“Whoever hides their sins will not be successful, but whoever confesses their sins and stops doing wrong will receive mercy.” – Proverbs 28:13, Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

“If you hide your sins, you will not succeed. If you confess and ·reject [abandon] them, you will receive ·mercy [compassion].” – Proverbs 28:13, Expanded Bible (EXB)

“If you cover up your sin you’ll never do well. But if you confess your sins and forsake them, you will be kissed by mercy.” – Proverbs 28:13, The Passion Translation (TPT)
