In John 15:25, it is written
25But this is to fulfill what is written in their Law: ‘They hated me without reason.’
Where in the Old Testament (in the exact phrasing) was Jesus quoting from? Scholars and theologians usually say that it is Psalm 69:4, where it is written
4Those who hate me without reason outnumber the hairs of my head; many are my enemies without cause, those who seek to destroy me. I am forced to restore what I did not steal.
Yet while I can see the resemblance, I don't exactly think it matches up with what Jesus said. Since this isn't an exact matching translation, can we then assume that there must have existed a manuscript of Old Testament literature (most likely the Psalms) that had that exact phrasing? Or should we stick with Psalm 69:4? Or perhaps there are some other verses in the Psalms or elsewhere?
