  • I don't think a downvote here is appropriate. Bob Marley's quote is actually a perfect translation.

The printed phrase is "Хорошо! Всё будет хорошо!". It means "Okay! It will be okay!". Probably, this phrase is a quotation from lyrics of the famous Ukrainian songer Andrey Danilko. He has an eponymous song.

  • @GamerGuy, could you be more specific? I wrote the meaning of the printed text. What's unclear to you?

  • I kind of wonder, who was the poet that wrote this song lyrics. Danilko does not appear as bard to me.

While there are several ways to use the word (e.g. good, well, OK). Once you separate each word it'd read:

"Хорошо! Всё будет хорошо!"

reads:

"Good! Everything will be good!"

However a more colloquial English equivalent example would be:

Well! All is well!

Also, there's a popular Russian song with that title by ВЕРКА СЕРДЮЧКА - ВСЕ БУДЕТ ХОРОШО.

  • I wonder if this song would be correctly said as Russian or Russian-language Ukrainian one. It is not folklore, it have a known writer and a known performer.

  • Possibly related, but there is no "будет", just "всё хорошо": youtube.com/watch?v=H-uLtUqSBck
