Abstract Two pieces of rhetorical theory support reading Pss 4 and 62 as arguments to strayers to return to faithfulness. First, amplitude is devoted to direct address of strayers and directives for returning. Second, with positive identification, speakers connect to hearers with shared experiences and values; with negative identification, speakers repel hearers away from rivals by painting them as radical extremists. Modern rhetorical theory proves useful for addressing contested elements of the psalms.
