The VERY middle verse

Jason writes, all excited:
I found this in the Fall edition of the Wesley upper elementary curriculum Teacher's guide p. 4

"Consider that the shortest chapter in the Bible is Psalm 117, and the longest is Psalm 119. Psalm 118 is the center chapter in the Bible. So we have the middle chapter of the Bible wedged between the shortest and longest chapters. This"mild phenomenon" gets more compelling when you realize that there are 594 chapters through Psalm 118 and exactly 594 chapters after Psalm 118. When you add up all the chapters of the Bible, you end up with 1188. Did you know that the very center verse of the Bible is Psalm 118:8."

And Psalm 118:8 reads:
"It is better to take refuge in the LORD than to trust in man."

Saw your article at Crosswalk.com. What an amazing ministry! Would Dayspring be interested in working with an interdenominational campus ministry at Mississippi College?
