σὺ, though emphatic, is not scornful, but rather compassionate.— ἴασιν οὐκ ἔνεστ᾽ ἰδεῖν. The v.l.ἴασις” (cr. n.) might at first sight seem preferable; but the vulgate is stronger, through the weight thrown on the impersonal “οὐκ ἔνεστι”. There was also a weak v.l.ἔτι” for “ἰδεῖν”, but the latter balances “εὔροις” in 875.
