OU MONON EK PISTEWS makes OU negate MONON
so that the rendering would be:
and (justified) not only by faith.
This in fact conveys the same as Mark's rendering:
and not only (justified) by faith.
The above analysis seems to imply that the rendering of
the original as "and not (justified) only by faith"
the intended meaning.
