As can be easily seen Psalm 118 is not the center chapter of the Bible. Doing a little math it is seen that there are 594 chapters from Genesis 1 to and including Psalm 116 and 594 chapters remain from Psalm 118 through Revelation chapter 22. This makes Psalm 117 the central chapter in the Bible. As correctly stated previously, Psalm 117 is indeed the shortest book in the Bible, with only two verses. Therefore there is no central verse in the central book of the Book of the Bible, just a central chapter of two verses in length.
O praise the LORD, all ye nations: praise him, all ye people. For his merciful kindness is great toward us: and the truth of the LORD endureth for ever. Praise ye the LORD. Psalm 117
GOD is mercifully kind to us and is true forever! "Praise GOD! Meditation could be profitable on these two verses and they are most definitely true. They are physically, the central verses of the Bible and they actually describe central themes of scripture, which are GOD's mercy, grace and His truth. He had so much mercy and kindness for all and He made a plan and provided for all the costs so we could be with Him forever.
Although information abounds on many spiritual and Biblical issues don't be fooled just because the presentation looks and sounds good. God's Word is the real truth; the only real truth. While it is useful to readily hear and receive what others may say or write, the facts should be checked against scripture, in fact we are commended to search the scriptures to test the facts.
And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming thither went into the synagogue of the Jews. These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so. Acts 17:10-11
While it is useful to teach or be taught by others, it is not necessary. The Holy Spirit received at the time of salvation, is resident in all believers and is responsible for that function.
But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him. 1 John 2:27
Actually and amazingly, the supposed central verse in the Bible, shown above, applies perfectly here.
It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man. Psalm 118:8
Though this verse is not the center verse in scripture, meditating on its precepts, with a little twist, is a blessing! Part of meditation can be association of ordinary objects with scripture. With this thought in mind, become a tree.planted in the middle of the road, or better yet, in all parts of the road!
