  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is proverbs 169. All right. The proverb today

  • is " if you lie down with dogs you get up with fleas." Okay. Let's take a look at the

  • note here. You might also possibly hear this proverb stated as if you lie down

  • with dogs you wake up with fleas or if you lie down with dogs you'll come up

  • with fleas. So there's about three different ways that you could possibly

  • hear this phrase used. Okay. Let's continue. Let's look at the note here. The

  • proverb basically means if you hang out or associate with people who have a bad

  • character or a bad reputation eventually your reputation will be harmed or may

  • begin to pay or you may begin to pick up some of these bad traits if you'll hang

  • out with these people that have bad traits long enough. So it could go both ways.

  • Let's continue. They say this proverb was first recorded

  • in English in 1573 by James Sanford but anybody he didn't really coin it. He was

  • or however he was a translator of Latin texts. So originally this goes all the

  • way back to the Roman Empire. In Latin it read as "qui cum canibus comcum bunt

  • cum publicubus surgent " Okay. I remember some Latin I know the cui is like

  • who with dogs I know I got that part.The rest gets a little confusing though with

  • and this is probably the fleas over here. But anyway that's the idea. So which is

  • translated as they who lie with dogs will rise with fleas. So it really does

  • come originally from the Roman Empire. All right. And we have a couple of

  • examples here the way we might hear it used today.

  • All right. Here's number one. If you hang out with a bad crowd. Yeah. We often say

  • it especially to young people or teenagers. If they hang out

  • with you know a group of kids that you know, do bad things. Maybe take drugs or

  • shoplift or something like that. You are going to end up with a bad reputation.

  • Remember if you lie down with dogs you will get up with fleas. Okay. Good or

  • number two here. Number two is an a/b part . A says just because I associate

  • with them does not make me the same . And B might say. yeah, I'm just warning

  • you to be careful Other people will assume you are the

  • same. They think if you lie down with dogs you will get up with fleas. Okay.

  • Anyway that's the way you may hear it used. Okay. Anyway, I hope you got it. I hope it

  • was clear. I hope it was informative . Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
