The Psalms have been as a form of Theurgy, and one not too far from spellcraft, within a number of traditions. From traditional Kabbalah, to Ceremonial Magic, and even in Hoodoo, we find a number of references where certain psalms are chanted to acquire a specific effect. Especially in hoodoo, such words can be chanted over candles, and thus make a fantastic addition to candle magic, or can be said over mojo bags or any other number of objects. Often, the Psalms regarding healing are chanted over water and consumed or rubbed over the afflicted regions.
I typed up these as a summary from the descriptions found in the so-called "Sixth and Seventh Book of Moses", an 18th century grimoire in the style of the Solomonic school of Ceremonial Magic. I hope that these may be of assistance to those who do not limit their practices, but might find use of ones that may otherwise seem contradictory. And, for those that may live in an environment where "witchy" items are contraband, this may assist you in achieving desired results otherwise difficult to do. For example, for banishing an area of negative influence, I *highly* recommend Psalm 91. I also find a special irony in using any number of the Psalms written to prevent persecution--- against those same people who would use the same book containing it to persecute. :)

Notes: Those that are listed in pairs, such as 148/149, is taken to mean that either one of them may be used for the purpose listed. Any translation could work, since it is the Will that matters most, but I recommend the JPS (Jewish Publication Society) translation, of which may be found online. I would also like to add, since some of the Psalms have properties that could be manipulative and, in some cases destructive, that using such words are purely up to the moral character and direction of the user. I thereby free myself from any and all accountability should one choose to use the more destructive examples, be ye responsible for your own actions. I have used a number with success. Your mileage may vary.
