is the same as
(d) OU DIKAIOUTAI ANQRWPOS EX ERGWN NOMOU EAN MH DIKAIOUTAI DIA PISTEWS
But for me, both (c) and (d) sound different from the usual translation
(b), which is the same as
(e) Man is not righteoused by works of the law
but he is righteoused by faith in Christ.
Logically speaking, (b) is equivalent to
(e) If a person is 'righteoused' as a result of works of the law, then
> a person is 'righteoused' through faith in Christ.

In this case, the protasis is false but the apodosis is true. The reverse of
the condition is true: If a man is not justified by the works of the Law,
then he is justified by faith in Christ. . The apodosis expresses how one is
not justified, while the protasis expresses how one can be justified. This is
a case similar to the use of EI MH, where EAN MH does not suggest an
exception to a rule but an alternative to it. The alternative to being
justified by the works of the Law is by being justified by faith in Christ.
For similar use with EI MH see Matt 12:4 (Mark 2:26; Luke 6:4); Rev 9:4;
