[415] τούτῳ: the prominence of this and its repetition two lines below mark the identity of the person chiefly interested. In English, the first clause would be subordinate. “As glory will attend him in the one case, so grief will come upon him in the other case.” Only the second of these clauses has any independent force in the connexion here; 415 f. are simply for contrast. cf. 6.227-229.

κῦδος: is emphatic in itself, and opposed to “πένθος” by the position of each, before the verse-pause.
