Psalms and Verses in Hoodoo As stated elsewhere, hoodoo is not a religion. It is a system of spiritual practices and magic.

Hoodoo grew up in the USA in the shadow of the larger culture of Christianity in white society. This American created form of magic adjusts and adapts itself to the larger culture around it--absorbing what its practioners can and want to use. Hence, in areas where Christian Catholicism was dominant, practitioners often used Catholic prayers. In areas where sundry forms of Christian Protestantism was strong, bible verses, usually from the King James Version, were employed. The extensive use of the Psalms in hoodoo related to the book by Godfrey Selig, Secrets of the Psalms, A Fragment of the Practical Kabala. An English translation of this book was available in late 1930s or early 1940s in the USA. There are reports that African-American conjure doctors in Memphis did read and use this text. (Catherine Yronwode wrote a fascinating article, SECRETS OF THE PSALMS, examining Selig's book and its involvement history and practice.) Some versions of the 18th century Sixth and Seventh Books of Moses contain information on the magical uses of the biblical Psalms. By the 19th century, an English language version of the Sixth and Seventh Books of Moses was one of the magical "receipt-books" used by AfricanAmericans.i For example, Protestant Southern Baptists also believed firmly in the strength of scripture and the power of God's word to cure the spiritual and physical woes of mankind.
Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. (Matthew 7:78) And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive. (Matthew 21:22) And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible. (Mark 10:27) But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible. (Matthew 19:26)

Bible verses were embroidered on samplers and pillows as words to inspire Godly behavior and draw blessings from the Almighty. White Southern Christians would have been largely unconcerned with African-American servants, etc. reciting Psalms or verses from the King James Version.

The effectiveness of prayer was widely believed in the USA South. To illustrate how some Psalms and other verses in the King James Version were and are still used by some practitioners, I have assembled a collection of examples. Certainly there were more, and probably which Psalms and verses were used where, varied from practitioner to practitioner. Doubless these words were faithfully recited over candles and huricane oil lamps, remedies and mojos, as well as other charms. Certainly, some were used in connection with roots, herbs, and other medicinal and special items. It is said that many cures are brought about by trees, roots, and herbs, butpowerful cures are brought about by Word of God. Sometimes more than one of the Psalms or verses would be used with others. Healing Severe Headache or Backache Psalm 3 was recited to treat a severe headache or a backache. It would be recited over rubbing oil, and then massaged into the head and/or back while praying. This Psalm was traditionally used in banishing and troublesome and oppressive spirits, who might be responsible for the physical discomfort.
Lord, how are they increased that trouble me! many are they that rise up against me. Many there be which say of my soul, There is no help for him in God. Selah. But thou, O LORD, art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head. I cried unto the LORD with my voice, and he heard me out of his holy hill. Selah. I laid me down and slept; I awaked; for the LORD sustained me. I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people, that have set themselves against me round about. Arise, O LORD; save me, O my God: for thou hast smitten all mine enemies upon the cheek bone; thou hast broken the teeth of the ungodly. Salvation belongeth unto the LORD: thy blessing is upon thy people. Selah. (Psalm 3)

A prayer such as the following may be added:
Lord of the world, may it please thee to be my physician and helper. Heal me and relieve me from my severe headache and backache, because I can find help only with thee and only with thee is counsel and action to be found. Amen. Selah.

Likewise Psalm 3 could have been also recited to bless the cup of feverfew tea or the bit of willow bark to be chewed as these were both Southern headache cures used by African-Americans. [In the early 20th century, it might have been recited over the "miracle drug" aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid). I suppose one could update this cure by reciting the verses over a couple of acetaminophen tablets.] Bringing Good Luck Psalm 4 could be recited by someone who had been unlucky in spite of her/his good efforts. It ought to be recited three times just before sunrise.
Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness: thou hast enlarged me when I was in distress; have mercy upon me, and hear my prayer. O ye sons of men, how long will ye turn my glory into shame? how long will ye love vanity, and seek after leasing? Selah. But know that the LORD hath set apart him that is godly for himself: the LORD will hear when I call unto him. Stand in awe, and sin not: commune with your own heart upon your bed, and be still. Selah. Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, and put your trust in the LORD. There be many that say, Who will shew us any good? LORD, lift thou up the light of thy countenance upon us. Thou hast put gladness in my heart, more than in the time that their corn and their wine increased. I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, LORD, only makest me dwell in safety. (Psalm 4)

This paper should be folded and burned in a fireproof bowl with sand. with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield. LORD.

It ought to be recited seven times before sunrise. etc. for they have rebelled against thee. let them fall by their own counsels. steps. Thou shalt destroy them that speak leasing: the LORD will abhor the bloody and deceitful man. because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee.

Selah. For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with thee. or similar prayer well suited: May it please thee.
