** The 4th chapter of Matthew and [[RashomonStyle the books of the other apostles that cover the same events]] lampshade this trope, when {{Satan}} tries to tempt {{Jesus}} into throwing himself from the highest point in the temple, quoting from the Psalms to suggest that {{God}} will prevent Jesus from falling to his death. Jesus shoots back with "you shall not tempt the [[AC: LORD]] your God" from the book of Deuteronomy. Zing!

* ''{{Film/Sweetwater}}'': Josiah quotes "The wages of sin is death" to justify killing two men who stole his sheep. Of course, he's ignoring the whole "do not murder" bit, naturally.

* Combined with LastSupperSteal: ''Entertainment Weekly'' [[http://www.ew.com/article/2010/01/15/lost-doc-jensen-examines-new-lost-supper-promo Issue #1186]] (January 22, 2010) says of the promotional image of Series/{{Lost}}'s Last Supper that "The castaways' imbibing evokes the Bible verse: 'If the dead are not raised: ''Let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die''' [1 Corinthians 15:32b; Isaiah 22:13d, NAB]. Which is exactly what was at stake with last season's resurrection-or-bust Jughead cliffhanger."

Added DiffLines:

* In ''WebVideo/SwordArtOnlineAbridged'', the leader of the Laughing Coffin [[PlayerKilling PK]] guild does this as part of his "Bible-quoting serial killer" motif. Unfortunately when he picks verses like [[https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=judges+15%3A16&version=NIV Judges 15:16]], he just ends up confusing his would-be victims no matter how good his delivery is.

* Marvel books often have had Bible allusions. Particularly where TheVision is concerned, as in the episode titles "Where There Is No Vision..." and "Your Young Men Shall Slay Visions" .. a play on the original verse where it is "SEE visions".

* Lu-Tze in the ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' book ''Thief of Time'' frequently says things like "is it not written, it won't get better if you don't stop picking at it?" Usually it IS written, but only in the select quotes of Mrs. Cosmopolite (proprietress of an Ankh-Morpork boarding house) which was assembled by Lu-Tze and the only copy of which resides in Lu-Tze's back pocket.

** Omnian characters frequently quote the ''Book of Om''. For Constable Visit (-The Ungodly With Explanatory Pamphlets) it usually ends up being an IceCreamKoan, eg "What profiteth it a kingdom if the oxen be deflated?" Reverend Mightily (Praiseworthy Are Ye Who Exalteth Om) Oats is frequently troubled by this in ''Discworld/CarpeJugulum'', since he's studied enough to compare some events of the Book to historical phenomena with known explanations, but occasionally engages in randomly opening it to hope that the passage will give him aid. It rarely does... until he's stranded in rainy woods with Granny Weatherwax, who is dying from hypothermia, and he finds the passage "Where there is darkness, we shall make a great light." So he takes the book and a match and does just that.
