γνώμαν ἴσχεις=“γιγνώσκεις” ( Ph. 837, Ph. 853). ἐξ οἵων, ‘by what kind of conduct.’ (Not, ‘from what a position’ of possible comfort,—like that of her more prudent sisters.) τὰ παρόντ̓, ‘in respect to present circumstances,’—‘as matters stand’; i.e., already they are bad enough (217, 235). Cp. Thuc. 4. 17“ἀεὶ γὰρ τοῦ πλέονος ἐλπίδι ὀρέγονται διὰ τὸ καὶ τὰ παρόντα ἀδοκήτως εὐτυχῆσαι”: where, as here, “τὰ παρόντα” is acc. of respect, not subj. of the inf. Groundless objections to “τὰ παρόν<*>）” have prompted conjectures (cr. n.). οἰκείας, ‘caused by thyself’: Ai. 260“οἰκεῖα πάθη”, | “μηδενὸς ἄλλου παραπράξαντος”.
