CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
Put me in remembrance - That is, urge all the arguments in your own defense which you can urge. State everything in self-vindication which can be stated.

"Coastlands, listen to Me in silence, And let the peoples gain new strength; Let them come forward, then let them speak; Let us come together for judgment.
All the nations have gathered together So that the peoples may be assembled. Who among them can declare this And proclaim to us the former things? Let them present their witnesses that they may be justified, Or let them hear and say, "It is true."
