    Stir up thyself, and awake to my judgment - I have delivered my cause into thy hand, and appeal to thee as my Judge; and by thy decision I am most willing to abide.

    Barnes' Notes on Psalms 35:23

    Stir up thyself - Arouse thyself as if from sleep. See Psalm 44:23.

    And awake to my judgment - To execute judgment for me, or to render me justice. A similar petition (almost in the same words) occurs in Psalm 7:6. See the notes at that passage.

    Even unto my cause - In my behalf; or, in the cause which so nearly pertains to me.

    Wesley's Notes on Psalms 35:23

    35:23 Awake - To plead my cause against mine adversaries.
