Translation:Regarding the earlier mentioned "health" application, we are informed to write down the first nine verses of this Psalm up to the phrase "Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron" on clean parchment. This is to be worn like a pendant on ones person in order to alleviate headaches. Be that as it may, the Sefer Shimmush Tehillim lists a further application of the second Psalm. In this instance it refers to instances when one should find oneself caught in a violent storm at sea. In order to be saved from the deluge it is suggested that one should first recite Psalm 2 in its entirety, then write it on a potsherd, and afterwards cast the latter into the raging sea.(Verse 1) Why are the nations in an uproar? And why do the peoples mutter in vain?(Verse 2) The kings of the earth stand up, and the rulers take counsel together against YHVH, and against His anointed:(Verse 3) ‘Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.’(Verse 4) ‘He that sitteth in heaven laugheth, Adonai hath them in derision.(Verse 5) Then will He speak unto them in His wrath, and affright them in His sore displeasure:(Verse 6) ‘Truly it is I that have established My king upon Zion, My holy mountain.’(Verse 7) I will tell of the decree: YHVH said unto me: ‘Thou are My son, this day have I begotten thee.(Verse 8) Ask of Me, and I will give the nations for thine inheritance, and the end of the earth for thy possession.(Verse 9) Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.’(Verse 10) Now therefore, O ye kings, be wise; be admonished, ye judges of the earth.(Verse 11) Serve YHVH with fear, and rejoice with trembling.(Verse 12) Do homage in purity, lest he be angry, and ye perish in the way, when suddenly His wrath is kindled. Happy are all they that take refuge in Him.
