λαβεῖντὸ τητᾶσθαι. The aor. inf. expresses the act of receiving; the pres. inf., the state of privation. Cp. Ph. 95ἐξαμαρτεῖν...νικᾶν”. For “λαβεῖν” (without art.) as subject of “πέλει”, cp. Tr. 134 f. “ἐπέρχεται” | “χαίρειν τε καὶ στέρεσθαι”: for the use of the art. with “τητᾶσθαι” only, Soph. Ph. 495καὶ σοφοῖς” | “καὶ τοῖσι φαύλοις”. Somewhat similar is Soph. O. C. 808χωρὶς τό τ᾽ εἰπεῖν πολλὰ καὶ τὰ καίρια”, unless “τὸ καίρια” be read. For “τητᾶσθαι”, cp. 1326: O. C. 1200 n.
