Paul (Saul) was a Jew who was well on his way up in Judaism (Acts 9:1-2, 26:4-5, 10-11 Gal 1:13-14, Phil 3:4-6).  So he knew his scripture (O.T.) and as he writes his epistles, the Holy Spirit brings these things to mind and reveals the hidden truths for the believers in Christ. Sometimes he quotes directly and other times allude to the ideas. 

1:16    For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:   Genesis  2 Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.   Nehemiah 9:6 Thou, even thou, art Lord alone; thou hast made heaven, the heaven of heavens, with all their host, the earth, and all things that are therein, the seas, and all that is therein, and thou preservest them all; and the host of heaven worshippeth thee.

3:5      Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry:     Leviticus 18:24 Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things: for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you:

3:11     Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.      Deuteronomy 7:6 For thou art an holy people unto the Lord thy God: the Lord thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth.

3:18 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord.
Ester 1:20 And when the king’s decree which he shall make shall be published throughout all his empire, (for it is great,) all the wives shall give to their husbands honour, both to great and small.

3:24     Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.      Daniel 12:1-3  And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book. And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.

1 Cor 3:11-14, 2 Tim 4:8,  James 1:12,  2 John 1:8,  Rev 2:10, Rev 4:10
