Another 2 Clement gem

From: Bart Ehrman (

   In 2 Clement 10, after "for if we are eager to do good, peace will
pursue us," comes a pectuliar line (v. 3): dia tauthn gar thn aitian ouk
estin heurein anthrwpon, hoitines paragousi phobous anthrwpinous,
prohirhmenoi mallon thn enthade apolausin h thn mellousan epaggelian.

   Can anyone make sense of this without emending the text?

   Can anyone who thinks the text needs to be emended suggest something
