Greek translation:Μή πεποίθατε επ΄ανθρώπου.
Explanation:
The truth is, that I couldn't find the sentence "trust no man" in any bible as it is, but while searching for it I found that it has to be a part of psalm 146:3
"Put not your trust in princes, [nor] in the son of man, in whom [there is] no help."
(this one I took from Webster's Bible, but it can also be found in another 10 bibles - at the address below)

The whole greek sentence in the Bible I found at home (Bibliki etairia 1955)of psalm 146:3 goes like this:
"Mi pepoithate ep'arxontas, epi uion anthropou, ek tou opoiou den einai sotiria"
"Μή πεποίθατε επ΄άρχοντας, Επί υιόν ανθρώπου, εκ του οποίου δέν ειναι σωτηρία."
(Mention that you have to use the ancient greek accents, which are not used in modern greek any more - that's why I don't have them on my keyboard)

I hope that this helps!
