Latin question - Neca eos omnes. Deus suos agnoset.

Said on the Albigensian Crusade, Kill them all, God will know his own.

If I want to put a proper name instead of God do I just substitute the name for God, no special suffix needed?

e.g. Neca eos omnes. Dave suos agnoset.

Yes, since deus is in nominative case in this sentence.

I think it should be "agnoscet", not "agnoset" though.
