If you can take a closer look at Proverbs chapter 17 from verse 8 to 10, and take a bible study you will understand verse 9 better which talks more about how love prospers when fault is forgiven:
…8 A bribe is a charm to its giver; wherever he turns, he succeeds. 9 Whoever conceals an offense promotes love, but he who brings it up separates friends. 10 A rebuke cuts into a man of discernment deeper than a hundred lashes cut into a fool.…
The moral lesson of this Bible verse is:
Whoever would foster love covers over an offense, but whoever repeats the matter separates close friends.
