    Hello, I am questioning the translation of "go with God" into Latin. Would one say, "Cum Deo ite?"

    English but my first language was German
    If you are talking to a group. If you are talking to only one person, you can avoid the awkward "I cum Deo" by using the same subterfuge as the Vulgate and saying "vade cum Deo".

    Hmmm, but that construction is vulgar latin, not the sort of educated Latin that well-studied Romans would use, right?
