Likewise in other lexica. The headword phrase, in the imperative mode, is presumably quoted from somewhere -- perhaps Isocrates 2.53, where, in I's advice to the young Cypriot dynast Nicocles about surrounding himself with wise advisors, kai\ qera/peue immediately follows (web address 1).
For the idiom cf. pi 1238, pi 1254.
