And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,

And when men began to be multiplied upon the earth, and daughters were born to them,

that the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives, whomsoever they chose.

the sons of God, seeing that the daughters of men were beautiful, took to themselves wives from all whom they chose.

And YHWH said: 'My spirit shall not abide in man for ever, for that he also is flesh; therefore shall his days be a hundred and twenty years.'

Gn6:4  And the Lord God said, My Spirit shall certainly not remain among these men for ever, because they are flesh, but their days shall be an hundred and twenty years.

The Nephilim were in the earth in those days, and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bore children to them; the same were the mighty men that were of old, the men of renown.

Gn6:5  Now the giants were upon the earth in those days; and after that when the sons of God were wont to go in to the daughters of men, they bore children to them, those were the giants of old, the men of renown.

Now giants were upon the earth in those days. For after the sons of God went in to the daughters of men, and they conceived, these became the powerful ones of ancient times, men of renown.
