Quoting Luke 2:14 from the Welsh Bible:

Old version:

Ar y ddaear tangnefedd i ddynion ewyllys da.

[On the earth peace to men of will good.]

New (1988) version:

Ar y ddaear tangnefedd ymhlith dynion sydd wrth ei fodd.

[On the earth peace amongst men that are in his favour.]

(I prefer the old version.)
