Bible references to the descendents of Anak - Who are the Anakim

Who were the Anakim?

According to the scripture, the Anakim were a race of giants that was produced by the character, Anak. This race of giants would go on to include Goliath, one of the noted challenges of the young King David.

Are the Anakim related to the Annunaki of Sumerian archaeology?

Here we look closely at the biblical passages pertaining to Anak and the Anakim.

'Josh 11:16–23|16 So Joshua took this entire land: the hill country, all the Negev, the whole region of Goshen, the western foothills, the Arabah and the mountains of Israel with their foothills,'

'Num 13:22|They went up through the Negev and came to Hebron, where Ahiman, Sheshai and Talmai, the descendants of Anak, lived. (Hebron had been built seven years before Zoan in Egypt.)'

'Num 13:28|But the people who live there are powerful, and the cities are fortified and very large. We even saw descendants of Anak there.'

'Num 13:33|We saw the Nephilim there (the descendants of Anak come from the Nephilim). We seemed like grasshoppers in our own eyes, and we looked the same to them.”'

'Josh 15:13|In accordance with the Lord’s command to him, Joshua gave to Caleb son of Jephunneh a portion in Judah—Kiriath Arba, that is, Hebron. (Arba was the forefather of Anak.)'

'Josh 15:14|From Hebron Caleb drove out the three Anakites—Sheshai, Ahiman and Talmai—descendants of Anak.'

'Josh 21:11|They gave them Kiriath Arba (that is, Hebron), with its surrounding pastureland, in the hill country of Judah. (Arba was the forefather of Anak.)'

'Judg 1:20|As Moses had promised, Hebron was given to Caleb, who drove from it the three sons of Anak.'

It is up to you whether to believe this or not, however it is consistnent with the hieroglyphs of ancient Egypt and Mesopatamia that show giant figures and beings that were giant and considered to be gods.
