Ezekiel 25:17

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 is the quote from the movie, Pulp Fiction. The actual scripture is different. :?

"And I will execute great vengence upon them with furious rebukes; and they shall know that I am the Lord, when I lay my vengence upon them."

--Ezekiel 25:17

What are we correcting? I guess it is the writer of Pulp Fiction.

"strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger" and "lay my vengeance upon you" are the only two parts of that diatribe that have any resemblance to the Bible verse he claims to have memorized.
Quoting from someone on the Internet:
"Jules must have been reading one weird Bible, because the verse he quotes isn't like any version in print."

The quote should actually be attributed simply to Pulp Fiction.

Here's something that is not as old as the Bible, but it's pretty old:

For he will bow down the inhabitants of loftiness;
He will lay low the elevated city;
He will lay it low to the ground;
He will bring it to the dust.
The foot shall tread it down;
The feet of the poor,
The steps of the needy.
Straightnesses are the path of the righteous man;
The straight way of the righteous man thou wilt weigh.
~ from Commentary on Isaiah - Volume 2, ch. 26
by John Calvin (1509 - 1564)
