The Center of the Bible

This is an interesting little fact my Aunt sent me regarding the Bible, it is from one of those chain-mail thngs but this one has a nice point to it.

Q: What is the shortest chapter in the Bible?

A: Psalms 117

Q: What is the longest chapter in the Bible?

A: Psalms 119

Q: Which chapter is in the center of the Bible?

A: Psalms 118

Fact: There are 594 chapters before Psalms 118

Fact: There are 594 chapters after Psalms 118

Add these numbers up and you get 1188.

Q: What is the center verse in the Bible?

A: Psalms 118:8

Q: Does this verse say something significant about God’s perfect will for our lives?

The next time someone says they would like to find God’s perfect will for their lives and that they want to be in the center of His will, just send them to the center of His Word!

Psalms 118:8

It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.

Now isn’t that odd how this worked out (or was God in the center of it)?

When things get tough, always remember…

Faith doesn’t get you around trouble, it gets you through it !!

God Bless You!

    Not to bash the Bible or the post but this is an urban myth.

    The middle chapter of the Bible is Psalm 117.

    And the middle verse of the Bible is Psalm 103:1. — Possibly even a better verse to code your life by.
