Psalm 2 For Danger At Sea Or Storm
Should you be exposed to danger in a storm at sea, and your life threatened, then re cite this Psalm without delay and with becoming reverence, and think respectfully of the holiest name contained therein, namely Scaddei (which means, mighty God), then immediately utter the prayer belonging thereto, after which write everything together on a fragment of a pot, and in full confidence in the Omnipotent, who fixe s the boundary of the se a and re strains its power, throw it into the foaming waves, and you will see marvelous wonders, for the waves will instantly cease their roaring and the storm will be lulled.
The words, the letters of which constitute this holy name, are taken from Rageschu, verse 1; Nosseu, verse 2; and Joses, verse 9.
The prayer is as follows: “Let it be, Oh, Schadei! (Almighty God!) Thy holy will, that the raging of the storm and the roaring of the waves may cease, and that the proud billows may be the place of our destination in safety and in good time stilled. Lead us, Oh, all merciful Father, to health, for only with Thee is power and might. Thou alone canst help, thus Thou wilt surely help to the honor and glory of Thy name. Amen! Selah!”
This Psalm is also an effectual remedy against a raging headache. The direction is as follows: Write the first eight verses of this Psalm together with the holy name and appropriate prayer, upon pure parchment, and hang it upon the neck of the patient; then pray over him the Psalm with the prayer arranged for it. Do this in humble devotion, and the sufferer will be relieved.
1 Why are the nations in an uproar? And why do the peoples mutter in vain?
2 The kings of the earth stand up, and the rulers take counsel together,
against the LORD, and against His anointed:
3 'Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.'
4 He that sitteth in heaven laugheth, the Lord hath them in derision.
5 Then will He speak unto them in His wrath, and affright them in His sore displeasure:
6 'Truly it is I that have established My king upon Zion, My holy mountain.'
7 I will tell of the decree: the LORD said unto me: 'Thou art My son, this day have I begotten thee.
8 Ask of Me, and I will give the nations for thine inheritance, and the ends of the earth for thy possession.
9 Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.'
10 Now therefore, O ye kings, be wise; be admonished, ye judges of the earth.
11 Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling.
12 Do homage in purity, lest He be angry, and ye perish in the way, when suddenly His wrath is kindled.
Happy are all they that take refuge in Him.
