ἐκ πάντων, (chosen) out of all, δίχα adv. (with “ἱκέσθαι”) apart from them: cp. 656πόλεως . . ἐκ πάσης μόνην”, 1137 “τὰν ἐκ πασᾶν τιμᾷς”: El. 1351ὅν ποτ᾽ ἐκ πολλῶν ἐγὼ μόνον προσηῦρον πιστόν”. In other places, where “δίχα” is prep. with gen., we find it similarly connected with another expression of like purport, as Ai. 749ἐκ...κύκλου . . μεταστὰς οἷος Ἀτρειδῶν δίχα.

ἔστειλ᾽ ἱκέσθαι: lit., by means of messengers I caused you to set forth, so that you should come (epexeg. inf.): Ph. 60οἵ σ᾽ ἐν λιταῖς στείλαντες ἐξ οἴκων μολεῖν”. But “στέλλεσθαι” (midd.) ‘to summon to oneself’ (O. T. 434): cp. n. O. T. 860.— τοῦτο μέν, answered by “τοῦτ᾽ αὖθις”: see 61 n.

σέβοντας, like “μένοντας” (169), part. of the imperf.,=“ὅτι ἐσέβετε”: so 1192: O. T. 835τοῦ παρόντος” (n.): and cp. on O. C. 1565 f.

θρόνων . . κράτη, powers belonging to the throne: cp. 60, 173.
