Sunday Sense - Evidence that you can't believe everything on the internet!

"Be patient and you will finally win, for a soft tongue can break hard bones."
Proverbs 28:13 Quotations for Inspiration webpage (overcoming obstacles)
and Bible Quotes

My NIV version says:
"He who conceals his sins does not prosper, but whoever confesses and renounces them finds mercy." Proverbs 28:13

Two different websites have the same quote and reference -- I liked it, so went to double check the chapter and verse, and now I'm puzzled. Anyone got any ideas on the true place the first quote might be found?

The Message bible says:
"You can't whitewash your sins and get by with it; you find mercy by admitting and leaving them."

I just googled "Proverbs 28:13" and came up with the correct verse. When I googled the entire quote, I got the 2nd incorrect site.

Sunday Sense is supposed to be my favorite quotes -- it morphed into fact finding... but hey, it made me open my Bible -- always a good thing :-)

Always up for a challenge, I think I've found it:

Try Proverbs 25:15 - looks like a loose translation...
