American Standard Version
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 [a]mischief.
15 As a roaring lion, and a ranging bear,
So is a wicked ruler over a poor people.
- Proverbs 28:14 Or, calamity
New International Version
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.
