From Association of Independent Readers and Rootworkers
Hoodoo psychic readers, spirit workers and root doctors who recite Psalms on behalf of clients may work with Psalm 120 during
altar work and prayers for assistance in court proceedings. Psalm 120 is used to gain the favor of a judge. Root doctors will recite Psalm 120 on behalf of clients so that they may be victorious in court. This Psalm is also used for protection while traveling, especially against snakes and scorpions.
 In my distress I cried unto the LORD, and he heard me.
 Deliver my soul, O LORD, from lying lips, and from a deceitful tongue.
 What shall be given unto thee? or what shall be done unto thee, thou false tongue?
 Sharp arrows of the mighty, with coals of juniper.
 Woe is me, that I sojourn in Mesech, that I dwell in the tents of Kedar!
 My soul hath long dwelt with him that hateth peace.
 I am for peace: but when I speak, they are for war.
