So if Psalm 119 is 176 verses long, why two chapters earlier would there be the shortest song composed of only 2 verses (Psa 117:1-2)? Reminds me of the shortest sentence in the Bible with only 2 words (John 11:35)?
In other posts we’ve already talked about the fact that, if the whole Bible is basically the story of the God who came to our rescue in Jesus, then every subplot and detail of Scripture supports that Storyline.
But what about the details like the longest and shortest Psalms of the Bible which could sound simply like “Bible trivia” or “strange facts about the Book of books”? Could there be any relationship to Psalm 119 which is about to come when the songwriter simply says in 117:
Praise the Lord, all you nations; extol him, all you peoples.For great is his love toward us, and the faithfulness of the Lord endures forever. Praise the Lord (Psa 117).
