λέγων: equiv. to ὅτι ἔλεγες, that you were saying.

οὐδ᾽ ἐκβάλλειν: when two verbs which govern different cases are construed with but one object, it is customary to construe this object with the nearer verb. Cf. below (5).

χρῆταί τε καὶ ἀδικῇ: the co-ordination of the two ideas by τε . . . καί brings into greater prominence the impropriety of thus misapplying otherwise useful skill, than the more usual ἀδίκως χρῆται of the following clause.

ἀλλὰ τῷ ἀδικοῦντι: the μηδὲ ἐξελαύνειν is a result which may or may not follow the ἐγκαλεῖν, according to circumstances. The real opposition is between τῷ διδάξαντι and τῷ ἀδικοῦντι, hence the second is put in the same case as the first, although the acc. would be required by ἐξελαύνειν. Cf. Prot. 327 a πᾶς πάντα ἐδίδασκε καὶ ἐπέπληττε τὸν μὴ καλῶς αὐλοῦντα.
