Quotations in
New Testament Order
The table to below lists all quotations from the Old Testament which appear in the New.  The column labeled "Meaning" contains characters which indicate whether the particular citation agrees in meaning with the Septuagint where that differs from the Masoretic (Hebrew) text - or vice versa.  The column labeled "Quality" gives a sense for the agreement in word choice and order between the New Testament and the Septuagint.  A key to the symbols is provided at the bottom of this page and on the Table of Contents frame.

Detailed comparisons for each citation can be viewed by clicking on the Old Testament reference.  An explanation of the detailed comparisons format can be found here.

Key to the Table above:

* - implies the New Testament context indicates that this is a quotation.

- indicates that textual variants in the Septuagint are important.

- indicates that textual variants available in the Dead Sea Scrolls are discussed in the associated detailed summary.

° - indicates that textual variants in the New Testament are discussed in the associated detailed summary.

For the "Meaning" column:

U - according to the UBS 4th edition Greek New Testament, these passages agree with the Septuagint against the sense of the Hebrew text.

J - this is my own judgment based on head-to-head comparisons of the NewTestament and Septuagint.  A "J" indicates that the New Testament quotation agrees with the Septuagint in meaning, against the sense of the Hebrew text.

H - these passages, in my judgment, agree with the Hebrew against the sense of the Septuagint.

D - disagrees with both the Septuagint and the Hebrew

Annotations relating to "Quality":

P - perfect or near-perfect quotation from the Septuagint - only minor differences, such as word order, articles, inconsequential pronouns, etc.

S - perfect but some words replaced with synonymns (example - Romans 9.17) or with words of related meaning.

O - the New Testament omits portions of the Septuagint text - ellipsis (example - Mark 7.6-7).

L - poetic license employed by the New Testament author:  a portion of the Septuagint is replaced or reconstructed (example - Hebrews 10.5-7).

A - the New Testament author augments the Septuagint with additional wording (example - Romans 11.9-10).

F - fragmentary (some words in common - replacements as frequent or more so).

E - few to no words in common (empty set).

The "Weight" column indicates whether the Old Testament source is unique (weight=1), or if multiple Old Testament passages could be the source of the quotation (fractional weights).  In some cases, I have determined that one of the Old Testament sources listed by UBS is inferior to the others.  In those cases, I have assigned a weight of zero.  These weights are used to establish the total number of quotations, the percentage of quotations in agreement with the Septuagint text, etc.
