    Airaos, y no pequis; no se ponga el sol sobre vuestro enojo;

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Ephesians 4:26

    Verse 26. Be ye
    angry, and sin not] orgizesqe, here, is the same as ei men orgizesqe, IF YE be angry, do not sin. We can never suppose that the apostle delivers this as a precept, if we take the words as they stand in our version. Perhaps the sense is, Take heed that ye be not angry, lest ye sin; for it would be very difficult, even for an apostle himself, to be angry and not sin. If we consider anger as implying displeasure simply, then there are a multitude of cases in which a man may be innocently, yea, laudably angry; for he should be displeased with every thing which is not for the glory of God, and the good of mankind. But, in any other sense, I do not see how the words can be safely taken.

    Let not the sun go down upon your wrath] That is: If you do get angry with any one, see that the fire be cast with the utmost speed out of your bosom. Do not go to sleep with any unkind or unbrotherly feeling; anger, continued in, may produce malice and revenge. No temper of this kind can consist with peace of conscience, and the approbation of God's Spirit in the soul.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 26. Be ye angry, and sin not , &c.] There is anger which is not sinful; for anger is fouled in God himself, in Jesus Christ, in the holy angels, and in God's people; and a man may be said to be angry and not sin, when his anger arises from a true zeal for God and religion; when it is kindled not against persons, but sins; when a man is displeased with his own sins, and with the sins of others: with vice and immorality of every kind; with idolatry and idolatrous worship, and with all false doctrine; and also when it is carried on to answer good ends, as the good of those with whom we are angry, the glory of God, and the promoting of the interest of Christ: and there is an anger which is sinful; as when it is without a cause; when it exceeds due bounds; when it is not directed to a good end; when it is productive of bad effects, either in words or actions; and when it is soon raised, or long continues: the Jews have a like distinction of anger; they say f53 , there is an anger and an anger; there is an anger which is blessed above and below, and it is called blessed, as it is said ( Genesis 14:19) and there is an anger which is cursed above and below, as it is said ( Genesis 3:14 49:7) And these two sorts are compared to Ebal and Gerizzim, from the one of which proceeded blessing, and from the other cursing: anger for the most part is not only sinful, but it tends to sin, and issues in it; hence that saying of the Jews, yjjt alw jtrt al , be not angry, and thou wilt not sin f54 : the spring of it is a corrupt heart, it is stirred up by Satan, encouraged by pride, and increased by grievous words and reproachful language: let not the sun go down upon your wrath ; there is an allusion to ( Deuteronomy 24:10,13-15) it seems to be a proverbial expression; and the design of it is to show, that anger should not be continued; that it should not last at furthest more than a day; that when the heat of the day is over, the heat of anger should be over likewise; and that we should not sleep with it, lest it should be cherished and increased upon our pillows; and besides, the time of the going down of the sun, is the time of evening prayer, which may be greatly interrupted and hindered by anger. R. Jonah has an expression or two like to this; let not the indignation of anyone abide upon thee; and let not a night sleep with thee, and anger be against any one: it should be considered, that as God is slow to anger, so he does not retain it for ever; and that to retain anger, is to gratify the devil; wherefore it follows, Ver. 27. Neither give place to the devil .] Or to the accuser, or slanderer; that is, to any adversary, that takes delight in slandering and reproaching the saints; give such no room, nor reason, to calumniate the doctrine and ways of Christ, through an unbecoming conversation, by lying and sinful anger, or by other means; or rather the devil, the great accuser of the brethren is meant; and the Ethiopic version renders it, do not give way to Satan; which is done, when men indulge any lust or corruption; and when they easily fall in with his suggestions and temptations; when they are off of their watch and guard; and when they do not resist, but quietly yield unto him.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 25-28 - Notice the particulars wherewith we should
    adorn our Christia profession. Take heed of every thing contrary to truth. No longe flatter or deceive others. God's people are children who will not lie who dare not lie, who hate and abhor lying. Take heed of anger an ungoverned passions. If there is just occasion to express displeasur at what is wrong, and to reprove, see that it be without sin. We giv place to the devil, when the first motions of sin are not grievous to our souls; when we consent to them; and when we repeat an evil deed This teaches that as sin, if yielded unto, lets in the devil upon us we are to resist it, keeping from all appearance of evil. Idlenes makes thieves. Those who will not work, expose themselves to temptations to steal. Men ought to be industrious, that they may d some good, and that they may be kept from temptation. They must labour not only that they may live honestly, but that they may have to give to the wants of others. What then must we think of those calle Christians, who grow rich by fraud, oppression, and deceitfu practices! Alms, to be accepted of God, must not be gained by unrighteousness and robbery, but by honesty and industry. God hate robbery for burnt-offerings.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    26. Be ye
    angry and sin not (orgizesqe kai mh amartanete). Cited from Psalm iv. 5, after the Septuagint. Hebrew, stand in awe and sin not. Righteous anger is commanded, not merely permitted.

    Wrath (parorgismw) Irritation, exasperation; something not so enduring as ojrgh anger, which denotes a deep-seated sentiment. See on John iii. 36.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    4:26 {Be ye angry and sin not} (orgizesqe kai me hamartanete). Permissive imperative, not a command to be angry. Prohibition against sinning as the peril in anger. Quotation from #Ps 4:4. {Let not the sun go down upon your wrath} (ho helios me epiduetw epi parorgismwi). Danger in settled mood of anger. parorgismos (provocation), from parorgizw, to exasperate to anger, occurs only in LXX and here in N.T.
