The Bible’s middle verse

The is the central verse in the Bible:

Psalm 118:8 (KJV) It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.

Notice that the center of the center verse is the LORD. The Bible is centered on God. It is centered on trusting God rather than trusting man. Trusting God rather than man means trusting God’s word rather than man’s word. For example, we should trust God’s word and what it says about the beginning of the earth rather than trusting man’s word and what man says about the beginning of the earth.

  1. There are 1189 chapters in the Bible. There is the middle one and 1188 others – move the : over one place, and you have 118:8, which is the middle verse of the Bible. (Just an easy trick to remember this fact.)

    I find it interesting that the shortest chapter is the one right before it (117), and the longest is the one right after (119).
