οὕνεχ᾽φράσαι: that thou hast come near, αἴσιος σκοπὸς ὧν (=τούτων ) ἀδηλοῦμεν, an opportune inquirer into our doubts, φράσαι, so as to explain (epexegetic infin., cp. 50). σκοπὸς has its ordinary sense of "scout" (cp. n. on 297). Oedipus supposes that the man has been sent to make inquiry. τούτων is objective gen. after σκοπός.
