ex hostis tuos ungula, o ex hostis tui ungula? from: Veni, O Iesse virgula, ex hostis tuos ungula, de spectu tuos tartari educ et antro barathri. Why is tuos in the accusative, and not genitive, like 'from the hook of your enemies --> ex hostis tui ungula'? Same question for the 3rd line. /

'tuos' is accusative masculine plural, and both 'tuos' are accusative because of 'educ'. So it means 'lead them, your men, out of the grasp of the enemy, lead them...'
