Difference between trust and trust in

hello , i’d like to know the difference between TRUST and TRUsT IN… thanks :roll:

Yea, and why do dollars read ‘We trust in God’ (‘In God we trust’) and not ‘We trust God’?


‘Trust’ on its own means have faith in/believe in/have confidence in. ‘Trust in’ takes this a stage further and suggests a deeper belief/commitment usually trusting in larger concepts such as God, your country/ your religion and so on.


Thanks a lot for your very clear explanation, Alan :slight_smile:
By the way, do you happen to remember any other verbs which have similar case? I mean a verb which has a more intensive/stronger meaning when it goes with a preposition. (‘believe’?)
