κιχήσεται with gen., on the analogy of “τυγχάνειν”. Elsewhere “κιχάνω” always governs acc. We might take “ἐμψύχου … μου” (sc. “ὄντος”, cp. 83) καὶ κατορθοῦντος as gen. absol., but this is less probable. κατορθοῦντος intrans., “φρένα” acc. of respect: cp. “ἐξ ὀρθῆς φρενός,” O. T. 528. The intrans. “κατορθόω” usu. =“"to succeed"” ( Thuc. 6.12 “ἢ κατορθώσαντας,...ἢ πταίσαντας”), but also “"to be right or correct,"” as Plat. Legg. 654C “ὃς ἂν τῇ μὲν φωνῇ καὶ τῷ σώματι μὴ πάνυ δυνατὸς ᾖ κατορθοῦν” (in song and dance). The transitive “κατορθόω”=“"to bring anything to a successful end"” (though, in such cases, the acc. might often be one of respect, and the verb intrans.), or “"to make one successful"” (El. 416).
