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?

"If God is with us, who can be against us."

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."
