Italian to English translations [PRO] Art/Literary
Italian term or phrase:E successa l'ira di Dio
I need to translate this sentence. It is a from a short passage in a novel. Italian to English please.
Explanation: This English rendering is consistent with the flavor of the language in the version of the Bible commissioned by King James I of England. (The "wrath of God" is an all-too-common phrase in the Bible...) An alternative translation, slightly looser, which also appears in the Bible, would be "And the wrath of God came upon them," as suggested above.
