Don't neglect the Old Testament Greek in your studies. Most of the Old
Testament quotes and allusions in the NT are from the Greek Septuagint

The Greek Septuagint with some critical apparatus is available in Rahlf's
landmark book.

Septuaginta, ed. A. Rahlfs , Stuttgart: Wrttembergische
Bibelanstalt, 1935; repr. in 9th ed., 1971.

The Parallel column version is Brenton's.

The Septuagint with Apocrypha: Greek and English, CL Brenton, Sanuel
Bagster & Sons, London, 1851. repr. Hendrikson Publishers, 1986-97.
