Psalm 15 : Against Insanity Or Melancholy Moods
Against the presence of an evil spirit, insanity and melancholy, pray this Psalm with the prayer belonging to it, and the holy name Iali which means: My Lord ! or the Lord, too, is mine, over a new pot filled with well water that was drawn for this express purpose and with this water bathe the body of the patient. The prayer which must be repeated during the process of washing is as follows: May it be thy will, 0 God, to restore N, son of R., who has been robbed of his senses, and is grievously plagued by the devil, and enlighten his mind for the sake of thy holy name lali. Amen - Selah!
The three letters of this holy name are found in the words: Jagur, verse 1; Ragal, verse 3, and Jimmont, verse 5.
He who otherwise prays this Psalm with reverence will be generally received with great favor.
1 Lord, who shall abide in thy tabernacle? who shall dwell in thy holy hill?
2 He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart.
3 He that backbiteth not with his tongue, nor doeth evil to his neighbour, nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbour.
4 In whose eyes a vile person is contemned; but he honoureth them that fear the Lord. He that sweareth to his own hurt, and changeth not.
5 He that putteth not out his money to usury, nor taketh reward against the innocent. He that doeth these things shall never be moved.
