Samuel L. Jackson Recites His Biblical PULP FICTION Speech


Last week, during an appearance on BBC One’s “The Graham Norton Show”, Samuel L. Jackson made clear that he remembered the now famous “Ezekiel 25:17” monologue from Quentin Tarantino‘s Pulp Fiction in full.

Asked if he would be willing to recite Jules Winnfield’s fire-and-brimstone speech from memory, without hesitation the actor said he could and proceeded to recite it.

Actually, Norton asked him to recite it to the theoretical man who might pick up his daughter for a date, which somehow makes it more terrifying.

“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 the 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 attempt to poison and destroy My brothers. And you will know I am the Lord when I lay My vengeance upon you.”

SLJ – who was most recently seen as Nick Fury in Marvel’s The Winter Soldier – was a little rusty at the beginning, but by the end he was nailing the tone that he reached during the famous scene in Pulp Fiction. Check out the original clip below.
