οἰκεῖα πάθη, those which one brings on himself: so El. 215οἰκείας εἰς ἄτας ἐμπίπτεις.

παραπράξαντος, having acted ‘at the side,’ i.e., ‘having had a hand in the matter,’—‘having contributed to the result.’ This sense nowhere else belongs to “παραπράσσω” (which in Her. 5. 45 means ‘to do something beyond’ one's proper task, and in Plut. Agis 16‘to exact unjustly’); but for the force of the prep., cp. “παραίτιος” ( Aesch. Ch. 910, etc.), as=‘partly the cause.’— Not, ‘having done amiss’ (=“παραβάντος”).

ὑποτείνει: lit., ‘lays to’ (or ‘beneath’) the mind: [Dem. ] or. 13 § 19 “τὰς ἐλπίδας ὑμῖν ὑποτείνων”.
