Re: Luke 2:14: en uyistois qew, en anqrwpois eudokias

OK, I thought I could parse this, and then someone pointed out that UYISTOIS
is plural. Why plural?

Luke 2:14 (GNT) doxa en uyistois qew kai epi ghs eirhnh en anqrwpois eudokias.

Nothing seems to agree with it. DOXA is singular. QEW is singular. GHS is
singular. ANQRWPOIS is plural, but masculine. And this is Luke, who is
supposed to write good Greek.

Any hints?
