‘The 9 Most Badass Bible Verses’

The list from Cracked.com (Parental advisory: explicit lyrics) begins with the passage in Exodus in which Moses kills an Egyptian:

You can almost picture the scene: An Egyptian soldier is wailing on a hapless Hebrew when Moses, clothed in head-to- toe black, drops down from the ceiling. Moving with cat-like grace, he sneaks up behind the soldier and, taking his head in his hands, snaps the man’s neck with one savage twist. As the lifeless body slumps to the ground, Moses lights up a cigar. “Well,” he quips, “looks like someone bit off more than he could Jew.”

The list also includes the stories of Ehud killing the king Eglon and of Samson slaying a thousand men with the jawbone of a donkey. Not on the list? When Joshua re-circumcised the Israelites before they marched on Jericho.

What else is missing? Maybe Shadrach, Meshach and Abendego, David and Goliath, Sodom and Gomorrah?
