Did You Know?

Did you know...

Psalm 118 is the middle chapter of the entire Bible?

Before Psalm 118, Psalm 117 is the shortest chapter in the Bible?

After Psalm 118, Psalm 119 is the longest chapter in the Bible?

That there are 594 chapters each before and following Psalm 118?

That if you add up all the chapters except Psalm 118, you get a total of 1188 chapters.

And incidentally, 1188 or Psalm 118 verse 8 also happens to be the middle verse of the entire Bible.

The central verse should have a fairly important message don't you think?

"It is better to take refuge in the Lord
than to trust in man."

What an interesting prespective...

God in the small things :)

I am going to copy this and keep it somewhere as a reminder of that very sentiment. He cares so much for us.

Hi Deanna! Now I need to go read Psalm 118 and particularly verse 8 even though you quoted it right here!

I find this kind of information absolutely intriguing!

Happy Monday!
