πᾶςχρόνος, ‘all time’ to come: cp. Isocr. or. 1 § 11ἐπιλίποι δ᾽ ἂν ἡμᾶς πᾶς χρόνος, εἰ πάσας τὰς ἐκείνου πράξεις καταριθμησαίμεθα”. In Pind. P. 1. 46 πᾶς χρόνος” has a like sense. παρὼν, ‘when present,’ i.e., ‘as it comes.’ There can be no moment at which she might not fitly make her just complaints. δίκᾳ goes with ἐννέπειν, not with πρέποι.

μόλις γὰρ κ.τ.λ.: i.e., having waited so long for freedom of utterance, she should not now be required to keep silence.— ἔσχον, ‘have obtained’: cp. 1176 n.
