καὶ ἐὰν ταῦτα ποιῆτε κ.τ.λ. Or. 48 (Olymp.) § 58 καὶ ταῦτα ποιοῦντες τά τε δίκαια γνώσεσθε καὶ τὰ συμφέροντα ἡμῖν ἅπασιν, and 43 (Macart.) § 84 καὶ ταῦτα ποιοῦντες τά τε δίκαια ψηφιεῖσθε καὶ τὰ εύορκα καὶ τὰ ὑμῖν αὐτοῖς συμφέροντα. Uhle, i 113.]

ἔσεσθε ἐψηφισμένοι Future perfect expressed by ἔσομαι with the perfect participle. Cf. Or. 4 § 50 ἂν ταῦτ᾽ εἰδῶμεν, καὶ τὰ δέοντ᾽ ἐσόμεθ᾽ ἐγνωκότες καὶ λόγων ματαίων ἀπηλλαγμένοι. Cobet gives a great many examples in p. 321 of his Variae Lectiones.

περιαιρήσεσθε ‘You will rid yourselves of all the villainous artifices of these unprincipled men.’ Kennedy translates ‘you will deprive the swindlers of those artifices,’ &c. But it is more probable that αἰρήσομαι (like λέξομαι, τιμήσομαι &c.) is here passive = αἰρεθήσομαι. The idiom is here the same as in the more familiar ἀφαιρεθῆναί τι.
