Bible: Genesis 6:2-5

6:2 the sons of God 1  saw that the daughters of humankind were beautiful. Thus they took wives for themselves from any they chose. 6:3 So the Lord said, “My spirit will not remain in 2  humankind indefinitely, 3  since 4  they 5  are mortal. 6  They 7  will remain for 120 more years.” 8 

6:4 The Nephilim 9  were on the earth in those days (and also after this) 10  when the sons of God were having sexual relations with 11  the daughters of humankind, who gave birth to their children. 12  They were the mighty heroes 13  of old, the famous men. 14 

6:5 But the Lord saw 15  that the wickedness of humankind had become great on the earth. Every inclination 16  of the thoughts 17  of their minds 18  was only evil 19  all the time. 20
