copy content from another website

If I copy the content from any website and put it on my website with that website source URL. Will it get a google penalty?

Normally I suggest you create original content, but from the way you phrased your question there is a right way to use copied content and it's permissible provided you follow a few simple rules.

Example:

Quoting "entegracalgary"

"If I copy the content from any website and put it on my website with that website source URL. Will it get a google penalty?"  ( question asked on Seochat.io )

Put the information you are coping in "Quotation Marks"  see above example...

Put the source in parentheses, ()   see above example...

There is also the fair use laws you may need to consider. Here are a few links to help you out.

Fair Use concerning copyright

Fair use concerning plagiarism

Edited to add

As for Google levying a penalty ... If you follow the rules above probably not, 99.99 % sure .  I say probably because I have no idea of what your goals are.

If your site is going to consist of 90% + of copied content then you will not rank very well but not because of a penalty, but because how search algo's work. 

Meaning I can go elsewhere and get the original source. which will be more in depth coverage on the topic.  Google also knows this and will go there as well.   

Good advice?

Google won't admit copy contents.

That is not advisable as google will detect it and your content will not receive much views as per google's algorithm..

Check out Press Release Power if you need help in writing original content.
