A quotation is a word-for-word citation of the original source, often preceded by “it is written.”
An allusion is a reference to the original source using the the same key words or thoughts without quoting word for word.
Because the New Testament writers often borrow the language of the Old Testament (allusion) rather than quote verses directly, different scholars have different counts for the number of times an Old Testament book is quoted in the New Testament. Comparison of various sources reveals considerable variation as to what is interpreted as an Old Testament quotation. Also, many of the Old Testament quotes are from the Septuagint (LXX) which is why the New Testament wording may appear somewhat different.
