Psalm 16: To Find Out Name Of Robber, To Turn Sorrow Into Joy
Psalm 16 is important and can be profitably employed in different undertakings. As for example, 1st. If anyone has been robbed, he must proceed as follows : Take mud or slime and sand out of a stream, mix them together, then write the names of all suspected persons upon small slips of paper and apply the mixture on the reverse side of the slips; afterwards lay them in a large and clean bas in, fil led for this purpose with fresh water from the stream - lay them in the water one by one, and at the same time pray this Psalm over them ten times with the prayer adapted to it keeping in mind at the same time the name of Caar, that is, living, which name is to be found in the words of sixth verse, as follows: Chabalim, and Alei, and if the name of the real thief is written upon the slip, that upon which his name is written will rise to the surface. The prayer is as fol lows: let it be thy will, Eel, Caar, the living Cod to make known the name of the thief, who stole from me (here name that which was stolen). Cod grant that the name of the thief. if it is among the names, may arise before thy eyes, and thus be made known to mine an d all others who are present, that thy name may be glorified: grant it for the sake of thy holy name. Amen - Selah!
Whoever prays this Psalm daily with reverence, and in childlike trust upon the eternal love and goodness of Cod, directed to circumstances, will have all his sorrows changed into joy.
Finally, it is said, that the daily praying of this Psalm will change enemies into friends, and will disperse all pain and sorrow.
16 Preserve me, O God: for in thee do I put my trust.
2 O my soul, thou hast said unto the Lord, Thou art my Lord: my goodness extendeth not to thee;
3 But to the saints that are in the earth, and to the excellent, in whom is all my delight.
4 Their sorrows shall be multiplied that hasten after another god: their drink offerings of blood will I not offer, nor take up their names into my lips.
5 The Lord is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot.
6 The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly heritage.
7 I will bless the Lord, who hath given me counsel: my reins also instruct me in the night seasons.
8 I have set the Lord always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.
9 Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope.
10 For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.
11 Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.
