Shimush Tehillim: On the Theurgical Use of Psalms attributed to Hai Gaon << שמוש תהלים |

“The entire Torah [consists of] G‽Δ’s Names which save and protect us...The five books of Tehillim correspond to the five books of the Torah and contain many wondrous secrets which defend and rescue Man from evil...All Gedolei HaOlam have agreed to this...and so we see that the Tashbatz [1361–1444] writes that since ויהי נועם (Psalms 90:17) has no letter ז (zayin), anyone who recites it will be saved from all כלי זיין (weapons)...”
