Proverbs 28:13 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

13 Those who conceal their sins do not prosper,
    but those who confess and forsake them obtain mercy.[a]

Footnotes:

  1. 28:13 Concealing the faults of another is a good thing in Proverbs (17:9), but concealing one’s own sins is not. Ps 32:1–5 expresses the anguish caused by concealing one’s sins rather than bringing them to light so they can be healed by God.
