The German Nibelungen — with the corresponding Old Norse form Niflung (Niflungr) — is the name in Germanic and Norse mythology of the royal family or lineage of the Burgundians who settled in the early 5th century at Worms.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nibelung

The Nephilim (plural) are the offspring of the "sons of God" and the "daughters of men" in Genesis 6:4, or giants who inhabit Canaan in Numbers 13:33. A similar word with different vowel-sounds is used in Ezekiel 32:27 to refer to dead Philistine warriors.
Etymology
"Nephilim" (נְפִילִים) probably derives from the Hebrew root npl (נָפַל), "to fall" which also includes "to cause to fall" and "to kill, to ruin". The Brown-Driver-Briggs Lexicon gives the meaning as "giants" Robert Baker Girdlestone argued the word comes from the Hiphil causative stem. Adam Clarke took it as passive, "fallen", "apostates". Ronald Hendel states that it is a passive form "ones who have fallen", equivalent grammatically to paqid "one who is appointed" (i.e. overseer), asir, "one who is bound", (i.e. prisoner) etc.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nephilim

"probably"?
I don't think so!

Remember that the Greek priests who deified Minerva, and created a mythology around her, told the people that God had sent her on a cloud?

Ever heard of "Indo-European"??

There are words in most European languages that are very old.

We - Dutch, Belgiums, Brittish, Irish, Germans, French, Slavs, Italians, Greeks, Iranians, Indians, and so on split off from a 'mother' branch. And the origin of IE was somewhere between or north of the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea.

I got it, and it's bull.

You will have to prove first that Frisians/Nordics spoke like you think they spoke, thousands of years ago.

The OLB is not anything near proof.

Why, I showed that N*V*L / N*F*L / N*B*L words mean fog, mist, cloud in many (including very old) languages, and it makes more sense than the Hebrew "fallen", which is doubted to be the true meaning anyway. The consequences of this other meaning, if I'm right, are HUGE. It is worth thinking about it longer, than just a few nightly hours.

I don't even need the OLB as proof.
It just inspired me to this revolutionary thought.

You feel insulted or something?
I didn't have the impression that you were a bible-worshipper, but it will probably be deeply rooted in your subconscious LOL.

I respect that your mind doesn't work the same way as mine.
But I hope you can imagine, that not everything that you don't immediately understand, has to be nonsense.

And even if you were, you should be curious of its true meaning, not just of the existing man-made interpretations.

Is it the pride of your Juweish roots that makes you want to believe that bible mythology is older?

Of course I'm not suggesting that the 'Nephilim' from the bible are the Niflungen from the Edda, or the Nibelungen from the 'Nibelungenlied'.

Only that it has the same meaning;
Dutch: "nevelingen"; people from the mist, fog, cloud(s)

Rather than "fallen ones", which is not more than a hypothesis, but loads of people base their belief that they were aliens on it ('those who fell from heaven').

And that it makes more sense that they were just tall people from the North (just like the 'giants' and 'gods' of Roman and Greek mythology), than that they were supernatural giants, aliens or sons of god.

Heh, why should I be insulted?

And I don't think the European "NFL/NBL" has anything to do with those 'Nephilim'.

And then again, what has the Bible to do with what I said??

You come to conclusions about me like you come to conclusions about language...

But if there is any connection to Semitic in European languages, it most probably originated with the Phoenicians.

You haven't read what I said a long time ago, I assume.

My roots are: Dutch, German, Basque, Russian-Jewish. Half of Europe added to my genes, lol. Add to that a haeavy load of Frisian, and you should know you are barking up the wrong tree.

Personally I vote for the Bsques as having one of the oldest traditions and language, but not like Puzz is doing in her thread about Trojans/Basques.

I know that I sometimes need some time to make my point, that what I try to say is not always immediately clear to others.

It's not nice when you immediately say that it is "bull", when you don't agree, or don't understand yet.

I interpret that as you being anoyed or otherwise negative.

But I admit there was some teasing (back) in my reply.

Seriously, I don't think the idea that nephil might be related to the word for fog/mist/cloud is nonsense.

If you think it is, please explain why.

'Nephilim' is a Hebrew/Semitic word and is not an Indo-Euopean word. Whoever tries to prove that the European NBL/NVL words originate in some Semitic language forgets Semitic is non-IE.

http://www.etymologi...trefwoord/nevel

I believe that through the Phoenicians many Semitic words slipped into European languages, but not that it (or another Semitic language) forms the basis of European languages.

=

Maybe you have been thinking about the etymologies I posted about 'Nehalennia' of which one was based on Phoenician (nahal + aniah, together forming something like 'to guide boats'). But that was just one etymology: others are based on Celtic, German, and once I even fabricated an 'etymology' based on Finnish ("Maalähelläjään" or "Land near ice", which would once have been an appropriate name for Doggerland).

Do you know the context in which the word is used in the bible?

Read it here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nephilim

But I'll bet there are others here who 'know' a lot about those Nephilim (think Sitchin and Von Dniken).

Of course I read that, I even read the bible fragments in various translations, but I asked if YOU knew.

I didn't get the impression.

It's very well possible the word they used didn't originate from their own language.
