Dear Karl,

>The context indicates that a man should be 
>looking at his wife only, not at other women, 
>which should “be dispersed from his eyes”. My 
>reading keeps the grammar as standard instead of 
>changing to a grammatically non-standard 
>question and fits the context. Is there any 
>grammatical point that I overlook?

HH: Well, you haven't revised your translation 
since I pointed out that the verb is not in the 
second person imperative. If you do that, then 
perhaps we can go on.
