Gen 6:4
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.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This looks like the giants were already there as this was happening rather than as the result of it. What do you think?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The passage starts out by makeing the statement "There were giants in the earth in those days;(semi colon) and also after that, (coma) 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.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The semi colon is used to break into the sentence to give further meaning to this but not pertaining to the context of the passage.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
After this info is given we see the coma which means the passage is about to begin where it left off.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Take that bit of info after the semi colon and take it out for the time being and read it again.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
There were giants in the earth in those days, 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.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The and also after that is makeing mention of the fact that these beings also lived later, after the flood. They didn't just exist before the flood but after as well.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
coma's are used for minor breaks in the subject not major ones.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
See the sentence is made to give identity to the giants. It wasn't written to say; there were giants in those days and by the way so were these other guys too.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Actually most people don't realize it but this is how all english is to be read even today...... What we actually have is a semi colo then a coma, the coma brings us back to the original thought.
