John 7:51

Doth our law judge a man? (mh o nomov hmwn krinei ton antrwpon;).
Negative answer expected and "the man," not "a man." These exponents of the law (verse 49) were really violating the law of criminal procedure (Exodus 23:1; Deuteronomy 1:16). Probably Nicodemus knew that his protest was useless, but he could at least show his colours and score the point of justice in Christ's behalf.

Except it first hear from himself (ean mh akoushi prwton par' autou).
Third-class negative condition with ean mh and first aorist active subjunctive of akouw. That is common justice in all law, to hear a man's side of the case ("from him," par' autou).

And know what he doeth (kai gnwi ti poiei).
Continuation of the same condition with second aorist active subjunctive of ginwskw with indirect question and present active indicative (ti poiei). There was no legal answer to the point of Nicodemus.
