Now these are the names of the children of Israel, which came into Egypt; every man and his household came with Jacob. Exodus 1 by Holy Bible (KJV)

Jacob is the son of Isaac and Rebecca

He was given a prophetic vision by God of Israel’s future that proved to be accurate — that the Jews would establish their own nation, that they would be scattered like dust to the ends of the earth, that they would have a worldwide impact, and that they would one day return to their homeland.

“Now these are the names” is a translation of the Hebrew “ve-elleh shemoth”. The Jews use that phrase as the name of this second book, usually reducing the phrase to the single word “Shemoth” (“names”).

Exodus Bible Table of Contents by Holy Bible (KJV)

The name “exodus” means “going out” or departure". While it refers to one of the most important events of the book, the exodus of the Israelites from Egypt, other highly significant events are also found here, such as the oppression of the Chosen People in Egypt, the flight and call of Moses, and God’s covenant with the nation Israel at Sinai — an experience climaxed by His giving of the moral law (Ten Commandments) through Moses to the people.

A code of secular laws is also included, and the latter part of the book contains an elaborate description of the sacred Ark of the Covenant and its ten (tabernacle), God’s place of dwelling among His people.


The Hebrew common name of the book is “Sefer Shmot” (ספר שמות), “Book of ‘the names’” after the first important word in the text. This is the most common way that Jewish books or chapters are named.

However, each book of the Torah had a rabbinic nickname which describes it in some way, and these correspond to the Greek names that we are familiar with.

The rabbinic nickname for Exodus is “Sefer Yetsiat Mitsrayyim” or just “Sefer Yetsia”, “The Book of Departing Egypt / The Book of Departing” (ספר יציאת מצריים).

Judges Bible Table of Contents by Holy Bible (KJV)

Named after the “Judges of Israel,” the heroic leaders whose deeds it records, this book covers a period of time from the death of Joshua to the birth of Samuel, an era often called “the dark ages” of Hebrew history.

Here is a story, on the human side, of disobedience and disaster, and on the divine side, of direction and deliverance. Of the 13 judges named, only 3 are well known: Deborah, Gideon, and Samson.

Job Bible Table of Contents by Holy Bible (KJV)

So named from Job, its chief character, the book deals with an ageless question, one that is puzzling to every generation — the problem of human suffering, particularly the affliction of the righteous.

The reader is given an account of the sufferings of the pious Patriarch Job, of the argument carried on between Job and his friends as to the cause of his sufferings, and finally, of the solution to his difficulty. The book’s principal aim is to refute the popular view that all suffering is the result of sin in the life of the sufferer.

Genesis Bible Table of Contents by Holy Bible (KJV)

The word “genesis” signifies “generation” or “origin” and comes from the Greek translation of Genesis 2:4.

It is an appropriate title for the first book of the Bible, which contains the record of the origin of the universe, the human race, family life, nations, sin redemption, etc.

The first 11 chapters, which deal with primeval or pre-Patriarchal times, present the antecedents of Hebrew history from Adam to Abraham. The remaining chapters (12 — 50) are concerned with God’s dealings with the Patriarchs Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and Jacob’s son Joseph, all “fathers” of the people whom God has chosen to carry out His plan for the redemption of mankind. The book closes with these “Chosen People” in Egypt.


The Hebrew common name of the book is “Sefer B'reishit” (ספר בראשית), “Book of ‘In the Beginning’” after the first important word in the text. This is the most common way that Jewish books or chapters are named.

However, each book of the Torah had a rabbinic nickname which describes it in some way, and these correspond to the Greek names that we are familiar with.

The rabbinic nickname for Genesis is “Sefer Yetsira”, “The Book of Formation/Creation” (ספר יצירה).

Walk inside the label, struck a match, and then I blew, bomb The Jig Is Up (Dump'n) by Kendrick Lamar

Kendrick is using blew in two meanings

  • Blew, as in blew the match that Kendrick lit up

  • Blew up as in making it big, noted in this article which states Kendrick sold 250k in first week sales for Good Kid, M.A.A.D City

He’s also alluding to the fact that he blew up the labels expectations. He blew up the label — he blew up the way that labels have been making hip-hop for a while.
