δῆλον ὅτι: this expression, as well as οἶδ᾽ ὅτι, is often added to a clause or inserted in it with the force of an adv., evidently, certainly. See H. 1049, 1 a.

δύναται: signifies; cf. Crat. 429 d ἆρα ὅτι ψευδῆ λέγειν τὸ παράπαν οὐκ ἔστιν, ἆρα τοῦτό σοι δύναται λόγος; Euthyd. 286 c τοῦτο γὰρ δύναται λόγος.—

αὐτό σε διδάξει: the matter itself will teach you. αὐτό is not to be referred to κολάζειν. Cf. the standing formulae αὐτὸ δείξει (Hipp. Ma. 288 b εἰ δ᾽ ἐπιχειρήσας ἔσται καταγέλαστος, αὐτὸ δείξει), αὐτὸ δηλώσει (329 b, Critias 108 c τοῦτο μὲν οὖν οἷόν ἐστιν, αὐτό σοι τάχα δηλώσει), and passages like Soph. Frag. 352 ταχὺ δ̓ αὐτὸ δείξει τοὖργον, ὡς ἐγώ, σαφῶς.—

οἵ γε ἄνθρωποι: not necessarily all men, but all excepting the class referred to below, ὅστις μὴ ὥσπερ θηρίον κτἑ.

τοὺς ἀδικοῦντας, ὅτι ἠδίκησεν: for the change to the sing., see on 319 d.

πρὸς τούτῳ ἔχων: equiv. to τούτῳ προσέχων.
