13 Whoever (A)conceals his transgressions will not prosper,
    but he who (B)confesses and forsakes them will obtain mercy.
14 Blessed is the one who (C)fears the Lord[a] always,
    but whoever (D)hardens his heart will fall into calamity.
15 Like (E)a roaring lion or (F)a charging bear
    is (G)a wicked ruler over a poor people.
