Hawker's Poor Man's Concordance And Dictionary
The Scripture speaks of such characters in the old world, Genesis 6:4. And in the days of the church going though the wilderness, the king of Bashan, which opposed Israel, is described as having a bedstead of iron of nine cubits long, and four wide; so that the length was fifteen feet and four inches. And yet of later times, even in our own days, Mr. O'Brien, the Irish giant so called, was said to have been nine feet high. (See 2 Samuel 21:16-22) The term for giant in Hebrew is very singular; it is Nophel: meaning, a monster.
