13 Whoever conceals their sins does not prosper, but the one who confesses and renounces them finds mercy.

Matthew Henry's Commentary on Proverbs 28:13

Commentary on Proverbs 28:13

(Read Proverbs 28:13)

It is folly to indulge sin, and excuse it. He who covers his sins, shall not have any true peace. He who humbly confesses his sins, with true repentance and faith, shall find mercy from God. The Son of God is our great atonement. Under a deep sense of our guilt and danger, we may claim salvation from that mercy which reigns through righteousness unto eternal life, by Jesus Christ our Lord.
