κακά and σωτήρια are predicates: cp. Eur. Hipp. 471ἀλλ᾽ εἰ τὰ πλείω χρηστὰ τῶν κακῶν ἔχεις”. Cp.

ἐκ τῶν γὰρ αἰσχρῶν λημμάτων τοὺς πλείονας
ἀτωμένους ἴδοις ἂν σεσωσμένους

. Oed. means: "By pleading with me to return, you will only illustrate your own heartlessness: you will never win me as a safeguard for Thebes."
