Series DNA Bible - Evidence #1 - the center chapter of the Bible

Evidence #1: Psalm 117, an amazing centerpoint
So, if we look at the Bible as one book (made up of sixty-six smaller books), then from the beginning (Genesis 1) to the end (Revelation 22), it has 1,189 chapters. The halfway point in those 1,189 chapters, then, is Psalm 117, which has 494 chapters that precede it and 494 chapters that follow it. This shortest-of-all chapters, which forms the halfway “hinge,” captures the essence of the Bible’s message:
Praise the LORD, all nations;
         Laud Him, all peoples!
For His lovingkindness is great toward us,
         And the truth of the LORD is everlasting.
         Praise the LORD!
