"Be angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath" - Eph. 4:26

I think this is also in the Old Testament--the Psalms or Proverbs, I think--though I am unable to locate it. Does anyone know where in the Old Testament it says to "be angry, and sin not"?

That's it, thanks!  For some reason it's Ps. 4:5 in the new OSB, I wonder why the verse shift? I guess the reason that I couldn't find it has to do with a difference between the Hebrew and Septuagint, as it's in the OSB, but in the KJV it says instead: "Stand in awe, and sin not".

I was looking over an Oriental reference and found a referemce by The Psuedo-Clementine, from a manuscript titled RECOGNITION. It appears to get at least a few things right about this topic under the subheading HOLY ANGER.

For this is the righteous and necessary anger, by which every
one is indignant with himself, and accuses himself for those things
which he has erred and done amiss;
and by this indignation a certain fire is kindled in us, which, applied
as it were to a barren field, consumes and burns up the roots of
vile pleasure, and renders the soil of the heart more fertile for the
good seed of the word of God.

And I think that you have sufficiently worthy causes of anger,
from which that most righteous fire may be kindled, if you consider
into what errors the evil of ignorance has drawn you, and how it has
caused you to fall and rush headlong into sin, from what good things
it has withdrawn you, and into what evils it has driven you,
and, what is of more importance than all the rest, how it has
made you liable to eternal punishment in the world to come.

Recogn. 6:3.

In reference to the New Testament teaching of righteous indignation.

Forgive, John

HIS Judgment Cometh, And That Right Soon! Mark 13:35

If any man be ignorant, let him alone be ignorant (at his own peril). 1 Cor. 14:38

Let us all hope to be found a faithful, loving bond-slave of Christ on the soon approaching Last Day.

The shift in numbering has to do with the LXX's inclusion of the introductory verses (that are usually placed above the "first verse" of the psalm) in the numbering (i.e. "A Psalm of David").
