CH8 SA13

Is my translation right? English as follows: The glory in the highest god and peace of good will in the land are to human beings. I can't understand the sentence at all, because of no verb here!

Please don't write in a huge font. We can read the normal font just fine. ^^;

To anyone who was wondering: the original sentence was, "Glōria in altissimīs Deō et in terrā pāx hominibus bonae voluntātis."

It means, "Glory to God in the highest, and peace on earth (lit. 'on earth peace') to men of good will."

Does it make sense now?

If you can't read the normal font, you need to adjust the font size in your browser or use its zoom function. That's what they're there for.

Thanks! I know the word "Deo" and "homonibus" is dative not ablaive1
