"Nothing without the Deity" (Nil sine Numine)

The Latin phrase Nil sine Numine is commonly translated as "Nothing without Providence," but it was specifically stated in a government committee report that the original designers of the state seal (which includes the phrase Nil sine Numine) intended the translation to be "Nothing without the Deity."

Numine is Latin (meaning any divinity, god or goddess); God is a purely anglo-saxon word
