τί γάρ: “well, then,” used in lively transition. Less animated is the τί δέ in 4.

τῶν πλησίον δεῖται: “is borrowing” from his neighbors. For δέομαι with the gen. alone instead of gen. of pers. and acc. of thing, see Kr. Spr. 47. 16. 7. The ellipsis is common in Eng., e.g., ‘Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away.’

μέντοι: vero.
