- Apr 5, 2003The hitman Jules (Samuel L. Jackson) frequently quotes "Ezekiel
25:17" in "Pulp Fiction," but in fact he has greatly altered the
Bible passage. The actual passage says:
"And I will execute great vengeance upon them with furious rebukes;
and they shall know that I am the Lord, when I shall lay my
vengeance upon them."
Here's what Jules says, adding bits from the 23rd Psalm and his own
"The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides with the
iniquities 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 those with
great vengeance and with furious anger those who attempt to poison
and destroy my brothers. And you will know that my name is the Lord
when I lay my vengeance upon thee."
....and yeah, I stole this from some webpage somewhere.
