The Short and the Long of It

Psalm 117 holds two distinctions in the Bible. Can you name either?

The first has to do with its location. Psalm 117 is the middle chapter of the Bible. There are 594 chapters before Psalm 117 and 594 chapters after it.

The second distinction? Take a look at Psalm 117 (you don’t even have to read it) and the answer may come to you. The chapter only has two verses, making it the shortest chapter in the Bible.

The longest chapter of the Bible? Psalm 119 with 176 verses. It’s all about the Word of God.

The middle verse in the Bible is Psalm 118:8, which, interestingly enough states, “It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man.”
