    from the Old Testament in the New, which are very numerous, are
    not made according to any uniform method. When the New Testament
    was written, the Old was not divided, as it now is, into
    chapters and verses, and hence such peculiarities as these: When
    Luke (20:37) refers to Ex. 3:6, he quotes from "Moses at the
    bush", i.e., the section containing the record of Moses at the
    bush. So also Mark (2:26) refers to 1 Sam. 21:1-6, in the words,
    "in the days of Abiathar;" and Paul (Rom. 11:2) refers to 1
    Kings ch. 17-19, in the words, "in Elias", i.e., in the portion
    of the history regarding Elias.
      In general, the New Testament writers quote from the
    Septuagint (q.v.) version of the Old Testament, as it was then
    in common use among the Jews. But it is noticeable that these
    quotations are not made in any uniform manner. Sometimes, e.g.,
    the quotation does not agree literally either with the LXX. or
    the Hebrew text. This occurs in about one hundred instances.
    Sometimes the LXX. is literally quoted (in about ninety
    instances), and sometimes it is corrected or altered in the
    quotations (in over eighty instances).
      Quotations are sometimes made also directly from the Hebrew
    text (Matt. 4:15, 16; John 19:37; 1 Cor. 15:54). Besides the
    quotations made directly, there are found numberless allusions,
    more or less distinct, showing that the minds of the New
    Testament writers were filled with the expressions and ideas as
    well as historical facts recorded in the Old.
      There are in all two hundred and eighty-three direct
    quotations from the Old Testament in the New, but not one clear
    and certain case of quotation from the Apocrypha (q.v.).
      Besides quotations in the New from the Old Testament, there
    are in Paul's writings three quotations from certain Greek
    poets, Acts 17:28; 1 Cor. 15:33; Titus 1:12. These quotations
    are memorials of his early classical education.
