About Exodus chapter 1 verse 1:

The Book of Exodus or, simply, Exodus (from Ancient Greek: éxodos, meaning "going out"; Hebrew: "Names", the second word of the beginning of the text: "These are the names of the sons of Israel", is the second book of the Torah and the Hebrew Bible (the Old Testament).

Structure

There is no unanimous agreement among scholars on the structure of Exodus. One strong possibility is that it is a diptych (i.e., divided into two parts), with the division between parts 1 and 2 at the crossing of the Red Sea or at the beginning of the theophany (appearance of God) in chapter 19.[5] On this plan, the first part tells of God's rescue of his people from Egypt and their journey under his care to Sinai (chapters 1–19) and the second tells of the covenant between them (chapters 20–40).
