can you help me translate the declaration of independence?

first passage: When in the course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

    When in the course of human events

    it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another,

    and to assume among the powers of the earth,

    the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature's God entitle them,

    a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires

    that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
