ἐκ θεῶν: from the company of gods.

ἐπαίνου ἑαυτῆς: praise of yourself. For the use of the third pers. refl. instead of the second, see G. 995; H. 686 a. For the thought, cf. “Themistoclem dixisse aiunt, cum ex eo quaereretur quod acroama aut cuius vocem libentissime audiret: Eius, a quo sua virtus optime praedicareturCic. pro Arch. 9. 32.

εὖ φρονῶν: in his senses.

θιάσου: properly an assemblage of worshipers: here scornfully applied to the followers of Κακία.

οἳ νέοι: as if preceded by θιασωτῶν, instead of θιάσου, a const. κατὰ σύνεσιν. So αἱ πόλεις, παύσοντες in ii. 2. 3.

λιπαροὶ τρεφόμενοι: for the pred. adj. used in adverbial sense, see H. 619.

ἀποθέμενοι: laying up. Cf. with this description Shakspeare's Seven Ages of Man in As You Like It, and the imagery of Ecclesiastes xii.
