    Barnes' Notes on Psalms 35:22

    This thou hast seen, O Lord - Thou hast seen what they have done, as they profess to have seen what I have done Psalm 35:21. Thine eye has been upon all their movements, as they say that theirs has been upon mine. Compare the notes at Psalm 35:17.

    O Lord, be not far from me - Compare the notes at Psalm 10:1.
