OT Psalm 89 : 14 – 29
NT Colossians 1 : 15 – 20

89:14 Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne; love and faithfulness go before you.
89:15 Blessed are those who have learned to acclaim you, who walk in the light of your presence, O LORD.
89:16 They rejoice in your name all day long; they exult in your righteousness.
89:17 For you are their glory and strength, and by your favor you exalt our horn.
89:18 Indeed, our shield belongs to the LORD, our king to the Holy One of Israel.
89:19 Once you spoke in a vision, to your faithful people you said: “I have bestowed strength on a warrior; I have exalted a young man from among the people.
89:20 I have found David my servant; with my sacred oil I have anointed him.
89:21 My hand will sustain him; surely my arm will strengthen him.
89:22 No enemy will subject him to tribute; no wicked man will oppress him.
89:23 I will crush his foes before him and strike down his adversaries.
89:24 My faithful love will be with him, and through my name his horn will be exalted.
89:25 I will set his hand over the sea, his right hand over the rivers.
89:26 He will call out to me, ‘You are my Father, my God, the Rock my Savior.’
89:27 I will also appoint him my firstborn, the most exalted of the kings of the earth.
89:28 I will maintain my love to him forever, and my covenant with him will never fail.
89:29 I will establish his line forever, his throne as long as the heavens endure.

1:15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.
1:16 For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him.
1:17 He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.
1:18 And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy.
1:19 For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him,
1:20 and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.
