And it shall be, when he shall be guilty in one of these things, that he shall confess that he has sinned in that thing:
When I kept silence, my bones waxed old through my roaring all the day long.
I acknowledge my sin unto you, and mine iniquity have I not hid. I said, I will confess my transgressions unto the LORD; and you forgave the iniquity of my sin. Selah.
He that covers his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesses and forsakes them shall have mercy.
Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that all of you may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.
Repent all of you therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord.
Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, unto which you are also called, and have professed a good profession before many witnesses.
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:
For with the heart man believes unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
We have sinned, and have committed iniquity, and have done wickedly, and have rebelled, even by departing from your precepts and from your judgments:
Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, all of you sinners; and purify your hearts, all of you double minded.
That if you shall confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in yours heart that God has raised him from the dead, you shall be saved.
