    Does anybody know this Latin Prayer?
    My grandfather handed it down to my uncle.

    Serious answers only please.

    Thank you very much and a happy 2013! :)

    Are you sure it's Latin? It doesn't really look like it...
  3. The only word that is to be Latin in that prayer is"verbum" yet 'orabetis' looks like it could be a garbled form of 'oro' perhaps? As for the rest, like Dido said, it doesn't look like Latin. Perhaps Turkish or something similar?

    Well you posted this on several places and it has been told to you already that this is not Latin.

    Google Translate (please don't hit me!) detects it as Turkish, but doesn't give a translation. It's surely not Latin, but I wonder which language it is then.

    You will get nothing but serious answers here, amice (friend). ;) Anyway, my best guess is that maybe it's a mixture of quite a few languages? The "z" in higozum is only used in Greek words. That's all I could come up with.

    Aram, Akdam, Aksadam are three archangels who guided Jesus Christ.

    Was it found on the anting anting, or the triangle medalyon, the solo mata?

    I searched the first three words and got a section from the Vulgate. Something about Noah's sons. And a genealogy "and Hezron begat Ram..." And so on all the way to Abraham, so it's definitely religious somehow.

    Sorry! Can't find the edit button! But I jut did a search on aram, and some stuff about Shem came up. So maybe the other words, akdam and aksadam are the other two sons, but Ham/Canaan was the "bad" son? It's sad, we had a test on this on 12/21 in school and I can't remember this without looking back at notes...and google.
  9. My searches are telling me it is some kind of Filipino prayer for protection.

    Footnote 26, btw.

    When I typed Aram, Akdam, Aksadam into Google it automatically changed the k's to c's, not that it matters really...

    Yes indeed - Aram, Akdam, Aksadam in Filipino means the three archangels who guided Jesus Christ, and can be found on an amulet or anting anting.

    Another Italic language, Oscan or Umbrian perhaps? 'Higozum' looks like an unroticised genitive plural of an 'o' stem noun.

    Could it be Amharic or Coptic???

    In the Esoteric Knowledge, there are multiple names of the Three Persons, like: ARAM – name of the Father, AKDAM – son and AKSADAM – Holy Spirit; ADRA – Father, MADRA – Son and ADRADAM – Holy Spirit.

    malatu ??
    yasalem, yäsälem = to bring peace (Amharic, Semitic)
    barna? bal ( bal => ba'al ??; Lord, God)

    ora-bet-is ; bet = house, home??? (hebrew, arabic)

    verbum higozum hom ???

    I'd say it's most likely to be hocus-pocus.

  15. Anyway it doesn't seem to belong to any Christian church. I think it belongs to a kind of esoteric/New Age/witchcraft group and its conception of the Trinity.

    It is a latin Prayer from Philippines....

    Would like to understand what you know about this?

    Simply understanding what it means would be nice.

    The triangle medalyon. what if it was found on that one, the Solo Mata?

    Og bisaya ka bai. Mao nay gitawag nga pulong or bat2, pag ampo na bai, di mn jd na sya higozum, kungdi "eguzom" , ang akdam usually i replace na sya og name sa imu i-samba .
