a-wak' yaqats, ("to waken"; `ur, "to rouse up" from sleep; egeiro, "to arouse from sleep"):

The ordinary terms for awaking from natural slumber: as of Jacob at Bethel (Genesis 28:16); of Solomon at Gibeon (1 Kings 3:15); of Jesus in the storm-tossed boat (Luke 8:24).

Used figure with striking effect of awaking from mental, moral and spiritual sleep:

as when Deborah calls upon herself to awake to the fervor and eloquence of poetry (Judges 5:12); of Zion's awaking to moral vigor and beauty (Isaiah 52:1); of waking from spiritual death (Ephesians 5:14); from the grave in resurrection (Daniel 12:2). Poetically used of the rising north wind (Song of Solomon 4:16); of music (Psalms 108:2); of the sword in battle (Zechariah 13:7); of a lover's affection (Song of Solomon 2:7); of God Himself responding to prayer (Psalms 59:4). Also used of moral awaking, as from drunkenness: eknepho, "to become sober" (compare Joel 1:5).
