Latin term or phrase: Si Deus quis contra
This is the motto for my husbands family coat of arms. I think the words are if anyone against God but I do not think I have that in the right context. Can you help?

Explanation:
It seems incomplete.

Si Deus pro nobis quis contra nos?
If God is with us, who can be against us?

See this extract:

On the 9th of September, 1791, Casparus Rauck died after having served for 56 and ¼ years as Mayor of Fulda. During this time he was a medical doctor. The coat of arms was given to him by the ruling sovereign in honor of his merits. The motto in Latin says: "Si Deus pro nobis quis contra nos?", which translated into English means: "If God is with us, who can be against us."
