Proverbs 28:13-15 New English Translation (NET Bible)
13 The one who covers his transgressions will not prosper,
but whoever confesses them and forsakes them will find mercy.
14 Blessed is the one who is always cautious,
but whoever hardens his heart will fall into evil.
15 Like a roaring lion or a roving bear,
so is a wicked ruler over a poor people.
