Mojibake strikes, so I'm putting this in here.

JOH01:01 初めに言があった。言は神と共にあった。言は神であった。
JOH01:02 この言は、初めに神と共にあった。
JOH01:03 万物は言によって成った。成ったもので、言によらずに成ったものは何一つなかった。
JOH01:04 言の内に命があった。命は人間を照らす光であった。
JOH01:05 光は暗闇の中で輝いている。暗闇は光を理解しなかった。

[ETA: 二人?二匹?二つ?!どっち?!リンさんの式を数えるためどっちを使えばいい?全然わからへん!

It is John 1, isn't it?

*laughs* Yep. That and the Lord's Prayer are what John recites when exorcising spirits. ^^; I can't believe I spent so long trying to figure out where it was. ^^;

Wandering in from Friends' FL with a stray fact. If these 式 are 式神, at one point the mangaka Ima Ichiko has a modern onmyouji-type character count them aloud as simple 一, 二, 三. So 二つ would seem to be it if you're in narrative voice or the character's speaking grammatically.

Mind you, these are bald ugly horned shikigami. Pretty things in robes might prompt one to count in 人. (And cut pieces of paper in 枚. ^_^)

Cheers on the note! ^_^ Fortunately (unfortunately?) these aren't the paper kind, so 枚 was out. A bit of a shame since paper would be a very indicator as to how to count them. :P
