the Amorites who were said to be as “tall as cedars.” Quoting: KnightsTemplar.TV
"Yet destroyed I the Amorite before them, whose height was like the height of the cedars, and he was strong as the oaks; yet I destroyed his fruit from above, and his roots from beneath"
That's seriously tall!
Tell me about bro and Moses tells us the story of the strong cities of Bashan, that had high walls and gates and that Bashan was called the Land of the Giants (or Rephaim, Deut. iii. 13). In the book of Amos 2:9 may refer to Og as “the Amorite” whose height was like the height of the cedars and whose strength was like the oaks. Then Deut. 3:11 and later in the book of Numbers and Joshua, Og is pronounced as the last of the Rephaim. Rephaim is a Hebrew word for giants. The people of Bashan were said to be a branch of the Amorites, and were very tall and larger than any of the other tribes in the desert and of Egypt at this time. The Prophet Amos describes them as high as cedars, and as strong as oaks .
“Og, King of Bashan remained of the remnant of the giants; behold, his bedstead was a bedstead of iron, is it not in Rabbath of the Ogs Bed Giants in the Bible Part Ichildren of Ammon, nine cubits was the length thereof, and four cubits the breadth thereof, after the cubit of a man.” (Deut . iii. 11.)Today this would equate to 13 feet long.
29) ...and the Hittites, and the Jebusites, and the Amorites, dwell in the mountains...
33) And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.
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"
In Gen. xiv. 5. In Deut. ii. 11, it is used of the Emims and the Anakims; so, ver. 20, where it is said “the Ammonites call them Zamzummims.”-
A a race of giants; “a people great, and many, and tall, as the Anakims” (Deut. 2:20, 21). They were overcome by the Ammonites, “who called them Zamzummims or Emims.”
“The Emims dwelt therein in times past, a people great, and many, and tall, as the Anakim“ (Deuteronomy 2:10-11) -
The Emites was the Moabite name for one of the tribes of Rephaim. They are described in Deuteronomy chapter 2 as having been a powerful people, populous and having a successful kingdom. They were defeated by the Moabites, who occupied their land. The Emim are also mentioned in Genesis 14:5 and according to Rashi, the name is translated as “the dreaded ones” (Hertz 1936) and the singular Ema/Emma means “horror” or “terror”.
The Moabites were descendants of Lot through his daughters and according to Genesis 19 they are the same as those of the Ammonites. Ammon is derived from Ham, the son of Noah, who first peopled Egypt and Lybia, after the flood.
The word Amoun, means “shining.” Hence, the Ammonites are where we get the Elohim, comes from Ellu, meaning “the Shining Ones” which is a term used for both the Nephilim and their first born. There is an inscription found at Ostia, which dates 177-180, Hadad of Baalbek, or Jupiter Heliopolitanus, bears the title “Angel” and Baal of Heliopolis was called an “Angel.Now who is Barnabas Uncle? Is he not Jupiter?
Revelation 1:16 – In his right hand he held seven stars, and out of his mouth came a sharp double-edged sword. His face was like the sun shining in all its brilliance.
