    el que se acuesta con perros, se levantará con pulgas.

    joka makaa koirien kanssa, nousee kirppujen kanssa.

    celui qui se couche avec des chiens se lèvera avec des puces.

    מי שישכב עם כלבים, יקום עם פרעושים.

    நாய்களுடன் படுத்துக் கொண்டவன் பிளைகளுடன் எழுந்திருப்பான்.

    కుక్కలతో పడుకున్నవాడు ఈగలతో పైకి లేస్తాడు.

    kẻ nào nằm với chó, sẽ nổi lên với bọ chét.
