekah, in the end of Dammim. 2 And Saul and the men of Israel came and pitched in Oakdale and put themselves in array, to fight against the Philistines. 3 And the Philistines stood on a hill on the one side, and Israel stood on a hill on the other side; and a valley between them. 4 And then came a man and stood in the midst, out of the tents of the Philistines, named Goliath of Gath: six cubits and a handbreadth long, 5 and had a helmet of brass upon his head, and a coat of mail about him. And the weight of his coat of mail was five thousand sicles of brass. 6 And he had a harness of brass upon his legs, and a shield of brass upon his shoulders. 7 And the shaft of his spear was like a weaver's beam. And his spearhead weighed six hundred sicles of iron. And one bearing a shield went before him. 8 And he stood and called unto the host of Israel, and said unto them, "What needeth that ye should come out in array to battle? Am not I a Philistine, and you servants to Saul? Choose you a man, and let him come down to me: 9 if he be able to fight with me and to beat me, then we will be your servants. But if I can overcome him and beat him, then ye shall be our servants and serve us." 10 And the Philistine said, "I have defied the host of Israel this day; give me a man and let us fight together." 11 When Saul and all Israel heard those words of the Philistine, they were discouraged and greatly afraid. 12 And this David was the son of an Ephrathite of Bethlehem Judah, named Jesse; which Jesse had eight sons, and was an old man in the days of Saul among the people. 13 And the three eldest sons of Jesse went and followed Saul to battle. And the names of his three sons that went to battle were: Eliab the eldest, and the next to him Abinadab, and the third Shammah. 14 And David was the youngest. And when the three eldest were gone after Saul, 15 David went and departed from Saul, to feed his father's sheep at Bethlehem. 16 And the Philistine came forth every morning and evening, and continued forty days. 17 And Jesse said unto David his son, "Take for thy brethren this ephah of parched corn, and these ten loaves, and run to the host, to thy brethren. 18 And carry these ten fresh cheeses unto the captain, and look how thy brethren fare, and set out their pledges." 19 And Saul, and they, and all the men of Israel, were in Oakdale fighting with the Philistines. 20 And David rose up early in the morning and left the sheep with a keeper, and took and went, as Jesse had commanded him, and came where the host lay. And the host was going out in array, and shouted in the battle: 21 for Israel and the Philistines had put themselves in array, the one against the other. 22 Then David put the pannier from him, unto the hands of the keeper of the vessels, and ran into the host and came and saluted his brethren. 23 And as he talked with them, behold, there stood a man in the midst: Goliath the Philistine by name, of Gath, which came out of the array of the Philistines, and spake of the manner above rehearsed, that David heard it. 24 And all the men of Israel, when they saw the man, ran away from him, and were sore afraid. 25 And every man of Israel said, "See ye this man that is come forth; even to revile Israel is he come. And to him that beateth him will the king give great riches, and will give him his daughter thereto: yea and make his father's house free in Israel." 26 Then spake David to the men that stood by and said, "What shall be done to the man that beateth this Philistine and taketh away the shame from Israel? For what is this uncircumcised Philistine, that he should revile the host of the living God?" 27 And the people answered as it is rehearsed, saying, "So shall it be done to the man that beateth him." 28 And Eliab his eldest brother heard when he spake unto the man and was angry with David and said, "Why camest thou away, and with whom hast thou left those few sheep in the wilderness? I know thy pride and the malice of thine heart, that thou art come to see the battle." 29 And David answered, "What have I now done? Is there any more, save a word?" 30 And departed from by him into another front, and spake of the same manner, and the people answered him again, as before. 31 And they that heard the words which David spake, rehearsed them before Saul, which caused him to be fetched. 32 And David said to Saul, "Let no man's heart fail him because of him. Thy servant will go and fight with his Philistine." 33 And Saul said to David again, "Thou art not able to go unto this Philistine, to fight with him. For thou art but a lad, and he hath been a man of war even from his youth." 34 Then said David unto Saul, "As thy servant kept his father's sheep, there came a Lion and likewise a Bear, and took a sheep out of the flock. 35 And I went out after him and smote him, and took it out of his mouth. And when he arose against me, I caught him by the beard and smote him and slew him. 36 For both a Lion and also a Bear hath thy servant slain. And this uncircumcised Philistine shall be as one of them, for his railing on the host of the living God." 37 And David spake moreover, "The LORD that delivered me out of the hands of the Lion and out of the hands of the Bear, he shall deliver me also out of the hands of the Philistine." Then said Saul to David, "Go, and the LORD be with thee." 38 And Saul put his raiment upon David, and put a helmet of brass upon his head, and put a coat of mail upon him, 39 and gird David with his own sword upon his raiment. And he assayed to go, for he never proved it. Then said David unto Saul, "I cannot go in these, for I have not been used thereto." And put them off him, 40 and took his staff in his hand, and chose him five smooth stones out of a brook and put them in a shepherd's bag which he had, and in a poke; and took a sling in his hand, and went to the Philistine. 41 And the Philistine came and drew near to David, with the man that bare a shield before him. 42 And when the Philistine looked and saw David, he disdained him; for he was but a lad, ruddy and goodly to look upon. 43 And the Philistine said unto David, "Am I a dog, that thou comest to me with a staff?" And he cursed David in the name of his gods. 44 And he said to David, "Come to me and I will give thy flesh unto the fowls of the air, and to the beasts of the field." 45 Then said David to the Philistine, "Thou comest to me with a sword, a spear, and a shield: But I come to thee in the name of the LORD of Hosts, the God of the host of Israel whom thou hast railed upon. 46 This day shall the LORD deliver thee into my hand, and I shall smite thee and take thine head from thee, and will give the carcasses of the host of the Philistines this day unto the fowls of the air and to the beasts of the earth — and all the world shall know that there is a God in Israel. 47 And all this congregation shall know that the LORD saveth not with the sword and spear. For the battle is the LORD's, and he shall give you into our hands." 48 And when the Philistine arose and came and drew nigh unto David, David hasted and ran in array even against the Philistine. 49 And David put his hand in his poke and took out a stone and slung it, and smote the Philistine in his forehead that the stone sunk into his forehead, and he fell groveling to the earth. 50 And so David overcame the Philistine with a sling and a stone, and smote the Philistine and slew him. And because David had no sword in his hand, 51 he ran and stood upon the Philistine, and took his sword and drew it out of his sheath and slew him and cut off his head therewith. And when the Philistines saw that their champion was dead, they fled. 52 And the men of Israel and of Judah arose and shouted and followed after the Philistines, until they came to the valley and unto the gates of Ekron. And the Philistines fell down dead by the way, even unto Gath and Ekron. 53 And then the children of Israel returned from chasing after the Philistines and robbed their tents. 54 And David took the head of the Philistine and brought it to Jerusalem: But he put his armour in his tent. 55 When Saul saw David go forth against the Philistine, he said unto Abner the captain of his host, "Abner, whose son is this lad?" And Abner answered, "As truly as thy soul liveth, O king, I cannot tell." 56 Then said the king, "Enquire thou, whose son the youngling is." 57 And so when David was returned from the slaughter of the Philistine, Abner took him and brought him before Saul, with the head of the Philistine in his hand. 58 And Saul said to him, "Whose son art thou, thou lad?" And David answered, "The son of thy servant Jesse the Bethlehemite."

