These are verses from the Bible

from Jay Z – Heaven Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Shoutout to Ab-Soul:

Jesus Christ and Shawn Carter are my only idols
No, Jesus Christ and Shawn Carter are my only rivals
I’m the Messiah of rap, my catalog’s the Bible

Additionally, Jay has said before that “his religion is the beat”, so it follows that his body of work is his scripture, with his lyrics being its verses.
