    There are many ways of saying this in Tagalog, but to match the succinct nature of this adage, I would suggest:

    Magtiwala at magsuri. (Trust and investigate -- as usually happens, there is rarely a direct translation between languages and in the case of a very common phrase, translating the style and thought are equally important).
