Ive seen another Ladino proverb, i don't remember exactly how it went,
but "tree" was _arbole'_. Maybe different dialects?
Also i noticed in someone else's response the word "Dios"....i've seen it
twice in Ladino, one of which was a Bible translation in Hebrew
characters, and both times it was "Dio", without the "s".
"Eze-guvdhab wa'hrikh-a tze, / "zhoutzii wa'esh," i eze-mwe."
