Magic Verses
by Erasmus

Legend has it that a devil told St Bernard that he knew of seven verses from the Psalms which, if repeated daily, would ensure salvation. When he would not reveal which they were, the saint is said to have replied that, since he recited daily the whole psalter; he must anyway include the seven magic verses.
