New International Version
"In your anger do not sin": Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry,

New Living Translation
And "don't sin by letting anger control you." Don't let the sun go down while you are still angry,

English Standard Version
Be angry and do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger,

New American Standard Bible
BE ANGRY, AND yet DO NOT SIN; do not let the sun go down on your anger,

King James Bible
Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:

 

Human anger may often be sinful, both in origin and expression, but divine anger is always righteous anger. Human jealousy is most often a vice, rather than a virtue, but when God is jealous it is a righteous jealousy.

Because anger and jealousy are frequently attributed to God in the Bible, we must agree that not all anger and jealousy are evil. Pressing the matter further, if we are to imitate God, then there must be times when we should be angry.

Our text in Ephesians 4:27-28 is about righteous anger. In this lesson, we will seek to learn the difference between righteous and unrighteous anger, and how it is that we can express righteous anger in a way that brings glory to God.
