A further difficulty seems to be that the offspring were only men; no “women of renown” are mentioned. (Was there a chromosome deficiency among the Sethites? Were there only “Y” chromosomes available in this line?).

Consider carefully what this view proposes. It assumes that God placed a prohibition on intermarriage between the line of Seth and the line of Cain.

However, some of the men in the line of Seth fell in love with and married some women from the line of Cain (though nothing is said of the sons of Cain marrying the daughters of Seth). For some obscure reason, this upsets God so much that He destroys the inhabitants of the earth because of this intermarriage.

In recent times there has been some controversy surrounding the origin of what the Bible calls the Nephilim. The verse in question here is found in Genesis 6: 1-6.

  1. And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,
  2. That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.
  3. And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.
  4. There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God 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. srcset=
  5. And GOD 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.
  6. And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.

There are three common views on the identity of the “sons of God” (“Bene Ha Elohim”) marrying the “daughters of men” in Genesis 6:1-4:

  1. Descendants of Seth married descendants of Cain.
  2. Nobles married commoners.
  3. Angels married human women.
