Ephesians 4:26

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 26 Provoked, but not to sin, that the light of day not go down because of your exasperation. [Anger is sin and can cause you to lose the measure of the light of God and day that you have laboriously gained. From the Word of the Lord within: "Do not let the light go down on your anger. Do not be misled; anger must be eliminated to enter the kingdom." Because the translators, schooled by Babylon, don't understand that all anger is sin, this verse is seriously mistranslated in most Bibles to read: "Be angry and do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger;" which incorrectly implies that your anger is not sin unless you hold onto the anger into the night. Because the original Greek can often be interpreted in several ways, the interpretation chosen is greatly influenced by the translators' beliefs; and if the translators have some incorrect beliefs, those incorrect beliefs will cause them to incorrectly translate many scriptures. Although Paul clearly states in verse 31 below: "Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamor, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice;" the translators blithely go on, without a clue to the true gospel, including that the Lord can completely purify person to become like Him.]
