II. 40 § 3, διαφερόντως γὰρ δὴ καὶ τόδε ἔχομεν ὥστε τολμᾶν τε οἱ αὐτοὶ μάλιστα, καὶ περὶ ὧν ἐπιχειρήσομεν, ἐκλογίζεσθαι: [acc., as to which thing, ‘whereas’] τοῖς ἄλλοις ἀμαθία μὲν θράσος λογισμὸς δὲ ὄκνον φέρει.

προχειρίζεσθε ‘elect’, lit. ‘make ready for yourselves’: cp. [Dem.] In Aristog. I. § 13, ὁρῶν ὑμᾶς κατατάττοντάς με (designating) καὶ προχειριζομένους ἐπὶ τὴν τούτου κατηγορίαν.
