The confusion in this case is apparently due to the double function of OU
OU DIKAIOUTAI ANQRWPOS EX ERGWN NOMWN.
OU DIKAIOUTAI ANQRWPOS EAN MH DIA PISTEWS IHSOU CRISTOU.
I guess either EX ERGWN NOMWN should have been omitted, or EAN MH should
have been replaced by some more appropriate word (e.g. ALLA).
