"Some of the strangest coincidences of all are to be found as patterns of numbers in the Bible.
Psalm 118 is the Bible's middle chapter. Just before it, Psalm 117 is the Bible's shortest chapter. Just after it, Psalm 119 is the longest.
The Bible has 594 chapters before Psalm 118 and 594 chapters after Psalm 118. If you add up all the chapters except Psalm 118, you get 1188 chapters. If you take the number 1188 and interpret as chapter 118 of Psalms, verse 8, you will find the middle verse of the entire Bible- "It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man."
Some would say that this is the central message of the Bible- and not just numerically."
