Paul ’ s Quotation of Isaiah 54 . 1 in Galatians


Paul quotes from the Greek OT (LXX) a number of times in his letter to the Galatians. The quotations are sometimes more or less clearly marked as such (in 3.8, 10, 13, 16; 4.30; 5.14), sometimes not (in 3.6, 11, 12). The quotation of Isa 54.1 in 4.27 is also clearly marked, being introduced with an introductory formula ‘for it is written’ (gev graptai gav r), as are the quotations in 3.10 (also gev graptai gav r) and 3.13 (o} ti gev graptai). The citation follows the text of Isa 54.1 LXX exactly.1
