1 Corinthians 2:15
ο δε πνευματικος ανακρινει μεν παντα  
αυτος δε υπ ουδενος ανακρινεται
hO DE PNEUMATIKOS ANAKRINEI MEN PANTA AUTOS DE HUP OUDENOS ANAKRINETAI

My translation so far is:

Sure, The Spiritual-One always-analyzes all-things. He-Himself is- 
never-analyzed by anybody.

My question is:

Why does the "MEN" come after a verb? Usually the "MEN" is written at  
the beginning of the clause or after a noun that it is pointing to,  
but in this sentence it is following a verb which isn't even a  
particle or infinitive O_o

I could not find any explanation of what happens when MEN follows a  
verb at the end of a clause.
