  •  The Book of Ezekiel (11+ / 0-)

    The Book of Ezekiel is the third of the Latter Prophets in the Hebrew Bible, following the books of Isaiah and Jeremiah and preceding the Book of the Twelve. (The order is somewhat different in the Christian Old Testament). It derives its name from, and records the visions of, the 6th century BCE priest and prophet Ezekiel.

    According to the book, the prophet, exiled in Babylon, experienced a series of seven visions during the 22 years from 593 to 571 BCE, a period which spans the final destruction of Jerusalem in 586. The visions, and the book, are structured around three themes: (1) judgment on Israel (chapters 1-24); (2) judgment on the nations (chapters 25-32); and future blessings for Israel (chapters 33-48).

    The frequent use of vivid, symbolic language has much in common with the Book of Revelation in the New Testament. Wiki

    •  Book Of Ezekiel, Chapter 25, Verse 17..... (9+ / 0-)

      King James Version:

      "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."

      Quentin Tarantino's version:

      Tarantino "borrowed" it from the opening of 'Karate Kiba' (aka 'The Bodyguard') staring Sonny Chiba. The movie begins with:

      "The path of the righteous man and defender is beset on all sides by the iniquity 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 father of lost children. And I will execute great vengeance upon them with furious anger, who poison and destroy my brothers; and they shall know that I am Chiba the Bodyguard when I shall lay my vengeance upon them!"
