οὐ μὰ Δἴ, ἀλλ᾽ ἀσθενεῖ is the reply of a second imaginary Athenian. Each is seeking an excuse for putting off action.

τὶ πάθῃ, euphemistically for ἀποθάνῃ, as commonly.

οὐδὲ ... οὖτος , ‘not the present Philip either’ (any more than his possible successor).

παρά, in a causal sense, ‘by reason of’ (vulgarly ‘along of’), as in Dem. 18. 232 παρὰ τοῦτο γέγονεν τὰ τῶν Ἑλλήνων.
