ἵν᾽ … ἁρπάζητε, with grim irony, since they are to die before they can apply the lesson. So O. C. 1377 (Oed. calls down destruction upon his sons) “ἵν᾽ ἀξιῶτον τοὺς φυτεύσαντας σέβειν”, where see n. Cp. below, 716. τὸ κέρδος, accus. (cp. 1242): ἔνθεν οἰστέον (“ἐστί”). μάθηθ᾽, aor., learn once for all: but “ἁρπάζητε”, pres., go on stealing. ἐξ ἅπαντος, from every source, with τὸ κερδαίνειν: Xen. Mem. 2.9.4 “οὐ γὰρ ἦν οἷος ἀπὸ παντὸς κερδαίνειν”: Ar. Th. 735“ὦ ποτίσταται ι κἀκ παντὸς ὑμεῖς μηχανώμεναι” “πιεῖν”. In O. C. 807 “ἑξ ἅπαντος εὖ λέγει” =speaks well on any theme (starting from anything).
