οὔκουν (872 n.) ἐν οἷς γε δρᾷς (“αἰσχρὸς φανεῖ”): in respect of thy deeds (thus far) thou certainly wilt not be found “αἰσχρός”: ἐν οἷς δὲ αὐδᾷς, but in respect of what thou sayest—i.e., in respect of the future conduct which thy words foreshadow,

ὀκνῶ (“μὴ αἰσχρὸς φανῇς”).—For the emphasis given to δρᾷς by place and pause, cp. 989 (“Ζεύς”), 1009 (“σοῦ”): Ant. 555σὺ μὲν γὰρ εἵλου ζῆν, ἐγὼ δὲ κατθανεῖν”.
