1 Peter 4:8; Nehemiah 4:5; Psalm 32:1; Psalm 85:2; Proverbs 10:12

Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since qlove covers a multitude of sins.

vDo not cover their guilt, and let not their sin be blotted out from your sight, for they have provoked you to anger in the presence of the builders.

Blessed Are the Forgiven

A Maskil1 of David.

32  jBlessed is the one whose ktransgression is forgiven,

whose sin is covered.

You qforgave the iniquity of your people;

you qcovered all their sin. Selah

12  Hatred stirs up strife,

but wlove covers all offenses.
