Latin Language: Submission before the goddess
Dear Latin Teacher,
I am trying to state correctly in Latin, the phrase: Submission before the Goddess is all that exists.
So far, my best guess is: Obsequium ut Dea est quicumque futurus. Or... Obsequium ut Dea est.
Your little Latin phrase might be translated literally thus: obsequium ante deam est totum
If by submission you mean loyalty, dutifulness, etc., then perhaps pietas
is better than obsequium
, which implies simple obedience. Pietas
has been used to expressed loyalty to God or to the gods from early Roman literature through modern Christianity.Pietas est servire deo et colere deum
. To serve God and to revere God is pietas
To substitute goddess in this Latin phrase would be: Pietas est servire deae et colere deam
Hope this helps, and thanks for asking a Latin teacher.
