The criteria of literary dependence – external plausibility; significant similarities; intelligibility of differences – indicate that the present text of Genesis uses the three great prophetic books: Ezekiel, Jeremiah, and Isaiah. Generally, the dependence is systematic: mostly, Ezekiel is used in Genesis 1–14; Isaiah 1–39 in Genesis 15–21; Jeremiah in much of the Jacob story, and in some texts concerning Abraham and Joseph; and Isaiah 40–66 in the Joseph story (and Genesis 1).
