Am I missing something here? I think that Moon is right to say that MONON
governs/limits EK PISTEWS in this instance, but even if the elements were
to be arranged as OU MONON EK PISTEWS, the OU would STILL be governing the
implicit verb DIKAIOUTAI and the meaning would, I believe, still be the
same, as Alan asserted.
