These were descended from Rapha in Gath, and they fell by the hand of David and by the hand of his servants. Bible see other translations

“Rapha.” Rapha was one of the Nephilim, the “Fallen Ones.” His descendants were referred to as “Rephaim.” The Hebrew text has “the Rapha,” which is unusual and has prompted some translators to say “the Rephaim.”

[For more on the Nephilim and the connection between them and Rapha, see commentary on Genesis 6:4.]
