Hi Search Gurus ...

I'm trying to locate passages where the writer is speaking to\exhorting himself in some way e.g.

  • "Be at rest once more, O my soul, for the Lord has been good to you" (Ps 116:7)
  • "I say to myself 'The Lord is my portion, therefore I will wait for him'" (Lam 3:24)
  • "Awake, my soul" (Ps 57)

So the addressee can take the form of "myself" or "soul" or some such, but maybe there is some tag which includes all the forms.

But the form of the sentence can vary so much, and doesn't always include an imperative verb of some form, so I hope there is a way to use a Factbook based search to pick them up rather than try to enumerate all the various search terms I can think of.

I tried

{Speaker <Person David>} {Addressee <Person David>}

but all this finds is verses in which David is both speaking and spoken to, but not necessarily in the same speech action, and it doesn't pick up any of the Psalms references above.

Any suggestions appreciated!
