    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.
