More explanation on the Druni translation:

"Uramún togolovó dafaryávad; (God gave teeth)

Uramún: nominative singular from "urám" [intimate friend] augmentative [-ún]
meaning "Great Friend"  absolutely genderless Creator beyong linguistic
description seen by the Druni simultaneously as Divine Personage AND
non-personal void-potential underlying everything.

togolovó:  accusative plural from "togól" [tooth]

dafaryávad: 3rd person Deific simple past [beyond sing. plural]

"Uramún taenóva dafaryázhad." [God will give bread]

Uramún: as above

taenóva: accusative singular from "táen"  [bread like food]

dafaryázhad: 3rd pers. Deific simple future from "dafárya" [to give].

Miarayáru ú idá séti tá daósan iíd ebruvéna zhirashyázha!
(I hope this will help with the understanding of this proverb!)

Sabutóva ukhése!
