A Textual Commentary On John 19:37

(a) In xix. 37 is a quotation from Zechariah xii. 10, which in the original is, ‘They shall look upon Me whom they pierced.’ Accordingly it is given in St John, ‘They shall look on Him whom they pierced’ (ὄψονται εἰς ὃν ἐξεκέντησαν). But the LXX rendering is, ‘They shall gaze upon Me, because they insulted’ (ἐπιβλέψονται πρός με, ἀνθ’ ὧν κατωρχήσαντο), where the LXX translators had a different reading, רָקְדוּ for דָקְרוּ and where their Greek rendering has not a single word in common with St John’s text.