33 And there we saw also giants, the children of Anak which are of the giants. And we seemed in our sight as it were grasshoppers and so we did in their sight."

Genesis 6:1-22

1 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply upon the earth and had begot them daughters, 2 the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair, and took unto them wives, which they best liked among them all. 3 And the LORD said, "My spirit shall not always strive with man, for they are flesh. Nevertheless I will give them yet space, a hundred and twenty years." 4 There were tyrants in the world in those days. For after that the children of God had gone in unto the daughters of men and had begotten them children, the same children were the mightiest of the world and men of renown. 5 And when the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was increased upon the earth, and that all the imagination and thoughts of his heart was only evil continually, 6 he repented that he had made man upon the earth and sorrowed in his heart. 7 And said, "I will destroy mankind which I have made, from off the face of the earth: both man, beast, worm and fowl of the air, for it repenteth me that I have made them." 8 But yet Noah found grace in the sight of the LORD. 9 These are the generations of Noah. Noah was a righteous man and uncorrupt in his time, and walked with God. 10 And Noah begat three sons: Shem, Ham and Japheth. 11 And the earth was corrupt in the sight of God, and was full of mischief. 12 And God looked upon the earth, and lo it was corrupt: for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth. 13 Then said God to Noah, "The end of all flesh is come before me, for the earth is full of their mischief. And lo, I will destroy them with the earth. 14 Make thee an ark of pine tree, and make chambers in the ark, and pitch it, within and without, with pitch. 15 And of this fashion shalt thou make it: The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, and the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits. 16 A window shalt thou make above in the ark. And within a cubit compass shalt thou finish it. And the door of the ark shalt thou set in the side of it: and thou shalt make it with three lofts — one above another. 17 For behold, I will bring in a flood of water upon the earth to destroy all flesh from under heaven, wherein breath of life is, so that all that is in the earth shall perish. 18 But I will make mine covenant with thee, that both thou shalt come into the ark and thy sons, thy wife and thy sons' wives with thee. 19 "And of all that liveth, whatsoever flesh it be, shalt thou bring into the ark, of every thing a pair, to keep them alive with thee. 20 And male and female see that they be, of birds in their kind, and of beasts in their kind, and of all manner of worms of the earth in their kind: a pair of every thing shall come unto thee to keep them alive. 21 And take unto thee of all manner of meat that may be eaten and lay it up in store by thee, that it may be meat both for thee and for them." 22 And Noah did according to all that God commanded him.

Genesis 6:4

4 There were tyrants in the world in those days. For after that the children of God had gone in unto the daughters of men and had begotten them children, the same children were the mightiest of the world and men of renown.
