Timeless Truths

Center of the bible

Psalm 118:8…… 8 It is better to trust in the LORD Than to put confidence in man.

It has been said that the Lord is in the center of the bible.  This is not the case for every bible.  There are perversions to God’s pure word.[1]

In the King James Authorized Version, the words: “the LORD” are at the very center of the book.  If you count each word from the end of the bible going backward, while in unison counting the very first word going forward, you will eventually come to a place where the two counts will meet. This will show you the exact middle of the bible.  In the King James Bible, that place is in Psalms 118:8. Within that verse, the exact center of the verse is the words, “the LORD”. 

Only in the King James Bible are the words “The LORD” found. Therefore, “the LORD” places Himself only in the center of one bible.

Because He lives,
