: Ibis, redibis, non morieris in bello.
: (Literal translation):
: Ibis = You will go
: Redibis = you will return
: non = not
: morieris = you will die
: in bello = in war.

: Now ladies and gents, place your commas...

: Where obviously:
: redibis non = you won't come back
: but
: non morieris = you won't die

: Sorry for the delay + greetings to all.

Glad we got all that cleared up.
