Proverbs 28:13-15 American Standard Version (ASV)
13 He that covereth his transgressions shall not prosper;
But whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall obtain mercy.
14 Happy is the man that feareth alway;
But he that hardeneth his heart shall fall into mischief.
15 As a roaring lion, and a ranging bear,
So is a wicked ruler over a poor people.
Proverbs 28:13-15 New International Version (NIV)
13 Whoever conceals their sins does not prosper,
but the one who confesses and renounces them finds mercy.
14 Blessed is the one who always trembles before God,
but whoever hardens their heart falls into trouble.
15 Like a roaring lion or a charging bear
is a wicked ruler over a helpless people.
