Remnant of the Refaim
The Grey Alien bodyshape and technology may be one more way Refaim entities extend their existence and influence here.
Megalith structures attributed to the Refaim Kings, at Gilgal Refaim, Golan Hights – Israel.
Deuteronomy 3:1-11 AMP
THEN WE turned and went up the road to Bashan, and Og king of Bashan came out against us, he and all his people, to battle at Edrei.
And the Lord said to me, Do not fear him, for I have given him and all his people and his land into your hand; and you shall do to him as you did to Sihon king of the Amorites, who lived at Heshbon.
So the Lord our God also gave into our hands Og king of Bashan and all his people, and we smote him until not one was left to him.
And we took all his cities at that time; there was not a city which we did not take from them, sixty cities, the whole region of Argob, the kingdom of Og in Bashan.
All these cities were fortified with high and haughty walls, gates, and bars, besides a great many unwalled villages.
And we utterly destroyed them, as we did to Sihon king of Heshbon, utterly destroying every city--men, women, and children.
But all the cattle and the spoil of the cities we took for booty for ourselves.
So we took the land at that time out of the hand of the two kings of the Amorites who were beyond the Jordan, from the Valley of the Arnon to Mount Hermon
(The Sidonians call Hermon, Sirion, and the Amorites call it Senir),
All the cities of the plain, and all Gilead, and all Bashan as far as Salecah and Edrei, cities of the kingdom of Og in Bashan.
For only Og king of Bashan remained of the remnant of the [gigantic] Rephaim. Behold, his bedstead was of iron; is it not in Rabbah of the Ammonites? Nine cubits was its length and four cubits its breadth, using the cubit of a man [the forearm to the end of the middle finger].
DEATH OF OG, LAST OF THE REFAIM KINGS

I’ve no intention to bore YOU to death by endless wanderings through religion and bible stories. Let’s go for the heart, right now. If you find the time to look at text above, it is not a pretty picture. Moses is describing (approx. 13th century BCE) how his tribe, followers of mountain/desert God JAHWEH, finally has begun the great campaign against Canaanite cities. It’s a humongous list of battles, but here King Sihon and his kingdom Heshbon just was defeated, all Heshbon’s cities destroyed, killing all men, women and children. Only cattle was exempt, part of the spoils. Next the Hebrews turned to the kingdom of Bashan, giant King Og’s fief, and they defeated and killed him and his army in battle. The Bible (=Jewish Torah) emphasizes Og got the Sihon treatment, all his sixty high walled cities, plus many villages, were destroyed, as were the men, women, kids.
So who were King Og, and his Refaim forebears. According to Hebrew tradition Og definitely was a strapping lad, the size of his iron bed translates to a man at least 12 feet or 365 cm tall. Refaim are remembered as a bloodline descending from the Nephilim, legendary giants and ordinary looking mighty men living in arkbuilder Noah’s day, more than 11,000 years ago. Nephilim are a mixed breed, supposedly the offspring of human females and so called Sons of God (Angels, ETs, Aliens choose your pick!). Look closer, at these Refaim, impressive, distant descendants of Nephilim.

Proverbs 9:18 YLT
And he hath not known that Rephaim [are] there, In deep places of Sheol her invited ones!
Text is part of Hebrew King Solomon’s wise counsel, here warning that wasting time with foolish women leads straight to hell. (You might want to stop reading right now
.) But in passing he inserts the Refaim name, and also a level of hell, ‘Sheol’ or the 6th level down. There are seven levels of Hell in Hebrew tradition.
Bible suggests that fallen, cast-into-hell Refaim and Nephilim may somehow return to earthly life. Pic shown Fall of Lucifer by Gustave Doré.
1) Dumah, highest level, the silent place.
2) Gehinnom, simply hell.
3) Eretz ha Neshiyah, land of forgetfulness.
4) Eretz haTakhtit, the netherworld.
5) Tzalmavet, valley of the shadow of death.
6) Sheol, firy hell for judgement, punishment, and rising (to higher levels, return to Earth/Paradise)
7) Avadon, meaning forever lost, firy like Sheol but worse, a terrible prison from which no one returns.
Peculiarly, all those of Nephilim blood, like the Refaim tribe, at death are believed to become malevolent spirits, or demons. Sheol, the 6th level, is their resting place, as they gravitate into Hell. There’s a snag: Sheol is a very, very bad place, but ultimately not totally closed off. Its inhabitants are allowed to rise, and in the case of the Refaim, once in spirit form, even roam the Earth to harass (as demons) the human inhabitants of Earth.
1 Samuel 2:6 AMP
The Lord slays and makes alive; He brings down to Sheol and raises up.
Since the Bible opens the possibility that one may go from Sheol, to live again, this even suggests that fallen, hell-cast Refaim and Nephilim may somehow return to earthly life, as walk-ins, possessing spirits, conjured gods of magic, or conceivably newborn infants among us. Speculatively, the Grey Alien bodyshape and technology may be another way they extend their existence and influence here.
The Grey Alien bodyshape.
No way I’m asking readers to adopt a religious Judeo-Christian worldview, let alone a version of Evangelicalism. I do suspect the Bible of being a contact story, full of weird memories of the non-humans we contacted. The Sons of God, fathering the Nephilim and Refaim were one such mysterious faction of non-humans. The Hebrew tribe meticulously recorded dealing with the YAHWEH faction, and obviously these two (or more?) alien groups waged bloody/genocidal wars on our planet, through intermediaries: human tribes they took in their confidence, gave tools to make war and conquer land, eradicate the opposition, and develop into great and influential civilizations.
Where are the Refaim today? I betcha they’re still around somewhere…
Legendary young king-to-be David of the Hebrew nation, approx. 1000 BCE, confronted a Nephilim descendant, the giant Goliath, killing him using a shepherd’s slingshot.
A man of Trachis' warning:
"When the Barbarians discharge their arrows they obscure the light of the sun by the multitude of the arrows"
Dienekes of Sparta's reply:
"Good news, for if the Medes obscure the light of the sun, the battle against them will be in the shade"
