παρ᾽ ὑμῖν ... φυλάσσεται is guarded, stored, in your keeping: i.e. how much envy do ye tend to excite against those who receive your gifts. φυλάσσεται, stronger than τρέφεται, represents envy as the inseparable attendant on success: cp. Soph. OC 1213 “σκαιοσύναν φυλάσσων,” stubborn in folly: Eur. Ion 735 “ἄξι᾽ ἀξίων γεννητόρων ι ἤθη φυλάσσεις.”
