In another "discussion" this verse was brought to my attention as defining the "sons of God" to be angels. I can see when the term is defined as "messengers", it justifies the application to be angels. Also I have read in further study, Thank You Daniel David for inciting me to do so,that these "sons of God" are "Boanerges", the title given to James and John/ the Sons of Thunder, not saying these "sons of God" were James and John of the New Testament. I apologize to Daniel David and Helen both for my jesting, but please when I do, don't take it so seriously. Also I've noticed how those who hold to these being angels to indicate that the same were angels in Gen 6:2, that the idea is the time frame of this action in Job 38:7 is during or prior to Creation, but what I have found is the Creation is already consumated, if that is the correct word. Also, not to drag a dead horse, II Peter 2:4-9, if we look at this from the grammatical view, these are chronological in order, each separated by the semi-colon to thus indicate, each instance having been ended BEFORE the following passage. IOW, the angels "cast down" were in chains of darkness and not allowed to roam the earth in physical form before ,during, or after the Flood, but that does not go to say their spiritual influences upon men are denied. Now I am not "super-spiritual" nor am I a "know-it-all", but I felt like this would bring up a "rational" discussion, and I promise to leave jesting aside, O.K.?
