NET © Notes

tn The primary verb of v. 8 is a participle (“having”) but it continues the sense of command from v. 7.

tn Or “constant.”

sn The statement of v. 8b, love covers a multitude of sins, is proverbial: It is quoted from Prov 10:12 (cf. Jas 5:20). It speaks of the forbearance that comes with love: Christian love is patient and forgiving toward the offenses of a fellow Christian (Matt 18:21-22; 1 Cor 13:4-7).
