Rejecting Ball and Bullet (Spell)

From The Long Lost Friend:

Charm Against Gunshot

The heavenly and holy trumpet blow every ball and misfortune away from me. I seek refuge beneath the tree of life which bears twelvefold fruits. I stand behind the holy altar of the Christian Church. I commend myself to the Holy Trinity. I [name] hide myself beneath the holy corpse of Jesus Christ. I commend myself unto the wounds of Jesus Christ, that the hand of no man might be able to seize me, or to bind me, or to cut me, or to throw me, or to beat me, or to overcome me in any way whatever, so help me. [N.]

Whoever carries this book with him is safe from all his enemies, visible or invisible; and whoever has this book with him cannot die without the holy corpse of Jesus Christ, nor drown in any water, nor burn up in any fire, nor can any unjust sentence be passed upon him. So help me.

From Egyptian Secrets of Albertus Magnus, Joseph H. Peterson edition:

Rejecting Ball and Bullet.

The heavenly and holy trumpets, they blow away all bul­lets, missiles and misfortunes from me. I fly under the tree of life, which beareth twelve different kinds of fruit. I stand behind the holy altar of the Christian church. I commend myself to the Holy Trinity, which concealed N. N. behind the Corpus Christi. I commend myself to Christ's holy wounds, that no man's hands may capture me in bonds; that I may not be hit, nor shot, nor stabbed, nor thrown; neither assailed or injured, or wounded by any one; that help me, N. N., who this little book carries on his person, who is se­cure from all his foes, be they visible or invisible. He, too, who carries this book ever with him, cannot die without the corpse of Christ, nor can such person drown in any water, nor burn in any fire, and no unjust verdict will ever be ren­dered against him. To this end, help me + + +
