Proverbs 28:13
Jerry Vines

There are two words I want you to circle in this verse of Scripture--
covereth and confesseth. He that covereth his sin shall not
prosper. But whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have

When the Lord Jesus came, the angel said to Joseph about Jesus
and thou shall call his name Jesus, for he shall save his people
from their sins. Jesus is the Savior which means Jesus came into
