Quirky bible sayings.....

I heard the saying "a good samaritan" as a kid, like Good Samaritan Award. I dont remember who I heard it from but I got the jist of it. Its a good citizen doing the right thing, right? Well, Im assuming it derives from the bible and its an actual class of people. Anyway, what about the saying..."you will get struck by lightning" ? Does it also comes from the bible?

Do you want to share any? I know there a ton more......
