οὐ τιμωροῦντες (1) τιμωρεῖν τινά τινι, to punish A for B's satisfaction: (2) τιμωρεῖσθαί τινά τινι, to revenge oneself on A for wronging B. The accus. is more often omitted with τιμωρεῖν, the dat. with τιμωρεῖσθαι.

τοῖς ἐπιτιμίοις A word of poetical cast, like many which the older prose writers used: see Attic Orators, I. 20. Soph. El. 1382, τἀπιτίμια τῆς δυσσεβείας. Lycurg. In Leocr. § 4, τὰ ἐκ τῶν νόμων ἐπιτίμια.

καὶ τοῦ ὑμετέρου ἁμαρτ. ὑπαίτιοι ‘responsible for your offence also’. ὑπαίτιος is not ‘accessory’, like μεταίτιος or παραίτιος opposed to παναίτιος, but ‘under’, ‘liable to, αἰτία’.
