  • Craig on Psalms 127 - 4 years ago
    The Book of Psalms is a collection of individual songs and poems, each numbered.
    It is not a book separated into chapters, like the other books of the Bible.

    Therefore, it is not correct to speak of "Psalms Chapter 127," but of "the 127th Psalm," or " Psalm 127," or "Psalm number 127," or similar. It is not a chapter. Never was.

    It's exactly like Shakespeare's sonnets; no one refers to "Sonnets, Chapter X" but to "Sonnet Number X."

    None of the books originally had chapters or verses or pages or were bound together as one book. These exist as a convenience to aid in sharing the gospel, reading together, and sharing specific scripture. If you think it's wrong and want an authentic experience you can remove it all and handwrite it yourself on a series of scrolls, but even then it wouldn't be as authentic as if it were in Hebrew and Greek. Then again, it wouldn't be as authentic as if you were actually living in Jerusalem familiar with the names and places in the time Jesus lived. So, people are welcome to criticize the Bible, but should know that even today in its form it is still God's inspired Word and the message of hope for us is the same.

    Exactly, except none of the bible actually supposed to be spoken as chapters.
