Bible trivia question


So here's a neat coincidence. What is the center verse of the Bible?

Psalm 118:8
It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in man.

Some people might say this is an utter coincidence. Others might say differently.

(No, I didn't take this photo.)

  1. I would say that when it comes to God, there is no such thing as coincidence.

  2. No coincidence with God...that's for sure! :) Nice reminder.

  3. Also worth noting that Psalm 117 is the shortest chapter in the Bible and Psalm 119 is the longest chapter in the Bible.

  4. Sorry, but at least according to the following link (go slightly below mid-page)you are off by one:

    Not that Psalm 117 is a bad one.

    Psalm 117:

    1. O praise the Lord, all ye nations: praise him all ye people.

    2. For his merciful kindness is great toward us, and the truth of the Lord endureth forever. Praise ye the Lord.

    Of course different bibles include a slightly different selection of books.

  6. Are you using the bible as it was codified 1500 years ago, or are you using the bible with books removed because they conflicted with someones personal beliefs?

  7. No coincidences in life, particularly not in the Bible. With the right teacher, it's truly amazing how deliberate everything is in the Good Book. (KJV)

  9. Since A.P. and I study with the same teacher, I know exactly what she means about no coincidences in life or in the Bible.

    Likewise, there are no contradictions in Scripture once we learn how to rightly divide the Word.

    God bless America and our freedom to worship and study.
