50. διατελοῦντα ἀγαθόν explains ἀγαθόν more precisely: cf. 344Bγενόμενον δὲ διαμένειν ἐν ταύτῃ τῇ ἕξει καὶ εἶναι ἄνδρα ἀγαθόν. διατελεῖν without a participle seems not to be elsewhere found in Plato, though it occurs in Thucydides and others.

52. ἐπὶ πλεῖστον: ‘diutissime, ut ἐπὶ πολύ saepe significat diu’. καί is ‘also’ not ‘and’, and balances οὓς ἂν οἱ θεοὶ φιλῶσιν: οἱ θεοφιλεῖς are also ἄριστοι.
