I think Mark's suggestion preserves the TWO
JUSTIFICATIONS being contrasted; Moon's translation
seems to be viewing ONE JUSTIFICATION from 'two
different ways.' James is not disputing a
justification by faith (vs 23). (Note only that James
quotes from Gen. 15 in this verse, not Gen. 22)
I tentatively would opt for the implied verb as Mark's
translation has it, but also wonder ...
From a grammatical view, is there any material
difference had MONON preceded the prepositional

now it's acceptable. Languages just change."
