[218] “ὅς κε κτλ”.: i.e. if any one. “Whoever obeys the gods is himself heard by them.” cf. “ἐάν τις θεοσεβὴς καὶ τὸ θέλημα αὐτοῦ ποιῇ, τούτου ἀκούει” (sc. “δ θεός”) St. John ix. 31.

μάλα: surely, readily.

τέ: for its use in marking the reciprocity of the two clauses, cf. § 3 o; see on v. 82.

ἔκλυον: gnomic aor. G. 205; H. 840.

αὐτοῦ: himself. The prominence given to the obj. of the verb which is also the subj. of the previous clause, makes prominent the identity of the two, and contrasts the man with “θεοῖς”.
