Rephaites, Rephaim

REPHAITES, REPHAIM (rĕf'ā-īts, rĕf'ā-ĭm, Heb. rephā’îm, mighty). The name of a giant people, called also Rephainer (Gen.14.5; Gen.15.20 kjv), who lived in Canaan even before the time of Abraham. They are listed among Canaanites who were to be dispossessed (Gen.15.20). They were like the Anakim in Deut.2.11, Deut.2.20. Og, king of Bashan, was a descendant of the Rephaites (Josh.12.4; Josh.13.12).
