Today we reached Psalm 117, the shortest chapter in the Bible.
The day after tomorrow we tackle the very longest chapter Psalm 119.

For the computer afflicted that means jumping from 136KB for Psalm 117 to a whopping 4.23MB download for Psalm 119.

Between the two lies Psalm 118, in Protestant Bibles this is usually the chapter that people figure to be the middle chapter of the 1189 in the whole Bible.

Does this make these three Psalms special? Probably not (the chapter divisions are not after all part of the traditional Bible being invented in 1205 by Stephen Langton). But – as they say – you be the judge!
