ἂν σωφρονῇς: if you are wise.

μὴ οὐκ ἐθελήσωσιν: in Attic, the use of μὴ οὐ with the subjv. is generally confined to clauses after verbs of fearing. See GMT. 305, 306; H. 1033.

εἶτα: and then, without καί, as often. Cf. i.2.1; iv. 5. 3, and καὶ αὐτοὶ πολλάκις ἐμὲ μιμοῦνται, εἶτα ἐπιχειροῦσιν ἄλλους ἐξετάζειν Plato Apol. 23C.

ἐν ἐρημίᾳ φίλων: without ὤν. So after ὁρᾶν, cf. ἐν εὐδίᾳ (security) γὰρ ὁρῶ ὑμᾶς An. v.8.19; and after καταλαμβάνειν, cf. κατελαμβάνομεν τοὺς μὲν ἡμετέρους ἐν φόβῳ Demosthenes de Cor. § 211.

γονεῖς: this form of the acc. pl. of nouns in -εύς is not rare in Xenophon. Cf. ἱππεῖς iii. 5. 19, γναφεῖς, σκυτεῖς, χαλκεῖς iii. 7. 6, δρομεῖς iii. 10. 6.
