"I destroyed the Amorite before them,
though he was tall as the cedars
and strong as the oaks.
I destroyed his fruit above
and his roots below.
" 32 And they spread among the Israelites a bad report about the land they had explored. They said, "The land we explored devours those living in
it. All the people we saw there are of great size. 33 We saw the Nephilim there (the descendants of Anak come from the Nephilim). We seemed like
grasshoppers in our own eyes, and we looked the same to them."
14. This is what the LORD says:
"The products of Egypt and the merchandise of Cush, [a]
and those tall Sabeans—
they will come over to you
and will be yours;
they will trudge behind you,
coming over to you in chains.
They will bow down before you
and plead with you, saying,
'Surely God is with you, and there is no other;
there is no other god.' "
28 Where can we go? Our brothers have made us lose heart. They say, 'The people are stronger and taller than we are; the cities are large, with walls
up to the sky. We even saw the Anakites there.' "
21 They were a people strong and numerous, and as tall as the Anakites. The LORD destroyed them from before the Ammonites, who drove them out and
settled in their place.
2 The people are strong and tall—Anakites! You know about them and have heard it said: "Who can stand up against the Anakites?"
Deuteronomy 3:11 (new international version)
11 Only Og king of Bashan was left of the remnant of the Rephaites. His bed was made of iron and was more than thirteen feet long and six feet wide.
It is still in Rabbah of the Ammonites.
So this dudes bed is 13ft long and another dude is tall as the trees, their buildings reach to the sky and we look like grasshoppers to them,, even if
its exagerating they must be pretty tall! you can see the size of egypts buildings... why build that big? who needs doors so huge.. imagine all that
housework if your normal size too
