Could someone please translate the following quote in to Irish for me?

"Go tell the Spartans, stranger passing by, that here obedient to there laws we lie."

I have tried various translation websites but they all differ in their response and grammar and I am wary of using Google translate being credible.

Greatly appreciated

b’fhéidir:

Téir is inis do na Spartaigh,
a strainséir atá ag imeacht thart,
gur anseo muid ag luí
agus muid umhal dá ndlíthe.

Very poetic, a Labhrás! I like it!

Cad chuige "ag luí" in ionad "inár luí", a Labhrá(i)s?

agus sinn 'nár luí anso.
