Scripture quoted in the Old Testament

The Bible is a long book. Because of that, I find that it can be hard to grasp its message and unity. I've started keeping an eye out for passages where people in the Old Testament quote earlier Scripture. I want to limit myself to the Old Testament for now because I feel that by understanding God's word before He sent Christ, I'll be better equipped to understand Jesus and the New Covenant believers. I've started keeping an eye out for these "quotations." Here are some notes so far

"God Most High, the Possessor of heaven and earth" (Genesis 14:19-20)
  • Genesis 14:22 (Abram)
  • Genesis 24:3 (Abraham)

"To your descendants I give this land" (Genesis 12:7, Genesis 15:18-21)
  • Genesis 24:7 (Abraham)
  • Exodus 33:1 (God)
  • Deuteronomy 34:4 (God)

  • Daniel 9:4 (Daniel)

"I will scatter you among the nations" (Leviticus 26:33)
  • Nehemiah 1:8 (Nehemiah)

  • Jeremiah 33:11
  • Ezra 3:11
  • Psalms 106:1, 107:1, 118:1-4, 118:29, 136
