EAN MH is usually taken to mean "unless". I wonder if this is the
case with Gal 2:16.
OU DIKAIOUTAI ANQRWPOS EX ERGWN NOMOU EAN MH DIA PISTEWS IHSOU CRISTOU.
(a) Man is not righteoused out of works of the law unless through faith
Rendered this way, it seems to imply that man is righteoused out of
works of the law as long as through faith in Christ.
This rendering deviates from the usual translation:
(b) Man is not righteoused by works of the law but by faith in Christ.
Why (b), not (a)?
