This single character is often part of other words with similar meanings. Alone, this character can mean to believe, truth, faith, fidelity, sincerity, trust and confidence in Chinese, old Korean Hanja and Japanese Kanji.
It is one of the five basic tenets of Confucius.
In Chinese, it sometimes has the secondary meaning of a letter (as in the mail) depending on context, but it will not be read that way when seen on a wall scroll.
This is a way to express, "Trust in God" in Japanese.
The first character is "God".
The second character is a particle that links the ideas here.
The last three characters are a word that means, "to believe", "to believe in", "to place trust in", "to confide in", "to have faith in".
Basically, this is the Japanese phrase for, "Have faith in God", "Believe in God", or "Trust in God".
This is the simplest way to express, "Trust in God" in Japanese.
The first character means God, deity, divinity, or spirit (in this case, it will be read as God).
The second character is a particle that links the ideas.
The last two characters mean faith, belief, or creed, in religious context.
This means firm belief, faith, persuasion, conviction, and sometimes religion or creed in Chinese, Japanese Kanji and old Korean Hanja.
This word clearly fits religious connotation of the English word "devotion".
Japanese people will often translate this as "faith in God" or "trust in God".
It should be noted that this word is a little strange alone on a wall scroll.
While this can be pronounced in Japanese, it's not a great selection for a wall scroll if your audience is Japanese.
This is the more religious form of "faith". It has this same meaning in Chinese, Korean Hanja and Japanese Kanji. This is often used to refer to a person of faith or a religious person. Can be directly translated as "firm belief", "creed", "conviction" or simply as "religious" depending on context.
Some will also use this to mean "trust in God" in Japanese (though the term for God is not actually in this title).
This means exactly what the title suggests. The first two characters mean "trust" or "believe" and the second two mean "God" (as in the God of Abraham and the God of Zion).
This is also how the American phrase "In God We Trust" as seen on U.S. Currency would be translated into Chinese. It would also be correct to say that this means "Believe in God", though in this arrangement/context, one would be more likely to interpret it as "trust".
This is a philosophical poem/quote from Indian Poet and Philosopher, Rabindranath Tagore.
Rabindranath Tagore, 1915
This quote is not sourced, and therefore several variations exist in English. Some suggest the original was in the Bengali language.
This of course is the Chinese translation which has the meaning of, "Faith is the bird that feels the light and sings when the dawn is still dark".
This means "Trust in God", "Faith in God", "Rely upon God" and/or "Believe in God".
The first two characters mean everyone or anyone, but change to "no one" with the addition of a negative verb.
The third through fifth characters express the idea of to believe, to believe in, to place trust in, to confide in, or to have faith in.
The last character makes the sentence negative (without the last character, this would mean "trust everyone", with that last character it's "trust no one").
This is as close as you can get to the phrase "trust no man" in Japanese, though no gender is specified.
This is the Chinese way to say believe.
This specifically means to be convinced that something is true or to accept something as true or real.
This can also be translated as "convinced of", "have trust in", "have faith in"
This is another character that expresses the idea of honesty. It can also mean truth, faith, believe in, fidelity, sincerity, trust and/or confidence.
Some have included this in the list for the Bushido, although "makoto" is probably more common/popular.
Note: In some context, this character can mean letter; news or envoy. However, alone, it will generally be read with the honesty-meaning.

This character means truth, faith, fidelity, sincerity, trust and/or confidence.

This is also a virtue of the Samurai Warrior

Professional calligraphers are getting to be hard to find these days.
Instead of drawing characters by hand, the new generation in China merely type roman letters into their computer keyboards and pick the character that they want from a list that pops up.
There is some fear that true Chinese calligraphy may become a lost art in the coming years. Many art institutes in China are now promoting calligraphy programs in hopes of keeping this unique form of art alive.
Even with the teachings of a top-ranked calligrapher in China, my calligraphy will never be good enough to sell. I will leave that to the experts.
The same calligrapher who gave me those lessons also attracted a crowd of thousands and a TV crew as he created characters over 6-feet high. He happens to be ranked as one of the top 100 calligraphers in all of China. He is also one of very few that would actually attempt such a feat.
