Seth, the Bible records, was made in the image of Adam, who was made in the image of God Genesis Genesis And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.
By marrying these women, the sons of righteous Seth turned from God, leading Him to say that the entire world was then corrupt Genesis Genesis 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. Their marriages were in defiance of the Creator God, as they lived contrary to His will.
Skip to main content. Who were the "sons of God" who married "the daughters of men" and had children who were giants in Genesis 6: ? Now what would be the argument for this position?
The angels in the Old Testament are sometimes called sons of God. For example: Job 1 and 2, Psalm and psalm You look at Thomistic angelology or any angelology of the fathers, each angel is its own species. So the idea that they even have the power to generate is actually metaphysically impossible, theologically erroneous.
Who Were the Sons of God in Genesis 6?
Want to know why the angels fell? They fell because ladies, you are just too beautiful. He says that women should worship with their heads covered because of the angels. And Tertullian, in AD, argued that what Paul meant there was that women are just too beautiful and that they need to cover themselves so that the angels can pay attention in the mass basically. So cover up, you ladies are just too beautiful. Probably not right, although it was a good try.
וַיִּרְאוּ בְנֵי-הָאֱלֹהִים אֶת-בְּנוֹת הָאָדָם, כִּי טֹבֹת הֵנָּה; וַיִּקְחוּ לָהֶם נָשִׁים
In this view the sons of God are ancient kings, ancient dynastic rulers, and the daughters of men were these royal harems that they would take from among their subjects. And in this case the sin in question is sexual lust and polygamy.
In other words, these kings, who, remember in the ancient world, kings were regarded as divine or at least semi-divine, these kings would take to wife the women of their subjects and create these harems. And so out of lust and polygamy they sin and so God sends the flood to destroy them. Not impossible, hard to demonstrate, a bit of a modern interpretation.
I take it with a grain of salt. I actually think it can be confused with option 1. Although it does make me realize something else.

Another major weakness to the angelic interpretation is that it would necessitate the angels inserting themselves into the narrative in chapter and then pulling out in chapter In other words, coming from nowhere and going nowhere, because who is punished in Genesis ? So if the sin were the sin of the angels, you would expect to see the punishment to be the punishment of the angels.
People who are punished is humanity, the human beings, right? Ok, option 1, which I think is the right interpretation, is what is known as the Sethite interpretation. In this view, the sons of God are descendants of Seth.
The Sons of God in Genesis
And the sin in question here is the intermarriage between the godly Sethites and the ungodly Cainites. The sons of God in this case are attracted by the women of the Cainite civilization and they intermarry with them and thereby fall into the sin and the idolatry of the Cainite culture.
He deals with this in depth, the whole question of the sons of God and the daughters of men in book 15 of Augustine work, The City of God. He argues for this interpretation. Aquinas takes it also as well in the Summa Theologica in the section on whether angels have bodies and whether they can do things with those bodies that humans do. Aquinas deals with this in the Summa, part 1, question 51, article 3.
He says this:.
