Can someone shed some light on this? My hubby and I are in an ongoing debate over whom the Sons of God are.
Gen 6:1 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,
Gen 6:2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.
Gen 6:3 And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.
Gen 6:4 There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.
Gen 6:5 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.

The Sons of God seems to refer to men who were the descendants of the Godly line of Seth who were followers and worshipers of God as appose to those who were the ungodly descendants of Cain. The daughters of men were the daughters of those who didn't worship God. And when they intermarried, it corrupted the Sons of God and ended the last of righteous humans with the exception of Noah and his family. This is when God destroyed the earth because man had become so corrupt, he could not be redeemed.

It couldn't be referring to demons because demons (and angels for that matter) have no sexual or reproductive capabilities and it said that they intermarried and had children. Also as far as the capitalization, while in the English translations of the Bible, there is capitalization (ie: God vs. god), in the original Hebrew in which the Bible was written, there is no upper or lower case.
