He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

28:13 covereth his sins. That is, rationalizing his sin in order to avoid confessing it, where confession involves naming the particular sin.

28:13 forsaketh. “Forsaking” a sin includes not only giving it up but also actually “forgetting” it, so there is no longer even the desire for it.
