Selah Selah

Have you ever been reading a verse in the Bible and at the end of it there is the word "Selah"? If so, do you know what it means? I have been thinking about the significance of this little word; for those of you who don't know what it means, it means "stop - and think about what you've just read".

Today I would like to stop and think about stopping and thinking about what we read in the Bible. Too often it is easy to read the Bible and just process the words as we move along. We go from verse to verse, sometimes chapter to chapter, and we don't really meditate on what Scripture is saying.

So, with the Bible being so rich and full of truth. I would like to suggest that when we read it (whether at church, or a daily reading plan, or whatever) that we imagine there is a "Selah" at the end of every verse.

Psalms 119:18
Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.
