The man said, "The woman you put here with me--she gave me some fruit from the tree, and I ate it."
but no stranger had to spend the night in the street, for my door was always open to the traveler--
Then I acknowledged my sin to you and did not cover up my iniquity. I said, "I will confess my transgressions to the LORD." And you forgave the guilt of my sin.
Whoever conceals their sins does not prosper, but the one who confesses and renounces them finds mercy.
