Yeah Deano, you're right. The originals had no chapter or verse numbers. They didn't even have punctuation. Also, the length of sentences and therefore verses or chapters varies from translation to translation. The earliest Bibles varied in order of how the books were places as well, didn't they?

So...here's what I make of it so far...

obviously if you are at the exact middle one can assume the amount before and after is equal...lol

but...does 118 and 1188 mean anything? thats kinda weird isn't it? or am I just dense this morning?

I really don't care one way or another...but it could have just as easily been something "sick" about "God" like the part about abusing your wife or letting men have their way with your daughter.

very scary passage on second thought. I think I'll avoid sending anyone to the center afterall...lol
