    I have a clip that's 40ish seconds long. At 23 seconds I want the video to "pause" for 4 seconds then continue playing. How do I achieve this?

    Put in a gap clip (formerly known as "slug") of four seconds.
    Ripplestraining has a short explanation on what it is in their free video.

    Sorry but you all seem to be making this harder then it is.
    There is a very simple way of doing this.

    Find the Frame and press "Shift H" or choose "hold" form the timing menu.. (see screen shot)
    Then adjust the hold frame length.
    Job Done.
