Is it possible syntacticly that the clause KAV hAMARTIAS H PEPOIHKWS, AFEQHSETAI AUTW. could be translated EVEN IF HE SINS, IT SHALL BE REMOVED FROM HIM. where the term AFEQHSETAI is translated with reference to the sickness as oppose to sins. According to Louw & Nida (15.48) AFEQHSETAI can mean to leave or depart from. In Mark 1:31 this word is used in connection with sickness and I was wondering based on the context of James 5 if the grammar would support such a translation.
