But one question that confuses us is written in the old testaments (Genesis 6:4). If we read (chapter 6) which is about the flood and everything on earth was destroyed. Because (Genesis 6:7) says “So the Lord said, “I will destroy the people whom I created on the earth. I will destroy each and everything that crawls on the earth. And I will destroy all of the birds in the air because I am sorry for that I have made them.”

Do the Sons of God again come to the daughter of man again?

No, but scholars say may be Noah‘s wife or any daughter in laws of Noah’s can be from the descends of giants and according to the process of DNA. The genes of the parents are passed from the ancestors to their new generations. By this process, there would have been thousands of giants at that time, and Goliath was one of them. We can see in (Numbers 13:33) Bible does prove this. And there so many verses related to this.
