Arizona State Motto
Adopted in 1864.
Ditat Deus has been translated as: "God Enriches." The motto has remains unchanged since its introduction by Richard Cunningham McCormick in 1864. The motto is an expression, most likely biblical in origin, of a very deep religious sentiment.

Arizona's motto, Ditat Deus, meaning God enriches, is in all probability derived from Genesis 14:23 of the Latin Vulgate Version of the Bible.
