Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Psalms 4:5


4:5 Offer - Unto God, that he may be reconciled to you. Righteousness - Righteous sacrifices; which requires that the persons offering them be righteous and do righteous things, and offer them with an honest mind, with faith and true repentance. Without which, he intimates, that all their sacrifices were of no esteem with God, and would be wholly unprofitable to them.

    Another translation: Be agitated, but do not sin.Have your say in your heart, upon your bed, and keep silent

    So, it is a reminder that there are times to be upset or agitated. These are not bad feelings in themselves. However, we need to exercise self control. We can be angry, but we are warned to not sin. Don't turn that anger into violence. Vs. 5 tells us to trust in God to make things right.
