Didn't know the gospel acclamation originated with THAT verse.

It looks as though much of the world is : Who can I lie to : cheat out of : steal from : how can I please myself today !!! Glory to God in the highest : He has sent peace into the earth through Jesus Christ and He is the Goodwill toward men. Praise God : Notice - Goodwill : It was God 's Good and His will to give us Jesus Christ.

The difference in the King James Version of Luke 2:14 to the Vulgate is worth studying. Wikipedia says it is based on inclusion or omission of a "genitive" vowel at the end of Greek versions of the verse. I have not yet found decisively strong evidence supporting one translation over the other or (alternatively) allowing for both interpretations as would be possible if the original text was not explicit in it's use of language. I would be happy for information explaining the King James interpretation or translation of this verse.

In the Catholic and Luther versions of Luke 2.14, the Angels sing of God's peace directed to men of good will. A minor but significant variation not found in earlier versions of King James. Nich Wahr.
