The Bible said the children of men and the children of God married. What does this mean?

In Genesis 6 who were the "daughters of men" and who were the "sons of God"?



Thank you for asking a question on

Actually, there is no such passage in the Bible. The closest is in Genesis 6:1-4. What this means is that the people of God did not remain separate from the evil people of the world and entered into marriages with them. That inevitably led to a breakdown of the community of the faithful until, in a very short time, immorality and violence and corruption filled the earth. The only righteous people left were Noah and his family.

The people of God, known in the Bible as "the sons of God"  (see Genesis 4:26 margin; John 1:12; Romans 8:14; Philippians 2:15; 1 John 3:1,2)
