Reading Isaiah’s Mind – Chapter Six – verses 6- 12

Seraphim – a species of venomous serpents; “winged-serpents”; poisonous serpents, derived from the Hebrew saraph-saw-rawf– meaning: burning or poisoning.

6. Then, one originating-from (associated with; belonging to; from among) the Seraphim (Nephilim *; fallen-ones; poisonous-ones)  flew (rushed; to heaped-attentions- on; courted-intensively; moved-with-urgent haste-toward) me.

* Nephilim – The Nephilim, the product of the sons of god mingling with the daughters of Adam, the great Biblical giants, “the fallen ones,” the Rephaim, “the dead ones”—these descriptions are all applied to one group of characters found within the Hebrew Bible.Genesis 6:1–4 tells the readers that the Nephilim, which means “fallen Ones” when translated into English, were the product of copulation between the divine beings (lit. sons of god) and human women (lit. daughters of Adam). The Nephilim are known as great warriors and Biblical giants (see Ezekiel 32:27 and Numbers 13:33). In the third chapter of Genesis, God told Eve that her offspring would be locked in conflict with the serpent’s offspring (Gen 3:15). The serpent was actually a divine being, not a mere member of the animal kingdom. The divine being in the garden who rebelled against Yahweh’s desire to have humans rule an Edenic world is never cast in human form. Unlike the sons of God in Genesis 6:1–4 who are cast as assuming human flesh and capable of cohabitation, the divine rebel of Eden does not appear to Eve that way. Consequently, the idea of a “seed” or offspring extending from the nachash (serpent) would not have been literal for the biblical writer. Instead, the notion is metaphorical or spiritual. And this is precisely what we see when the phrase occurs elsewhere in the Bible. The metaphor is perhaps most clear in the New Testament, when Jesus himself referred to the Pharisees as serpents (Matt. 23:33) who were “of [their] father the devil” (John 8:44; cf. Rev. 12:6). Despite the metaphorical nature of the language in the Eden story, the idea of divine beings producing human spawn who would oppose Yahweh’s desires does appear in Genesis 6:1–4. “When man began to multiply on the face of the land and daughters were born to them, the sons of God saw that the daughters of man were attractive. And they took as their wives any they chose. Then the Lord said, “My Spirit shall not abide in man forever, for he is flesh: his days shall be 120 years.” The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of man and they bore children to them. These were the mighty men who were of old, the men of renown.” (Genesis 6:1–4ESV)
