Proverbs 10:12 (Amplified Bible) Hatred stirs up contentions, but love covers all transgressions.
It is wrong to keep bringing up one another's faults or sins, and it is wrong to be so eager to run and tell other people about one another's sins or hang ups just because you have a disagreement, or because you are offended. If you truly love someone you are to cover them and their nakedness. You are to cover their faults, and even their sins.
Proverbs 17:9 (Amplified Bible) He who covers and forgives an offense seeks love, but he who repeats or harps on a matter separates even close friends. 1 Peter 4:8 (Amplified Bible) Above all things have intense and unfailing love for one another, for love covers a multitude of sins [forgives and [Joseph Thayer, A Greek-English Lexicon.] disregards the offenses of others]. [Prov 10:12 ]
