  • NT quotes of OT comparing Septuagint and Masoretic texts

    Table of Old Testament quotes in the New Testament (AV) with comparisons to the Septuagint (Benton) and Masoretic (AV) texts.

    Please note the info about the Benton translation.
    Also, it should be noted the AV version of the Masoretic texts has a definite preference of translating the Hebrew of the Masoretic texts to agree with the AV translation of the Old testament quotes in the New Testament.
    To see a more literal English version see the RSV which uses the Masoretic texts and translates them more literally.
    The NASB, and some others, uses the Masoretic texts for the Old Testament except when the New Testament quotes the Septuagint, then the NASB, and some others, translates the Greek of the Septuagint for that particular Old Testament passage so that the passage agrees with the New Testament quote.
    Comparing Isaiah 7:14 may give which direction the translators chose.

    Thanks Glen, that is some list.

    I have noticed long ago that The Lord tells us to require at least two witnesses in any matter. So with that in mind I question any verse that has no witness in the entire Bible. It does not have to be a quote, but there has to be another verse that bears witness to any other verse.
