This week I received an email about some interesting Bible facts. Did you know that Psalms 117 is the shortest chapter in the Bible and that Psalms 119 is the longest? Psalms 118 sets between the shortest and longest chapter and it is the center chapter in the Bible. There are 594 Chapter before and after Psalms 118 and if you add them together they come to a total of 1188. Within Psalms 118 you find the center verse in the Bible Psalms 118:8. Psalms 118:8 says that “It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man”. All of this sounded very good, but according to my research it was not totally correct about the center chapter and verse. If it were completely true would it make Psalms 118:8 more important that other verses? To me, the location of a verse is not what’s significant about God’s word; the significance comes from God himself. In other words, putting your finger on the center of God’s word does not even compare to the importance of putting God’s word at the center of your life.
