First Peter and the Old Testament

“First Peter makes abundant use of the Old Testament, with at least eighteen direct citations and twenty-five allusions. The references are predominantly from four books—Genesis, Isaiah, Psalms, and Proverbs—and Peter normally makes
 Use of the Greek version, the Septuagint (LXX).”
