εὔχετο πρὸς τοὺς θεούς: εὔχεσθαι πρός τινα is usual when an inf. follows. Kr. Spr. 48. 7. 14. Cf. Ξέρξης εὔχετο πρὸς τὸν ἥλιον Hdt. vii. 54.

ὡς εἰδότας: see on ὡς προσημαίνοντος i. 1. 4. τοὺς θεούς is purposely repeated. For the thought, cf. Socrates, inquit, nihil ultra petendum a diis immortalibus arbitrabatur, quam quid unicuique esset utile, nos autem id plerumque votis expetere, quod non impetrasse melius foret Valer. Max. vii. 2.

εἰ εὔχοιντο: for the ellipsis of the apod., see G. 1420; H. 905 a, 3.

ὅπως ἀποβήσοιτο: depends on ἀδήλων (sc. ὄντων). See on i. 1. 6.
