Exodus 1:1 of the Lutherbibel (1984) reads:
Dies sind die Namen der Söhne Israels, die mit Jakob nach Ägypten kamen; ein jeder kam mit seinem Hause.
These are the names of the sons of Israel, who with Jacob came to Egypt; each one came with his own house.
I understand the gist of it, but I'm a little confused by the choice of "Dies". I looked up this word and found that it's an alternative to "Dieser/diese/dieses" in the nominative/accusative neuter. Shouldn't the gender and number of "Dies" match the gender and number of "Namen" (masculine and plural)? In which case, you would expect the masculine plural form "Diese", would you not?
