Listen to me, O Jacob,
and Israel my called:
I am he. I am the first,
I also am the last. Bible

“I am the first.” Yahweh, the God of Israel, calls himself the first and the last earlier, in Isaiah 44:6, and He calls Himself the same thing here. In the New Testament, after Jesus assumes his place at God’s right hand as God’s second in command, Jesus is called the first and the last. See commentary on Revelation 1:17.
