ΜΟΛΩΝ ΛΑΒΕ actually means come and take them, Google translate doesn't always translate accurately. King Leonidas I reportedly said it to King Xerxes I at the Battle of Thermopylae when he was told to lay down his weapons and surrender. It has been said many times through out Western history since. It was used on Texas flags during the War of Independence from Mexico and is currently the motto of United States Special Operations Command Central.
