|Commentary on the
Book of Enoch, Chapter 7:1-6.
The Demoralization of Mankind
7:1 And all the others together with them took unto themselves wives, and each chose for
himself one, and they began to go in unto them and to defile themselves with them, and
they taught them charms and enchantments, and the cutting of roots, and made them
acquainted with plants.
7:2 And they became pregnant, and they bare great giants, whose height was three thousand
7:3 Who consumed all the acquisitions of men,
And when men could no longer sustain them,
7:4 The giants turned against them and devoured mankind.
7:5 And they began to sin against birds, and beasts, and reptiles, and fish, and to devour
one another’s flesh, and drink the blood.
7:6 The the earth laid accusation against the lawless ones.
7:2 At present, no commentator I’ve read has offered any dimension for three thousand ells.
7:2-5 Genesis 6:4-5 states “There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of Elohim came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown. And Elohim saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.” But it fails to present the horrible cruelty and violence which these giants brought.
In the light of events described here, is it any wonder ten of the twelve spies sent into Canaan, where descendents of these giants lived, came back to Israel’s camp with faithless reports?
