By the breath
Their peaceful dwelling places will be laid waste
The anger of the Lord burned against them, and he departed.
For very soon my fury
So the anger of the Lord was kindled that day, and he swore,
The Lord is compassionate and merciful; he is patient
The Lord is merciful and compassionate; he is patient
I will angrily seek vengeance on the nations that do not obey me.”
You furiously stomp on the earth, you angrily trample down the nations.
You withdrew all your fury; you turned back from your raging anger.
Wrath is cruel and anger is overwhelming,
Do not let yourself be quickly provoked,
they would have swallowed us alive, when their anger raged against us.
That is why the Lord’s anger erupted against this land, bringing on it all the curses
God does not restrain his anger;
Pour out your judgment
Who can really fathom the intensity of your anger?
A gentle response
