Rephaim Giants

Rephaim; Phoenician: “rpʼm” refers either to a people group of greater-than-average height and stature, or to dead ancestors who are residents of the Netherworld. In the Hebrew Bible, “Rephaites” or “Rephaim” can describe an ancient race of giants in Iron Age Israel, or the places where these individuals were thought to have lived. According to Genesis 14:5, King Chedorlaomer and his allies attacked and defeated the Rephaites at Ashteroth-Karnaim. Rephaites are also mentioned at Genesis 15:20; Deuteronomy 2:10-21, 3:11; Joshua 12:4, 13:12, 15:8, 17:15, 18:16; 2 Samuel 5:18-22, 23:13; and 1 Chronicles 11:15, 14:9 and 20:4. In the biblical narrative, the Israelites were instructed to exterminate the previous inhabitants of the “promised land”, i.e. Canaan, which include various named peoples, including some unusually tall/large individuals. Several passages in the Book of Joshua, and also Deuteronomy 3:11, suggest that Og, the King of Bashan, was one of the last survivors of the Rephaim watch video for more ancient mystery.
