The Bible inspires quite a few of the verbal charms used in Ozark Folk Magic, some of which are exactly the same as those used by the Pennsylvania Dutch Brauchers.
One example is the following verse, from Ezekiel 16:6
“And when I passed by thee, and saw thee polluted in thine own blood, I said unto thee when thou wast in thy blood, Live; yea, I said unto thee when thou wast in thy blood, Live.”
This charm is used in a variety of ways, generally spoke three times over the person who is suffering the bleeding. However, if the person is not present, the charm is used by speaking the person’s name before the recitation of the charm, during each recitation, while walking towards the east.
Note: This charm is recorded as part of folk lore and is not meant to be a substitution to professional Medical Assistance.
