Looking at the a Hymn to Zeus which appears to be quoted in Pauls  
Mars Hill address I ran across a QEMIS ESTIN + infinitive  
construction sans ESTIN.

Cleanthes Phil., Fragmenta, Fr. 1, l. 3
CAIRE: SE GAR KAI PASI QEMIS QNHTOISI PROSAUDAN.

I am assuming that ESTIN is optional in this construction. The LEH  
(LXX Lexicon) entry on QEMIS places ESTIN in parentheses (ESTIN).
