In Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction, Samuel L. Jackson as Jules quoted Ezekiel 25:17 just before he pumps multiple bullets into a man he was interrogating. Probably the coolest quote in Pulp Fiction next to, “English, motherf**ker! Do you speak it?!”, and “Say ‘what’ again! Say ‘what’ again! I dare you, I double dare you motherf**ker!” Both of which are in the same scene before he quoted the book of Ezekiel.
“The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he, who in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.”
This bible passage indicates that God’s wrath is retribution for the hostility in the Philistines. It rocketed to pop culture after Tarantino audaciously used it in the movie. It would serve as a pretty badass pronouncement before sucker-punching that dude who grabbed your girl in the club.
